From Purpose to Performance: The Essentials

  • Tsai CITY 254 Elm St., 3rd Floor New Haven, CT (map)

With the fall semester just underway, do you already feel overcommitted or stressed about everything you signed up for? Are you spending too much time working on unimportant tasks or assignments, while you fall behind on crucial projects? Do you find yourself wondering how to translate your interests and goals — whether they’re lofty thoughts about changing the world, vaguely formulated career interests, or problems you care about but have no idea how to tackle — into tangible, tactical to-dos?

Join Peter Boyd for From Purpose to Performance: The Essentials: a free, 90-minute workshop that will help you clarify your purpose, identify your priorities, and link all of this with simple day-to-day tools for maximizing your time here at Yale. No background or preparation is needed, and students from all schools and fields are welcome. You’ll finish the session with (the start of) a complete picture of your life that fits on one page — and gets you on the way to realizing your potential for the long-term.
