This is a wonderful opportunity to give back to our community!

OKWIL Event: The Gift of "Done!"
On May 30th, we had a great time at our OKWIL Event: Finish: Giving Yourself the Gift of Done! Thirty of our members enjoyed learning from Bonnie Ann Cain-Wood on how to complete tasks at work efficiently, without adding additional pressure to their lives. Chronic projects starters learned about the importance of removing pressure from their projects, so they can ultimately finish and improve their overall productivity. We enjoyed seeing all of you, and look forward to our next OKWIL event!
