Holy cow? This was one hell of a good read. I truly believe every person should read this book. The only other book that had me feel similar was Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins.
Other than Bo Eason’s crazy story what I enjoyed most what that here is a book that gives the reader actionable steps. The common thing many books that bring p goal setting is that there are no actionable steps included. In short, Bo tells u to set your self a long term 15-20 year goal. Then work backwards from there. What I like about a 15-20year goal is that it gives you enough room to adjust your action plan. The plan may change but the goal remains the same.
In the book Bo shares the story of him as a child and having the opportunity to practice his football drills with an NFL Quarterback. On his way there his dad told him that when he gets there to treat the QB like his peer and to act like his equal and not a fan. Fans ask to take photos and freak out, while players act normal. This is were the impactful question of “Are you a fan or player?” this one question hits hard like a ton of bricks.
“Fans watch the game, while Players play the game. Which one are you?”
The second I heard that the book jumped to the top and entered my favourite books of all time.
Things I’ve Learned
Lifebook by MindValley
For the past 3 weeks, I have been working on my Lifebook. Lifebook is a program by MindValley that divides your life into 12 categories. You then think about how you want to live out the 12 categories. Here is a video explaining.
What I enjoy most about the journey so far is that I am able to think about exactly what I want from my life in grave detail. Breaking things down by section forces me to stay focused in one lane and not allow my mind to wander. This allows for more clarity in what I want.
Within each category, you start by filling out sentences that describe your Premise, Vision, Purpose, and Strategy. Then at the end of the week, you fill up your category with photos that align with what you want. I have to say the search for photos has been much more fun than I expected.
