The Possibility To Change Stubborn Behaviours

Future You
Katie Elliott
Founder of Little Challenges
“I have had a reoccurring tendency to get through 80% of what I was doing and then stop just at the point where I thought it was getting promising, or I'd fall apart and give up. The only thing I’ve done consistently in my life has been to crumble, and I don't want to inspire anyone to do that.”

This is a talk on how to make the business of being human just a little bit easier.

Katie is one of the very few author-illustrators to have sold over 100,000 copies of a book featuring cartoon slugs (Fun Factory series, Boosey & Hawkes). She has also worked as a freelance puzzle designer for the RSPCA, performed in theatres all over the UK in an unflattering pastel catsuit, co-founded a social enterprise and home educated two sons.

But until very recently, no matter what Katie Elliot did, it was a struggle. In 2016 her life changed in a dramatic way. And she now runs Little Challenges, a project inspired by all she had to learn to stop struggling and start enjoying life.
