10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. PST
I have an overactive imagination. I dream of projects I want to produce, skills I want to learn, people to interview, books to write and read (my TBR pile is almost as tall as my lamp), and future goals. On and on the list goes. Whenever I share what I’m working on with people whose brains don’t operate like mine, they usually respond in the vein of, “Why can’t you pick one thing and get really good at it?” That’s like telling a rabbit only to have one kit when biology has blessed them with a gestational period of around 30 days and can have up to 60 kits in a year (thanks, Wikipedia).
But something different happens when people with a similar imagination hear my story. They want to know how I can do all the things, and maybe, just maybe, my experience will help them understand their dreams and pursuits of multiple pursuits. Perhaps it’s because social media algorithms have amplified the voices that can narrow their interests to specific keywords or phrases. Or maybe it has to do with an informational society built upon genres and classifications that make it easy to store knowledge in a card catalog (look it up), database, or store shelf. That makes it challenging for people who are endlessly curious about everything and end up in the metaphorical junk drawer next to a screwdriver, pliers, and bag of miscellaneous parts.
It’s not easy to go against the expectations of others. However, it’s worth it as you follow your passions and spread your ideas like those randy rabbits. But you’re going to have to figure a few things out about how you work, your creative systems of content production, and shifting your focus from short-term wins to long-term fulfillment. And that’s what this workshop is all about.
There are three levels available:
No rabbits were harmed in the conceiving of this workshop, but they probably had a great time.
