GET SHIT DONE: Summer 2024, Week 02 (July 8-14)

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 at the start of 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, BUT THIS WEEK, TRY DOING IT THE NIGHT BEFORE instead of the morning. This is an optional, not required change to your routine, but it is highly recommended that you give it a try just for this week to see how you like it. 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. 

Get Shit Done Accelerator: Visualize Your Breakthrough(up to 5 points)

Assignment: Picture what your life is going to be like AFTER you achieve the Breakthrough you committed to pursuing last week. Think about all the details–what will change, who will you become, how will you feel, how will affect other aspects of your life, etc. Then write down that description (2 points). Then, throughout the week, spend some time visualizing yourself in that state of being. Each time you do this, sit in a quiet place, close your eyes, and spend at least 5 minutes visualizing yourself after having achieved your Breakthrough. Visualize the effects of that Breakthrough, and fill yourself with gratitude for having achieved it. You will receive 1 point for each time you do a 5-minute visualization exercise, for a total of up to 3 points.

Proof pic: In your fire team channel, post your description of what your post-Breakthrough life is like (2 points), and then post a proof pic or check-in each time you do your visualization exercise (1 point per session), for a max total of up to 5 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: Use your strength to help someone.

* Special Op #2: Get out on the water (canoe, kayak, SUP).

* Special Op #3: Eat an organ you’ve never tried.

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)

Join us Friday at 3 PM Central Time for our weekly Moot. Zoom link and password will be posted in Slack each Friday.

Proof pic: Upload a photo or screenshot of the Moot. (5 points for live or replay)

Recommended Get Shit Done Lesson: Your Baseline and Your Why

The below Lesson video and the Assignments that follow are strongly recommended for this week. (optional, not scored)


Recommended Get Shit Done Assignments

Assignment 1: Establish your baseline

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

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. For any previously-established Dark Goals, simply review the “why” you identified previously to ensure it still applies or make any adjustments if needed. 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

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.
