About This Class

Join designer and author Adam J. Kurtz for 5 quick exercises you can do TODAY to get clarity, focus, and renewed direction for your yourself & your creative career. 

Sometimes you have all the techniques, and you just need a little push to make sure you're in the right direction. Other times you're so overwhelmed that you kinda forget the whole point of everything!

Each of these simple exercises will get you thinking about what really matters to you — setting the foundation for your creative decisions going forward. We'll hang out together and talk about how crazy life gets sometimes as you work through the 5 steps.

This class (/pep talk/art therapy/joking around with a guy you don't know) is perfect for freelancers, creative business owners, designers, makers, creators, emerging artists... basically anyone who's working so hard that they're forgetting they're actually a human being with their own unique core values.

Absolutely loved it! It was very personal and cathartic! If I could reccomend only one course to someone starting Skillshare, it would be this one! Thank you so much, Adam!

Really enjoyed it. It's a bit more spiritual/metophorical but I like that. People are so not in touch with their emotions anymore, this really brings it back a bit. I feel like it really helped me face some of my smaller demons and also highlighted some of my most precious belongings and moments. :-) Gyor Moore Art Director
So fun, practical and insightful. Thank you for this class.
