Hey Guys, happy Tuesday!
In today’s post I’m going to be talking about ‘squad goals’, and what this has meant to me and my friends. You may have noticed that in the last week or so, I’ve been missing from social media and blogging. I decided to take a break from things, and make some changes. So keep an eye out on the blog to see how things improve.
So what is this squad goals thing all about? In the last year or so, you may have seen all over Instagram and Twitter people using the hashtag #SquadGoals. But what does this term actually mean? I guess squad goals is about how you would like your group or circle of friends to be. An aspirational term to describe what you, and your friends would like to accomplish.
Now I mentioned this in my ‘6 Steps to follow Your Dreams’ post I mentioned that you are the company you keep. It’s so important to surround yourself with like-minded individuals who inspire and motivate you to achieve your goals. I’m not not saying all your friends must be a somebody, but surround yourself with those who are driven, that have aspirations no matter what stage in life they’re at.
Squad Goals Meet Ups
Me and my friend decided to have monthly meet ups, where we discuss our goals and what we plan to achieve in the next few months. This can be career related, business related or if you have a plan or an idea. So in our latest session my friend Pilar, founder of My Social Media PA lead our first session. I thought it might be a good idea to share the format of the session as follows:
- What have you achieved in the first 6 months that you are proud of?
- What are your 3 pain points.
- Everyone has 5 mins to brainstorm how they would deal with each issue
- The floor is then open for discussion and advice from all. If it’s your turn, make notes of anything you find useful
- What are your goals / targets for the next 6 months. This is related to tackling your 3 pain points, and you are also free to add to this too.
- Attach dates to these goals, and then catch up on progress in the next session.
I love this format as it makes you remember what good you did, and achieved so far, and get great open outsider advice to solve your pain points. It also applies pressure to take action. I mean you need to have something to say in the follow up sessions! So if you’re as aspirational as me, I suggest you round up your friends and do the same!
