Willpower vs. Value Power

A Free 1-Hour Virtual Class

The class was recently held, but you can still register and get a recording.

What causes willpower to give out just when you need it? Why are you sometimes unmotivated to take important actions that "should" be motivating? How can you overcome the temptation to procrastinate or resistance to getting started? The answer to these questions rests on knowing the difference between willpower and value power.

In this session, you will learn:

This is a hands-on, working session. Come with a task that's stalled to think about. Leave with a tool to help you get it done.

Participate by video (Zoom) or phone only--your choice.

Sign up now! This is a jam-packed hour. Afterwards, I will stay on the phone answering questions for up to 30 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Is this video or audio?
A: You can join by video with Zoom, or by audio only with the phone bridge. Information for both ways to attend will be sent to you. You will get a PDF of any visuals, so you can follow along even if you are phone-only.

Q: What do I need to join by video?
A: You need a computer with reliable internet access, a microphone, and a video camera. You will need to download the Zoom app and test it out. I recommend testing it out well in advance. Here is a room to join to test: Just click on that link and follow the instructions. Then call into the Zoom "meeting room" for the event 5 minutes early to make sure you don't have any technical problems.

Q: What do I need to call in by phone?
A: You can call in with any phone. Skype or landlines are best. Cell phones often have noisy connections. But the bridge can handle them all. Details for calling in will be emailed to you.

Note: to "raise your hand" to ask questions during class, you need to be able to press * 2 on a touch tone keypad.

Q: Can I call in for free over the web ? What about Skype?

A: Yes. There is an audio only web connection link you will be sent with the dial-in information, which can work with your computer. If you want to dial in by Skype, call the telephone number and use the touch tone keypad to enter the conference ID and to "raise your hand."

Q: Can I download a recording of the class instead of listening live?
A: Yes. If you sign up in advance for the class and can't make it for any reason, you will have a short window right after it in which you can download an audio-only recording. Everyone who signs up in advance will get download information after the class is held. But try to attend live, so you can ask questions and get the full benefit of the teleclass.

Q: Are there written materials for the class?
A: Yes, there will be a few handouts and reference material sent to you.
