About this workshop

In the information age, we are bombarded with ideas about what success is supposed to look like, Yet, do you actually want to work from home, become an origami expert, lead a revolution, or perhaps take up dog walking?

In this interactive and interdisciplinary class, we will look at the metrics we traditionally use to define what we want in our jobs and in our lives. We will talk about money, status, and what success really looks like. We will talk about dream jobs and dream lives, and what that means for us.

We will look at the history and cultural meaning of success, drawing on concepts from philosophy and psychology to business and history, literature and neuroscience to mindfulness and art, sociology, and political thought. We will dive into what success might mean for you, and what gets in the way. We will flesh out what success is supposed to look like, what it really looks like, and what we want for ourselves. We will finish with actionable steps and realistic, practical tools for making this happen in your life.
