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

September 03, 2018 • 46m

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?   If you want some support in answering those questions, head over to the1thing.com/event to sign up for The ONE Thing Couples Goal Setting Retreat (Nov. 17-18, 2018 in Austin, TX).   Links & Tools From This Episode Connect with Steven: Twitter | Facebook   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

The question is, how do you go from where you are today to extraordinary? We’ve learned that you have to commit to surrounding myself with people who are where you want to be, which is why we are excited to share an event called Relentless MV.   If you’re looking to get in a room with world-class motivators who can help you gain the mental edge to push yourself to the next level and maximize your potential, you should consider joining Geoff in Martha’s Vineyard September 28th - 30th.   And you can use code “the1thing” to get $500 off your ticket at relentlessMV.com!   Come join us at this year’s Couples Goal Setting Retreat!   The ONE Thing Couples Goal Setting Retreat is more than an inspirational conference.

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

September 17, 2018 • 31m

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. 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... [3:45] How you can leverage the compound effect of getting just 1% better every day. [10:05] ONE thing you can do to make forming good habits easier or unnecessary. [16:40] When you fall off the habit wagon, do you have to start over? [20:35] How you can utilize habits as an entry point to positive rituals & routines. The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: What is that two-inch domino you CAN knock down that will help you form a power habit? Sure, putting on your shoes and going out the door will not give you washboard abs – but does it make going for a run easier? It sure does!  And if you set yourself up for success by focusing on that ONE, small, two-minute action, then you will start experiencing the cumulative benefits of getting just 1% better every day.

Want to look smart for a great price? Back when Gary Keller and Jay Papasan started writing The ONE Thing, they asked, “What do we stand for?” They decided that, whatever they created, the bar for quality would be exceptionally high and whoever invested in it would receive incredible value. We still have that standard in our business, and we are always looking for other companies doing the same thing. In our search, we came across Beckett Simonon, a direct-to-consumer brand changing the way premium men’s shoes, bags, and belts are offered.

Ep. 223 - Habits & Sobriety | with Grace Vroom

January 06, 2020 • 35m

If you want to change your life, you have to get honest with yourself. What’s working? What isn’t working? Who’s bringing you forward and who’s bringing you back? Candid self-reflection can reveal things you wish weren’t there, but knowing what you’re dealing with makes big change possible. Our guest, Grace Vroom, knew something had to give; there were countless areas of her life that she wanted to improve, but it was only after getting honest about her addiction to alcohol that she started to make any progress. Sobriety felt like such a daunting must-do on Grace’s self-improvement to-do list that she didn’t know how to start and she didn’t think she could sustain it. As you listen to this episode, we challenge you to pay close attention to what her lead domino was — it was so small that it might surprise you.   The Living Your ONE Thing community is kicking off 2020 with a community-wide 66-day challenge. If you want to form a power habit that sticks, you can start for FREE at the1thing.com/community.   In this episode, you will learn... -[4:30] What the lead domino for change might look like in your life -[9:30] Why your lead domino might not be what you expect it to be -[17:00] How to create a habit of connecting with people -[23:40] How to trust in the domino effect -[31:15] ONE thing you can do to start your journey towards sobriety   Links & Tools From This Episode -Learn more at www.gracevroom.com -Join the exclusive Living Your ONE Thing 66-Day Challenge at the1thing.com/community -Download your 66-day calendar   --   Do you run a small business? Small business owners wear a lot of hats. Some of those hats feel incredible to wear. However, filing taxes and running payroll... well, for most of us, they don’t feel great and they’re not our ONE thing. That’s where Gusto comes in to help you make payroll, taxes, and HR easy. So ask yourself, it time to take off some of your hats?   You can get three FREE months when you run your first payroll at Gusto.com/ONE.

Ep 100 - How to Have Fierce Conversations That Can Change Your Entire Business | Susan Scott

December 18, 2017 • 64m

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... [12:30] What the 4 goals of a Fierce Conversation are. [19:00] ONE thing that many business owners are doing that ruins their businesses (and their relationships).

Ep 211 - ONE Year After Setting Goals Together, This Happened | Jake & Alyx Dreyfuss

October 14, 2019 • 41m

No one succeeds alone — yet, most people try to.   One of the biggest mistakes we see people making is that they set goals by themselves, and then they struggle throughout the year because the people who are in their life — the people who have to buy into their goals if they want to accomplish them — aren’t on the same page.   That’s why we created The ONE Thing Couple’s Goal-Setting Retreat, modeling an exercise that Jay and Wendy Papasan have been doing for the past decade. The point isn’t to negotiate for whose goals are right, but for each person to understand what the other person’s goals are and how they can support the other person in achieving those goals. In this episode, we’re going to look at what happens when a couple, for the first time, sets their goals together. The results are pretty amazing, but here’s the best part: you can do it too.   If you want to put the ideas discussed in this episode into action, consider joining us at our Goal-Setting Retreat. And if you can’t make it to Austin this year, we’ll help you host your own retreat with the Kick Ass Guide® to Your Couples Goal Setting Retreat and the Goal Setting Retreat Master Course.   In this episode, you will learn... [13:20] How you know when you aren’t on the same page with the people close to you. [17:50] What has surprised Jake & Alyx since their goal-setting retreat. [25:40] Why you should set goals with not just your significant other, but also your business partner and/or team. [29:10] What you should avoid when you’re setting goals. [30:00] How to set goals when you aren’t a natural goal setter (and why you should).   Links & Tools From This Episode Join us at our Goal-Setting Retreat (Nov. 9th & 10th in Austin, TX): the1thing.com/event.  Download the FREE Kick Ass Guide® to Your Couples Goal Setting Retreat  We’ll help you facilitate a retreat with the Goal Setting Retreat Master Course   --   Are you thinking of making a big life change?   Whether you’re thinking of switching jobs, investing in your personal development, or making a big move in your personal life, a lot can come up to stop you — the uncertainty, the cost, the fear, and not knowing where to start. If you’ve been waiting for a sign that it’s time for the next big thing in your life, say hello to Thinkful, a tech bootcamp focused around your success. You can launch a career completely online with the full support of a mentor, career coaches, and a network based in your local area.   If you’re ready to join the world’s next workforce, head to thinkful.com/theONEthing to learn more.   --   Do you run a small business?   Small business owners wear a lot of hats.

Ep 203 - Accountability Series (Part 3) - Why a Coach Can Change Everything

August 19, 2019 • 67m

What does it mean to have accountability in your life? Because there are different levels of accountability. We can hold ourselves accountable by using tools like a 411, 66-Day Challenge, or The ONE Thing Planner. We can bring accountability into our world by recruiting an accountability partner. Then, when we want the highest level of accountability possible, we have to look to an expert – to a coach. A lot of people ask us what it means to have a coach, how to know if it’s the right fit, and how to get the most out of that relationship. So, today, we sit down to learn the answers to those questions from Charlotte Savoy, who both embodies accountability in her businesses and coaches other people on The ONE Thing through MAPS Business Coaching.   If you think this sounds like a good fit for you, you can learn more about our Get a ONE Thing Coach, Become a ONE Thing Coach, or Living Your ONE Thing Community.   In this episode, you will learn... [2:30] What is a coach? [5:55] How do you know when it’s time to bring a coach into your world? [13:25] The definition of accountability and what it looks like in a coaching partnership. [23:40] How do you know if a coach is the right coach for you? [32:00] How to own the relationship with your coach and ensure you get maximum value from it.

Ep 121 - Mastering Your Mind & Being Present | Jeff Photiades

March 01, 2018 • 31m

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.

Keep asking that question until you know, for certain, you have identified the correct two-inch domino.   Then you need to apply The Miracle Equation.   If you want some additional guidance on your journey, we highly recommend ordering your copy of The Miracle Equation: The Two Decisions That Move Your Biggest Goals from Possible, to Probable, to Inevitable.
