Illustrated Goal Setting and Planning for Creatives

“I really felt for the first time in a long time that this course about productivity was truly helpful, I’ve taken different classes, courses, lessons… but this one I think is really good because It helps you to plan your goals ahead and take actionable and realistic steps. Really recommendable!!”

– Maria Rodríguez

Hey there, fellow creators!

Today, I want to dive into the world of productivity and share some valuable insights on how to manage your time and attention effectively.

Let’s talk about productivity because it’s all about finding the right balance and accomplishing your creative projects without feeling overwhelmed.

Productivity doesn’t mean doing more in less time. It’s about making the most of your work-life balance and focusing on what truly matters in your business and personal life.

Why Should You Learn from Me?

My interest in improving productivity grew when I worked at LEGO and later as a creative entrepreneur. Managing projects of all sizes made me realize that some tasks require more time or have higher priority than others. Where we choose to invest our time can make all the difference in successfully delivering and maintaining our projects.

What Will You Learn?

In this class, I’ll share my proven productivity system that I’ve refined over time. You can replicate it or tailor it to suit your own needs. We’ll cover various aspects, including managing tasks, prioritization, planning, deep work, and cultivating focus. We’ll also discuss the importance of regular reflections, establishing routines, and practicing mindful self-care. Additionally, I’ll provide tips on how to learn new creative skills effectively.

Throughout the class, we’ll explore different tools that can help you stay organized and boost your productivity. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in the class project, where you can apply the methods and tools you learn to prepare your quarterly, monthly, and weekly plans. Sharing your plans, even if they are still a work in progress, in the project section will allow us to support and inspire one another.

Who is This Class For?

This class is designed for creative entrepreneurs, freelancers, artists, and anyone interested in finding inspiration and improving their productivity. The goal is for you to enjoy your free time, feel accomplished, and leave behind the worries of an endless to-do list.

I’m incredibly excited to have you join this class. Together, let’s embrace productivity and discover how it can transform the way we approach our creative endeavors. Get ready to unlock your potential, increase your efficiency, and make the most of your precious time. Let’s embark on this productive journey together!

So, let’s dive in and discover how we can manage our time and attention effectively, accomplish our creative projects, and still have the freedom to enjoy life. I can’t wait to see your take on productivity, so let’s get started and make the most of our creative journey!
