Ep 173 - Getting on the Same Page with Money | A Couples Goal Setting Retreat Case Study
49:43

Do you have a New Year’s Resolution about your health, organization, or money?

 

There’s a good chance you do because, statistically, these are the three most common goals people set every year. But as we mentioned in the last episode, only eight percent of people actually succeed in implementing their resolutions. One of the big challenges here is that you can’t succeed alone, especially if you have a significant other, but so many of us try to.

 

Today, we are sharing the case study of a couple who ran up against that challenge year after year – which, ultimately, meant they were fighting about money year after year – until they started having an annual couple’s goal-setting retreat 10 years ago. Now, Jenn and JP Lewis never fight about money, and in this episode, we’re going to break down how they did it and the ONE thing you can do today that will make everything else easier or unnecessary when it comes to setting your annual goals.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [4:45] Jenn’s advice for anyone who is hesitant to participate in a couple’s goal-setting retreat
  • [12:00] What it looks like to reallocate funds and time to what matters most, as a team.
  • [18:00] Why you need emotional buy-in during the goal-setting process.
  • [25:00] The ONE thing you can do to make starting the couple’s goal-setting process easier or unnecessary.
  • [43:30] How becoming part of a community of goal setters can bring your couple’s goal setting to a new level.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

 

So, out of everything that you've heard in this episode, what's your lead domino? What's that first step?

 

We’ll recap the tools covered in this episode, and you can choose just ONE to be your lead domino:

 

 

The choice is yours. Where will you actually begin? And will you just be the type of person that takes action before you check your email today?

Do you run a small business?

So ask yourself, it time to take off some of your hats?

Ep 172 - Increase Your Impact with The ONE Thing | Wyatt Graves
46:10

Have you started implementing the principles of The ONE Thing in your life?

 

It’s surprisingly simple... but it’s not easy. We’ve spoken with thousands of you who have started living The ONE Thing, and once you start going down that path, you realize something pretty quickly: there’s no way to succeed alone.

 

Today, we’re sharing Wyatt Graves’ journey from discovering to implementing the principles of The ONE Thing – to empowering a community to live these principles, too.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [7:45] What changes when you start living The ONE Thing
  • [13:00] How Wyatt recruited the most important people in his life to come to the goal-setting retreat with him (even those who were a little skeptical)
  • [19:30] What it looks like when you have a relationship with your goals
  • [26:40] What most people are missing when they start trying to implement The ONE Thing
  • [33:00] How to endure the monotony of success

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Are you on your road to mastery when it comes to living The ONE Thing? And what do you think will be possible if the people in your world start going down that road, too?

 

When we asked Wyatt why he continues down this road to mastery, he said it’s because he knows that all leadership begins with self-leadership; it’s difficult to influence the people you care about if you’re not, first and foremost, walking the talk.

 

So who in your world do you really care about and who need to hear this message? Who do you want to experience what you’re experiencing by implementing the principles of The ONE Thing?

 

Send them this episode, send them to the1thing.com, or send an email introducing them to Geoff [at] the1thing.com and he will personally respond. We are that committed because we are unwilling to accept the status quo of living a life by default, instead of living a life by design.

Ep 171 - Resolutions vs. Habits | Why ONE is Better Than the Other
29:38

Half of all Americans make New Year’s resolutions each year – but how many succeed?

According to a study conducted by the University of Scranton and published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology, only EIGHT PERCENT of people who set resolutions will actually succeed in implementing them.

Today, we want to share why we believe that so many people fail – and the ONE thing you can do to be successful in making the changes you want to make this year.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [2:45] Why most people aren’t successful in implementing their resolutions.
  • [5:40] Why does it matter if you get in better shape, get more organized, or spend less (three of the most common resolutions)?
  • [6:30] How to get clear on the WHY and PURPOSE behind your goals.
  • [11:30] Why your time blocking needs to reflect your priorities.
  • [13:30] What motivates people.
  • [18:00] What you can do to turn a resolution into a habit.
  • [22:45] ONE tip for becoming part of the 8% who succeed.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

So, where do you get started?

Like anything with The ONE Thing, we encourage you to think big and then go small. So instead of thinking about everything we talked about in this episode, we encourage you to focus on just the ONE thing you can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary.

Keep asking the clarifying question until you find a specific, measurable activity – then go on a 66-day challenge, put that activity in your calendar, and make that activity a habit.

Ep. 165 - Time Blocking for Rapid Business Growth | with Matthew Pollard
24:28

Do you ever feel like you’re putting in a lot of hard work to achieve extraordinary results in your business or in you role, day in and day out, but you just aren’t going anywhere?


We all have the same 24 hours in a day, yet some people get different results – and it all comes down to how you manage your time. If you’re acting entrepreneurially, constantly relying on your natural ability, taking action, making mistakes, and tweaking things, you’re going to run up against a ceiling of achievement. But you have an opportunity to get purposeful – to identify a model and system for achieving extraordinary results.


To help us leverage that opportunity, we’re talking to someone who is responsible for five multi-million dollar business success stories in his home country of Australia, all before the age of 30. His humble beginnings, the adversities that he faced, and his rise to success are inspirational stories of how anyone, with the right motivation and the right strategies, can achieve anything they set their mind to – including rapid business growth. Our guest is the bestselling author of The Introvert's Edge, Matthew Pollard.


In this episode, you will learn...

  • [3:40] The ONE thing that’s missing for so many of us.
  • [7:30] The 3-step model that will help you move from E to P when it comes to scaling your business.
  • [10:10] What this 3-step model looks like in practice


The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Have you ever sat down and and really asked yourself, “what’s the value that I deliver?”


Have you ever actually looked out at the market to see if there is an unmet need, as opposed to just doing the work that falls into your lap? Have you ever considered what a more scalable sales system for your business might look like?


We love that you take the time to invest in your education by listening to this podcast, and we also know that the greatest results come when you back it with action.


So how much time can you block off to identify your purpose or ask yourself these questions? When will you do it?

Ep 163 - How To Host Your Own Goal Setting Retreat | Jay Papasan & Wendy Papasan
01:11:10

Consider the things that you want to accomplish in your life... is it possible for you to achieve those things alone?


Achieving all of our goals requires the support of our significant others, our business partners, our bosses, and our friends. But how many of us actually have a process for setting goals with these people who have a stake in our success? Sadly, very few of us do. But this is something we can change!


Over a decade ago, The ONE Thing co-author Jay Papasan and his wife Wendy Papasan set aside a night for ONE purpose: casting a vision for what they wanted their lives to look like together so that they would be on the same page – and the idea of a couples goal-setting retreat was born! In this episode, we’re sharing a live webinar featuring Jay and Wendy, in which they talk about what their retreats look like and what you need to know to prepare for your own goal-setting retreat.


As you go through this episode, if you find yourself thinking, “I want to do this,” you have three options:



In this episode, you will learn...

  • [12:20] How you can prepare for your goal-setting retreat (even if you’re on a budget)
  • [17:00] What you can do if your significant other, friend, or teammate is not a goal setter
  • [30:50] What it looks like when your goals are not aligned & how you can collaborate in this situation
  • [36:00] How you can keep your goals in front of you throughout the year (even when life gets in the way)
  • [46:00] The basic framework for your goals & the boundaries you should set


The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:


Gary Keller says you’re never more than five years away from where you want to be – if you’re willing to do the right things and you have support from the people around you.


So ask yourself, who are those people, that handful of people, who matter most when it comes to achieving what you want to achieve? Do those people know what you’re really striving for over the next 12 months, or the next five years? And what would be possible if, every single day, you had them in your corner supporting you while you take the actions necessary for success?


Don’t let this be just another piece of content that goes in one year and out the other – make a commitment to yourself to be the kind of person who takes action!


If you want to bring a goal setting retreat into your life, you have three options:

Ep 162 - Setting Goals as a Couple | You Can Be Anywhere You Want in the Next 5 Years
45:57

What were the things you really wanted out of life five years ago... and do you have them today?


For many of us, the answer is no. But why? Most of us don’t know the proper way to set our goals or create a plan that we CAN accomplish, and we don’t have the tools necessary to build a real relationship with our goals so that we can make consistent progress – and that’s why we created The ONE Thing Couples Goal Setting Retreat.


John Schumacher and Carol Stack are perennial goal setters, but they never did it together. Then, after going on their first couples goal setting retreat, they saw a transformation in their results.


If you want those results in your relationship – whether that be with your significant other, business partner, team, boss, or friends – then you have three options:



In this episode, you will learn...

  • [10:20] How to recognize and break through that ceiling of achievment you keep running into
  • [15:30] Why setting goals as a team can help you overcome limiting beliefs
  • [20:00] What happens when you come together to create a plan and accountability
  • [28:30] How you can get buy-in from your significant other or team members for a couples goal setting retreat
  • [37:20] Why annual goal setting will quickly become a habit that you won’t want to break


The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Imagine that it’s five years from now and you are looking back at this very moment; the moment that you knew you could be anywhere you want to be in the next five years, and you’re celebrating because you’re there.


What does that look like for you, and what are the things that you started doing differently?


We know that many of you listen to the show because you’re high achievers, and you’ve probably set goals at some point in time... which means you probably also know what it’s like to struggle with your goals because the people in your life don’t know how to support you. No one succeeds alone, but most people try to – and it doesn’t have to be that way.


Will you make a commitment to yourself and your future to identify the people in your life who have the greatest stake in your success, and then bring them in to set goals as a team?


If you want to bring a goal setting retreat into your life, you have three options:

Ep 161 - Discover If You're Accidentally Diminishing the Talent Around You | Liz Wiseman
01:02:26

Are you multiplying or diminishing the people around you?


After we released episode 145 with Liz Wiseman, author of New York Times bestseller Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter, we received a lot of feedback from all of you. We all know that no one succeeds alone – but working with and leading other people isn’t easy, and we’re not taught how to do it in school.


So for this episode, we brought Liz Wiseman back, but with a twist: instead of us interviewing her, she’s going to turn the tables on Geoff Woods and help him identify where he’s diminishing as a leader. Whether you own a business, are a leader in an organization, or are an employee, this is a valuable episode because it will help you gain clarity on where you could be doing a better job of showing up and how you are influencing the people around you.


In this episode, you will learn...

  • [8:00] How your strengths can end up diminishing others
  • [19:35] What leaders can give their teams space and reign themselves in during meetings or conversations
  • [28:35] How learning a few “back pocket questions” can help you multiply the people around you (and what these questions sound like)
  • [35:40] What accidental diminishers can do to start intentionally multiplying & what employees or family members can say when they are being diminished
  • [55:55] ONE thing accidental diminishers should understand and implement


The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Where might you be accidentally diminishing?


It’s not a bad thing to admit that you have diminishing tendencies – we all do! One of the three commitments of The ONE Thing is following the path of mastery; always focusing on how you can get just a little bit better in any area of your life. There are spaces where you are doing extraordinarily well, but there are also places where you’re still a student and opportunities to improve.


So what is the ONE thing you can do that will make multiplying the people around you easier or unnecessary?

Ep 160 - Avoiding 3 Critical Mistakes of Business Growth | Abe Shreve
01:06:51

Why is it that the majority of businesses fail?


We see this all the time with, whether it's our members or the people that we do trainings with at a corporate level. Everybody always has the best of intentions in their career. Yet, they don't realize the subtle simple mistakes that they are making. And if they had the right person on the frontline of their business with them, coaching them, and guiding them, they would be able to avoid making the mistakes that ultimately lead to burnout.


For over a year, you have heard us talk about the possibility of introducing The ONE Thing Coaching, a one-on-one coaching program based on the principles of The ONE Thing. A lot of you sent us emails saying you’d love that opportunity, but we hadn't earned the right to bring this program to market because we were missing a person.


We found that person, Abe Shreve, and we’re excited for you to meet him in this episode. Over the last five years, he has personally led over 9000 independent coaching calls. He has had conversations with business owners from across all industries. And he has a unique perspective on what mistakes you may be making that will lead to burnout and, ultimately, to the loss of your business.


If you are interested in exploring what it looks like to have a coach who can be there and guide you based on the principles of The ONE Thing, go to The1Thing.com/training. You'll see an option for The ONE Thing Coaching, and you can submit your interest there.


In this episode, you will learn...

  • [05:53] Mistake #1: Not lining up the dominoes
  • [11:08] Mistake #2: Not learning to succeed through others
  • [38:31] Mistake #3: Not creating a culture where accountability is the lifeblood of how we work and interact with each other


The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:


If after this episode, you find yourself saying, "Wow, that seems like a lot,” remember that the path to getting everything you want starts by getting just ONE thing at a time. So what's the one thing you can do such that by doing it, everything else would be easier or unnecessary?


Maybe you need to complete your GPS for the upcoming year. Maybe you need to go through and do a 411 with your team. Maybe you need to look at your hiring practices. Maybe you need to sit down with your team in front of a white board and really ask, "What is our culture in one single descriptive word? What does it come down to?"


Whatever you choose, we hope that you are the type of person who actually takes action.


And if you believe what Abe says, that a great place to start would be to get a coach, please go to The1Thing.com/training. You'll see an option there for ONE Thing coaching.

Ep 159 - How to Set Goals With Your Significant Other if They're Not a Goal Setter | Jake & Alyx Dreyfuss
38:53

When you’re setting goals, do you ask yourself who in your life directly contributes to whether or not you achieve that goal?


No one succeeds alone – but most people try to. One of the biggest mistakes we see people making is that they set goals by themselves, then they struggle throughout the year because the most important people in their life aren’t on the same page.


Our guests Jake and Alyx Dreyfuss blocked off time for their first couples goal-setting retreat last year. In this episode, Jake and Alyx share the discussions they had, the changes that have occurred over the past year, and what they’re doing differently for this upcoming year.


If you want to learn more about what it looks like to go on your own goal-setting retreat, go to the1thing.com/event and check out what we’re doing for The ONE Thing Couples Goal-Setting Retreat in Nov. 2018.


In this episode, you will learn...

  • [12:30] How you know when you aren’t on the same page with the people close to you.
  • [17:00] What has surprised Jake & Alyx since their goal-setting retreat.
  • [24:15] Why you should set goals with not just your significant other, but also your business partner and/or team.
  • [26:50] What you should avoid when you’re setting goals.
  • [27:45] How to set goals when you aren’t a natural goal setter (and why you should).


The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

The ONE Thing is the surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results – it’s not the surprisingly easy truth. In this episode, you hear how challenging the process of setting goals together is... and you also hear how much it helps.


Who is riding shotgun with you who you can sit down with and have the deep conversations, which you might have been avoiding up until now? It’s not about negotiating for whose goal is going to win. It’s about understanding what the other person wants and asking how you can help them get it.


What would be possible in your life if you made a goal-setting retreat a yearly ritual?

31:28

If habits decide your future and you decide your habits, what are the habits you can acquire today that will help you create your ideal future?

 

We want to help you form the power habits that will help you achieve extraordinary results, in every area of your life. That’s why we wrote The ONE Thing, that’s why we created the Living Your ONE Thing Community, and that’s why we’re sharing this conversation with someone who has built a career focused on helping others create better habits, make better decisions, and live better lives.

 

Our guest is James Clear, author of the upcoming book Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones (releasing 10/16/18), and in this episode, he will share how you can become the architect of your habits, rather than continue to be a victim of them.

Ep 158 - Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones | James Clear
31:22

If habits decide your future and you decide your habits, what are the habits you can acquire today that will help you create your ideal future?


We want to help you form the power habits that will help you achieve extraordinary results, in every area of your life. That’s why we wrote The ONE Thing, that’s why we created the Living Your ONE Thing Community, and that’s why we’re sharing this conversation with someone who has built a career focused on helping others create better habits, make better decisions, and live better lives.


Our guest is James Clear, author of the upcoming book Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones (releasing 10/16/18), and in this episode, he will share how you can become the architect of your habits, rather than continue to be a victim of them.

Ep 157 - Hiring Top Talent and Finding the Right Assistant | Brindley Tucker
01:09:55

Do you feel like you could be doing more... but there’s just not enough time?


Whenever we feel like we’re running into a ceiling of achievement, when we feel like we just can’t quite do anymore, we’re just missing a person. As Gary Keller says, “No one succeeds alone.”


That’s why we’re sharing this conversation with Brindley Tucker, a KW MAPS Coach and the founder of Your Realty Leverage. But today’s episode isn’t about succeeding in real estate – it’s about being the type of person who can recruit and retain amazing talent, in whatever you do, so that you can break through whatever ceiling of achievement you perceive to be in your life.


And if you didn’t hear Brindley’s first episode, Ep 78 - How Mindset, Purpose, and Relationships Can Change Your Life in 5 Years or Less, we highly recommend listening to it as well. Her journey is truly incredible.



In this episode, you will learn...

  • [4:45] How you overcome the limiting belief that you’re not ready to bring on another person
  • [17:00] What 3 things you should be looking for in an administrative support partner
  • [21:00] How to live your ONE Thing when you are working in an administrative or support role
  • [28:20] How you can empower your support staff to live their ONE thing
  • [45:35] The importance of having a 411 with your people every week



The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

The best business owners we’ve interacted with all have the habit of constantly looking for and forming relationships with new talent – and once they’re in a relationship, it’s truly a partnership.


The ONE Thing is the language of respecting each others’ priorities. And if no one succeeds alone, then we must succeed together.


One of the biggest obstacles is your environment – so who are the five people in your environment who most need to understand this collaborative language? We suggest you share the podcast with them today. It just may make your culture that much more productive.

Ep 156 - It’s Life or Death Without Time Blocking | A True Story with Steven Gendel
46:19

What if getting your priorities done was literally a matter of life and death?

 

We know that living The ONE Thing isn’t easy. Surprisingly simple, yes – but certainly not easy. Whether you’re an employee, an entrepreneur, or a stay-at-home parent, there are always things that pop up and try to pull you away from your most important priorities. Most of us have the luxury of being able to accept that and try to do better tomorrow... but what if you didn’t have that opportunity?

 

That’s the reality for our guest Steven Gendel, whose son was born prematurely and weighing under two pounds. Over the past 19 years of his life, he has had 50 neurosurgeries and there isn’t a day that goes by without a moment where he almost dies. So today we have a conversation about what it looks like to not only thrive in your career but quit your corporate job to build four businesses, while every single day knowing that one of the people who matter most to you may not actually make it through the day – a situation that forces you to get extreme clarity on your priorities.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [7:10] How you can go from living to thriving, even in a dire situation
  • [10:18] What you need to do so that your businesses can grow even if you have to spend six months in a hospital
  • [30:40] Why you need to empower the people in your world (and how to do that)

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

One of the things that impress us most about Steven is that he always shows up with a smile on his face – there’s a peace about him, and you have to wonder if it’s because he wakes up every day with true clarity on what matters most.

 

Based on what you heard today, what can you start doing differently? What are the things you’re doing today that you would stop doing, at the drop of a dime, if something happened to the people who matter most to you? Are any of your so-called priorities, in reality, just distractions?

 

What’s the ONE thing that you can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary?

Ep 155 - Customer Loyalty | How Lady Gaga Turns Fans Into Fanatics with @JackieHuba
41:49

What is the ONE thing to focus on for business growth?

 

We believe that ONE thing is customer loyalty – so, as we scale our business, that means our ONE thing is engaging with people like you. So we’ve been asking ourselves, how do we form a deeper, more meaningful relationship with every single one of you so that, ultimately, you become a raving fan and get a level of mastery on the content so that you can turn around and empower the people in your world?

 

While we were asking these questions, Jay walked over to his bookshelf and pulled out a book. It was Monster Loyalty: How Lady Gaga Turns Followers Into Fanatics by today’s guest Jackie Huba, and it’s transforming the way we look at our business. So today we’re going to show you how Lady Gaga was able to build this passionate fan base and what lessons you can take and apply in your businesses.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [4:35] What is loyalty?
  • [11:35] How do you identify your one percenters?
  • [26:30] How can you can become part of the community around your business and give them something to talk about?

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

 

So, after listening to this episode, you've been armed with a foundation for growth. Now, are you willing to go on the journey to becoming a master of building customer loyalty?

 

If so, what habits do you or your business have to acquire that would make engaging those one percenters easier or unnecessary? Is it getting clear and focusing on your one percenters? Leading with your values? Building a community of those one percenters? Or generating something to talk about? Look at those four points and contrast them or compare them to what you're focusing on in your business right now. Are you focusing on the ONE thing that matters most?

 

When we look at our business, that lead domino, that if we continue to knock that down over time will lead to extraordinary results, is you.

 

If you see there is an opportunity but you’re struggling to come up with ideas for how to capitalize on it, one thing you can do first is read through Jackie’s book, Monster Loyalty, and write down 10 ways that you can implement each chapter. When you do that, you end up with this mind bank of things that you can do that will make building customer loyalty easier or unnecessary. We did this and it’s been extremely helpful.

 

And if you genuinely feel like you are one percenters for The ONE Thing, please e-mail Geoff@The1Thing.com because we're always asking, what are we doing that's actually creating that type of engagement? And we would love to have a conversation.

Ep 154 - How to Have Fierce Conversations That Can Change Your Entire Business | Susan Scott
01:08:04
If you want to live an extraordinary life, you have to master something – but it only has to be ONE thing.   For many of us, mastering the ability to communicate with other people, or connect with others, is the ONE thing that will make everything else easier or unnecessary.   Today, we sit down with someone who has mastered the art of asking great questions: Susan Scott, the author of Fierce Conversations. This episode is so meaningful for us, and we think it will mean just as much for you because Susan models a Fierce Conversation live.   If you put yourself in our shoes and answer each question honestly, you will experience how profound having Fierce Conversations can be, and what will be possible if you invite more conversations like these into your relationships.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Identify a relationship in your life that is not where you want it to be; a relationship that matters to you, and is hurting.   If the conversation IS the relationship, what do your conversations have to look like moving forward so that you can feel better about where that relationship is?   Remember, this talk doesn't have to be intense or negative – it can come from a place of love, and it can be delivered with candor and care.   In this episode you will learn...

33:03
Have you ever thought, “I just need more work-life balance?” Have you ever hustled so hard that life didn’t feel fulfilling because... well, you didn’t really have a life outside of your business?   If we fast forward to the end of our lives, will any of us think to ourselves, “I wish I just spent five more hours in the office?” No!

But we’ve been taught to be so career-focused and so driven to achieve extraordinary results that it’s easy to lose sight of what matters most.   So what is the ONE thing from this episode you can do that will make putting your family first, while also building a great business, easier or unnecessary?   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

Ep 152 - Why Purpose is The ONE Thing to Build Great Teams | New York Times Best Selling Author Don Yaeger
58:02
Why is it that some people are able to achieve extraordinary results year after year, while others work so hard without getting the results they deserve?   In this episode, we’re going to show you how ONE thing – purpose – can completely change your performance, the performance of your team, and provide everyone in your world with a greater sense of fulfillment and meaning.   To teach us why purpose is the ONE thing for building great teams and how you can go about bringing it into your everyday life, we’re talking to Don Yaeger, a nationally acclaimed inspirational speaker, longtime Associate Editor of Sports Illustrated, and author of over 30 books (eleven of which have become New York Times best sellers).   We recorded this conversation as part of our monthly ONE Thing webinar series. Every month, we feature an incredible author so that you can learn directly from them and ask questions. If you want to sign up for our next FREE monthly webinar, head over to the1thing.com/webinars.   In this episode, you will learn... [9:30] Why the 1992 USA men’s basketball team is the greatest collection of talent ever to wear the same jersey – and what you can learn from them. [16:00] Why you want a team full of patriots, not mercenaries. [26:30] The ONE thing that separates the best teams from everyone else. [27:35] What can you do to get clarity on who you’re serving and start feeling it – right now?

Ep 150 - Hal Elrod on The Miracle Morning and Doing What Matters Most
44:30
Can you imagine if all of your dreams, inspirations, and the things you wanted out of life were stripped away from you in a moment? It makes you really consider what matters most.   Our guest actually did die at the age of 20, after being hit head-on by a drunk driver at 70 MPH. After six days in a coma, he woke up only to be told he’d never walk again. Well, not only can this person walk – he’s run a 52-mile ultramarathon, built a successful business, and wrote an incredible bestselling book: The Miracle Morning. Then, after being diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia in 2016 and given a grim prognosis, he’s done the impossible again.   Today you are going to discover the story of how Hal Elrod formed a powerful morning routine that set him up for success, how the idea of a Miracle Morning has impacted the lives of over 500,000 people, and how he maintains clarity on what matters most.     In this episode, you will learn... [4:20] What The Miracle Morning is & how can it help you achieve your goals? [9:10] The lead domino that led to Hal’s success. [11:15] How you can shift from a mindset of success to a mindset of fulfillment (and why it matters). [26:55] How to align your actions with your true priorities. [30:15] What The Miracle Equation is & how it will help you achieve extraordinary results.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: If you’re listening to this show, that means you’re probably growth-minded and want more out of life, specifically as it pertains to your time. The challenge is how often are we furthering our education in something that is not our number one priority?   I love the story Hal shares about how, once he got clarity that family was truly what mattered most, he went down a road to reading and furthering his education on how to be a better father or husband before he earned the right to develop his education on running a business.   It’s so simple, but how many of us do it? Not easy – but simple. What’s the ONE simple action that you’re not taking today that, if you started taking it, would make everything else easier or unnecessary in your life?   We hope you’ll share the ONE action you’re taking with us by clicking here to leave a review in iTunes or sharing it on social media using #theONEthing.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more at halelrod.com Connect with Hal: Facebook | Twitter Join The Miracle Morning Community on Facebook Listen: Achieve Your Goal with Hal Elrod Get your own copy of Hal’s Miracle Morning books Download The Way of Life app   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

Ep 146 - Stimulating Creativity to Achieve Extraordinary Results | Todd Henry
36:33
Are you limiting the possibilities of anyone in your world?   We believe that leadership is teaching people how to think so that they can get what they need when they need it – but too often, we limit those around us, especially when it comes to creativity. However, achieving extraordinary results, even if you’re not an artist or don’t consider yourself creative, requires a level of unfettered creativity.   Todd Henry, host of The Accidental Creative, joins this episode to share how we can stop putting up these roadblocks and start allowing the people around us to do their most important – and most creative – work.     In this episode, you will learn... [6:20] How you can support your people’s creativity by helping them protect their time. [10:00] How you can maintain trust with your team (or, more accurately, avoid losing trust). [21:20] What you can do to create challenges that stimulate creativity, for yourself and your team.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Look at your normal day, look at how you have been investing your time, and ask yourself: Am I currently setting myself up to get my most important work done and create my best work?   Based on that, what’s the ONE thing you can do that will make creating extraordinary work easier or unnecessary?   You might come up with a BIG answer. If that’s the case, keep asking yourself the clarifying question – what’s the ONE thing I can do that will make achieving that easier or unnecessary – until you’ve identified a single action, a two-inch domino, that you CAN knock down every day.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more at accidentalcreative.com Connect with Todd: ToddHenry.com | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Listen to Geoff on The Accidental Creative: accidentalcreative.com/podcasts/ac/the-one-thing-with-geoff-woods Want to help us reinvent the planner?

38:53
How do you think about creating wealth… or do you even think about it?   In this episode, we reveal the mindset required to create a net worth of $20M, $100M, or even more. The people we are talking about today did not inherit their money – they just think differently about wealth creation.   To teach us about this mindset, we are talking to Richard C.

Ep 140 - Do What Matters Most & Get More Free Time | Jeff Sanders
28:15
Are you doing the same thing every day, working hard, without actually living your purpose?   Sometimes it takes something catastrophic to compel us to do something different, or to take an action that we previously didn’t have the confidence to take.   For Jeff Sanders, host of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast, it took being hospitalized for him to realize that most of the things on his calendar simply didn’t matter. Jeff completely changed the way he manages his time, and the experience prompted him write a book called The Free Time Formula. In this episode, Jeff shares how he schedules his time, how he chooses what to invest his time in, and what you can do to begin taking action today.     In this episode you will learn... [4:40] How to look at your calendar in an entirely new way. [7:00] Why you don’t need to (and shouldn’t) fill every time block on your schedule with a task. [14:10] How you can optimize your time by utilizing your strengths. [18:00] How to begin auditing your time & identifying the changes you need to make. [20:40] The ONE thing that makes everything easier or unnecessary, when it comes to acting in order of priority.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We urge you to take Jeff’s story as an opportunity to pause and reflect; if you continue to do what you have been doing, every day for five years, what will your life look like? Are you living the life you want to be living?   If you want to make a change, first look at the seven circles: your spirituality, physical health, personal life, relationships, jobs, business, and finances. Now choose just one area and ask the focusing question: What is the smallest domino that you CAN knock over that will make everything else easier or unnecessary, in your world?   Keep asking that question until the answer is something so small, so doable, that it almost seems too easy. Think big, but go small – and prove to yourself that you can knock that lead domino down today.   Links & Tools From This Episode Connect with Jeff: jeffsanders.com | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram Listen: The 5 AM Miracle Podcast Read: The Free Time Formula   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

Ep 139 - Creating Work Life Counter-Balance Requires Delegation & a Change in Mindset | Dan Quiggle
29:42
Today, we want to take you on a journey.   We host this podcast to show you new ways to live The ONE Thing at a higher level, and one of the ways that we learn best is through story, or through other people’s experiences.   Our guest, Dan Quiggle, was well on his way to building a successful business – but the number of hours he worked prevented him from doing the thing that mattered most: being a father who was present for his daughter. While you listen to Dan’s story, assess where you are in your journey: Are you striking the right work-life counterbalance for you? Are you holding onto tasks that are limiting your impact? What does it mean to show up for the people who matter most in your life?     In this episode you will learn... [2:20] Why work-life balance doesn’t exist. [6:40] How you can build a business that scales without you. [10:30] The ONE thing that separates successful people from extraordinary leaders. [14:05] How you can practice work-life presence. [19:20] What you can do to transition from work mode to family mode (and vice versa).   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: What was the ONE thing from this episode that resonated most with you?   For us, it was when Dan asked, “Who’s getting the worst of you?” Many of us consider being a parent or spouse as the more important role in our lives, but too often, we give so much energy to work that our family gets the worst of us.   So what’s the ONE thing you can do to show up as best version of yourself in the role that is most important to you? Continue to ask yourself that question until you narrow it down to one, specific, measurable activity that you CAN do.

Ep 138 - Are you Networking or NOT Working? Jordan Harbinger
52:20
Imagine each of the seven circles of your life – spirituality, physical health, personal life, relationships, your job, your business, and your finances – is a ball, and you are juggling them. What happens if you drop the relationship ball?   If you drop that ball, it breaks. We find that people often spend so much time focusing on their job, business, and finances that they, ultimately, end up neglecting their relationships, spirituality, health, and personal life.   Jordan Harbinger, titular host of The Jordan Harbinger Show, has been on a decades-long journey learning how to form powerful relationships and network in a way that brings results – as opposed to what a lot of us do, which is NOT working. In this episode, Jordan is going to share how you can really distinguish yourself and form relationships that matter.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: What is the ONE thing from this episode that will make everything else easier or unnecessary, when it comes to your relationships?   We really resonated with the idea that you need to stand out – you just have to be a little bit different. And this doesn’t even have to be a big thing! When everyone else is just clicking Like on Facebook, are you willing to actually send a text? And if you aren’t willing to do those things… are the quality of your relationships reflect of what you’re putting in?   Remember: build the well before you need to use it; bring value to other people FIRST, not expecting anything in return.   In this episode you will learn... [9:00] The 20% work that leads to 80% of results, when it comes to forming the right relationships. [16:05] How you can become the type of person who brings value to others.

Ep 137 - Don't Sacrifice Your Family For Your Business | John Lamerton
30:02
Have you ever sacrificed your family time, your health, or your spiritual life, for your career?   Today you’re going to hear about someone who fell into that trap: John Lamerton thought that getting everything he wanted required adding more things into his world, and as a result he ended up working 100 hours a week and sacrificing time with his family – until he got a massive wake-up call in the form of a newborn son.   You’re going to discover what led to John’s mindset shift, and how subtracting, simplifying, and focusing allowed him to go from working 100-hour weeks to 25-hour weeks – all while making more money, experiencing less stress, and spending more time with his family.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Our biggest takeaway from this episode is doing less – not more.   Sometimes, the things you like doing, and even the things that make you feel productive (or maybe just busy), aren’t the things that are going to make you effective – and they detract from the ONE thing that actually matters most.   What can you do, today, to get more clarity on the things that you’re currently saying yes to that you should consider saying no to? And are you willing to block out time on your calendar to figure it out – possibly even saying NO to something less important in the process?   In this episode you will learn... [7:10] How you can cut hours from your work week (while getting more done). [13:00] How you can start intentionally choosing power habits and stop accidentally falling into habits.

Ep 133 - A Purpose-Driven Company Solving a Big Problem | Andela Co-Founder & President Christina Sass
41:03
When it comes to The ONE Thing, the tip of the iceberg is your results, or your profit – but what lies underneath the surface, supporting those results?   We can’t get the right results if we don’t take the right actions, we can’t choose the right actions if we don’t know what our priorities are, and we can’t know what your priorities are if we don’t have clarity on our purpose. That’s why we’re sharing a conversation with a woman who is completely driven by purpose, and we encourage you to listen for three themes: when purpose comes into the picture, when she starts narrowing her focus, and how she moves from Entrepreneurial to Purposeful.   Christina Sass is the Co-Founder & President of Andela, which CNN called “the startup that’s harder to get into than Harvard.” They are on a mission to train 100,000 world-class software developers in Africa to bridge the divide between U.S. and African tech sectors, and it’s remarkable what they’ve been able to accomplish in just a few years.     In this episode you will learn... [8:00] How you can solve a BIG problem by focusing on ONE action. [18:30] What it looks like to narrow your focus and say no to everything else. [24:05] How you can start moving from E to P. [30:50] Why (and how) anyone can start shifting the culture in an organization. [34:50] ONE thing you can do to find more success in business.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We love what Christina says at the end of this conversation: “Purpose is a currency all on its own. Find your purpose, and the means to attack it will follow.” Are you clear about what your purpose is, or do you have a general sense of what it might be?   The path to discovering your purpose starts by getting on the path. So how much time, every week, are you intentionally pausing to think about what your purpose might be? If you invest zero time, you won’t have any clarity.   If you want to get on the path, we want to help.

But how?   To find out, we sat down to speak with Mark C. Crowley, the author of Lead from the Heart: Transformational Leadership for the 21st Century.     In this episode you will learn... [6:10] The science behind why leading from the heart is so successful in business. [10:00] What you can do to bring more caring into your leadership. [17:00] The ONE thing you can do to create hockey stick-shaped growth in your leadership ability.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Who are the people in your life that you really care about? Do you have clarity – real clarity – on why they’re doing what they’re doing, and what they’re working towards?   If the answer to that question is no, how much time do you think it would take to ask them and find out? And what would become possible if you ask everyone you care about (which should include everyone you manage) that question?   We think asking that question is the lead domino that will allow you to unleash exponential growth in your leadership ability.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more at leadfromtheheart.com Connect with Mark: Facebook | Twitter | LinkedIn Read: Lead from the Heart: Transformational Leadership for the 21st Century Click here to leave a review on iTunes   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

26:49
When you go to social events, are you networking or are you not working?   We’ve been there – going to networking events and masterminds without really getting or giving any value in the experiences that we share with others. But with a little bit of knowledge, we can stop wasting time and start networking with purpose.   To help us, we sit down with a human behavior expert: Vanessa Van Edwards, the lead investigator at her research lab, Science of People, and the bestselling author of Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People.   In this episode you will learn...

[19:40] The ONE thing you can do right now to develop more meaningful relationships.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We love what Vanessa said about being a highlighter – when you introduce one person to another person, and you really rave about what makes them exceptional, it leaves a lasting impression. And when you make this a habit, it forces you to listen more intently because, if you know you will have to recall information about them, you will listen with purpose.   What is the ONE thing from this episode that made the biggest impression on you?   We really want to know.

Trevor invited Geoff onto his show, but then we ended up turning the tables to ask questions about how he can start being more present.   As you listen to the episode, ask yourself the same questions that Geoff poses to Trevor – and consider the cost of choosing not to.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Are you happy with the habits that you’ve formed over the past 12 months? Have you formed any bad habits, unintentionally?   We end up doing activities that we know aren’t our ONE thing, every single day, and the end result is failing so slowly that we think we’re succeeding. And over time, if you continue to fail a little every day, there will be an extraordinary loss.   So what is the ONE activity you can do today to start changing it?

Every single person in the world has the same number of hours in their day… so what makes the difference between average results and extraordinary results?   We believe it all comes down to how you set goals; the clarity that you have on the vision for your life.   That’s why we’re sharing this keynote presentation by Jay Papasan and Geoff Woods, in which we’ll walk you through our process for setting goals. This episode focuses on goal-setting fundamentals, and in the next episode we’ll walk you through how we applied these models and systems for our specific goals.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: If you have a significant other, are you bringing them along your goal setting journey? Are you setting your goals with them, or are you doing it independently?   If you are goal setting alone, you are missing a massive opportunity. Ask for help.   We held a couples goal setting retreat last year, and it was massively impactful for everyone who attended. That’s why we’re going to do it again in November 2018, and you can sign up for the waitlist at the1thing.com/event.   In this episode you will learn... [10:00] Why you need to put more time into goal setting if you want more clarity. [19:20] What you need to ask yourself to begin goal setting to the now. [23:40] Why effective goal setting isn’t usually a solo activity.   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

Ep 126 - Keep More of What You Make, Achieve Financial Freedom, & Live a 5-Day Weekend | Nik Halik & Garrett Gunderson
58:42
Do you wake up every single day to trade your life for your job? If so… are you getting the good end of that deal?   If you ever want to achieve extraordinary results and true wealth, you will have to change your actions – and to accomplish that, you will have to transform the way you think.   To help us accomplish that mindset transformation, we’re talking to Nik Halik and Garrett Gunderson, the co-authors of 5 Day Weekend: Freedom to Make Your Life and Work Rich with Purpose. We were first introduced to Nik and Garrett because 5 Day Weekend is the newest book published by Ray Bard, publisher of The ONE Thing, who only publishes one book every year (obviously, he has an incredible track record).   We recorded this conversation as part of our monthly ONE Thing webinar series. Every month, we feature an incredible author so that you can learn directly from them and ask questions. If you want to sign up for our next FREE monthly webinar, head over to the1thing.com/webinars.   In this episode you will learn... [8:30] Why your current financial situation does not dictate your future wealth. [15:15] The five steps of the 5 Day Weekend. [20:50] ONE thing you can do to transform your financial life. [31:00] The limiting beliefs that we tell ourselves about generating wealth (and why they’re not true). [34:50] Why you’re only ever ONE idea or ONE relationship away from the next level of prosperity. [39:00] How you can invest $5,000, today, and get a good return on your investment. [42:10] Why you and your significant other should have ONE meeting, every week, about your shared vision (check out Garrett’s weekly agenda at freedomfasttrack.com/marriage).   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Stop making excuses about why you are not taking action to achieve financial freedom – the first step is to keep more of what you’re making right now.   Look at where your money is going and identify what expenses you can cut, and only after that should you start looking at how to generate more money.   If you trust the domino effect, keep your lifestyle where it is, and trust the 5 Day Weekend model, your passive income will rise over time – until you can wake up and choose what to do every single day.

Ep 125 - Quit Complicating Things! Discover the Easy Way to Build Systems & Scale Your Business | Jenny McCarty
29:20
Do you ever feel like you are juggling so many different tasks that, inevitably, some things end up slipping through the cracks?   We’ve definitely experienced that in our business, and so has our guest Jenny McCarty. Jenny is a business owner, a member of our Living Your ONE Thing community, and a military wife, which means she is constantly moving – and every time she moves, she has to start her business all over again.   This is because Jenny has been acting entrepreneurially, relying on her own natural abilities, instead of acting purposefully. She reached out to us for help before her next move, and we want to share that call because we think it can help you too. In this episode, we ask questions that will help you identify the models and systems that you can implement so that your business can scale without you.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: As people, we tend to over complicate things. We make our problems feel difficult, but in reality, it doesn’t have to be that way. Your life, and your business, can be simple – and the simpler it is, the easier it will be to scale.   And building systems doesn’t actually have to take a lot of time. With a little bit of technology – and the intention to document everything – you can record every step of your process and then leverage VA resources to turn that into a system.   If you’d like to see how we do this, we will be sharing our process in a training for the Living Your ONE Thing Community. Click here to join today.   In this episode you will learn... [12:10] Why documenting your systems is a powerful lead domino. [16:10] What habits you can acquire to help you develop systems in your business. [22:00] How you can stop over complicating simple problems.   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

Ep 124 - Superconnector: Stop Networking & Start Building Relationships that Matter | Scott Gerber
37:30
When you start a new relationship, do you show up looking to give or get?   Many entrepreneurs show up trying to leverage every situation, but we only start receiving the most value when we start offering it. Superconnectors are the people who create value by making connections for other people because, in every interaction and new relationship, they show up looking to give, not get.   Scott Gerber started the Young Entrepreneurs Council, founded The Community Company, and wrote the book Superconnector. In this episode, he shares how you can transform your mindset, be more meaningful and purposeful in every interaction, and start building relationships that really matter.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: What’s the ONE thing in this episode that will help you stop networking, and start forming real relationships that matter?   When you find your answer, let us know in a review on iTunes, or wherever you get your podcasts. We see every single review, and we want to know what helped you.   In this episode you will learn... [3:50] How becoming a Superconnector can knock over more dominoes in your life. [6:00] The ONE thing that will allow you to form connections with people who are where you want to be. [8:30] Why facilitating great experiences adds more value than showing up to network. [10:20] What becomes possible when you develop a connector’s mind. [16:30] ONE simple strategy you can use to audit your mindset and behaviors. [22:30] What models and systems you can follow to ensure that you are nurturing the relationships that matter most.

35:17
Today we are getting raw and vulnerable with all of you.   In our conversations with all of you, we've learned that many of you are making excuses for your results – and in reality, the ONE thing you're failing to do is look in the mirror and accept accountability.   JT McCormick had an unfortunate childhood – it's hard for many of us to fathom growing up in his shoes – but in spite of his tumultuous start in life, he has managed to achieve an extraordinary level of success. Sometimes we lack the perspective to look at our situation and find gratitude, and as a result, we end up making excuses, but JT is here to serve us all a big helping of Perspective Pie.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We can all make the CHOICE to achieve more – it just requires a simple mindset shift and some elbow grease. In this conversation, you'll hear when JT chose to be the best at everything he did, even scrubbing toilets.   So we have a question for you: Are you doing the best that you can do, or are you doing the best that can be done?   What is the ONE thing you can do to show up as the best in business, family, or wherever is most important to you – and where in your life are you making excuses when you could be getting results?   In this episode you will learn... [17:40] The only three things you need to achieve success. [21:10] What you need to know if you feel stuck against the ceiling of achievement.

Ep 122 - Adam Grant | Work Doesn't Have to Suck, Find Fulfillment in What You Do
01:01:29
We spend 25% of our life, if not more, at work – and many of our workplaces are broken; we lack fulfillment.   We lack control, we lack clarity on where we are going, and too many of us don't feel like we're waking up every day to trade our lives for something of value. If that's a problem for you, you're in the right place.   Today's guest is going to help you get clarity on ONE thing that will help you find more fulfillment.

Our questions for you is, what is the ONE thing that you're not doing that would allow you to find more fulfillment in what you do?   Consider where in your life you are treating everything like it matters equally. Where are you going BIG and trying to do everything where you could be going small, focusing on the unique area where you can truly make the greatest impact and enjoy the greatest results?   In this episode you will learn... [6:00] The 3 things you need to get motivated at work. [13:00] Why top performers are willing to experiment.

Ep 121 - Mastering Your Mind & Being Present | Jeff Photiades
31:00
Do you struggle with being present?   We talk a lot about achieving extraordinary results, setting goals, and gaining clarity on your priorities.... but one thing that we don't often talk about as much is mastering our mindset. So many of us are constantly thinking about the next thing that we have to do or something that's already happened, and as a result, we're never really in the moment.   If you are always living in the future or the past, then being present may be ONE thing that can transform every area of your life. Jeff Photiades joins the show to share how he started getting more intentional around his mindset, and how you can too.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: If you were able to, at any time, be truly present and nowhere else, would that ONE thing improve every area of your life?   We think it will, and we believe practicing meditation will help you accomplish that. If you don't have a meditation practice already in place, we challenge you to start one. Even if it starts with just one breath a day, that is ONE thing that can make being present easier or unnecessary.   Download yourself a free 66-Day Challenge Calendar to start today.   In this episode you will learn... [3:00] How developing a better understanding of yourself helps you understand others. [7:15] What it looks like when you apply the principles of goal setting to your personal life. [12:15] Why the story you tell yourself about having to work more isn't always true. [14:30] What you can do if you are struggling to strike a good work-life counterbalance.

Do you talk to the people you care about, especially if you’re a parent, about what their goals are and how they can achieve them?   In episode 117, we heard the story of Holli and Cade McCray, a mother and son who started living The ONE Thing together. In this episode, we're talking to another mother-and-son duo: Nicole and Cooper Hefferman.   Cooper is now living his ONE thing, using principles from the book to create a plan and, ultimately, get to Broadway in the next year – and it all started when Nicole picked up a copy of The ONE Thing in an airport and started asking her son more questions about his goals.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: For you to be productive, you have to have clarity on your priorities. And for you to have clarity on your priorities, you need to have an understanding of what your purpose is.

You bring a lot of intention, energy, and focus to your professional world – are you bringing that same focus to your relationships at home?   When we don't plan healthy habits in our relationships – especially our romantic relationships – things tend to fall apart as life happens, and that starts to spill over to every other aspect of our lives.   With over 15 years of experiencing helping couples heal, reset, and thrive, relationship therapist and educator John Howard joins the show to help us be more intentional and transform our relationships.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: What is the ONE thing you can do to connect more in your relationships?   We challenge you to go a step farther than thinking about the question – Prove to yourself that you can begin to affect positive change in those relationships that matter.   If working on your relationship is important to you, schedule time for connecting on your calendar (even if it's just a long hug at the end of the workday).   In this episode you will learn... [2:30] The ONE habit that will transform your relationships. [10:00] What you are doing to create disconnection in your relationships. [16:00] How you can have (and start) the tough conversations in your relationships. [23:25] Why it's okay (and beneficial!) to be vulnerable and ask for help in your relationships.

Ep 116 - How a Stay-at-Home Mom Lives Her ONE Thing | Rachel Benson
49:47
When your ONE thing is your children, you always have more than one thing going on at any given moment, and it never feels like you're in control of your time.   While many listeners have a strong professional focus, we know that a number of you already have the hardest job in the world: being a stay-at-home parent. This show isn't about featuring big names; it's about showing what it looks like when you actually live The ONE Thing –  so today we're sharing this conversation with one of you, Rachel Benson, a stay-at-home mother of three who also has responsibilities supporting her husband's business.   For years Rachel has struggled to balance it all, but in this episode, we offer some guidance. Last week Geoff shared a live coaching call between himself and Tony DiCello, and we learned how a coach helps you amplify accountability – now Geoff is putting those lessons into action.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We love this conversation because Rachel is thinking what all of us are thinking – but she has the confidence to say it out loud, enlist support, and commit to taking actions that will change her results.   You have to get started.   So out of everything discussed in this episode, what is the ONE thing that you can do differently – and will you commit to doing it?   In this episode you will learn...

Ep 114 - Enriching the Relationships that Matter Most
20:35
Why are you doing what you are doing?   The ONE Thing is about teaching the surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results, but many of us fail to ask ourselves that simple question. For many of us, we do what we do to create moments that matter with the people that matter... but, too often, we lose sight of these relationships.   We are dedicating the entire month of February, in our Living Your ONE Thing Community, to creating extraordinary relationships in four specific areas: wealth determiners, loved ones, friends, and mentors. This episode will give you a taste of that, because whether you're a member or not we want you to understand the journey that we're going on so that you can go on it as well.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: If you can only choose one area discussed in this episode to focus on – relationships with wealth determiners, loved ones, friends, or mentors – which do you need to focus on most?   Then, what is the ONE relationship that you can form or enrich that will make everything else easier or unnecessary for you?   If you'd like us to be there as your accountability partner along the way, go to the1thing.com/membership.   In this episode you will learn... [3:40] What questions you should ask yourself about your relationship with the people who determine your wealth and the people whose wealth you determine. [8:30] ONE thing you can do to focus more on the relationships with your loved ones. [12:20] Why you should stop acting like an entrepreneur when it comes to managing your friendships and start getting purposeful about it. [15:00] How to nurture relationships with your mentors and coaches. [17:40] How you can decide what ONE relationship needs your focus now.   Links & Tools From This Episode If you'd like to join us for support on your journey, go to the1thing.com/membership or text the word ACCOUNTABILITY to the number 33444.

Ep 113 - Why Everything You Know About Success is (Mostly) Wrong | Eric Barker
01:00:04
Life offers so much – but time is limited, so every day you have to wake up and make choices.   Unfortunately, many of us choose to try to do it all. We have massive ambitions and take massive action but, at the end of the day, we don't feel like we actually got anything done.   Instead of trying to go wide, we have the opportunity to go deep; to be selective about what we choose to learn, have, and do. To help you take advantage of that opportunity, we are sharing this conversation with Eric Barker, author of Barking Up the Wrong Tree: The Surprising Science Behind Why Everything You Know About Success Is (Mostly) Wrong.   We recorded this conversation as part of our monthly ONE Thing webinar series. Every month, we feature an incredible author so that you can learn directly from them and ask questions. If you want to sign up for our next FREE monthly webinar, head over to the1thing.com/webinars.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Think about a time in your life when you didn't feel fulfilled in your professional life, and you decided to move on.   Was it because one of the four key factors of success was missing? Happiness Achievement Significance Legacy   When you reflect on where you are today, how are you doing in those four areas? What can you do differently?   In this episode you will learn... [5:20] What the 4 key factors of success are. [26:25] How you can strategically utilize failure to improve your life by using "little bets."

Ep 112 - Transforming Relationships By Solving the Real Problem - with Dr. Matt Townsend
31:47
When in your life were you trained how to communicate with the people who matter most to you?   Many of us have never received this kind of training or received it far too late in life – yet, almost all of us have experienced some kind of conflict in our long-term relationships (whether that be with a significant other, business partner, boss, or employee).   That's why we're sharing this conversation with Dr. Matt Townsend, author, radio host, and relationship expert, who will teach you how to transform the relationships that matter most to you by cutting through the smoke to solve the real problems at hand.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: What's one relationship that really matters to you – and, if you're honest with yourself, is hurting?   Are you showing up in those interactions genuinely caring about the other person first, before considering your agenda?   Based on that answer, what is the ONE thing you can do that will allow you to show that person that you care, and make them feel cared for?   In this episode you will learn... [5:30] How you can start training in communication skills for relationships. [8:40] How you can recognize the smoke (or the pattern) and start identifying what the real fire in your relationships are. [12:00] The 7 basic needs that need to be met in every interaction with another human (S.T.A.R.V.E.D.). [16:30] Why it's important to show up in your relationships with no agenda, prepared to be there and nowhere else (especially on a S.T.A.R.V.E.D. issue).

Ep 111 - How to Invest in Real Estate Using The ONE Thing | Joseph Gozlan
25:40
Gary Keller once said that the definition of a wealthy person is someone who has the passive income to fund their life's purpose.   Based on that definition, we have to do two things to live a wealthy life: find our purpose, and then build a business that can fund it passively.   Does building that kind of business sound far-fetched? Well, Joseph Gozlan joins us today to show you why it's not. This is an incredible case study of how someone just like you found clarity on their purpose and then boiled that down to the ONE thing he needed to achieve extraordinary results.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Your purpose determines your priorities, your priorities determine your productivity, and your productivity determines your results.   So how can you get clear on the type of impact that you want to make, and what type of business will you have to build to fund that impact?   Based on your answers to those questions, go through the goal setting to now exercise. You can find this exercise in our FREE My Purpose Handbook at the1thing.com/mypurpose.   In this episode you will learn... [4:00] How you can get clarity on your purpose. [12:55] What you can do to protect your time (because, inevitably, life will try to get in the way).

24:16
After reading The ONE Thing, have you struggled to prioritize and implement it?   You're not alone. One of the most common concerns we hear from people who have read the book is that they love the idea, but they struggle to find their ONE thing, and then do it before anything else.   Today we're sharing a wake-up call: the incredible story of Tammy Verduzco, who found her ONE thing and then took action – despite being laid up in the hospital after massive complications with surgery. If she can do it, you can do it too... if you stop making excuses.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Tammy reminds us that if you don't find and stick to Your ONE Thing, the only person you're letting down is yourself... and why would you want to do that?   We all have baggage, we all have problems, and we all have the same opportunity to create an extraordinary life.

Ep 108 - What You Can Learn About Living Life From People Who Are Fighting For It | Jon Vroman
30:32
If you ask Gary Keller what inspired him to write The ONE Thing, he will tell you that it's about living a life of no regret. How can we make the most out of our limited time here on Earth, and live a life that is extraordinary?   We believe that living a life without regret really comes down to making moments that matter.   Today's guest, Jon Vroman, was inspired by this idea. He founded the Front Row Foundation and wrote the #1 bestselling book The Front Row Factor, and he has dedicated the rest of his life to helping others, especially people who are fighting for their lives, create moments that matter.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Many of us tell ourselves the story that we can't do something because we imagine the person we were yesterday and not the person we are today – or who we will be tomorrow.   We believe that you can achieve far more than you believe is possible if you are willing to help raise other people up.   So out of everything that you heard in this episode, what is the ONE thing you can do that will allow you to help others create moments that matter?   In this episode you will learn... [7:00] How you can start experiencing moments that matter every single day. [14:50] The difference between wishful thinking and hope (and why hope is so powerful). [21:40] How you can make moments that matter for yourself – and others.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more about the Front Row Foundation Read: The Front Row Factor: Transform Your Life with The Art of Moment Making Listen: The Front Row Factor podcast --   Production & Development for The ONE Thing Podcast by Podcast Masters

Ep 105 - Coaching People to Their Possibilities | Gene Rivers
48:32
If you are hitting a ceiling of achievement in your life, then you are missing a person – either in the form of a mentor or leverage.   Today we are focusing on the leverage side; the people who can take things off of your plate so that you can focus on the 20% work that will allow you to achieve extraordinary results.   In episode 50, we talked to today's guest, Gene Rivers, about how he and his wife run nine successful businesses, while still finding time to vacation four months out of the year and devote time to their family every day. Gene is only able to do this because he leverages the people around him and coaches them to achieve more – and today he shares how you can do that too.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: After you listen to the episode, take a moment to reflect on these questions:   – What are you currently doing that's helping your people achieve their life goals – and what are you doing that's stopping your people from achieving their goals?   – Many of us want to be liked, and because of that, we avoid tough conversations that should happen with the people in our world. Are you contributing to their goals, or are you contaminating them by allowing them to remain in your world when it's not the right fit?   – Are you clear on what the standards for performance in your organization are? Are you bringing focus and accountability to the actions and metrics that need to be completed to achieve the goal?   – Finally, what is the ONE thing you can do that will allow you to show up as a better leader and coach your people to their possibilities?   In this episode you will learn... [7:50] Why you need empire builders to your team (and how you can identify them). [15:25] How you can leverage a weekly checkup to create more accountability. [28:30] How you can set everyone in your team up for success (and how you can help people who aren't succeeding).   Links & Tools From This Episode Connect with Gene at GeneRivers.info Do you want a model for weekly accountability?

Many of you have asked us the same question: How do I teach the principles from The ONE Thing to my kids?   We want to teach our kids how to focus, set goals, and think so that they can get what they need when they need it, but this stuff isn't taught in schools... or is it?   Laura Sandefer and her husband co-founded The Acton Academy.

Ep 94 - Why You're Harming Your Most Valuable Relationships | Lewis Howes
01:03:52
Everyone has at least one person who truly matters to them... and many of us are doing ONE thing that is harming that relationship.   In The ONE Thing, Gary and Jay lay out the seven most important areas of your life: spirituality, physical health, personal, relationships, job, business, and finances. We often set goals around our jobs, businesses, and finances... but those are rubber balls, and if we drop them they can bounce back. Spirituality, physical health, personal life, and relationships are glass balls – if you drop one of them, it will shatter.   Lewis Howes is the New York Times Bestselling author of The School of Greatness and The Mask of Masculinity, and he joins the show to share why you are hurting your most valuable relationships and the ONE thing you can do to turn it all around.   We recorded this conversation as part of our monthly ONE Thing webinar series.

Ep 93 - Forming Powerful Relationships & Overcoming the Limiting Beliefs Stopping You | Steve Sims
01:03:16
Do you wake up every single day intentionally adding value to specific relationships?   Too many of us take our relationships for granted, and we aren't approaching our relationships with a strategy – but nurturing the relationships that matter most is an under-appreciated and transformative power habit.   Steve Sims has built a legacy out of forming relationships at a very high level. He is the author of Bluefishing: The Art of Making Things Happen and the Founder of Bluefish, a concierge service for the elite of the elite. If you want to visit the Titanic, get married by the Pope, or have dinner at the footsteps of Michelangelo's David while being serenaded by Andrea Bocelli, Steve is the man who can make it happen – and he can do that because of the relationships he has formed.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We want you to think intentionally about the people in your life. Write down a list of everyone you like, and if you write down a name that you actually don't like you will feel it in your gut. Put a star next to that person.   Then ask yourself a few questions about that person:   – What role do they serve (if they serve one at all)? – What should that relationship look like moving forward? Maybe there shouldn't be a relationship at all. – What's the ONE thing you can do, such that by doing it, will allow you to shift that relationship?   Have this conversation with yourself and take action – because, truly, you cannot afford not to.   In this episode you will learn... [15:00] How you can overcome limiting beliefs (and why your limiting beliefs keep Steve in business). [18:20] ONE simple strategy you can use to approach anyone and set yourself apart. [32:30] Why the most successful individuals are usually looking for mentees (especially entrepreneurs). [38:15] How you can use The Chug Test to assess your relationships and remove people who shouldn't be in your life.

Ep 86 - The #1 Mistake People Make Scaling Their Business & Hacking Growth | Sean Ellis
45:03
So many people trying to grow a successful business create a product, try to sell it, and then focus on scaling... but they're making a massive mistake.   We made this same mistake in our business, too, for at least a year. Then we heard about the book Hacking Growth, and it changed the way we thought about marketing.   Sean Ellis is the author of Hacking Growth, and he was responsible for scaling businesses like DropBox, EventBrite, and LogMeIn – and those companies achieved tremendous levels of success because they did ONE thing differently.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We challenge you to run a survey that helps you understand WHO your must-have users are and WHY they consider your product a must-have.   The first question: How would you feel if you could no longer use ? They can answer Disappointed, Somewhat Disappointed, Not Disappointed, or Not Applicable (I no longer use it).   The follow-up question: What is the primary benefit that you have gotten from this product?   In this episode you will learn... [1:40] What "hacking growth" really looks like. [5:45] How Sean improved the usage rate of a product by 1000% in just four months (and the unexpected way that affected company growth). [9:20] What it means to create a "must-have" product. [13:20] How to identify whether or not your product is considered a "must-have" (and then leverage that data). [19:00] How you can foster more love for a product. [24:30] How to hone in on your most beneficial product features (and why it is important). [35:00] The ONE metric you need to figure out.   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU! Form your first power habit with your 66 Day Challenge Calendar Check out our awesome blog!

Gary Keller says that you’re never more than five years away from where you want to be – if you intentionally surround yourself with the right people, follow proven models and systems, and implement the guidance given to you, you are no more than five years from that seemingly-impossible life.

A business isn't just something that makes money, helps customers, or delivers value – it's a vehicle for you to live a BIG life and finance your life's purpose.

Babak Azad is the former Senior Vice President of Media and Acquisition at Beach Body, creators of P90X, Insanity, and Shakeology.

You can start by considering the following questions: What is the experience your customers want and prefer? How can you create a great experience for them? Living The ONE Thing is a lifelong journey, and the goal is not to be perfect. You're a human, and you're likely going to fail... but will you get back on the horse, move forward, and try to do better the next day?   In this episode you will learn...

Ep. 68 - Developing a World Class Mindset with Emotional Agility | Dr. Susan David
54:52
What does it take internally to thrive? Psychologists understand that the way in which we navigate our inner world drives every aspect of how we love, live, and lead... but it can be difficult for us to reflect inward and navigate our everyday thoughts, emotions, and self-talk because no one ever taught us how. Our guest, Dr. Susan David, is a clinical psychologist and author of the best-selling book, Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life. We're sharing this conversation as a crash course to help you start developing emotional agility and thriving internally. We recorded this conversation as part of our monthly ONE Thing webinar series. Every month, we feature an incredible author so that you can learn directly from them and ask questions. If you want to sign up for our next FREE monthly webinar, head over to the1thing.com/webinars.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: You can start having a more effective relationship with your emotions today, and you may be surprised at how powerful an effect this simple shift may have. Step One: Distance yourself from an emotion you're holding onto by saying, "I notice I feel _____." Step Two: Ask yourself: What is the bigger value that lies underneath that is provoking these emotions? The moment you acknowledge what the underlying value is, the emotions dissipate. Let us know the ONE thing you take action on from this episode by emailing us or sharing it with us on Facebook.   In this episode you will learn... [3:10] How Emotional Agility allows you to learn from your emotions. [6:15] Why you shouldn't treat your emotions or thoughts as directions. [12:40] How you can bring more focus and transparency to the emotions that you feel, and handle them appropriately. [17:55] Why discomfort is the price of admission for a meaningful life. [23:10] How you can begin making value-based decisions (and what happens when you don't live in alignment with your values). [33:55] How to set goals based on what you have to do, and not what you want. You can take Susan's free Emotional Agility quiz for help thinking of values in the context of your emotional agility.

Over five years went into researching and writing The ONE Thing, and one of the things we discovered was that, on average, it takes 66 days to form a habit.

Today you have the opportunity to intentionally decide which habits you will form, and narrow your focus to the ONE you want to acquire first.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We hope you'll celebrate episode 66 with us by picking just ONE of the three power habits we described and starting your own 66 Day Challenge.

Ep. 57 - Your Path to Purpose with Brian Schoenbaum
34:41
Many of the members of our Living Your ONE Thing community have asked the same question: How do I discover my purpose? So many people asked us that we decided to sit down with Brian Schoenbaum, Founder & CEO of Vuka Collective, to create an exclusive training video for the ONE thing community. We talked to Brian because he operates on another level and a single purpose drives everything he does: helping people wake up in their personal and professional lives.   We're sharing the audio from that training here because we want you to understand what we're doing for members of our community and consider if it is a good fit for you. If it is, you can go to the1thing.com/membership and try your first week for only $1.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Jay Papasan once said, "The path to discovering your purpose begins with getting on the path." Finding your purpose is not a result of following certain steps in order. It is about pausing and finding the space to ask questions: When I walk into a room, what is the positive energy that other people experience? What is my unique genius in the world? How can I be bold? If you want to enlist support and get more training like this, you can join the Living Your ONE Thing community by going to the1thing.com/membership and signing up for a $1 trial.   In this episode you will learn... [11:15] Why going on a journey to discover your purpose is so important (and what the payoff is). [19:40] How you can begin to take action on discovering your purpose. [23:55] How to reveal (and leverage) your unique genius.   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

50:40
Are you spending too much time working in pursuit of freedom? We can't work more hours in the day and have a more flexible lifestyle – something else has to change.

He and his wife run nine successful businesses while still finding time to vacation four months out of the year and devote time to their family every day. In this episode, Gene will teach you how you can get anything you want if you're intentional with your time and willing to focus on the most important work.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: If you aren't where you want to be, or have hit a ceiling, you need accountability. Who is the mentor, coach, or consultant that you can go to for help? If you don't have someone, seek them out.

Ep. 49 - How to Find a Mentor & Improve Your Networking In Business
50:43
We've heard a lot of you reach out and ask a simple question: How do I find a mentor? Most of us realize that we can live a richer life by upgrading the five people we spend the most time with, but first, we need guidance from people who have already achieved what we want to achieve.

This conversation will help you build real relationships, improve your networking, and find a mentor that will help you achieve more.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Today, in just one interaction, approach someone with the intention of being more interested in them than trying to get them to think you're interesting.

[5:50] How you can build better relationships with ONE simple lesson. [9:10] Why high achievers give without expecting anything in return. [16:00] How you can make an appealing ask and avoid taking from potential mentors. [23:20] How to choose where to invest your most valuable asset – your time.

You don’t earn the right to work on your second priority until you finish your first priority. Limit the distractions in your environment. Put on headphones, block out irregular sounds, place food and drink within reach, and close anything with notifications (or just turn off your internet!).   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more about The Six Lies That Crush Your Productivity Lie #1: Everything Matters Equally Lie #2: Multitasking Lie #3: A Disciplined Life Lie #4: Willpower is Always on Will Call Lie #5: A Balanced Life Lie #6: Big is Bad   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

Ep 6 - What 794 people like you taught us about time blocking
30:55
Have you been distracted today? If we are intentional with our time, we can defeat distraction. Today’s guest, Valerie Tourangeau, is just like you. She was a fan of The ONE Thing for years, and then she finally implemented its powerful lessons. Now, she is able to dismiss the distractions and focus on her ONE thing, every day, because she is a time blocking master. Time Blocking is the act of scheduling time for yourself to do your most important tasks. It sounds simple, but most people struggle with committing time to themselves every day. Discussed in this episode: 1:45 - Valerie isn’t alone. A lot of people have said they read The ONE Thing and they love the book, but they never implemented the book. Why? 2:00 - 66 days can seem daunting, and finding a ONE thing in a world full of so many distractions seems like it won’t make the difference – but it really does. 2:30 - We say 66 days because, after five years of research, we discovered that it takes 66 full days to form a habit. 6:05 - Implementing The ONE Thing can expose a lot of your weaknesses. When Valerie went through the Time Blocking Mastery Course, what was one of the first weaknesses that popped up for her that really surprised her? 7:30 - The Halo Effect: When you do ONE thing, the right thing, it can end up knocking over many other things. 9:30 - Focusing on your ONE thing is more about momentum and less about being perfect. Tell us more about that. 11:30 - What are some of the biggest mistakes that people make when they first try to time block? 15:15 - What has shifted in Valerie’s life because of time blocking? 22:20 - We should be able to walk away from this episode and be able to take action and implement one simple thing that will actually give us a win in our lives. What would Valerie suggest we do? If you want to make a greater commitment to yourself, download our free 66-Day Calendar and start your own 66-Day Challenge today.

Ep 4. Would this turn your world upside down?
22:07
If you are reading this, then I know a lot about you. You are a high achiever. You have massive goals and aspirations. You are unwavering in your commitment to accomplishing your goals. I'm the same way. When we have massive dreams, we tend to look for the fastest way to get there and run. The thing we usually don't do is ask the most important question: am I truly building something that can scale with or without me? If you want to build a brand that can scale, grow, live, breathe and thrive with or without you, then you need clarity about the ONE thing that will make everything else easier or unnecessary. Focus on accomplishing that ONE thing and say no to everything else because you haven't earned the right to focus on anything else yet – this is the surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results. Now you have the knowledge. Time to back it up with action. Take a look at all of the things you do throughout the day. How much of your daily schedule directly supports you accomplishing your ONE thing? If you don't think you're investing enough time in your top priority, then how can you make a change?   Go to Facebook.com/theonethingbook and share with us.

Ep 3 – How habit and discipline helped Chris Heller become CEO of Keller Williams
20:51
Time is your most valuable asset. Are you wasting it? Chris Heller, CEO of Keller-Williams, rose to the top through discipline – a muscle that you need to develop to make the most out of your time. You develop discipline by creating better habits. Chris created habits that improved his mindset and maintained his health. Mindset is critical for overcoming fear and taking action. One of the most important mindset shifts that Chris made as part of KW was learning to succeed through others. When you have the right people, the fear of losing control transforms into relief.   Even with support, you can’t achieve everything you want to accomplish in your life and your business if you’re health isn’t close to 100%. You can’t let your health fall through the cracks when you are focusing on your business. If you want to achieve more, while working less, then you need the right habits to develop your discipline muscle. Chris Heller is here to show you how.   Discussed in this episode: 2:45 - How does Chris teach people to control their calendar? 6:45 - Everybody inside the real estate world knows that lead generation is the ONE thing that makes everything else easier or unnecessary, but why is it so hard for them to do it? 10:25 - When you focus on your business, it’s easy for your health to fall through the cracks. How did Chris make health a habit? 14:40 - The idea of succeeding through others: is it something that came naturally to Chris or is it something he had to work at? 15:55 - People hear they should succeed through others, they know they should succeed through others, yet for some reason there’s something that holds them back. If you could give them ONE thing to help them pave that way, what does that look like? 17:10 - How did Chris become the type of person that talent wants to work for, and are willing to take a discount to do it?   CONTEST -  Get a FREE digital copy of the bestselling book The ONE Thing!
