Forcing Functions

Jeff and I have great set of students in the shop this week. As always, I learn just as much from them as I hope they learn from me.

Today is day six of seven. It's a critical day.

Everyone MUST get their chairs assembled so they can weave the seats tomorrow and take home a completed chair.

We're all mentally drained. We're physically tired. Our bodies are sore.


And I have no doubt everyone will succeed.

This is a forcing function created by an in-person class.


"No one leaves today until their chair is assembled."


I'm still not sure how to replicate this for my remote students.

Imagine you were in my remote class. What could I do to help you push through fear, frustration, and fatigue to complete this chair?

I'd love to hear your ideas!
