Shaun King – The Power of 100!
Shaun King – The Power of 100!
I just finished reading Shaun Kings book – The power of 100! I found it a very interesting read. This was a little different from my normal reads. When I saw it in the store I thought it would be a good idea to get, I believe in setting goals for yourself and haven’t updated mine in 2 years.
The book starts off by explaining why you should live your life with purpose, we all make excuses and tend to sidetrack ourselves. If money was no issue what would you do? If you have more time what would you do? We all have 24 hours a day its what you do during that time that drives you forward/sideways or even backwards.
The whole concept of the book is the creation of 100 goals. He explains how everyone should have 7 different categories of goals. Each category should have at least 7 different goals, some will be easier to create than others. But make sure you fill them all out as they tend to all interconnect. Here is the list of categories.
- Health & Fitness
- Career & Finance
- Spiritual & Emotional
- Friends & Family
- Accomplishment & Experience
He brings up creating a YORG for each category as well. YORG stands for Your Outrageously Ridiculous Goals. This is a goal that when you tell someone they will think you are absolutely insane. Like If my finance YORG was to donate 5 million to a charity over the course of my life. While it may sound crazy now, with the help of the other goals you can slowly make your way up to this goal. Keep in mind this is a very Long Term Goal.
The Life Goal Fireball
If you are familiar with the Dave Ramsey – Debt Snowball, Shaun has created this goal list on the same concept. Setup your goals with some easy to do/ low costs and work your way up towards the harder goals. Each category should have 2 goals you can complete within 2 months. (The 2 should be close to free) 3 goals that you can complete withing one year. (They should increase in commitment and cost) 5 goals that take 1-5 years to complete. (Also should increase in commitment and cost) and finally your YORG. Most of the goals in each category should be related to your YORG
Seal The Deal
The final part of the book is different ideas to help you follow through with your goals as well as ways that can seriously derail you. He recommends telling everyone your list of goals either in person or through the internet and social media. Who knows maybe someone you mention your list to is a expert in a field you didn’t know. Or better yet they know someone who can directly help you get to where you want to be. I know personally I had gotten better financially after creating this website and joining the community.
I found the book very good and am looking forward to trying the life goal fireball. It will take me awhile to create my list of 100 goals and will definitely be posting them to this site to keep track and be accountable to everyone on here. I think the finance, generosity and experience goals will be really easy as well as fun to create. I’ll keep you posted.
