GET SHIT DONE: Winter 2024, Week 06 (Feb 5-11)

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.

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: Meaning of Life + Spiritual Act (5 points)

There are 2 parts to the Accelerator this week. First, contemplate the meaning of life and post your thoughts/refections in your fire team (2 points). Second, perform an act of spirituality that is beyond what you normally would do. This will vary based on your faith or spiritual/religious beliefs (or lack thereof), so you can interpret this assignment in a way that fits your situation. It could mean, among other things, some action taken in service, education, teaching, prayer, meditation, or anything related to the idea that you are a part of something bigger than yourself (3 points).

Proof pic: Post a pic, screenshot, video, or description of your reflections on the meaning of life (2 points) and the spiritual act you performed (3 points) to your fire team channel, for up to a total of 5 points.

Do your Ground activity for the week (5 points)

Complete your Ground activity for the week.

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: Do a 3+ mile ruck.

* Special Op #2: Swim a lake.

* 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.
