We know that pursuing a dream is hard work. Which is why we’re excited to announce a new signature DreamBank program! Dream Academy is a skills-based virtual learning experience designed to help you overcome the most common obstacles in dream pursuit. This classroom-style program will partner with distinguished experts and professors to guide you through a curriculum consisting of video lectures, guided discussions, individual homework and create a shared community for you to learn within. Each five-week session will address a specific obstacle that commonly gets in the way of pursuing our dreams and then give you the tools and skill development to overcome it.
Registration is open May 3-21, and the course will begin June 8.
Introducing our First Course:
Making Time for What Matters
Sometimes it feels like we run our lives on autopilot. We wake up, grab our phones, respond to emails, work, check emails again and go to bed. We're busy, stressed and burned out. And at the end of the day, week or month, we often look back and ask ourselves: when was the last time I did something for myself — or my dreams?
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way. Join author and designer, John Zeratsky, for an introduction to Make Time, a simple framework that will help you focus on what matters every day. Developed as an antidote to the fast-paced, hyper-connected culture of modern life, John’s 2018 book, “Make Time,” written with co-author Jake Knapp, is a rallying cry for reclaiming control over your time and attention. Today, thousands around the world are joining in their call to reject the defaults of busyness and distraction and make time for the dreams they want to pursue.
In this enlightening course, you'll identify your biggest time stealers, choose your top priorities, redesign your daily schedule and make intentional changes to how you use technology to support your productivity and well-being. Let’s get started giving your dreams the time they deserve!
How Is This Different from a Typical DreamBank Event?
Here at DreamBank, our goal is to support you in your dream pursuit in many different ways, which is why we have several signature programs! Here's what you can expect:
We'll meet weekly over the course of several weeks to dig into the learning together in a classroom setting. Then, we'll head into smaller discussion sessions to deepen the learning.
Each Dream Academy course will have a dedicated workbook created by the instructor, designed to give you hands-on learning to help you overcome the obstacle that each course is focused on.
Each week you'll leave with tangible takeaways and homework, so be ready to do some work between each session!
We'll have an exclusive course platform where you'll be able to connect with other members and re-watch sessions from the week.
