Ground Running is a homework club for artists!
A club where we hold each other accountable to get shit done.
The point is to collectively lift our game, use peer pressure positively and step the fuck up and create our own wins in these uncertain times.
When all this COVID eventually clears up we can hit the ground running.
THE LOW DOWN
Ground Running is a 10 week club with varied disciplines, it is designed for us all to collectively get our shit together so we can “hit the ground running” when covid finally fucks off.
There are 3 different tasks to choose from each week, so you can choose which task is best for your professional development.
It is all about kick starting the productivity at your own pace so you select which ones are relevant and able to fit into your schedule. If you fail to compete a task that week it will result in a $2 fine which will be donated to a charity.
Tasks will be posted and monitored each week via a privet FB page or direct email. I will track your progress on a spread sheet and send you motivation/reminders when needed.
The FB page is also used for motivation, troubleshooting, brainstorming and asking questions (no question is a bad question). Tips, tricks and advice will be posted along with the tasks and you can feel that sweet nummy dopamine every week when you complete a task.
Starting from the 21 June - 29 August
The tasks will fall into either a business, physical or creative category. This way depending on your focus you will always have a task to select from.
The club requires you to do one task per week, but you are welcome to do extra homework if you want!
Tasks will never cost money
Tasks will take between 1-3 hours
Business tasks are the full admin mode. Bills, web, socials, cv, dropbox and excel focused.
Creative tasks are designed to exercise and inspire your creative mind.
Physical tasks will always be achievable for any level. There has been a lot of feedback about lack of motivation physically, this is an extra for you.
Some tasks might be a bit confusing or too basic... I’m not a wizard, send positive advice/
feedback if necessary.
The $2 fine is there as an annoying deterrent. It’s more about your brain avoiding the baggage which comes with a fine. Also, $2 is a funny amount and is donated to the arts so it’s all positive.
If there is a task you think we would all benefit from please email, this is a growing collective project which benefits from feedback.
Tasks are designed to make you feel good. Push yourself in the areas you want to grow.
Letter from the Director.
Hopefully all this is all clear and you are keen to join!
If this all sounds like fun (and it will be, I’m all about the fun) send me an email and I’ll join you up!
My aim is to make sure we ALL to hit the ground running when we can, however we can.
Club starts on the 21 JUNE, let’s do this!
JOINING FEE - a sliding scale.
Studies have shown that you are more likely to follow through with something if you are invested and have someone or something keeping your accountable.
I know a lot of us are already poor at the moment, so the joining fee is a sliding scale depending what you can spare. Anywhere from $5 to $50 per person is good. If you choose to pay $15 that’s only $1.10 a week, total bargain!
Once you pay the joining fee I’ll invite you to the group and you can start your weekly homework.
Your fee pays for data entry, task lists, tips, task information, reminders, organising master classes and managing the group. This isn’t about making bank in a shiity time. If 30 people join and pay $10 each, I will make $7 an hour, which is enough for me.
Don’t worry if you are late in joining up, just email me when you are up to it. Getting motivated at the moment is bloody hard, if you are a week or 3 late it’s no probs…. you showed up and that’s the most important thing.
If you don’t want to pay a joining fee that’s cool, just email me and I’ll send you the full schedule for free for you to enjoy.
The aim of this is joy, encouraging, helpful and to come out of this ready to smash it!
