Why Can't You Get Anything Done? The Know-Do Gap for Artists.

The knowing-doing gap was popularized by Jeffrey Pfeffer and Robert Sutton. The knowing-doing gap is essentially: You know what you have to do. But, the doing doesn’t happen. Therefore, the results don’t happen.

Below are a few examples of how the know-do gap can show up in your life:

  • I KNOW I have to start that essay my professor assigned us at the beginning of the semester, but I DO it two days before it’s due.

  • I KNOW I should be getting medical help for this reoccurring problem, but only until I start coughing up blood is when I DO it (this example is a bit extreme, but you get my drift).

In January ArtReach will be doing another Grant Writing 101 workshop, with Paulina O'Kieffe, for their upcoming granting round.

Here's a sneak peek at the slides I will be presenting in January.
