Event Description

Learn the “Rush Syndrome” Symptoms—and How to Stop Operating at a Feverish Pace

Do you always feel in a rush—running yourself ragged in a daily battle to keep up? Do you dash from meeting to meeting, often feeling that your work is out of control and maybe you are, too? You’re stuck in a rushed mindset and suffering from hurry sickness—constantly rushing and feeling a pervasive sense of urgency at work even when it’s not necessary. In the age of acceleration, constant movement, and speed, you don’t know how to slow down.

Learn the dangers of rushing and how speed addiction can negatively impact your health, spike your stress level, and lower your work quality in this transformative webinar with America’s top coach, Joel Garfinkle. Garfinkle will show you why so many of us live our lives in rush mode, and how to stop always being in a hurry. He’ll also share techniques—such as his 10-question quiz—to detect the symptoms of rush syndrome. He will share strategies—such as ‘20 Solutions’ to break rush syndrome—and lessen the pressure to do it all and do it now.

After attending this session, you will be able to apply Garfinkle’s ‘20 Solutions’ to directly break the rush syndrome cycle. You’ll know how to utilize the #1 solution for hurry sickness—slowing down—and how to use slow thinking to develop your intuitive and creative mind. You’ll also know how to overcome the cultural obsession with time that keeps you constrained by your calendar schedule and the deadlines imposed on you.
