The Elysium Aesthetic

Week Eleven: Personal Crafting Schedule

Happy Monday! Welcome back to Acting Class Daily and Part Two of The Elysium Aesthetic. We continue all month with classes focusing on each of our three areas of lifelong growth: artistry, instrument and craft.

Today’s member-exclusive class introduces a powerful new tool to our Artistry section. Enjoy!

Did You Know?
90% of all membership monies go to our Young Elysium Artist fund (the other 10% goes to Substack), where members vote to award grants to young artists in need?

New to the work? These free introductory chapters are where we recommend you start: Kindred Spirits, What Is Good Acting?, Growing Excellence, The Muscles of Preparation.

This Month’s Focus

Part Two: The Olympic Spirit

Today’s Class

Personal Crafting Schedule

Today’s Target

​​It’s awesome to talk about the ideal and doing all the work

​It’s awesome having all these tools at your disposal to vanquish doubt, to inspire character, to know so darn much that you simply believe … that’s awesome. 

But having all these tools can also create a sense of guilt. 

​“Oh my gosh, look at all the things I’m not doing.”

​Today we’re introducing a powerful Olympic-worthy scheduler to forge our focus.

A teammate that helps us see how all the work we want to do - all the work we have to do - is always possible no matter our real-world time constraints.

​A powerful new tool that reveals the nooks & crannies of your available time, sets a plan to do your personal crafting work with personal professional pride, and ensures success arrives no matter what life throws your way.

​A lifelong teammate for your will, always ready to reveal the way.
