Horizon Storyline

Coach GuideBy Master ToolHorizon Storyline

Purpose/Objective

To explain to participants the Horizon Storyline master tool, and invite them to begin the journey of creating their 3-year LifePlan.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: The Horizon Storyline is the right amount of vision content and the right amount of time as we look into the future, which provides the break-thru you need to take the next step in your life.

  • Redraw the Vision Frame and label the different parts of the frame, alongside the primary question that each part of the frame is answering:
    • LifeCall: the WHAT question
    • LifeCore: the WHY question
    • LifeSteps: the HOW question
    • LifeScore: the WHEN (win) question
    • Place the WHERE question in the middle of the frame to demonstrate that the Horizon Storyline tool helps us answer this dynamic question in creating our future (“Where is God taking me?”)
  • Draw the picture of the mountains, path and sign inside the frame and demonstrate the three horizons that our literal eyes focus on (background, midground and foreground)
  • Briefly describe the four parts of the Horizon Storyline and how they correlate to the picture.
    • Beyond the Horizon= (1) three-year vision of the future
    • Background Horizon= (4) one-year objectives
    • Midground Horizon= (1) ninety day goal
    • Foreground Horizon= (4) weekly action steps

Purpose/Objective

To help participants identify their three year vision.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: God uses His design of our abilty to envision to propel us forward into the places He is calling us.

  • Encourage the participants to place themselves three years into the future, thinking through what they hope their life will look like. This imaginative exercise should include how old their kids will be, what life stage they will be in, where they will be living and a number of other questions about the future.
  • Having done this, participants come up with an image or metaphor for what they hope their life will be like three years from now.
  • Once participants have identified a guiding metaphor or image, have them come up with a short phrase to describe that metaphor in action
  • Now having the short phrase, participants identify up to nine vivid bullet-point descriptions of what their life will look like three years from now.
  • Have participants share their metaphors, short phrases and vivid bullet-point descriptions with each other.

Purpose/Objective

Help participants identify their four, one year objectives.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: – “One-Year Objectives bridge the gap between your favored future and your particular present.” – Will Mancini

  • Use the Background Horizons worksheet to help participants answer the questions:
    • Where are they at? (Exercise done on pg 4)
    • Where are they going? (Exercise done on pg 74)
    • How are they going to get there?
  • Participants have already answered the first two columns on the worksheet in previous exercises. Have them look at the completed exercises on page 6 and 74 in their Participant Guide and ask the question, “How do I get from here to there? And what all has to happen?”
  • Have them write that list of things in the third column.
  • Remind the participants that the third column represents everything that has to happen over three years.

  • Encourage participants to group and prioritize the most important things that must happen this year, into four, one-year objectives.
  • The boxes on the bottom of the worksheet are where they can articulate their four 1 year objectives.

Purpose/Objective

To help participants have a more concrete understanding of what the Midground Horizon is and how it brings radical singularity and inspiration to the LifePlan.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: “Your LifeCall tells you succinctly what you’re supposed to be doing always. Your 90 Day Goal tells you succinctly what you’re supposed to be doing now…It is enough time for an individual to accomplish something truly significant.” – Will Mancini

  • Define the Midground Horizon: a singular emphasis stated as both a quantitative and qualitative goal to be accomplished in the next 90 days.
  • Use S.M.A.R.T. to bring specifics to that definition: S = Specific, M = Measurable, A = Achievable, R = Relevant, T= Time sensitive.
  • Explain the power of having 1 goal to focus on over the next 90 days.
  • Use The Four Disciplines of Execution diagram to talk through the tension between the Urgent and the Important in our lives.
  • Refer to The Four Disciplines of Execution video—which states that the fewer goals a person has at one time, the more likely he or she is to accomplish them.
  • Inform the group of the multitude of resources that are beginning to testify to the power of living life 90 days at a time.
  • Remind the group of the way our seasons remind us of a similar reality.

Context-Specific Tips

  • Accelerator

    The most strategic 90 Day Goal a participant may have coming out of an Accelerator is to firm up and complete all of the tools within the Younique Full Experience so that they have a strong, complete foundation to build upon as they design their life into the future.

  • Weekly Cohort

    You can give the Four Disciplines of Execution Video ahead of time for participants to watch prior to this session.

Purpose/Objective

To help participants identify and declare their first 90 day goal.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Your 90 Day Goal is the “focus” component of your LifePlan that keeps your attention on something strategically important that will help you reach the destination you’re dreaming of.

  • Use the Midground Horizon worksheet to help participants get the picture of funneling their ideas of what is most important over the next 90 days down to one 90 day goal.
  • Encourage participants to brainstorm at least six different possibilities for their one, 90 day goal within the funnel.
  • Reference your personal 90 day goal and the various examples in their Participant Guide to help get the participants started.
  • Give participants 10 minutes to identify the one goal for their first 90 days.
  • Invite participants to share their 90 day goals with their group.

Purpose/Objective

To help participants have a more concrete understanding of what the Foreground Horizon is and how it integrates “weekly Action Steps” for each of their Storylines into their LifePlan for the purpose of wholistic living.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: The regular rhythms you step into, in every area of your life, create potential for lasting change AND progress.

  • Define the Foreground Horizon: 4 specific Action Steps that will help you focus on gaining or taking ground in each Storyline of your life, advancing toward the 90 Day destination while gaining traction in areas of life that need it.
  • Demonstrate the link between the 4 “weekly Action Steps” and the 4 Storylines of the participants LifeScore.
  • Explain that each of these “weekly Action Steps” continue for 90 days and then after 90 days are replaced with new “weekly Action Steps”.

Purpose/Objective

To help participants identify their actions steps over the next 90 days, the rhythms necessary to accomplish it and the practice of doing it so they can do it on their own in the future.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: NOW Rhythms help you align the hopes of tomorrow with the present needs of today.

  • Have participants take out the LifeSteps Worksheet (pg 57) from their Notebook.
  • Instruct participants to now evolve their LifeSteps focuses, declared a few sessions ago, into Action Steps and then add a Rhythm to this regular action over the next 90 days.
  • Encourage participants to think through how their 4 “weekly Action Steps” relate to their 90 day goal (remember each Action Step may have a direct or indirect relation to the 90 day goal).
  • Give opportunity for participants to share their 4 Weekly Action Steps with the group.
