This lab will help people overcome procrastination, analysis paralysis, and choice overwhelm by discussing key topics in visioning, goal-setting, prioritization, planning, time management, and productivity. The course is especially geared towards creatives, changemakers, and visionaries with big ideas who want to match those big ideas with consistent implementation.
We don’t flourish merely by thinking and dreaming - we flourish by converting ideas and intentions into action and finishing the stuff that matters. But to do meaningful things in the world, we need to start by understanding what matters to ourselves. This lab starts by helping you identify your values, priorities, and themes and ends with practical skills and tips to help you become more productive, intentional, and successful members of their communities.
Thursdays: February 2nd & 16th and March 16th & 30th from 6:30-9:30pm
Use games to help save the world! Participants in this Lab will choose a social justice area they would like to address. From there, you’ll team up around your social justice topics and develop a game to address at least one element. For example you might focus on raising awareness, changing behavior, or identifying strategies to solve regional issues. Through your game you’ll develop multiple different mechanics to address that element while learning about game thinking, methods, and concepts, psychology, motivation, fun and engagement.
Friday, March 3rd from 6-10pm & Saturday, March 4th from 9-5pm The Lab will provide experiences for questioning, creative thinking, and innovative actions.

During the Lab, participants will find that there are systems to question, undergo exercises to develop creative thinking, be given opportunities to use creative thinking, and afforded a chance to uncover innovative approaches that are simple, but powerful.
Saturday, March 18th from 9-4:30pm & Saturday, March 25th from 9-4:30pm There is only one person responsible for your financial health: you. Become the CFO for your life. In this course, we'll talk about the seven levels of financial maturity, from financial dependence or living paycheck to paycheck, to saving minimally and lastly, having financial freedom. Most people live their lives unconscious about money and because of that, live in financial fragility. We'll explore the influence the hidden assumptions of consumption and debt in our capitalist system and help you reclaim ownership of how you spend your time + your energy. Once achieved, financial independence gives you the chance to live a fully honest and authentic life.
