Secrets of a Master Procrastinator: Productivity Tips for Inaction Heroes

Cathy Chiba will present her many secrets for getting stuff done despite tendencies to procrastinate… but the webinar description is still to be determined because, hey, that’s just how procrastinators roll.

If you’re interested in this webinar — then perhaps you, like me, are a master procrastinator. But you’re not just any procrastinator. You care about doing good work. In fact, you want to do great work. You’re a hero because you care.

The problem is, sometimes you feel like your tagline should read: “Inaction Hero”. Because, really, does this feel like your life? NOT. GETTING. THINGS. DONE. My life often feels like that, too. However, when you have procrastinated all your life, you learn a few things about being productive — even doing great work — when you’ve procrastinated yourself into a corner.

So in this webinar, I’ll share the following:

– tips for getting anxiety and overwhelm under control when you need to finish a project

– strategies to help you stay resourceful and flexible when you need to solve a problem quickly, and

– guidelines for optimizing your ability to be productive whenever you need to be, even if your natural mode seems to be “Inaction Hero”.

Curious? Then sign up for this webinar! And don’t worry if you’re not procrastinating about it. I’m not really procrastinating about this webinar, either — at least by my standards. See you on April 11th!

I want to take a specific course that isn't listed online. Will it be offered in the future?

STC rotates its courses every year as we try to offer the most popular ones within the first half of the year. Online courses are subject to change or are offered more than once per quarter. If a course is not listed, STC will offer it again in the following year.
