100 Day Challenge – Day 001

Wow, lot’s to do on the first day. Firstly there was all of the pre-launch tasks and setting up to do. Looks like I should have done this yesterday (oops!) so it added quite a bit more to todays tasks.

Pre-Course Tasks – Orientation Guide

I watched the 2 orientation videos, which layout the aims of the projects and introduce proper goal setting. Nothing particularly new here, but the next steps ensured you started to take action.

Firstly I had to download my Accountability Coach. Here he is, living in my computer:

This guy will keep me accountable each day too ensure I stick to the plan and my goals.

There was also an app to download to my smart phone, which allows you to access the training from your phone.

Then there was an accountability countdown clock to download, which keeps you focussed on your next target. This sits on your computer and looks like this at the top of my Apple Mac screen:

Next came the Massive Action Plan PDF document. In here you note your first 5 goals, with targets and target dates and your ‘why’ for achieving them. I found this quite satisfying as it gave you a structured breakdown of how to achieve the goal in the target time.

I set my goals within the bounds of the 100 Day Challenge (mine ends on 14th Feb 2015), although there was no compelling reason to do this other than I could relay my progress within the 100 days I am reporting on the challenge.

So here are my goals and the target dates:

1) Set up and monetise an online sales funnel by 14th November:

I wanted to start the challenge with a bang and set a very short target (7 days). This way I could monitor if the 100 Day Challenge was seeing early benefits for myself.

This little sales funnel project seemed ideal as I have been working on this for a couple of weeks and it will start to bring in money if I do it right. It will be a challenge to do it this quickly as I have never completed one before. It is also a way of gauging how the countdown clock works and if it keeps you focussed on the task in hand.

2) Drink a least 2 litres of water a day for 100 days:

This is something we are all supposed to do, but I fail regularly. By bringing it under the rigidity of the 100 Day Challenge hopefully it will become a habit and something I then do automatically. The health benefits of achieving this are tremendous.

3) Complete the 100 Day Challenge correctly:

This again made the challenge itself part of my daily regime. Hopefully this will set more good habits in areas such as goal setting, time management and performance.

4) Partnership To Success:

I pay a monthly fee to my mentor John Thornhill for this mentorship course, which teaches me how to create and launch digital products online. It is a 52 week course costing close on $2500 in total. It is a brilliant course and one I would recommend to anyone who wants to succeed online. John has a 100% success rate for this course and some notable people have graduated from it and gone on to earn 6 and 7 figures per year. If you are interested, you can get a trial for $1 if you click on the picture below:

The course is worth every penny, but personal circumstances meant that I am currently only at the end of phase 1 (week 8), when I should be at the end of phase 2 (week 22).

My target is to get back up to date by the end of the 100 day Challenge. In simple mathematical terms, this means doing 2 course weeks for every actual week in time over the next 100 days. This should be easily achievable as the course is meant for people who have full-time jobs and I am full-time at home, working as an Internet Marketer. The reason I haven’t caught up recently is because of poor discipline. My discipline can seriously waiver at times and I wanted to see if the 100 Day Challenge could help set me right with this character flaw.

5) Lose 20lbs in weight in 100 days

Not a particularly difficult task, but I have lost a similar amount over a few months in the last year, but I could really do with being a stone and a half lighter and again this gave me a goal with concrete benefits and a measurable success marker.

So with all the orientation tasks completed i could move on to:

 

Day 1: Grow Up – Get Serious

I had an email this morning. It looked like this:

Pretty neat, don’t you think. The ‘View Today’s Lesson’ button is clickable. I am not going to insult your intelligence by telling you what it does.

Todays training was about taking serious action if you want to improve your lot in life. The challenge for the day was to review the goals and seriously commit to them.

Now I am committed, or I wouldn’t be doing this blog for all the world (I wish) to see.

My Early Thoughts

The program appears to be well structured and I have a good feeling about it even at this early stage.

I am looking forward to tomorrows challenge and to keep looking at that accusing Accountability Clock and it’s looming first mini-goal!!!

More tomorrow . . .
