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?

GSD Lab (optional)

There is no GSD Lab assignment for this week. Instead, give some extra focus to your execution of the items on your Daily Action Plan every day this week, because starting next week (Week 9) you are going to start being scored on your execution!


Make one Bold Move this week to move the needle in any one of the 6 pillars of your life (Health, Wealth, Relationship, Family, Work, Personal). It is strongly recommended, but not required, that you make a Bold Move that is directly related to one of your Dark Goals.

Proof pic: Upload a photo or video of your Bold Move to your fire team channel, and add your bold move for this week to your Dark Goal Tracker worksheet under the related pillar. (5 points).

If you need more information about the concept of Bold Moves, refer to the 50 BOLD User Manual.
