Does this story sound familiar?
Once upon a time . . .
A new year approaches and we start dreaming and scheming about what we want to accomplish in the upcoming twelve months.
We feel a sense of new-found optimism and promise. Time is precious. And at the start of the new year, it seems abundant and expansive. We stride into the new year with our goals, intentions, aspirations, and resolutions held high. Time is on our side. We are hopeful.
And then . . . time passes quietly - almost imperceptibly. Tick, tick. And then, we're well into April or May when the buzz of the new-year potential wears off, and we realize, like Dr. Suess, "How did it get so late so soon?"
Suddenly, abundance turns to scarcity and there's no time for optimism. We've got to get real, and get busy. And so, we opt to try to catch up, or simply give up. I mean, what were we thinking?
This is why how you start matters.
How you start the year, out of the gate, sets the stage and the tone. It predicts the future.
And that's why I want to rewrite that tired story with you - and start strong in 2019.
Not frantic. Not freaked. Not frenzied. Not foolhardy. Strong.
Are you game?
What if... in the first three months of 2019, you had already made tangible, bankable, real-life progress on your goal (or goals) for the year?
What would be possible in 2019 if, in the first three months, you were ahead of the game, rather than running to catch up?
What if the first three months propelled you into the most productive, fulfilling year ever?
It's doable. It's possible. I promise.
I invite you to join me and other like-minded people who want to make the most of their time, energy, and effort.
In this simple, 11-week Power Start, I'll guide you in making progress on your goal(s) in a way that is doable, sustainable, and repeatable. In a way that works. That's tested.
I'll show you "under the hood," so you become more attuned to how your brain and body work and why that matters in accomplishing your goals. We'll look at the art and science of goal attainment, including:
How to design goals and a plan that propels action
How habits form
How to keep moving (when you don't feel like it)
How to stir motivation
How to deal with distraction
Why measuring matters and how to do it
How to set the conditions for success
What derails us and the work-arounds
How to cultivate a performance mindset (and why that matters)
How to transform set-backs
And more . . .
You'll make progress on your goal(s)... AND you'll learn the mechanics of accomplishment, so that you can rinse and repeat to make progress on your goals a matter of routine.
How will this work?
Beginning the week of January 14, I’ll guide you in a deliberate process to design your goals and make progress toward them.
Weekly Focus: For 11 weeks, I’ll provide a practical focus for the week delivered in pre-recorded video, audio, or live stream formats. Throughout the week, I'll provide supplemental content on the focus for the week.We’ll keep it simple, bite-sized, and focused.
Engaged Community & Mentoring: You’ll have opportunities to ask questions (and get them answered) and to share your wins and challenges. I'll be mentoring and coaching along the way. Come up against a roadblock? I'll help you find your way around it.
Starter Kit: Before we start, you'll receive a goal starter kit to help you zero in on goals for 2019.
Why does this work?
To "up-level" performance, you need two things: expertise and accountability. And that’s what you’ll get through this Power Start program. You’ll have tested techniques to try out and a band of go-getters (like you) to help boost your own performance.
Why 11 weeks?
Because Rome wasn’t built in a day. And, we need enough time to build habits (which, btw, takes longer than 3 weeks); and a visible end date to keep the focus strong and make it manageable.
We'll start the week of January 14.
We'll conclude the week of March 25.
How much does it cost?
Where will it happen?
Productivity Power School (here): Content will be posted each week in the Productivity Power School on the Teachable platform. This will allow you to access content that is organized and easy to find. (FYI: There is an app if you want to access on iPhone/iPad).
Facebook Group: There will be a private Facebook group where you will also find content posted - since that is convenient for many. (If you're not a Facebook user or fan, no problem - you'll be able to access all the material on the Teachable site.)
Some weekly content may be through Facebook Live or Zoom calls. If you're not able to participate live, you can access the video in the Facebook group and the Teachable platform (the video of this live streams will be put the Teachable site).
Anything else? (Bonus)
If you enroll in Power Start, you'll receive $100 discount for the self-paced, online Workflow Mastery course to use in 2019 - if you like.
And if you are currently enrolled in the Workflow Mastery course, go here to request a coupon code for $100 discount on Power Start, or check the Workflow Mastery Course or Facebook Group (it's posted in both places).
The first three months of the year are golden. If you can use this time deliberately, you can change the trajectory of your year.
So, bring your goals and aspirations – whether about health, habits, career, personal or work projects, skills, interests, or more...
By March 31 (when everyone else is realizing a quarter of the year is past), you’ll be smiling....
You’ll have made progress on your goal(s) and positioned yourself for a productive year.
And, you will have learned techniques to maintain this momentum.
How you start matters.
I hope you’ll join us.
Productivity Trainer & Coach
(How you'll feel on March 31, 2019)
Hello! My name is Lindsay Satterfield.
I teach and coach people like you - in groups or solo - how to be productive, how to make that "dent" or difference - in a fast, fascinating, and messy world.
I can show you how to regain control, make space, find time, get clear, and accomplish the things that are important to you and your work - while staying calm, cool, and collected. I draw on findings from brain science - so that solutions work with your brain, rather than against it.
I work with professionals in small businesses and large enterprises in international development, non-profit, for-profit, and government sectors. I share my expertise with clients globally - from Latin America to Africa, the Far East and beyond - because it seems everyone everywhere is looking for ways to survive and thrive in the information-saturated, constantly changing, always-on world of work (and life).
When I say professionals - I mean those who are (happily) serious about the business of work and life. They know that time is precious and effort matters
It's a privilege to work with people like you - the movers and shakers, the doers and makers, who each day wake up to do it all again and give their best to their duties and dreams.
