What is it?
Get Shit Done is a six week course that teaches productivity skills for weirdos. This is not another listicle of productivity hacks or a corporate efficiency bootcamp. This is real-life strategy for how to get clear, take action and Get Shit Done.
Who is it for?
For the holy weirdos and the blessed freaks. For the overworked healers. For the burned out activists. For the scattered artists. For the harried creatives.
For anyone trying to divest from the cult of busy without divesting from your dreams.
What will I learn?
You’ll learn how to:
organize your time efficiently without turning into a robot
get explicitly clear about what you want to do
clarify WHY you want it
break your goals down into manageable steps
plan how you’ll execute those steps in a timely fashion
overcome overwhelm when your To-Do List is a mile long
stop your worst self-sabotaging habits
work softer, not harder
make time for the stuff that’s slightly “unnecessary” but utterly important for your soul and your sanity.
You’ll learn a clear, replicable strategy you can apply to all your goals/projects/dreams in the future. At the end of six weeks, you’ll leave with a concrete plan for how to move forward and Get Shit Done.
What kind of Shit will it help me Get Done?
All kinds of things, including but not limited to:
The art project you work on in your “spare time”, that collaboration you’ve conversed about over drinks, the back-burner book you write in the shower one paragraph at a time, the songs you compose on your bike, and/or the epic trip you fantasize about when you’re procrastinating.
It might also help with the new business venture you want to start, the five years worth of taxes you need to file, the organization you’re talking about founding with your BFF, and/or the meditation practice you’re going to start (tomorrow).
Why do I need to know how to Get Shit Done?
I think you know the answer to this already but...
Because you make time for the stuff that’s necessary (because capitalism) but struggle to make time for the stuff that’s unnecessary but utterly important for your soul and your sanity.
Because you have ideas for really cool shit that the world needs.
Because you struggle to actually do said cool shit.
Because so much of your time gets eaten up working for money.
Because it takes skills to have time for anything else.
Because not Getting Shit Done plunges you into a pit of existential dread.
Because spending one more day not doing the shit you really want to do might kill you.
Because while your worth is not your work, doing your soul work is radical and utterly necessary for you and for the world.
Tell me about the logistics.

What do other people say about working with you?
I felt much more solid and empowered after the workshop to take on my life with confidence and less fear! --Sarah Rubbins-Breen
Before the workshop, I felt all-over-the-place and nervous, like, What am I going to do? How am I going to fulfill my dreams? How will I ever make my life how I want? Am I going to fuck things up for myself?
The skills and tools for planning and organizing - not only my to-do's, but also the dreams and goals I have for my life - were super exciting to learn. With these tools, I feel like the BIG big wants in my life aren't so terrifying or far away.
I can name my dreams and by naming them, I can address their parts, piece by piece, in a manageable and effective way. -Kristen Gremillion, yoga teacher and artist
Being given space to focus on myself and my goals and the impediments to them reminded me of how important it is to take time with those things rather than to simply let them happen. It gave me tools to continue thinking through those goals on a big scale but also in the particulars of my daily life, which I think is incredibly useful. -Rebecca Peters-Golden, author
