My Mastermind accountability group is rounding out the last 27.4% of the year with a mad dash to the finish line we are calling our 100 Day Challenge. It's kind of like Masterminding on steroids. The last 100 days of the year through December 31 are broken into 10 day blocks and each block has ambitious but achievable goals.
The challenge has forced me to really focus on my primary goals and structure my daily activities toward the end of achieving them using a Deep Work strategy (RE: Cal Newport). I can definitely feel the pressure now, so I can tell the Challenge is having some good effect on me. There is a noticeable ramping up of work intensity, requiring good time management.
