    Have any of you got started?

    I'll tell you, you can put it off another week, but those that started the week I started this thread are already making massive efforts to achieve their big goals. It doesn't involve trying to finish everything in a week, it involves working towards it bit by bit and massive change starts to set in. It gets easier as the weeks go by and results start flowing in.

    If you haven't started getting accountable with someone, start today! If you don't have a partner and are not ready to pay for one, at least use the docs to plan your week. This is CRITICAL. It will make a massive difference in your progress and also reducing anxiety and stress as you charge towards whatever success looks like to you.

    As always, If you need help or clarity, respond to this thread. I will do what I can to get you rolling...


    Program update:
    Only 2 spots left at the 25% off price now and I'll be maxed out. LINK

    I started working with Chris last week, so I'm still trying to figure out the best time for me to do my weekly planning, follow-ups, and how to best keep my action item list on the forefront of my day to day. I'm primarily doing this to help build the positive habits I need to continue to grow and succeed.

    With that in mind, one of the items on my list last week was to clean up my content pages and add buy links to my products. I had been meaning to add the option for customers to buy my products in two-packs, but had dragged my feet on implementing it for months. Since it was on my list of stuff I had to do, I went ahead and did it because I didn't want to tell Chris that I was just too lazy to get it done. Since implementing it, multi-pack sales comprise nearly 30% of all my orders. That alone will pay for an entire year of his service.

    Dang, was just going to drop you a line. Procrastination strikes again.

    Anyone else looking for a partner?

    Thanks Vig. I have strict confidentiality agreements with every client so I can't get into details, but I can tell you a bit on the macro level.

    What I have seen is a massive re-alignment in each client. Each one is in a different place in their business and life, and some are working with similar issues day to day. So far we have found out what motivates each one, what their vision is for being at a peak state (their 10/10 state) and figured out a simple road map of what it takes to get from where they are, to where they want to be.

    Once they figured that out, we focus on planning the weeks and setting their one thing for the week. That one thing will ensure that no matter what happens, we are always moving forward. That relieves a bit of the stress, anxiety, and confusion week over week if they get stuck in the weeds on tasks.

    Every client has been building and training their mind and bodies to produce better results during the day, and more valuable "no work" time at night. We've focused on getting home life and personal life straight so they can ENJOY this adventure rather than suffer through it, hoping for the carrot at the end. This alone has created lasting change for some of them.

    Some clients have been focusing on delegating and removing LVT's or Low Value Tasks from their weekly lists. This ensures they are working on their business more than in it, freeing up their time by weighing their personal value against their resources. If they have no resources yet, they are getting some and also working on becoming more flexible and resourceful.

    Overall, Every client has made big leaps in what is possible, all while enjoying each day more and more. As this builds, we are going to see some massive success stories come out of these folks. I am excited every week to continue riding along on their journeys.


    With that being said, this isn't a pitch. (lol) Anyone can achieve the same results when they make the decision to hold themselves accountable or get a partner to do it for them. There is no such thing as balance, but everyone has a lot more potential to build and design a fulfilling life. All it takes is setting a new standard and stepping up (thanks @Kung Fu Steve for those one liners :p)

    I know we talked on PM, but just pointing this out again. I am sure someone will read and reach out. This is too low volume for me to build a list of open partners but if it picks up I can always do that.

    Thanks for asking. It’s going well! It’s forced me to stay engaged with the process long enough to recognize more flaws in mindset and method so I can course correct. Each week my goals have changed somewhat as I adjusted my approach based on how the previous week went. Having an accountability partner has defineatly accelerated my personal growth and I’m sure will accelerate the process of building a business once I select my next venture.

    This is excellent news. If either of you want to pass by a copy of your weekly goals, i will certainly take a look and offer suggestions for a single week. Just want to make sure you all are on the right track and focusing on the right thing.

    Also, don't stop. Consistency is everything even when things get hard.

    For those that are on the New Year.... New Me train.

    Get started with this, Don't let another year pass you buy where you missed your goals and allow yourself to feel like that is anyone fault or anythings fault other than your own ability to wake up in the morning and thrive all day.

    All the documents are here in this thread and free for you, all it takes is a bit of effort to find a partner and get started on calls in Jan and never stop them (unless they don't work for you, then change it up).

    I have 1 spot open now if you want to take a shortcut and get the best from the start. I think I will have another spot open in a week or two as well.

    Even if you can not afford or don't have the mind space for that right now. Start on your own weekly sheets above and hold yourself accountable above all.

    No one will ever be able to do it for you, (I wish i could!)
    ......so get up, move around, get some water.... and get started today!

    I appreciate the offer. Unfortunately the partner I had kept flaking out on our calls, so I'm looking for a new partner. It was a bummer, I've gained quite a bit of momentum because of this, but apparently the other party did not feel it was worth their time.

    So even if it doesn't end up working working out with an accountability partner, if you are 100% committed to being accountable, you will move forward at a much faster rate than before and you can always get another partner...

    Did a few months with @LightHouse and can honestly say I'm in a different place because of it.

    I thought I was going to get more productive on my business stuff... but what happened was a lot more than that

    Chris laid out the importance of setting weekly (and quarterly) targets for all areas of my life. Business, health, family/friends.

    Health and family were always important to me, and I had aspirations for that, but never actually sat down and made goals for them before. And it was tough!

    Trying to think of something out of the ordinary to do for my wife once a week is harder than it sounds. But I stuck to it, and our relationship went from a 3 to an 8 in a few months, and we just recently got back from a 3 night trip to Santa Fe... sans kids! It was amazing watching the way she acted towards me over the course of the weeks. It doesn't take much guys!

    Health and fitness immediately jumped up to the next level and I was making a lot of progress, until a deadlift injury derailed me. Whoops.

    Business made some improvement. I often didn't reach my targets, because I was so un-used to setting goals that I usually bit off more than I could chew. Chris drilled the importance of figuring out what that "one thing" to get done needed to be, and make sure you at least get that done. Which I did almost every week. He gave me strategies for managing time throughout the day. And while I wasn't always successful at executing, I had some days where I felt like a superhuman, knocking out huge tasks in a day that normally might have taken me a week.

    Beyond just the tactical stuff (which was helpful) Chris has a lot of wisdom, and just getting his thoughts on some of the stuff I was dealing with was invaluable. Also, knowing that he was going to be checking in on the weekly call, put pressure on me to actually have goals set. I didn't want to be unprepared.

    The only reason I had to back out, was that I'm in a pretty tough financial spot, and had to cut out any expense in my life that wasn't directly related to fulfilling orders or keeping the lights on.


    If you're on the fence... I'd suggest you give it a go. It will be money well spent.

    I have no idea if your roster of clients is full right now or not (as I forgot to ask you) but I thought I would drop in with the following.

    I had a quick discussion with Lighthouse/Chris today, and here's what happened.

    As he has done in the past, he gave me a simple idea for my business that I had not thought of. I will immediately set to work on his idea, because it was golden. Sometimes all it takes is a fresh set of eyes, and usually that perspective is uniquely from @LightHouse, to cast a new winning suggestion for businesses in the stage of business mine is. It is these same gold nuggets that I used from him during my last business to automate it, structure it, and ultimately sell it. His wisdom seems simple to him, and he often brings to the surface things that "I should have thought about." But I don't, and he does, and that's why he is a winning coach.

    If you have a chance to get mentored by him, take it. His out of the box thinking again and again makes a significant difference.

    It's Monday aka my favorite day of the week. I get to hear how people are smashing their old beliefs on what is possible and breaking through.

    I get to hear these folks set goals and milestones with their businesses and move forward at lightning pace, never leaving a week to the trash.

    If you aren't planning your weeks out, and you do not know where you are doing STOP, and do it right now. Plan the week out with what you need to do to move yourself forward with your life and your business. I promise you this week will be different from last week.

    Whens the best time? Right now

    whats the best tool/method? The one you use everyday

    what does it cost me if i don't do it? ....mediocrity

    Hey guys,

    I've been working with Chris (Lighthouse) for right around 2 weeks now (although the first week I was on vacation so truthfully, about one full week).

    I traditionally haven't trusted in the "productivity/accountability" industry or whatever you want to call it, but I felt compelled to come in here after a truly life-changing week.

    Chris helped me see some pretty obvious opportunities that were right in front of me, and held me accountable for making concrete plans to go after them. I'm a Facebook Ads Manager and Marketing Manger at a company called Agora and have wanted to branch out and build my own agency for a while now.

    I've signed 2 clients already (seriously, in one week) and have already received an upfront retainer from one. I'm really riding the momentum now and can't believe how fast things can change.

    Just wanted to pop in here and give credit where credit is due.

    Thanks!

    There’s something hard to define about what happens with an accountability coach. Perhaps an example will help – last week was One of Those Weeks, where I got hit on all fronts with unexpected work stress, home stress, family stress, and health stress. I was already relatively good at staying calm and tackling things head on. But the huge difference now is that I had a much clearer picture of my goals, could acknowledge how my current actions were already in support of those goals, and was able to let go of all the less important actions that I had planned to take but no longer could due to these unexpected events. It’s the difference between beating myself up for not making massive progress on multiple fronts and acknowledging the progress I am making on critical goals, along with nurturing multiple aspects of my life. There’s something about being forced to review things every week with someone else that gave me a different level of clarity. Lighthouse, of course, cares deeply about the success of his clients and knows how to challenge people directly but with compassion. I was fortunate enough to get to know him at the last Summit!

    I want to also thank whoever it was that recommended Clickup in Lighthouse’s Laser Focus thread. I’ve tried dozens of tools over the years (including paper) and I’m loving this one!
