Mastermind

Last week I started a group in San Francisco among a small group of friends.  We call it Mastermind (although the name is going to change), and the goal is to help one another accomplish goals, try new things, and establish a support structure for every member in the group.  I originally developed the idea while talking with someone in Arizona, who had done this with an organization, ProjectU.  I thought the idea had an amazing application to Stay Positive and decided it was worth trying here in SF.

This group has a few key objectives:
-Time to share something positive, and something new & awesome for every member in the group
-Time for each member to share a challenge or goal they are looking to accomplish, and have the group brainstorm collectively on how that person can overcome their challenge or accomplish their goal
-Time to create an action plan over a few weeks where they can pursue a specific goal
-Partnering with another member to bring accountability and support to your goal
-A group project that every member participates in

The first meeting was extremely positive and constructive towards building a better me.  It instilled a fire that will help me move in the right direction and accomplish things that I wouldn't otherwise.

I'm excited to see how this group progresses over the next couple weeks.  It's my hope that every member finds value, so that it can organically grow into a tight-knit community of young professionals with a focus on positive change.

If you want to learn more, feel free to email me.  I've been so energized by this and would love if you want to be involved.
