Busy But Good: Perspectives on Achievement
About this FieldTrip
Let’s talk about why we’re so bad at setting goals, why we should be doing it anyway, and how exploring the psychology around how we define success can help us to identify and pursue what really matters.
Some questions we’ll ask, and explore answers to, include: What social stigma do you have about success and goals? How do those function as psychological blocks that hold you back?
What are some other ways you could define success?
How can you achieve a healthy perspective about yourself that will help you create better goals?
Why do some people still like John Mayer?
This will be a 60-minute talk, followed by at least 30 minutes to ask questions of the speaker and mingle with each other. We’ll provide some snacks and beer.
About Creative Mornings: Field Trips
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
About Creative Mornings
In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.
Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals. The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme.
CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local partners, generous venues, and longterm global partners. Everyone is welcome. Everyone is creative. Just register beforehand to reserve your spot. And if you need a little help convincing your boss to let you attend, we’ve got you covered. Remember to set your alarm, and we’ll see you in the morning!
