Last month, I took a course with Margie Lawson called Defeating Self-Defeating Behaviors, which I would recommend to anyone.

Margie might have geared the course toward writers, but I’ve already talked a painting/designer friend and my non-writing cousin into taking it as well.

Within the first week, I identified 5+ things that will make me more productive forever. Certainly, I wasn’t feeling like things could be worse.

Example:
At the beginning of her course, I stumbled across an email draft of my 2013 goals. (Coincidence? I think not.) It was an appalling moment, looking at that list, and realizing I’d only accomplished one.

The agony… Out of seven fabulous goals, I’d pulled off…ONE.

Where I wanted to wallow, Margie made us examine our previous goal lists to find out WHY we were falling short.
