#PIVOTsprint: Set Yourself Up For Success

Before your sprint starts, get a few key foundational pieces in place:

❏ Choose an area of your life, business, or career that you would like to pivot.

Let your fellow sprinters know what it is (and get creative ideas from others) by sharing your focus area with the hashtags #PIVOTsprint and #nextmove.

❏ Identify what success looks like by the end of your #PIVOTSprint.

Given your chosen focus area, what type of progress would you be thrilled to make? What type of momentum would these four weeks generate moving forward?

❏ Recruit a Pivot pit crew!

Invite one or two friends to join you for the month—you’ll be more likely to stick with it (and you’ll have way more fun!). Each week, you can forward the #PIVOTsprint email to each other with a progress report. This will hold you all accountable, keep you inspired, and give you new ideas when you get stuck. Your friends can sign up here.

❏ Set a recurring meeting for one hour each week for the sprint month.

If you’re creating or joining a PIVOTmastermind, set-up a kick-off call before the month begins, and a wrap-up reflection call after the sprint ends.

❏ Decide how you’ll celebrate once the #PIVOTsprint is over!
