GET SHIT DONE: Fall 2023, Week 09 (Nov 27 to Dec 3)

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: Dark Goal stacking (5 points)

Review each of your 6 Pillars and think about which future Dark Goal(s) you will pursue in each pillar AFTER you reach the Dark Goals you are pursuing right now. For some Pillars, you might have 1 or 2 Dark Goals queued up, for others you might have none. Then take out a sheet of paper and list each Pillar with bullet points for any future Dark Goals you’ve got in mind. This is not about brainstorming potential Dark Goals you MIGHT pursue, this is about establishing a future road map of Dark Goals you INTEND to pursue. It’s not important how many Dark Goals you’ve got stacked for the future (again, you might not have any at all), what’s important is that you go through the exercise and get yourself thinking about the future. This is a one-time, all-or-none assignment….there are no partial points.

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: Eradicate a hazard from your car or house.

* Special Op #2: Ask your child to teach you something they’re passionate about.

* Special Op #3: Barbecue some brisket.

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.
