The 12 Week Year: Get more done in 12 weeks than others do in 12 months! (Book Club)



Welcome to our book club episode, featuring  “12 Week Year” by Brian P. Moran and Michael Lennington! You know that feeling you get on New Year's Eve? That fresh start, clean slate vibe? What if you could harness that energy year-round?

Emily covers:

Today we’re digging into creating a clear vision and overcoming mindset hurdles (shifting from “impossible” to “it’s a given”) and how to use strategy blocks, buffer blocks, and breakout blocks each week. We also chat about tracking and keeping score and integrating Weekly Accountability Meetings - or WAMs (not to be confused with WHAM!). And let’s not forget about the important difference between being interested and being committed

Stick around to the end to hear about Emily’s three big goals for this 12- Week Year!
