WHAT IS GET SHIT DONE?
Get Shit Done is a four-week online 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 four 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.
WHO ARE YOU?
My name is Bear Hebert, and I’m a life coach, writer, artist and activist. I’m a white, queer, working-class, genderqueer woman. I was born and raised in south Louisiana and I’ve lived in New Orleans since 2004. I have a background in activism and cultural organizing, and I teach this course with an eye towards interrupting the effects of systems of oppression in our daily lives.
WHAT DO OTHER PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THIS COURSE?
I loved Bear's 'Get Shit Done' course! I appreciated so much the space to be open and honest about where I get stuck, and to have the support and wisdom of others' struggles. This was one of the most effective and fun workshops that I have ever taken! —Laura Scholz, massage therapist
My biggest insight from Get Shit Done is that organizational tools and structure are extraordinarily helpful for me. I have resisted systems, structure, and routine for so long only to realize that I actually function as a much healthier, present and at peace version of myself when I utilize structures —especially when I am a participant in their creation. —Sarah Hollows, artist
Get Shit Done was so well organized and clear cut! There was space for feelings AND time for logistical mapping, and both helped me tremendously. —Meghan Johnson, massage therapist
If you think you need this course, but you think you do not have time for it, then you DEFINITELY need to take this course. Even after the first class I felt inspired and motivated towards my dreams and goals (both short and long term) in a way that I never have before. This course has really changed my life! —Sivani Gelfand, Religious Educator and Reiki Master
Get Shit Done really helped me to come to terms with the fact that my future is now, and that all of the things that I want to happen "some day" need to be allowed to take up space in the current moment. I'm thru-hiking the entire Appalachian Trail this summer/fall, because I've always wanted to, and if not now, when? —Lauren Valla McAvoy, sculptor
Get Shit Done really helped me re-frame some of the toxic paradigms around productivity that leave me feeling like shit when I get stuck in a rut. You should do it. It's absolutely worth your time. —Steph de Wolfe, Nonprofit Consultant
TELL ME ABOUT THE LOGISTICS
We meet October 7-28, 2018.
Sessions are Sundays from 1pm- 4ish pm Central time.
What’s with the -ish? Class officially meets until 3pm, but I strongly recommend blocking off an extra hour of implementation time to complete the work assigned in class. This is one strategy for making sure you actually Get Shit Done, as opposed to just putting it off until right before next week’s class.
We meet online via Zoom, an online video conferencing platform.
Classes are recorded so if you can’t make it live you can watch the replay!
