Ready for action

Ready for action!

On January 18th and 19th our subjects at the Mina de Ouro project started the Do it Today workshop. Together they discussed their goals, learned a little bit about our brain’s decision making process, watched Tim Urban’s Ted talk “Inside the mind of a master procrastinator” and heard about researches that tested different methods for goals setting and productivity.

 

 

After that, each one of them put a short term goal on paper, and then reflected on what they have do, or what needs to change in their routine, current behaviour or environment in order to achieve it, and then decided what would be her activities and objectives for the following week. 

 

Later, the girls attended the lectures of Professor Samantha Toledo from the Federal University of Paraná about career and education and of Professor Natalia Rese, also from the Federal University of Paraná, about the university, its possibilities and it's admission processes and scholarships. The lectures were organized in partnership with the Department of General and Applied Administration (DAGA-UFPR) and the UFPR Business School.

 

 Here we have the basic materials each of the girls received to help with the process: A clear folder, a pen, a note pad and the Do it Today booklet. On the last day of the project every girl will receive a craft paper daily planner for their future goals and plans, and the ones that achieved their goal at the end of the workshop will be rewarded with a blue envelope containing a gift card from a local bookshop.
