Project Passion

Ready to overcome your most important business challenge right now?

Is it time to create your next big thing? Or, are you still waiting to complete that one crucial item you said you wanted to achieve this year?

Or, you could let it drag on… and on… and into 2017… Another year… Another good intention… More of the same…

Beware… The End is Nigh! Christmas is coming. 2016 will soon be over.

Of course you’re busy. We all are. You could put it off til next year. It’ll still be there waiting for you. And, you’ll still be busy.

At some point you have to say enough is enough. Instead of letting your most important business challenge drag on, research shows you can boost your resilience, performance and results by focusing on a short-term highly targeted effort. This is the key to overcoming your specific challenge. This is the power of a time-specific project to pull you out of your daily rut and super-charge your energy. And, if you do it the right way it might even be enjoyable, exciting and perhaps even inspiring.

Why Most Projects Fail

Most Project Planning programs don’t do it the right way – they only focus on WHAT to do. Of course, we need to focus on what to do because without it nothing happens. However, I know from personal experience that this is not always enough. There is always a moment in every project where the honeymoon period ends and the tough stuff begins. Sometimes you can apply willpower and discipline to keep going and sometimes you just can’t.

[Tweet “Most projects fail because of a lack of motivation #projectpassion”]

That’s why we’ve created Project Passion. It’s Project Design that includes your emotions, your inspiration and your passion in the design of your project. It’s includes WHY you are doing it, HOW you are going to stay on track, plus WHAT ELSE you need to streamline your effort. This is the framework you will use to design your project to create your best possible chance of success.

Project Planning Versus Project Design

[Tweet “Project Planning only focuses on the ‘what’, Project Design includes the ‘Why’ and ‘How’ #projectpassion”]

What You Will Learn

  • The difference between Project Planning and Project Design
  • Why your Default Future is holding you back
  • How to be inspired every day
  • Why relying on willpower and discipline doesn’t work
  • How to create new habits that make life easy
  • Why the Elephant is more important than the Rider
  • How to shape your environment to make it easier to do the right thing at the right time
  • The secret to being able to access any resource you need
  • How to overcome any obstacle

What You Will Create

More important than what you will learn, is what you will create. Take a moment to think about your most important business challenge right now… How would you feel when you’ve have had a breakthrough in that area of your business in the next 90 days? That’s the real prize.

There is a greater need than ever before to be smart, to have great ideas and to be able to commercialize them and put them into practice. Geoff is one of the people that does that better than anyone I know.

Group Program

Our first ever 13-week program has just started. Our next event will begin in January 2017. We’re not taking any registrations at the moment. We launch the next program in November.

Note: We will only be taking 10 people. There are 5 people in the current program who will be given first choice to continue. Then we will turn to our ‘first call’ list before we go public. To express your interest in the program and put your name on the ‘first call’ list please contact us here.

You helped me a lot in the early days of creating what is now the Bucket List brand – Thank you!

10x Value

To put the price of this program into context, think about what you want to create for yourself… Aim for 10 times value. For instance, if you paid $3000 plus GST for the Individual Program and you created a project around ‘Getting new clients’, could you generate $30,000 worth of new sales during this time? Likewise, for the group program, can you add $4500 worth of value to your business?

The other side of the equation is to look at the cost of not acting now. For instance, if you’re running your business all on your own and know you need to outsource some tasks, the cost to your health, potential for client mistakes or even family breakdowns could easily be the 10x value you need to make joining the program more than worthwhile.

And, remember the key advantage to the Project Passion Program is that you’ll have support to keep you accountable, lift your flagging spirits and coaching for when you get stuck.

My Biggest Mistake

The biggest mistake I’ve made way too often in my business is to consistently try to do things all by myself. Sometimes I get away with it, often I don’t. We all need support, particularly when we run into hurdles we didn’t expect. And, that’s almost certain if you’re taking on something new.

The Support You Need

Join our program to gain the support you need. It’s based on the latest thinking from world experts in the fields of psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, leadership, environmental design, design thinking and gaming. Its been created to have you win. It’s with a coach to keep you accountable and see things clearly when you get stuck. And, it’s with business people just like you pursuing similar goals. They can cheer you on and they may even be able to help you access the resources you need.

I leave every conversation with Geoff with clarity, energy and a concrete plan. Brilliant!

Access Anywhere

The whole program will be delivered online so you can attend without leaving home, at the office or even when travelling. The weekly sessions will be delivered via webinar technology. All of these will be recorded in case you miss one. Plus, it will be supported with a private Facebook Group so you can ask as many questions as you like, share your wins and learn from your fellow participants. Further, we’ll post your Course Manual and support materials online so you can access them at any time.

How It Works

The Project Passion program runs for 13 weeks. That’s about 90 days or a quarter of the year. You really can achieve a lot in that time. So think big… What would be a great result for you and your business in that time frame?

The program includes ten live sessions that each run for two hours – we give you a little break in between a couple of sessions to free up some time for you to finish your project.

Naturally we’d love it if you could attend every session and we know this may not be possible because you’ll be busy winning your game. We simply ask that you be in action and be in touch through the private Facebook Group. Plus you can catch up with the recordings.

Time and Dates

Friday morning – Melbourne time – 9:00am to 11:00am – Ten sessions over 13 weeks

Are you up for this?

The most important thing we need from you is to create and undertake a Business Project you are committed to fulfilling. We want you to be in action, to be inspired and to play as if your business depends on it!

Also, you need to be willing and able to participate in the online sessions and/or be active on the Facebook group. Whilst all sessions will be recorded to ensure you don’t miss anything, it’s not quite the same as being part of the live conversation.

Accountability – important!

Plus, every Thursday during the program you will be required to submit your project results before 6pm to a Google Docs spreadsheet. This will provide complete transparency for everyone in the group around what you said you would do and what you actually did. I’ll also be sharing my promises and my actions for my project.

This is a crucial five-minute weekly task that could be the most important thing you do to take you from failure to success.

The following day in our live conversation we will then discuss how you are travelling… Are you on track, off-track or have you lost track? And, if necessary we can then have a coaching conversation with you to put you back on your path to success.

This means you need to be coachable. In our first session we will ask you to commit to this – without it our project partnership will not work. Being coachable means being open to a conversation about how your project is going and what is holding you back. Sometimes this can be difficult when a challenging obstacle confronts you. We will provide the care, respect and trust that is central to this conversation.

You gave me clarity and got me moving – huge! Many thanks for getting me started in an area I’ve been thinking about for quite a while.

  2. Coaching – What do you need to accelerate your results?
  3. Big Idea – What do you need to create a breakthrough?
  4. Requests – What do you need from other people?
  5. Completion – What did you learn and what will you do next?

Who is Project Passion For?

This is a business program. This means you’ll be creating and winning a business-based project – what this looks like is up to you. This also means the time commitment you will need to fulfill your project will vary.

You could be just starting your business or have years of experience. Whilst we will be talking about business strategy and we will offer some suggestions, we won’t be telling you how to run your business.

Mostly, we’ll be focusing on what you need to win your game – this may include some personal coaching and even a personal breakthrough.

And, so you know… I’ll be running my own project at the same time as you – I’ll be writing and publishing a new book in 90 days. This puts me in the arena with you so I’ll know what you’re going through and how it feels. Plus, I’ll be sharing my wins, my losses and my struggles. And, if things get really desperate, you might have to coach me! LOL!

Geoff has an astonishing ability to see things from many and varied angles. He combines his outstanding design capability with a creative mind that draws on diverse resources to come up with solutions that you could not have imagined yourself. If you need a creative solution to a challenging problem… call Geoff!
