Do you wonder why some days feel so satisfying and others feel like you’re on a never-ending treadmill demanding ever-faster speeds going absolutely nowhere? Sometimes you might even be doing the exact same things and have these contrasting experiences. What makes the difference?

The Misunderstood Art of Effectiveness is an in-depth look at this condition. These two vastly contrasting experiences have a simple yet profound difference at their source.

When your to-do’s are expressions of who you REALLY are, your time spent doing them is satisfying. When your to-do’s are connected to how you think you should be, your experience is frustrating and depleting. The challenge is that we often get so busy with our to-do’s, we don’t take the time to evaluate their source.

I’m sure you’ve had days that sound like this: I should get up early to prepare for tomorrow’s meeting; I should finish responding to these unanswered emails; I should get my team started on the next project; I should call my mom back; I should go to Jesse’s soccer game; I should make a healthy dinner; I really, really should exercise… A not so subtle pattern is revealing itself. When our lives sound like this, our experience is pretty miserable. Should, should, should, should, should, whatever happened to want? It is as though life has us on a leash and is just dragging us around.

We’re going to investigate what needs to be shifted so that your to-do list changes from “shoulds” to “wants.” And no, I don’t mean you’ll spend every day at the beach and never have to take the trash out again.  In some instances, this shift might mean changing some of the items on your to-do list, and in most cases, it will mean changing nothing on your to-do list, but rather altering the context in which you move through life. This course will help you reconnect with and discover why you do the things you choose to do (or not do). Really, really why. Operating with this knowledge is essential to living not only effectively but with the satisfaction we seek.

We will discuss WORKABILITY’s “Formula for Effectiveness” and provide you with an organizing binder that is designed to manage all of your to-do’s. Unlike many effectiveness programs, the majority of this workshop will not be spent learning how to use the binder. With all the amazing technology and extensive research on effectiveness that is available today, we seem busier, more harried, and ultimately less and less satisfied in life – the solution isn’t a planner or device. In this workshop you will spend your time investigating the connection between what you DO and what is truly important to you, and ultimately learn to bring who you ARE to more and more of your tasks.

The Misunderstood Art of Effectiveness will take place on January 14th, 2019 It will be an interactive and demanding conversational workshop that will begin at 6:00 PM. As it will be conversation based, please plan on up to 4 hours for the workshop. Please call our office at (914) 764-0250 for additional information.
