Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

I'll tell you what's better than a punch in the face...being ready for that punch in the face.

You see, most people set goals, but then give up on those goals when something bad happens. We refer to those times as “getting punched in the face”.

I got punched in the face recently when we lost the financing for a house. We've been living 4 kids and 2 parents in a three bedroom apartment for two years. One of those bedrooms is my office. Now that baby Sherlock is here, we're 5 kids and 2 parents in what is essentially a two bedroom place. But guess what, we can't afford to buy a house right now. We just got punched in the face and have to shift gears.

Mike Tyson once said, “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.”

That’s where Red Team thinking comes into play. A military Red Team is a group that examines, tests, and attacks installations, procedures, and programs to look for weaknesses. Then those weaknesses can be addressed or avoided.

That’s what we do with goals.

To encourage you, here's a pile of the #FacepunchFriday memes I've been posting.

This message was written by a team of geeks, nerds, gamers, and Dr. David Powers. You can always find us at www.callsignredbeard.com. Thanks for reading!

That's got to be one of the few TED Talks I haven't seen yet. Thanks!

David - yep, being ready for that face punch is important.  Here's a popular TED talk from a guy who looked for rejection everywhere he could for 100 days to desensitize himself for getting punched - https://www.ted.com/talks/jia_jiang_what_i_learned_from_100_days_of...
