The world is slowly opening up after an intense year of lockdown, isolation from friends and family, and working, learning and socializing behind a screen. You have powered through this intense season.  And you’ve done it while adapting to rapid changes at work, relentless deadlines, social unrest, and pandemic fatigue.

I don’t know about you, but I'm ready to post my out-of-office message and escape to the beach, road trips and girlfriend getaways indefinitely.

But that's not practical.

Our projects don't stop because the world is opening up.
Our work and responsibilities don't stop because it’s summer.

So how do we enjoy rest and play this summer while fulfilling our goals? 

Over the last few months, I have been researching and experimenting with finding a healthy rest-work-play rhythm and I want to share it with you.

Join The Genius Retreat to plan for a productive summer and learn practical ways to prioritize rest and play. At this virtual planning and wellness retreat, we will:

  • Reset your 2021 Vision for the second half of the year
  • Create 90-Day Sprints, action plans to accomplish your top 3 goals
  • Learn about healthy rest-work-play rhythms to boost your happiness and productivity 
  • Enjoy guided reflections and quiet time to assess your progress and reset your goals 
A Refreshing Approach to Productivity

I am on a mission to redefine productivity. I want to help you bring more balance,

ease and fun to everyday life as you release your genius to the world. 

You’ve come to the edge of burnout before -- 
  • waking up with your to-do list running through your mind before you’ve even had your first cup of coffee
 
  • the nagging feeling that you’re constantly running behind schedule
 
  • overwhelm with never-ending emails and pop-up requests 
 
  • difficulty winding down for a good night’s sleep
 
  • fading motivation for projects that once lit your fire
 
  • dragging to the end of the semester or quarter only to wonder how you made it out sane
Burn out is just around the corner if you don’t get this cycle under control.
You need more than a vacation or summer Fridays off.  It’s time to live a life that honors your need for rest, your commitment to work, and your desire to play.

One of my biggest takeaways from the Genius Retreat: Done not perfect! I’ll carry that with me when perfectionism tries to get the best of me.

I’m grateful for focus. As a recent empty-nester, I’ve been struggling with this transition and finding my purpose. I’ve always had goals and vision so it feels really good to get that back. I’m really thankful the Genius Retreat was shared with me on LinkedIn.

It’s been four months since the last retreat, and I am still working with friends from the retreat. We are holding each other accountable to our goals and our word for the year. I look forward to expanding this genius energy!

This was my first time with this group and it left me energized and grateful for the celebrations of tonight. I spend most of my life managing challenges and COVID has made me even more defensive. This period of just celebrating the joys and successes of other retreat members has been life-giving to me.
