Ending Overthinking

getting out of our heads and into the world

Our problem: Overthinking
Our solution: Triggering clarity

How do you draw a line between brainstorming and overthinking? From writing a paper to starting a business, exercising or making a trip, we may get lost in thoughts that prevent us from taking that first step. Overcome procrastination, fear and overplanning! This evening workshop aimed at university students will give you the A-B-3 to trigger clarity and get things done. Just start!
