Seth Godin’s Pick Four Workbook
In case you hadn't heard, we're shooting for this year to be our Best Year Ever at FortySeven Media. While we were doing our planning for 47m, Kicktastic and Bright Newt with Austin, he pulled out a curious looking, sprial bound notebook with a bullseye on the front. “What is this madness?” I asked and he replied, “Why, it's Seth Godin's planning workbook, of course!”
Being a Seth Godin fan I ordered the 4 pack immediately, but only recently got to sit down and look through them with my wife as we planned for this next year. It's a really simple concept, based on a program from Zig Ziglar - you take some time to identify goals that are the most important to you, make sure you are balancing between work, home, fitness, money, etc…, and then pick the 4 most important ones to work on for the next 12 weeks.
The book is setup for daily notes on each goal, and that's why I think it's such a great idea. Often wanting to do something like “start a new business,” or “loose weight,” take time. Lots of time. And it's easy to get discouraged or forget about it or get halfway done. But if you're spending at least a few minutes each day on your goal, then you can't help but make progress, right?
Seth Godin likes to use the phrase “Drip, drip, drip, things get done.” And he's right. Having a single place to keep track of my 4 most important goals is fantastic. Plus, after the 12 weeks - it's on to a new set of awesomeness to conquer!
A pack of 4 is only $24 bucks. When I bought mine it was $15, so keep an eye out for discounts. But seriously, why not grab a pack of these and start planning your next year? I think you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish.
