Most people find that there are some days when it is hard to find the motivation to accomplish what needs to be done, even those things that are important. Will Rogers once said, “Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.” Learning what accounts for the ebb and flow of levels of motivation in life and how to respond can help individuals be more productive. This workshop is for those times when it just seems hard to “get going” and will help you learn how to give your enthusiasm a boost.

We hope to see you there! Light refreshments will be served, and we will have door prizes.
