Progress Log #1
January 25, 2016 at 8:38 pm #13518
- My partner and I scheduled a new morning routine of having a quick breakfast, going for a walk, and then spending a focused hour on our e-course material before starting the work day.
- Result? Motivation and exhileration! It feels amazing prioritizing work for ME before I do work for someone else. My partner and I each also feel really aligned and supported.
- The checkpoints and bite-size tasks are highly motivating to me. I can’t wait to get to the next checkpoint tonight.
- The “fun factor” of the tasks and videos makes me look forward to doing them rather than it feeling like another task or job I need to squeeze into my day.

Awesome progress log Jeff! You are off to an excellent start! Keep it up and you’ll launch your dream course in no time 😉January 25, 2016 at 9:28 pm #13530
YES!!!! Our evil plan of creating a fun, interactive, engaging, inspiring creation space is working perfectly. Stoked to hear your progress @Jeff_kuipers. Keep the shares coming!January 26, 2016 at 8:53 am #13671
Ha – Eviiiiiiiiil Genius! What’s next, a plan to take over the world?January 26, 2016 at 9:10 am #13677
What I am letting go of RIGHT NOW to create the space, courage and confidence I need to reach the top of Launch Summit?
The biggest thing I’m letting go of is the idea that I don’t need to do it ALONE.
When I enlist the support of others I:
January 26, 2016 at 12:44 pm #13757
- Have the extra motivation and accountability to stick to powerful daily practices even when I don’t feel like it and would otherwise let myself slack off. Following through on these small practices every day gives me confidence that I can follow through on the big things I want to accomplish.
- Have access to ideas, resources, and skills beyond my own. (This seems so obvious when I write it down but less so in my own head)
- Have an opportunity to meet really cool and amazing people that I wouldn’t otherwise have met.
- Open the door to possibilities I wouldn’t have thought of or made happen on my own.
- Have way more freaking FUN! (Awwwww Yeaaaaaah!)
Taking over the world is a bit further along in our 7 Step Evil Plan Process. Soon though!!!
Love your second entry. It’s exciting to see how these little shifts can inspire big changes and newfound passion and momentum!January 27, 2016 at 9:54 am #13929
Progress Log#3 The first test of will
Today was the first big test of whether or not I’d stick to my daily practices: I had a friend over last night, I drank too much and I was seriously hung-over this morning. (Something I haven’t experienced in years). The desire to not lose this building momentum, and not to let down my adventure buddy (my wife) was more powerful than my physical body saying “Are you crazy?!? Go back to sleep!!!”
I’m still a bit hung-over, but I feel exhilerated and proud of myself. I also completed my intention setting this morning, finishing with this:
I am committed to actually LAUNCHING an amazing eCourse. This is a significant piece towards having the FREEDOM to make my own art on a full-time basis and do Transformation Events around the world! I will stick with it even if it gets difficult, inconvenient, or messy. I will remember to have FUN doing this. And above all I will remember that I AM NOT ALONE in this adventure!
I’m loving this adventure!January 27, 2016 at 12:54 pm #13945
Huge high five for this bro. We gave you an honorary shout-out at the Coaching Campfire today right at the beginning. Way to show up. You passed your own test and bypassed your own boobytrap!!January 27, 2016 at 6:12 pm #13964
Andy FreistMountain Guide@andyfreist
Booyah! Way to kick your resistance in the ass!
Keep em’ comin Jeff! 😉January 27, 2016 at 7:13 pm #13984
Thanks for the encouragement!
The webcast today was really helpful – it’s great getting a peek behind the curtain of your development process. I especially liked hearing about your timeline from Idea to Pre-sale package, and how you are creating 3 checkpoints ahead instead of waiting to finish everything before offering. I love how this bypasses “it’s gotta be perfect” log-jams! Part of this journey for me is to train myself not to wait until conditions are perfect to make my dreams happen!
It was also really helpful hearing how Bradley reduced pressure on himself with a 5-year plan as opposed to “This needs to succeed NOW!” I am starting to believe that this can be a financially successful venture, but I’m even more excited about the experience (adventure) itself in the moment. I love this balance of thoroughly enjoying the journey and also holding excited anticipation of the destination.January 27, 2016 at 7:48 pm #14006
So glad today’s coaching campfire landed so well for you Jeff.
Your imperfections are perfect.
Thinking longterm makes the short term so much more fun and enjoyable!!
Glad you’re loving the journey for what it is — a kickass adventure in the pursuit of passions, creative expression and eCourse creation.January 28, 2016 at 10:05 am #14058
Progress Log#4 Huge personal breakthrough defining my “Why”
- I’ve previously got lost trying to make money doing things I didn’t enjoy to have the freedom to make my art someday “later”. This patently doesn’t work for me!
- So much of what I find motivating is in expressing my personal creativity, and I am embracing THIS as my current creative project.
- My answer to “what will you do when you replace your income?” turned out simply to have MORE time for personal creative projects of which I have many.
- This distinction that I can make my creative projects happen NOW even while I work full time, and have even MORE time for my creative projects when things take off is intensely exciting!
- On top of that this is FUN, I’m learning a ton, developing skills and disciplines, building something exciting with my wife, and meeting really cool people!
Yep, LOTS of great “why” here!January 28, 2016 at 11:04 am #14078
Wooohoooo! High fives Jeff. So exciting to see the husband/wife team rocking it on the mountain!! Beautiful clarity this AM. The hangover must be gone!February 1, 2016 at 9:41 am #14607
Progress Log#5 Keeping a rhythm through the weekend
February 1, 2016 at 10:46 am #14620
- Back at our morning rhythm today – I REALLY missed it over the weekend!
- Catherine didn’t want to do this 7 days a week so it wouldn’t feel like work and also so it wouldn’t feel like breaking steady progress if we missed it for some reason. Personally, I didn’t like the feeling of breaking our momentum. We need to find some kind of happy balance here.
- We did have discussion about our course over the weekend but I felt so much less productive.
- Also the game-player in me WANTS TO MAKE PROGRESS!
Love how passionate about this you are @Jeff_kuipers.
Perhaps the happy medium is making your weekends about going off on real life adventures together and in that adventure, talking about your courses, ideas, etc… Just bring a journal, connect with nature, climb a mountain and brainstorm. THEN take all that inspiration and apply it to the coming week.
Andy and I did a five hour hike along the coast yesterday. Even got lost. We also got mega clarity while out moving our bodies and connecting to nature!
