Project refocus and reset in 2021 – Career, Hypnotherapy, General Aviation, GTD

Updated: 20211128

This is the GoTo post for current updates of career and various projects in 2021:

CoronaVirus (COVID-19)
COVID is still with us and now as Omicon/Delta Variant. Got the Moderna booster in November.

Career/Income Status
Got the ASW Certificate and starting to bank hours. Still working as Contract Social Worker for People’s Self-Help Housing. Waiting results on background check with a tentative-offer – more details to come. Working through PTSD certificate program and studying for Law and Ethics exam.

Vocational/Avocational Self Improvement (Hypnotherapy)
Web-Site – https://paulgarth.name
As a Certified Hypnotherapist (with additional training in Therapeutic Imagery, and HeartMath HRV equipment) I offer vocational/avocational self-improvement for clients via internet (Skype/Zoom). Examples are: taking exams; fear of flying/dentist/public speaking; general overwhelm; chronic discomfort. Medical referrals requested for any medical etiology – I am not state-licensed to diagnose, treat or cure. Note: I identify more as a coach vs. therapist. Refer to my FAQ section for more details.

While I still have a hypnotherapy interest in supporting people experiencing stress/anxiety/burnout, an interesting development has my attention. Within the aviation industry, there is heightened awareness of the following intersection – Gender (female); Pilots (Learning to fly as a profession); People of Color. Addressing DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion), United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby has a vision by 2030 of a United Airlines pilot workforce which includes 50% women/people of color. I have the training and academic degrees to tackle this challenge, with my proven approach of integrating People, Systems, Technology and Life. I’m not exactly sure how I can establish this intersection, so I’ll just introduce myself to everyone.

General Aviation
Web-site – http://aviation.paulgarth.name
Objective is to earn enough money between primary income (Social Work related) and secondary income (hypnotherapy services) to afford flight training and equipment towards: BFR, EMT, IFR. The common joke in answering how a plane flies is, “With money”.

Initial goal is to get back into the ground school review, needed for BFR. I have all the content for that, and have an iMac that I could use with X-Plane to simulate.

Productivity Integration – SecondBrain with GTD
I’m using a legacy WordPress site to demonstrate my current implementation of GTD (Getting Things Done) and how Tiago Forte’s SecondBrain can be integrated. This site also includes various apps I’m using, including updates/changes that may affect my future implementation. In reality, this site has morphed more into my blogging about various findings/realizations that I think are an aide towards productivity. As of 20210904 I haven’t dug deep into anything specific (eg Tiago’s work). I’m currently interested in the intersection that Dan Levitin has made between neuroscience and David Allen’s work.
