I’m happy to announce our first activity of the year, on a subject that is perfect for these initial months, when we still believe that we can achieve the lofty goals that we set for ourselves in the New Year, if only a little thing didn’t get in our way: Procrastination.

How often do you feel like you can "move mountains"? First, you make big plans but then, somehow, don't manage to execute them? What stands in the way? Why, even when we know that a particular task is important, we start avoiding it and instead engage in all kinds of unnecessary activities? Why do we leave things for the last minute?

Wouldn't it be nice to become more productive and more rational with our time? Wouldn't it be nice to be more energetic and fulfilled? Just imagine how many nice activities, like hobbies and fun time you could have with family or friends once you stop postponing important assignments. If you want to better understand procrastination behavior and ways how to tackle it, come to this practical workshop.

IMPORTANT: Please note that this workshop will be facilitated in English.
