Procrastination Academy

We are sorry, but event is actually full.

Do you have trouble starting something new and end up postponing things a lot? You know that feeling when you know exactly what you should do, but you still can’t get yourself to do it? Or are you indecisive and feeling unable to choose what kind of future you want for yourself? Do you spend a lot of time doing things that are ultimately meaningless?

When we are distracted, it’s hard to persuade ourselves to fulfill the tasks that we should or want to do. As a result, we end up performing activities that only serve to fill our time. This can then cause stress, guilt, frustration, and a general feeling of failure.

We've prepared a program of intense anti-procrastination training for you. It consists of five consecutive workshops (2.5 -3 hours) over 5 weeks. Participants receive new theoretical knowledge each time and develop practical tools that they can apply to their everyday lives. The aim of the Academy is to create an active, supportive team environment.

Workshops: 6 pm to 8:30 pm

1) Motivation and finding your potential (26.9.)

2) Creating a personal vision (3.10.)

3) Self-discipline, productivity, and work efficiency (10.10.)

4) Satisfaction and emotional serenity (17.10.)

5) Objectivity and self-learning (24.10.)

The Academy will answer lots of questions about how people behave and their reasons, including:

  • Why do people procrastinate?
  • How does human motivation work and how
  • How do you find your strengths and use them to accomplish meaningful things?
  • How can we increase work efficiency and overcome our innate affinities for inefficiency, addiction, and vice?
  • What is decisional paralysis and how can I fight it?
  • What kind of time-management can help us?
  • How can I better manage my failures and stay focused on a positive future?
  • How can I learn the methods for developing self-esteem and other parts of my life?

A limited number of participants: max 15

Price includes all workshops and all working materials + a certificate at the end of the Academy.
