Do you have something on your bucket list that you’ve been wanting to do but haven’t gotten around to it? Maybe it is work related but maybe it’s personal. Many of you have plans to write a book, start a non-profit, plant a garden, take a road trip, etc. and you can never quite seem to get started. Sometimes our projects don’t make it into reality because they don’t seem as important as other people’s projects or they’re not “world changing”. But—what if the best way to change the world is to do that thing on your lists that brings a little more joy into the world? Perhaps it brings you joy. Perhaps your joy will bring others joy. And, perhaps your joy will make you a better leader.

In this session we will take a look how taking on a small (or not so small) project could make the world a little better place to live.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn how to identify perceived obstacles versus real obstacles
  2. Stop getting in your own way
  3. Pursue accomplishments that bring you joy
  4. Develop skills to overcome procrastination and inaction
  5. Start accomplishing something you’ve always wanted to do

This program is ideal for: 

  • Anyone who has an idea and/or would like to make the world a better place.
