…Do something difficult.…Have you ever worked on a lengthy project that…you could dive into for months at a time.…Something significant that you can immerse yourself in and work all the angles?…These projects are challenging but they're also rewarding because…you know that not everyone could have done it.…From writing a book to making a movie to building a website.…Time consuming complex projects have a unique fulfillment attached to them.…They're also ideal for busting ruts.…They teach perseverance and patience.…They present multiple opportunities to encounter small problems…and solve them, giving you that feeling of success.…
But most of all, taking on something difficult…gives you an opportunity to accomplish something of significance.…Ruts can often be the result of labor we deem remedial or inconsequential.…When we take on something difficult, we create…greater purpose and can consequently feel more fulfilled.…Doing something difficult doesn't exclusively…mean taking on a tough project.…Instead, it means finding something that will take time…
The course is more resource than classroom, designed to be something you can return to each and every time you feel stuck on a project or stalled in your career. Come back anytime you need help taking a creative leap forward.
