About the event
Join us for this interactive class created by The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute. You can attend the single class or sign up for the whole six-week lecture series How Success Thinks.
LESSON 6: FAILURE TO EXECUTE
There is often a gap between establishing goals and resolutions, and then executing them. What are the obstacles to being able to follow through and persist?
The lesson explores the phenomenon of procrastination, and suggests several solutions, including Angela Duckworth's theory of Grit to provide insight for individual persistence. The lesson also integrates the Jewish concept of seder histalshelut - a model from Jewish mystical teachings that informs the creative process as a framework for the discussion.
While definitions of success vary by society and culture, and from individual to individual, most people are driven to succeed: to perform well and accomplish their personal and professional goals.
Countless books, subject matter experts, seminars, and workshops promise to reveal the secret to success. The recent development of the Positive Psychology movement responds to the need for the empirical, scientific study of how to cultivate a satisfactory and fulfilling life, rather than focusing solely on mental illness.
How Success Thinks, a new six-week course from the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute, draws on the findings of Positive Psychology and other social science research, as well as classic Jewish thought, to offer personal insights and strategies for success.
