"Most people overestimate what they can do in a day,
and underestimate what they can do in a year."

2022 is more than half over! How's your year going? What else do you want to make happen by the end of the year, in your work, in your art, or in your personal life?
Planning can be hard, and it's easy to get discouraged. Virtually all plans need course corrections on the way, whether minor or a completely new approach. That said: planning is a skill, and you can get better at it.
This Goal Crafting Intensive is an online workshop that guides you through a personal trajectory to orient towards the future with a combination of plans & creative improvisation. It helps you get clear on what's important to you—your goals and values—so that you can stay focused on what matters, whatever may come.
What you can accomplish with us:
The Intensive includes advance content so that you arrive ready to hit the ground running, instruction and coaching to provide you personalized support, and a practice group that meets weekly so you can continue learning with peers throughout the year.
I’m good at helping people get clear about their big picture and staying aligned with that big picture on a daily and weekly basis, over a longer period of time.
I’ve got a background in mindfulness meditation and helped develop a lot of the GCI content.
I’m particularly interested in working with individuals in organizational and management contexts, around topics like leadership, strategy, org design, change management, etc.
I've designed many productivity systems, the most well-known of which is of course Complice itself. I've also experimented with dozens of other systems, habits, and techniques for making my life more productive. I used to coach for Beeminder, so I'm a good person to talk to about hard accountability systems too.
I'm a great person to talk to if you need encouragement or guidance taking a leap from working a dayjob to pursuing your own thing.
I enjoy catalyzing flow through internal conflict debugging and creative responses to stuckness, along with meaning-making and mindset work. I can help you experience more coherence between what you’re doing and what you care about, build a supportive mindset to get your whole self on board for action, and troubleshoot systems for scaffolding your goals.
I also have quite a lot of experience in helping people integrate intense emotional or transformative experiences.
I’m a life coach for anyone at crossroads in their life asking themselves the question of “Who do I want to become?” My specialties lie in deconstructing internal narratives and limiting beliefs through gentle inquiry and presence with the experience.
I will help you in getting to know yourself better, making short- and long-term decisions that deeply align with your core self and ensuring you stay on the path that feels the most energizing and enlivening to you.
We have over a dozen other coaches with a variety of experiences and expertise, and each session has a different mix of those coaches depending on their availability. We'll have them introduce themselves so you know who to ask, or you can just post in your coach channel and we'll find the best person to answer your question.
We also have a directory of all past coaches that are offering ongoing 1-on-1 coaching, so you can reach out to them.
"The Goal Crafting Intensive gave me more clarity around how to create goals that strike a balance between focus and flexibility."
"The GCI workshop set a great tone for the new year—starting it in a growth-oriented way focused on building systems rather than setting commitments without follow-through."
75% of past participants we surveyed were
significantly more prepared for their year
compared to previous years, thanks to the GCI.

The scientific literature broadly agrees that goals have (at least) four important effects:
Some people (notably Dilbert creator Scott Adams) have claimed that instead of goals, you should have "systems". Nonsense. Have both.
At the Goal-Crafting Intensive, we'll talk about how to use goals effectively, while not falling into some of the common traps, like lost purposes or a mindset of pre-success failure.
