Hi, I'm Deidre. In my posts, I talk about my voyage down the road of self-employment as a copywriting partner to designers, my achievements and roadblocks along the way, and what I’m learning as I go (with Marketing Mentor as my guide).
After the first class, I already know I’m going to leave with more direction and tools than I have now. And I know that this direction, and these tools—will be based on me and my personal strengths! Not a one-size-fits-all approach.
In class one, Ed said that if we’re not aware of our true genius, our innate gifts—then we spend a lot of our workweek doing things that bring us little to no joy. He said this malaise stands in the way of becoming truly productive. Makes sense, right?
What’s my true genius? My innate gifts? I have an idea, but I have a feeling there might be more clarity to gain. There are probably pieces I don’t know about. Ed gave a few simple assignments to help me hone in on them objectively.
Specific tips will come in the next two classes, but Ed mentioned that without this important step, we’ll just get more efficient at the wrong things, which won’t be sustainable or rewarding.
Also, Ed talked about flow. The course is going to help me find my flow (based on my true genius) and purposely create opportunities for it.
The thing I’m most excited about?
It sounds like this course goes beyond increasing productivity, and will also help me increase my joy and energy levels throughout my workday! I’m diving into the assignments and looking forward to the next class.
I’ll keep you posted!
