We love encouraging you to find a PowerSheets buddy (or a few) to keep you accountable in making little by little progress on your goals each month. These people can quickly become your biggest cheerleaders and encouragers for your goals each month! But after you've found your PowerSheets people, you might need some help throwing the best PowerSheets party out there!
You're in luck! We've updated and enhanced our PowerSheets Groups Guide to help you get ready to create the very best PowerSheets Party out there, and we're sharing a few of our getting started tips below!
Start cultivating your 2018 goals now! Remember, it's never too early to start cultivating those 2018 goals! You don't have to wait until January 1st, so plan to meet before starting the Prep Work or in the middle of PowerSheets Prep Week. Not only will it give your group a chance to get to know each other, but you'll be able to dig into the PowerSheets Prep Work together and bounce ideas off of one another.
Decide what type of group you want. Is it professional, personal, or both? Do you want to be surrounded by people in similar life situations as yourself (for instance, all working moms, all entrepreneurs, or all students), or would you prefer to have a more diverse group? Remember, there are no wrong answers here! You can always expand your group if necessary.
Find your people, and be the invitation. Invite friends–both old and new! We all say it: “We should get together sometime.” [Insert month-long pause.] Don’t wait for the invitations to come to you; be the invitation! Use social media to your advantage! Join the PowerSheets Facebook Group to see if there are PowerSheets users nearby. If not, invite friends to join you! We believe our PowerSheets Goal Planner is a great tool, but don't restrict access to only PowerSheets users. You might have a coworker, neighbor, or family member who is interested in goal-setting, and this is the perfect place to invite them to join you, no strings attached!
Provide name tags and an icebreaker at your first get-together. There are few things worse than meeting someone for the first time, and then forgetting their names! Providing name tags is an easy way to take the pressure off new and old friends to remember so many new faces at once. Incorporating conversation starters or an ice-breaker into mingling time is another great way to get to know new friends! Spend some time going around, introducing yourself, and sharing some of your goals and priorities for the year. Make others feel welcome and comfortable by volunteering to go first!
Have fun! Remember that this is going to be so much fun! Those little victories you have each month? You have a permanent cheerleading squad to celebrate alongside you! Those months where you get distracted or need help focusing? These people are your best friends for encouraging you to focus on the little by little progress. Plan activities, outings, treats, or buddy system to keep things exciting and fun!
