Can you believe it?! Day #1 of 30 Days to Changing Your Game is FINALLY here!! YAY!!

Que theme music: Hey! Ho! Let’s Go! http://tinysong.com/8MY3

Today we are going to do some preparation to make the most of this experience. Remember, I’ve read all the posts that are coming your way so I know what is in store for us. 🙂

For the next 30 days we will be creating new habits and new ways of thinking. At first, it may feel unfamiliar and awkward – and that’s ok. Change can feel like that. Other times it may feel frightening and disorienting – and that’s okay. Change can feel like that. And still other times it may feel  liberating and freeing – and that’s ok. Change can feel like that, too.

“Fortune favors the prepared mind.” ~Louis Pasteur



These seven keys below will anchor us in the coming days (and even when this series is over) and will truly make all the difference. So, here we go.

1) Commit. Show up here every day for the next 30 days. If you are serious about changing your game, you’ve got to step up. I know you are busy. So am I. But I’ve learned that my game isn’t going to get changed all by itself. I’ve got to be willing to do whatever it takes. So today, decide.

2) Get a notebook or a legal pad that is dedicated to this 30 day series. You may even want to get a three -ring binder and some loose-leaf paper so you can print out and save each blog post. Every day you will be asked to take a small action toward changing your game. You’ll need some space to write down your thoughts and your responses. This may be the very excuse you need to finally buy a Moleskin. 🙂

3) Ask questions. Each blog post author is available on the day of their post to respond to comments and answer questions. Take advantage of having access to this extraordinary group of men and women. And remember, the only stupid question is the one that remains unasked.

4) Connect with each other. Many of you recruited a partner for 30 Days -which is AWESOME!! And if you haven’t, it’s not too late to do that, but you will be fine if you haven’t. The culture here at Escaping Mediocrity is one of a tribe. We learn from and lean on each other.

To that end, connect with those you may not know. Respond to an interesting comment. Ask the commentor a question.  Together we are powerful. (And here is one of my few ground rules: this is a supportive environment. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. If you get personal or overly snarky, I will call you out and ban you. End of story.)

5) Remember that some posts will resonate more strongly with you than others. Many times I’ve found that the thing that I was certain had no value to me was the very thing that turned me around. So play through each day. You never know where it may lead you.

6) Stay the course. Somewhere about mid-way through this thing, people will start dropping off. It’s just what happens. Decide now that you won’t be one of those people. Game-changers stay in the game.

7) Go easy on yourself. Yes I know I said decide, commit, step up. And I still mean that. I also know that change can be exhausting and doesn’t come as easily as we would like sometimes. You can’t force it; you can only allow it. And take really good care of your self in the process. 🙂

So now go get yourself all warmed up because tomorrow Sherman Hu is going to rock. your. world.

GAME ON!
