Overview

Assignment 1: Establish your baseline (4 points)

For each of your 6 Dark Goals, describe where you are today in relation to that goal. Be sure to keep this handy somewhere because you’ll want to reference it again in Week 12.

Proof pic: Upload your description of your baseline to your fire team channel. It could be from a hand-written document, typed, video, or photo(s) showing your current situation, or a combination of any of those formats.

Assignment 2: Document your “why” for each Dark Goal (4 points)

Answer the following question for each of your Dark Goals: Why do I want to achieve this? The answer could be as simple or as detailed as needed for it to be inspiring to you. Be sure to keep this somewhere you could refer to it regularly.

Proof pic: Post about your “why” for each Dark Goal in your fire team channel. It could be from a hand-written document, typed, video, or photo(s), or a combination of any of those formats.

Assignment 3: Plan your week ahead (4 points)

Brainstorm a list of everything you want to accomplish this week. It can be items for the current week or next week (if you’re already deep into your current week). Just let the ideas flow out without filtering them. This will serve as a reference as you build your Daily Action Plans each day for the coming week.

Proof pic: Upload a photo or screenshot of your brainstormed list (written or typed) to your fire team channel.

Assignment 4: DAILY ACTION PLAN–At the start of each day for 5 days, write out the tasks you would like to accomplish that day. (4 points per day for a max total of 20 points)

For 5 days this week, start your day by writing out your Daily Action Plan, which for this week is simply a list of tasks you want to accomplish that day.  This is a small daily action that is going to grow and evolve over the next several weeks of this challenge. 

Veterans: Create your full-fledged Legend Page and Daily Action Plan for 5 days.

Proof pic: Upload a picture of your Daily Action Plan each day to your fire team channel. (An example of what that might look like is below.)

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? 

Veterans: Your review must focus on the following 2 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 Weekly Review to your fire team channel. Some suggestions for acceptable formats include: a photo of your hand-written page, a screenshot of your typed assessment, or a video.
