Overview

2. GSD Assignments

Assignment 1: Establish your baseline (4 points)

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 (4 points)

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 (4 points)

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.

Assignment 4: Write your Legend Page and Daily Action Plan at the start of each day for 5 days (4 points per day for a max total of 20 points)

For 5 days this week, start your day by writing out your Legend Page and Daily Action Plan. They should include your Dark Goals, Daily Affirmation, Gratitude, Next Bold Moves (NBM’s), Core, and FTA.

Assignment 5: Review your week (4 points)

At the end of the week, spend some time going back to think about your week, and 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?
