2. GSD Assignments

Assignment 1: Create your new daily routine (4 points)

Take out a sheet of paper and draw a line down the middle, and on one side write down your current daily routine and on the other side write down a new daily routine that takes into account the 4 containers. Then on a fresh piece of paper write down your new routine and put it somewhere you’ll see it every day, maybe even frame it.

Veterans: Simply review your previously-established daily routine and make any modifications if necessary.

Proof pic: Upload a picture of your daily routine to your fire team channel.

Assignment 2: Identify your ground activities (4 points)

Take out a piece of paper and write “The Ground” at the top, and write down a list of activities that restore you.  Write at the speed of thought (‘WATSOT’) until the page is full, then circle the top 5-10 activities.

Veterans: Simply review your list of Ground activities, and add any new ones that come to mind, or remove any that don’t stoke your fire any longer.

Proof pic: Upload a picture of your finalized list of Ground activities to your fire team channel.

Assignment 3: Schedule your ground activities (4 points)

Pull out your calendar, and book the minimum schedule FOR THE YEAR.

Proof pic: Upload a picture of your calendar (or a piece of it) that shows your scheduled ground activities for at least the next month.

Assignment 4: DAILY ACTION PLAN–Write out your dark goals, one positive affirmation, AT LEAST ONE STATEMENT OF GRATITUDE, and your to-do list at the start of each day for 5 days (4 points per day for a max total of 20 points)

For 5 days this week, start your day by writing out your dark goals and one positive affirmation at the top of a sheet of paper, and then write your to-do list of tasks you want to accomplish that day beneath your dark goals. 

Proof pic: upload a picture of your to-do list each day to your fire team channel.

Assignment 5: Review your week (4 points)

At the end of the week, spend some time going back to think about your week.  What went well?  What could have gone better?  How are you feeling about your week?

Also, spend some time listing out the items you will want to accomplish for the upcoming week.

Veterans: For your review, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. How well did I execute my NBM’s? 
  2. How effective were those NBM’s at achieving my goals? 

Proof pic: Post your assessment of how your week went to your fire team channel.
