Posted by on Jan 14, 2018 in Past Events

3rd Thursday, January 18, 2018, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Mediterrano Restaurant Goal setting is a useful exercise, but what do you do when the New Year’s thrill has worn off and you’re discouraged at how life’s gotten in the way? The answer? Stop focusing on goals, and start focusing on your desires. On January 18th , we’re putting on a new type of goal-setting workshop. One that throws out all the “rules” and shows you how to stoke your own inner fire. It’s based on best selling author and speaker, Danielle LaPorte’s The Desire Map. Here’s how Danielle describes the revolutionary approach to resolutions: “A holistic approach to life planning, using your core desired feelings as the guidance system for your intention & goal setting.” Get ready for a workshop that’s inspiring and practical. Starting with five core areas of your life, you’ll dig into your core desired feelings and use those to guide you to what you want to do, have and experience. Join us Thursday, January 18th, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and leave fired-up for 2018! Agenda 11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.     Check in, casual mingling, delicious lunch 12:30 p.m. – 1:20 p.m.       Desire Mapping 1:20 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.         Wrap-up and close Cost $25.00...
