5-4-3-2-1 Let's Do This!  KBP Basic Photography Class

Last month I attended Imaging USA, a national photography convention, and one of the speakers was Mel Robbins.  I researched her before the conference and honestly didn't even want to attend her session but she was a keynote speaker and there were no other options at that time.  I watched some of her videos online and thought "Uh, another motivational talk", "I know this stuff" and "She's not going to tell me anything I don't already know".  Well, I was right . . . and wrong.  Her session had a big impact on me and is one of the reasons I'm offering this class.  She talked about the 5 Second Rule and how to apply it to your every day decisions.  

Here are a few of her points that resonated the most with me:

  • "You may not be able to control the situation. But you can always control your reaction and your decisions."  There's an amazing amount of truth to this, right?  This was something I instantly thought I needed to reiterate to my children.
  • "Our biggest obstacle to success in life and business is often ourselves."  This is the part I felt I knew. I always felt like I knew what I needed to do.  My biggest problem was getting myself to JUST DO IT.  This is where the 5 Second Rule comes into play.

The concept behind the 5 Second Rule is to trick your brain and unlock the power of decisions. The moment you have an instinct to act on a goal, you must 5-4-3-2-1 and physically move yourself into action before your brain has a chance to talk you down.  This is a simple but amazingly true concept. You have the thought "Oh, I should. . . " and then seconds later the excuses and procrastination follow. The goal is to beat those excuses and procrastination to the punch and JUST DO IT.  Answer that call, send that email, fold that laundry, or in my case today . . . . offer that class.

So here we are . . . . I'm FINALLY scheduling the class that I've been thinking about and talking about for over a year.  And my challenge to you is to 5-4-3-2-1 act.  If you've been feeling like you want to learn more, like you need a little nudge in the right direction, like you want to figure out how to use that fancy camera you have. Here's your nudge. This class is bargain priced at $100 for 4 1/2 hours of class time. The first 3 hours will be instructional time and the last 1 1/2 hours will be hands on implementation. The class is scheduled for February 19th 1:00-5:30. This will be a small group class of no more than 10.
