The first response I got back when I sent out the link to the Half-Finished to Done Intensive sales page was this: “That weekend looks intense.”
Old me would have gotten insecure and worried that it was too intense.
New me? Says “Hell yes it’s intense.” This isn’t for the faint of heart.
Here’s the truth: You’ll be tired after the two-day Half-Finished to Done Intensive. You’ll probably want a heck of a lot of sleep afterwards.
But here’s what’s also true: You’re probably already tired.
You’re probably tired from procrastinating, avoiding your project, resisting, feeling guilty, and never feeling completely “off,” even when you’re trying to relax.
Here’s the difference: After the intensive, you’ll still sink into bed feeling depleted…but this time, you’ll also feel relief, satisfaction, accomplishment, and a feeling of completion.
You’ll also likely wake up the next day energized, instead of full of dread.
This reminds me of a story my mom told me awhile back, that’s been stuck in my head ever since.
Back in the day, she was thinking about joining an intensive program, similar in intensity to the Half-Finished to Done Intensive. Worried about the program, she said to the instructor, “I hear it really uses you up.”
The instructor looked her square in the eye and replied, “What are you saving yourself for?”
I extend the same question to you: “What are you saving yourself for?”
I’m all about rest periods in life, but I’m also for jumping in headfirst, sprinting, and letting yourself fall into bed at the end of the day feeling that satisfied exhaustion that only real, meaningful growth gives you.
