5 Days to your Best Year Ever by Michael Hyatt is a goal setting program I'd heard about last year. You can follow along during my first hand review of the 2018 program with Pat Flynn's mastermind group.

Overview of the a goal setting program

2018 is right around the corner. This year, I’m taking the goal setting to a new level with Michael Hyatt’s Best Year Ever. Here is why.

It seems that every year I am setting some goals. This time each year, I make some resolutions, get really pumped up, and never execute half of what I plan. To change this trajectory, I bought the 2018 Best Year Ever. I passed up on the offer in 2017, this year wasn’t going to pass me by.

So what tipped the scales? The accountability with Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income fame. He sent out one email. Literally one email to me while I was considering buying the upgraded version (VIP in Hyatt-speak) for the added support. 

Why you ask?

It seems the one thing I’ve been missing is a wing-man. I group or person to keep me on track going through the same things. 

Hyatt offered a VIP experience. However, when I saw Pat’s email it changed everything. Not only was a Facebook group offered up, but also live streams with Pat every day for the 5-day training AND quarterly check in webinars (2 hours each). 

How could I turn that down? 

If you aren’t familiar with Michael Hyatt or the Best Year Ever, I will provide here a synopsis of what I know and will share my experience as I got through each day.


Who is Michael Hyatt?

From his website bio and from his book Platform, you will see that Hyatt plays in the Leadership space. Much of his teachings are applicable to professionals and entrepreneurs. 

Over the last year, his branding and website have undergone a total redesign to a magazine-style format. This rebranding and upscaling of quality content is evident in the Best Year Ever 2018. The course content, videos, transcripts, exercises, and audio are top notch. I’ve been through a lot of training, and this is likely the highest quality production I have seen.


How is the program structured?

The course is divided into 5 lessons. Each lesson is designed to be completed each day for five consecutive days. There isn’t a requirement to do it this way. You could complete the entire course in an afternoon. For me – I’m going to do the daily rhythm with the Team Flynn since this is my first time through Best Year Ever.

I am setting up and considering some best practices to ensure better success with this course, including…

  1. Blocking consistent day, time and place to complete the work without distraction.
  2. Downloading the audio-only to my iPhone and intend to stream via my podcasting app Downcast.
  3. Printing the 42-page workbook even though the course has full transcripts to read the presentation (sweet! all senses covered!).
  4. Taking the course with a cohort or team, maybe even your spouse and entire family.

Over the course of the next few days, I will be sharing my experiences. Today I will begin Day 1 and share my impression of the lesson and my takeaways.

I’m also excited to share my experience with the online Facebook mastermind and accountability group provided by Pat Flynn.
