Progressing between workshops . . .

Posted by Michael Best on September 08, 2015 0 Comments

Have you ever left a botanical art workshop fired up with enthusiasm and then just not found the time to practice the new skills you learned? Do you find that life gets in the way of making time for what you would love to do?

The fact is that even the best of instructors can only teach new skills and inspire you to progress; the actual progressing is up to you. And that is where establishing effective practice habits becomes essential. But how?

Gretchen Rubin has the answer for you. She has just written an instant best-seller, Better than Before. It addresses the matter of developing effective habits and shedding the bad ones. There is no magic formula on offer, instead it's a process that starts with discovering how to recognize the internal and external forces that motivate you and hence affect your life.

As a first step, Rubin offers a quick test to complete online by clicking here. It's revealing and might even elicit a smile as she peels away layers of self-denial and maybe even guilt. It only takes a few minutes to complete the test but they could be a few of the most beneficial minutes you ever spend.

The next step would be to read the book and learn how to adjust your habits. Among other benefits, life should stop getting in the way of your botanical art progressing between workshops.
