What Should I Do?!
Dealing with Uncertainty
A Course to Manage Stress & The Unknown
Do you dread uncertainty?
If you answered yes, we can help
We’re Jennifer and Kathryn and we’ve been doing this work for 19 and 15 years respectively, sorting through all the noise, distractions, and spirals of stress that our minds create. In doing this, we’ve become very good at spotting patterns and unworkable habits and helping our clients become aware of what is causing their current experience. If you find fault with yourself for not knowing what the next "right" thing is and consistently find yourself preoccupied with achieving more (while not feeling much satisfaction for what came before), this course can help. While there is no “quick fix” (much as our minds crave one), there are some important and fundamental conversations, practices, and strategies that are extremely helpful and we’d love to share them with you in Dealing with Uncertainty.
This course is for you if...
And willing to do introspective work to get at the root of your stress and dread of uncertainty.
You're in Avoidance Mode
You spend a lot of time imagining how to avoid bad outcomes as opposed to creating good ones.
You think in "Have tos" and "Shoulds"
You're burdened by constantly thinking about what you HAVE to do next instead of what you are inspired to do.
You're Stressed Out
And it's more than just occasional.
You Want a Sustainable Solution
You've tried talking yourself out of your stressful thinking and it hasn't worked and you are ready for a deeper solution.
You're afraid of slowing down
And you worry that one day you'll wake up thinking, "has anything I've done mattered at all?"
What is Stress?
Stress is often created when you aren't connected to who you are. This can show up globally, as in “What am I doing with my life?!” and this can show up topically as in, “How should I respond to my boss!?” Getting at the root of stress means getting to the root of you.
When we get frightened, we want control; we want to know the “right” answers. We think we dread uncertainty, but uncertainty isn’t the problem. We love uncertainty when it comes as surprise gifts or an unexpected bonus at the end of the year. Our fear and subsequent need to do it the “right” way, not have anyone judge us, or take the wrong step is where we cause a huge amount of stress and anxiety for ourselves.

This program really helped me...
This program really helped me to notice how often I put myself down, to understand how that compulsive habit got started, and to learn how to begin to untangle that web so I can live a happier, less stressed, more productive life.
It heightened my awareness...
I found this course valuable because it heightened my awareness of the kinds of comparisons I make that lead to self doubt and self deprecation and gave me some tools to help make me more aware of and more able to hear my own voice.
I am giving myself more room to be flexible...
Thank you both for the wondrous gift of this course. I am giving myself room to be more flexible and fluid around how I define myself. Plugging up the holes that I have drilled in my boat with compassion while I keep on rowing towards more integration. Thank you again and again.

When we are frightened, we try to get more certainty to alleviate our stress, but as you know that is a temporary fix at best; things are always changing.
This course will offer a way out of the angst-filled loop of seeking certainty, losing it, trying to get it back, and losing it again. As you move through this course and get clearer and clearer about who you are, don’t be surprised if your dread of uncertainty begins to dissolve...and perhaps the dread is replaced by enthusiasm for the OPPORTUNITIES present.

Consider We know the demands
The pressure to be seen as excelling and high achieving and to keep up with the pack. The pressure for “getting everything right” is STRONG.
We know that the idea of pausing, even for a moment, is daunting because you’ll end up three steps behind. And, we want you to consider that the consequences of not taking that moment might be causing the stressed-out experience that brought you to this course. Don’t wake up one day with the gut-wrenching knowledge that you’ve never adequately listened to your voice and never really lived the life that you could have, your life.
Let Go of the
We’re not going to fix you, we’re going to help you see that you’re not broken. This is really important for you to understand as you begin your course-work. We’re going to help you find a sustainable, lasting, nourishing way to live your life where you produce what really matters to you.

A gem of a Course...
Most of us have grown up believing comparisons and self-doubt are faults that we need to fix. But what if that’s not the case? Workability’s “The Hidden Gift of Self-Doubt” is a gem of a course. It helped me see how I could use my comparisons as clues to zero in on my purpose and actually enhance my effectiveness. I loved the varied experience of this workshop through videos, a workbook, and a Zoom call. I’ve been applying lessons from the course into my life – they work! Thank you Jennifer and Kathryn.
Helped me express my own voice...
I didn't realize how much my tendency to compare and judge was distracting me! This course helped me to recognize and express my own voice more assertively.
Left me feeling more capable...
Loved this course! The thing I enjoyed the most, was looking at what I think from a different perspective. One which left me feeling more capable and more accepting of others….
The other thing I liked was how targeted and focused the course was. Like many people, my plate is full, so the structure of this course was perfect for me – concise but powerful. A terrific, very useful course for people who don’t have lots of free time.
Don't miss this opportunity...
This course quickly and succinctly puts you on a trajectory for self-improvement... tremendous place to initiate a fresh beginning or a renewed kick- starter...the presenters are experienced and use their compassion and empathy to make it safe to begin or renew your journey...don't miss this opportunity!

I LOVED this course! Thank you so much! I loved your very personal, friendly, humorous style.
I loved the exercises on defining myself; the questions really helped me get greater clarity and go into greater detail about who I really am and what my values really are, and I continue to refer back to them.
THANK YOU! I loved the course. The call, the 2 videos, the workbook, the questions, all of it. This course helped me to further clarify and remember what my voice is. Thank you both again!
