GET SHIT DONE: GET SHIT DONE: Winter 2024, Week 07 (Feb 12-18)

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: Acting in Alignment with the Meaning of Life (5 points)

Last week you contemplated the meaning of life. Now this week, you will put that definition into action. Your assignment this week is to take up to 2 actions that are in alignment with how you define the meaning of life. These actions must be different than what you use as your Bold Move. You will get 2 points for the first action, and 3 points for the second action, for a total of up to 5 points.

Proof pic: Post a pic, screenshot, video, or description of the action(s) you took in alignment with your definition of the meaning of life 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: Destroy some processed food (bat, gun, fire, etc). 

* Special Op #2: Chop down a tree.

* Special Op #3: Flex shirtless from the top of a nearby hill or mountain.

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.

MOOT (5 points)

Recommended GSD Assignments

Assignment 1: Review your daily routine

Review what your typical day is like. It helps to write it out in terms of your 4 containers, plus anything else that happens during your typical day, from the moment you wake up until the moment you go to bed. Ask yourself, how well does this daily routine support the pursuit of your Dark Goals? Based on your answer to that question, make any modifications to your daily routine if necessary.

Proof pic: Upload a picture or screenshot of your revised (or current, if no revisions) daily routine to your fire team channel.

Assignment 2: Review your ground activities

Review your list of activities that restore you, and add any new ones that come to mind, and/or remove any that no longer stoke your fire. Are there any activities on your list that you’ve been neglecting that you need to do more often?

Proof pic: Upload a picture or screenshot of your revised (or current, if no revisions) list of Ground activities to your fire team channel.

Assignment 3: Schedule your ground activities

Pull out your calendar, review your previously scheduled ground activities, make any adjustments if needed, and ensure you are booked out for the full upcoming year.
