About This Class

Have you ever wanted to do your own 365 day project?

Maybe you’ve always wanted to learn how to draw, or you want to get better at photography, or you want to build a business while holding down a full time job. In this 30-minute class, I will help you design a plan that will keep you motivated, accountable, and committed to completing your own 365 day project - in just 10 minutes a day - whatever your goal may be.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn a new skill, undertake a huge creative endeavor, or get better at a skill you already have, this class is for you.


What you could do

My name is Cynthia, and by day, I am the Lead Designer at a financial technology startup. By night, I run an Etsy business, Wonton In A Million - and I write about it all over at Medium. I have used the 365 day framework to complete a multitude of personal projects. It's so flexible that you could apply it to almost anything you want to accomplish:


Imagine how much of your dream you could build if you worked on it just a little bit - every day - for the next year. 

How much of your book could you write? How good might you be at calligraphy? That's what this class is going to teach you how to do.

Through 8 short video lessons, I’ll be helping you design a plan to address the 5 important questions you need to answer in order to kick off - and successfully complete - your own 365 day project:

  1. What is going to be your minimally viable daily deliverable?
  2. When will you do the work?
  3. How will you stay motivated?
  4. What will you do first (and second, and third)?
  5. What’s your light at the end of the tunnel?

So if there's something you've always, always wanted to learn, or there's a huge creative project you've always wanted to take on, or there's something you want to do more of or get better at, this class will set you up with the habits and systems you need to stay motivated, accountable, and committed to completing your very own 365 day project.

Are you excited to see what you can build? 'Cause I am.

What a wonderful quick class - and coming at the very right time. I'd been thinking of doing something like this - it's daunting! - for awhile, but putting the steps in place made it concrete and very do-able. Thanks, Cynthia!
