Create Your Work
Join the Sunday Check-in Accountability Group, facilitated by Susan Loughrin
Next Session: March 1-June 1, 2018
Creativity takes time, space and energy. In order to make that time happen, there are ways that we can support our underlying structure and build in that time we need. One of those ways is placing focus on our weekly “to-do” or priority list.
I know what you are saying…“What does a to-do list have to do with creativity?”
Let me ask you a a few questions…
- How do you make more “time” in your day to create?
- What does a typical day or week look like for you?
- How often do you reflect on your week to see where your time goes?
- What would it take for you to hold yourself accountable to your own “time”?
Take a moment to answer those questions before you read on. What do you notice?
Allow me to now say that there IS a way to get this time and structure into your daily life so that you have more time to create!
The Sunday Check-In Accountability group will help you do just that.
What people are saying…
We are adult people with jobs, responsibilities, and tasks galore. Very often, there is more to be done in a week that we can reasonably accomplish. So why one more thing? Why a check-in group?
The Sunday Check-In group is a space just for YOU and your creative goals. For me, the Sunday Check-In Group gently holds me accountable to showing up for myself in the midst of the busy-ness of life.
It keeps my goals for creativity within my weekly routine, rather than as a dream that might be fulfilled “when I eventually have the time.”
My writing life has become less of a fringe notion and more of practice that I embrace in my day-to-day life, because I know that Susan and my mastermind buddies will be waiting for me, cheering me on from cyberspace. The check-in group helps me to keep my writing practice alive, one goal, one priority, one week at a time.
The Sunday Check-In group is like a virtual artists’ colony. . . it’s filled with like-minded makers. . . . writers, artists, scholars, crafters, musicians. . . who benefit from the solidarity of knowing that they are not in this pursuit alone. We have other makers from all over the world walking along side of us, excited to see what our artist friends have created and accomplished this week.
How do you set your intention to ensure that you make time for your creative work?
The Sunday Check-In Group will be a place where you can be held accountable for your weekly planning. This group will be a safe place to center each week and reflect on how you wish to spend your time.
Ready to register now?
- Saturday “reminder” email for the “Sunday Check-In” – to reflect and write on the following:
3 “priorities” you wish to pursue for the week

- Private Facebook Group
Our private Facebook group will be our communication connection to list those 3 “priorities” each week. (You will need to have a Facebook account.)
The group will be facilitated by me, Susan Loughrin, with a mid-week check-in and an end of the week “reflection” time
- Each week you will receive an audio recording by Susan that will lead you though the “how” and the “why” of setting priorities each week
- Weekly audio meditation to support your mindfulness throughout each week
This session will run March 1-June 1, 2018

The support and wisdom of others around us keeps us energized and grounded as we travel forward. This accountability group will be your chance to connect with one another and continue to learn and grow over the next few months – holding yourself accountable to your own creative goals and getting you time in your schedule to create!
What people are saying…
The Sunday Check-in helped me to focus on what I wanted to accomplish and to set reasonable goals for my creative work. Before I began the Sunday Check-in, I would set too many goals for the week leaving me feeling like I had failed to accomplish all the things I had planned to do.
For me I am a very goal orientated person, so if I tell a group of people I am going to do something, I do it. Working in an accountability group allowed me to see others go through a life struggle and keep on track with their goals; that is inspiring.
Limiting my check-in list to 3 things in the Sunday Check-in made it something I could accomplish and feel good at the end of the week for completing the goals.
The Sunday Check-in structure is great! Each Sunday’s “Thinking” (planning) time allowed me to think about what I wanted to accomplish and focus on during that week. This set me up to focus my energy on my goals allowing me to focus my energy and have a plan. Making actions and activities line up with my goals was a great way to make “TIME” in my busy life. I spent my time more efficiently.
I am called to create and share that love of creating art with others. So focusing my energy on my priorities in that direction helps me to resist distracting energy sucking activities.
While Being a part of the Sunday Check-ins, many wonderful creative life changing projects were completed. One wonderful thing after the other. I will definitely be a part of Susan’s group again. Well worth it. Best bonus is I was able to connect with some amazing new friends.
