Squad Goals: What does that even mean?

Clique, Squad, Crew, Homies, Dawgs etc. No matter what you call them everyone needs that set of people they call friends. You know, that crew you can do anything with? The ones you tell your secrets to? The ones that entice you to go out on the weekends and stay out late and drink too much? Yes them, the best people on earth….the Squad. Well we already know that finding a loyal squad can be hard enough, but once you find a squad what should your squad goals really be?

Well, I gathered my squad together and asked them a few questions about what makes us special and how we could really maximize on our friendship.

How to Find Your Squad

  1. Don’t put too much pressure on the whole thing. Your squad should form organically and it doesn’t have to be big. Some of the best friendships you will ever have will be just you and another person.
  2. Be inclusive. The last thing we need in the LGBT community is exclusivity. The more diverse your friendships are the more enriching your activities will be
  3. Test out a few. If you are like me, one crew just may not be enough. Hang out with all kinds of people and other crews. That way you can connect one clique with another clique and next thing you know its a party.
  4. Pick friends that live on your level. Squad friendships should be bonds that are not broken. These people should uplift and inspire you. They should call you out on your BS, and should be willing to help you out of any bind. It also helps if their life goals some what reflect yours, so choose carefully.

SQUAD GOALS :

I know usually when you see the words #SquadGoals they are usually referring to what they want their squad to look like, but there are levels to this. Your squad, no matter how big or how small, should actually have goals. Things you all want to aspire to or things you want to do. For example, one of my squad’s goals this year is to take a group trip overseas. We have set the plan, we know how much it will cost and we know when we are leaving. Together we will make sure we are are able to make the trip.

How to Set Squad Goals:

Now this is not a homework assignment by any means, but at Boi Society we believe in living life to its full potential and who better to help you catch your dreams then your friends.

  1. Actually discuss your goals. Your goals don’t have to be the same but just saying what you want to your friends can really help.
  2. Hold each other accountable. If your friend says they want to work out more, actually check in with them to see if they are accomplishing it. Push them to be better today then they were yesterday. They will usually give you push back, but I promise eventually they will thank you for it
  3. Motivate and Inspire them. When I told my friends I wanted to buy a condo, they would text me house listings, and randomly send me housewarming gifts even before I ever had my new place. These things kept me very motivated on my journey to becoming a homeowner.
  4. Don’t let them be too hard on themselves. The thing about accomplishing a goal is that your friends may fail a few times on your way to success. Usually they will be their biggest critic so sometimes your job is to help your squad relax and take it easy.
