Unless you don’t have a lot of free time on your hands (who does?) you probably have learned to use Facebook a bit more intelligently. Facebook groups and Facebook events could be a great resource when it comes to finding a mastermind group or accountability partner for the goals you want to achieve or create lasting habits. I created a Facebook event under my Facebook page and originally used it as an inspiration from a recent book I read, Mini Habits: Smaller Habits, Bigger Results by Stephen Guise. Watch the video below on specific lessons learned from that challenge:
Advice on Running a Challenge on a Facebook Group or Event
Here is my advice to anybody who is in a Facebook group or doing a challenge to build better habits or achieve his/her goals, whatever it may be.
- Take the time to learn from your challenge by doing the work but also reflecting on what you learned. If you go to the Facebook event page I created, you will see that every day I posted an image but also along the way some of my posts were full of lessons learned that I shared with everybody in the group.
- Facebook is a time kill so be SUPER diligent when it comes to logging in or I should say opening the Facebook app on your phone. Every time I logged in to post something on the Facebook challenge, I got distracted by my newsfeed. If you are doing a daily challenge on Facebook you really need to work on this. Stick to checking one thing off your to-do list and close the app.
- When it comes to achieving goals, building meaning and intentional habits, tackling one or at most two goals at a time is critical. Be intentional about your goals, tackle the ones that has a higher impact on your life and take action towards it every day no matter how small your actions may seem to be. As long as you are putting in work everyday, before you know it will establish meaningful habits.
- If you ever decide to create your own Facebook group or Facebook event on your page, don’t invite the whole world to your event. You can write/scope/record about your progress but invitation to many Facebook events is now a bit spammy on Facebook. I don’t pay attention to my event invites anymore, if you want to impact people act, inspire and people will find you and your events.
- Feel free to use my Facebook event as your accountability partner page. I already changed the event date so it is now indefinite. Although I won’t be posting everyday, I will receive your posts as a Facebook notification and will be there to cheer you along when I log into Facebook. It is a safe place, an inner circle of very supportive and like-minded people. Feel free to join in! Here is the link to my event again. http://www.arzugosney.com/fb-event
