Massive Action in the Next 100 Days

If you ever feel paralyzed by having too many goals, you’re not alone.

I have so many ideas I want to execute on, habits I want to implement, articles I want to write and people I want to meet. The challenge is, we can’t do it all at once.

Rather than being paralyzed by choice, this is how I developed my 2017 goals for the next 100 days.

First I created a very long list (this is the easy part). Then I picked just two goals in each category, two areas that will really move the needle. Each of these two things REALLY excites me, they aren’t “have to’s”. (More on that here: Stop Setting Goals You Don’t Actually Care About).

Many of my male mentors publish their monthly and yearly goals. I find value and inspiration in seeing them, so here are mine. [Note: some, like Stefan James, list the exact dollar amount they earn and want to earn. I’m more private about financial numbers (and details about my marriage) so I’ll leave those out, but know that I do have goals in those areas as well].

My list of goals for the first 100 days of 2017:

Work (I head up Marketing at Apptentive):
Hire a rockstar Performance Marketer
Raise the bar on my modeling/forecasting skills (know of a course or coach??)

Mind/Body Health:
Complete a health reset: 5-day cleanse + 30-day gluten/sugar/dairy free experiment
Complete Kayla’s 12-week workout program and start over (I’m on week 6)

Relationships:
Go on four experiences (things we’ve never done before) with my querido
Plan a girls weekend

Community:
Launch and raise $20K in sponsorships for Alley to the Valley Pipeliners Program in Seattle (deal making for up-and-coming women)

Fun/Crazy:
Relax and explore Spain & Barcelona
Meet Tim Ferriss

We can accomplish a lot in 100 days, but we better get working towards them. It’s not about intentions. It’s about taking massive action.

What are your goals for the next 100 days?
