We asked John what he learned over the 47 weeks. Here are his 7 key take-a-ways.
Breaking a good streak burns but it’s just a number. Small or large, there will always be setbacks. This is a perfect moment to pause and reflect on why I do these reps every day.
Weekly self-reflections can be tough if I don’t spend time each day to reflect on my intentions, effort, and accomplishments. Pilots use the phrase “stay ahead of the airplane”. Even with auto-pilot, you need to be intentional. Applies well to life.
I was already a huge fan of reading. The weekly prompt to set reading goals has made my reading more intentional. It’s not about cranking through a pile to see what I can consume and learn. It’s now more about knowing why I’m reading.
As a competitive person in all aspects of life I tend to push myself hard. Spending a few minutes to set weekly actions for taking care of my emotional & physical needs helps me stay focused to reach my long-term goals.
I work to “give-back” wherever I can. The Monday prompt to elevate others reminds me how personally rewarding and fulfilling it is to help others. It encourages me to get creative in how and who I can support each week.
Hat's off to John. John isn't starting over, he is building on a great run. Just like the hundreds of Sevwins athletes.
As of Jan 20, 2021, Sevwins athletes have committed 230,000 growth reps ranging from weekly goals and reflections to daily mental skill assessments. 50 Sevwins athletes have completed 90% of their growth reps. And they do it in just 7 minutes a week.
