2. GSD Assignments

Assignment 1: Reassess your Shit to Purge candidates (4 points)

Review your list of shit to purge you created previously. If there are any items you’ve tried to purge but have been unsuccessful thus far add them to a new list. If any additional Shit to Purge candidates have crept into your life, add them to that new list. If you’re having trouble coming up with additional ideas for Shit to Purge, you may want to check out the optional GSD Lab assignment further down this page for ideas.

Proof pic: Upload a picture or screenshot of Shit to Purge candidates to your fire team channel.

Assignment 2: Finalize your list of Shit to Purge (4 points)

Re-score you list of Shit to Purge, including your starred items and any new items you’ve added. For each candidate you wrote down from your Shit to Purge exercise, ask yourself “Does this STOKE or STAMP OUT my fire?”  Score each candidate on a negative scale of 0 to -5.  Identify 3-5 items with the lowest scores–this is your finalized new list of Shit to Purge.

Assignment 3: Take Bridge-Burning Actions (4 points)

For each item on your new list of Shit to Purge, take a “bridge burning action” to purge that shit from your life. If you truly don’t have any more Shit to Purge (which is unlikely), post a summary to your fire team explaining how you purged your shit and improved the scores on your chosen items.

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, 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?
