The effects of my mastermind group have been unmeasurable. It is the time of the week I use for a general chat, refocus and discuss hobbies and interests that I wouldn’t be able to with many other of counterparts.
I have been in several mastermind groups before, but it is so refreshing to find a group that are all on the same page and want to achieve similar goals.
There is very much a sense of ‘I don’t want to be the first one to give up’ in the group which holds us all accountable.
The general mastermind call can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours and it is a chance to catch up on what the other person is working on, set goals for the week and hold each other accountable.
Our mastermind group has a rotation call roster, because we are all in different parts of the world it would be extremely difficult to find a time that suited everyone for a group mastermind call so we have 1 on 1 calls and report back to the group what was discussed in our private Facebook group.
Many of us are up to the website and content creation phase now. We have chosen our niches and done enough research to get us started on the content creation.
I have created a content plan for some direction in the content creation phase and this week I plan to have another Pillar Article written and that’s what I am being held accountable for in the mastermind group this week.
The Turning Point
There comes a point where you need to stop reading articles and contradicting everything you are doing and just start doing the absolute basics which is what I struggled with when I started this blog at JustJimmy.me
The first week of content creation was the hardest because everything needed to be perfect in my mind and it slowed down progress dramatically. Eventually I broke through the barrier and just produced content daily with ease and that is the phase I want to get to again.
The only difference will be the research that needs to go into these niche site articles. When you are writing a blog you need little to no research you can just begin writing whatever is on your mind and add a few references where applicable.
Continue to always keep making progress no matter how small, all those small efforts add up to something substantial when you look back on what you have achieved.
The biggest momentum killer is taking no action over a sustained amount of time because it is hard to get that momentum back. Schedule your time appropriately and start a mastermind group selecting the people you want to be in it very carefully because it makes all the difference.
