"Time Management for Creatives: Seize the Day Before the Day Seizes You"

Description: Creatives often feel overwhelmed by an increasing workload, family commitments, and all the other responsibilities that life brings. COVID-19 has only accelerated this leading to an unmanageable mental load. This pressure can intensify if creative work is only part of your job. In the past, many of us have naively thought that through hard work and energy, we could force our way through anything. Ultimately, being the embodiment of being busy all the time is a sign of being disorganized. In this session, Todd will walk you through the steps he followed to stop being reactive to everything and how he established a few simple principles, methods, and tools to be able to seize the day and reclaim his life on his own terms.
