Spinning Up a Level — worksheet 1

Recently, Leah and I spent three weeks filming with Katrina Stewart, our spinning instructor for the new spinning course on the School of SweetGeorgia. It’s called Spinning Up a Level and we just started releasing the course content this past week. Now, in spending three weeks with Katrina and Leah, we had a couple great conversations which really got me thinking and so today we are going to talk about learning progression, impostor syndrome, and the importance of doing your homework.

Being a creative person and doing creative work is not a straight line path from idea to execution. Most of the time, I feel like it’s an internal struggle between my planning and my emotions, my interests and my confidence. So today, I want to talk about something that’s been coming up more and more recently in my life and that’s the idea of skill development and confidence in your skills.

Watch today’s Taking Back Friday vlog episode where I talk about the struggle with the question of whether we are “good enough” and how we can get better. To “do the work” to have physical proof of your skills and abilities, and to help with battling impostor syndrome.

I’d also love to hear from you… if intentional practice is a thing you do and how it’s helped you in your learning. Let me know if you feel like you’ve reached a plateau with the fibre arts or crafts that you do. And if you do join us on the School of SweetGeorgia, please pop a snapshot of your spinning worksheets in the forums! It would be so great for us to see how you are doing and to give you some encouragement and love along the way.
