GET SHIT DONE: Summer 2023, Week 10 (Sept 4-10)

Please watch this Overview video:

Here are your assignments for the week, by category:

Declare a Next Bold Move for the week (5 points)

Decide on at least one Next Bold Move (NBM) that you will work to accomplish this week, and declare it to your fire team. It is recommended you make this declaration as early in the week as possible (Monday is best). NBM’s do not necessarily need to be directly related to your Dark Goals, but it is strongly recommended that they are, since that is how you will make the most progress. Your NBM’s should also be written on your Legend Pages and carried forward each day of the week until they are either completed or abandoned (if circumstances change). You could also use your Dark Goal Tracker spreadsheet to help you with your NBM planning.

Proof pic: Post about at least one NBM you will pursue this week in your fire team channel. 

Write your Legend Page and Daily Action Plan each day for 5 days (1 point per day for a max total of 5 points)

For 5 days this week, write out your Legend Page and Daily Action Plan. You can do it either in the morning or the night before. As always, your Legend Page and Daily Action Plan should include your Dark Goals, Daily Affirmation, Gratitude, Next Bold Moves (NBM’s), Core, and FTA. 

Proof pic: Upload a picture of your Legend Page / Daily Action Plan each morning to your fire team channel. 

GSD Accelerator: Become an idea machine (5 points)

Watch the overview video, and each day think about a particular topic, issue, or challenge, and write down a brainstorm of 10 ideas related to that topic. Your topic each day could be related to your Dark Goals or something you are working on within 50 Bold, or they could be related to something outside of 50 Bold, or something related to someone else, or something having nothing to do with you at all. They don’t have to be good ideas…they just have to be ideas. They can be serious, but they can also be silly, ridiculous, unrealistic, etc. Be creative. The ideas you write on a given day will all be related to a single topic, and you must address a different topic each day. You will get 1 point for each day you write down 10 ideas on a particular topic, for up to 5 points. There are no partial points.

Proof pic: Upload a picture or screenshot of your 10 ideas each day to your fire team channel.

Do your Ground activity for the week (5 points)

Complete your Ground activity for the week. 

Proof pic: Upload a pic showing your Ground activity to your fire team channel.

Bold Move (15 Points)

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). The Bold Move(s) you make does not necessarily have to be the one you declared as your NBM earlier in the week, although that is usually ideal. It is strongly recommended (though 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. (15 points)

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

Special Ops (5 points)

Your Special Ops assignment for this week is to complete ONE of the three Special Ops listed below, and to substantiate by uploading a proof pic or video to your fire team channel. (5 points)

* Special Op #1: Take an ice bath.

* Special Op #2: Race your child to the mailbox and back.

* Special Op #3: Post a win, a struggle, or something we don’t know about you in Slack.

Review your week (5 points)

At the end of the week, answer 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.

GSD Lab Assignment: Visualize your productive day

In the morning, set a timer for 10 minutes and sit in a quiet, comfortable place. Close your eyes and focus on your breath, taking deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth. Visualize yourself in a place that you find to be the most relaxing and happy and carefree. Then visualize yourself approaching your tasks for that day with ease. Then slowly bring your attention back to your breath, and then after another minute, bring yourself back to the room where you are sitting, and open your eyes.

Proof pic: Post about your visualization experience to your fire team channel.
