About This Class

Take the mystery out of turning ideas into action. This 72-minute class from Creative Strategist and 99u blogger Tanner Christensen gives straight talk on everything that matters (and everything that doesn't) when you want to be productive and create.

Learn how to define your drive, cultivate useful habits, and plan a roadmap for success. The best part? These principles apply to every creative career. Whether you're an aspiring artist, novelist, or entrepreneur, this class gives you strategies for getting stuff done.

Ideas matter, but action matters more. By the end of this hour, you'll start a daily ritual that gets you doing, creating, and producing in the world.

Just what I needed! Thank you!
Can't tell you how much I needed this class! I was lucky enough to be able to find a job that was also my creative hobby, but between working for a business and also doing the same thing as a side hustle, I lost a lot of the joy in it and fell into a bit of a slump. This class had me stepping back and realizing that I am exactly where I want to be, but I need to remember my drive and not just my goals. Watching this and making an outline to help organize my drive/goals already has me feeling less stressed about the job/side project I love. Thanks for a great class!
this is a class we all should watch everyday when we wake up!
