Do you believe that hustling and working long hours will eventually make you successful?

Gary Keller says that if you work long enough, you can muscle your way to a result… but you end up cheating yourself out of an extraordinary life.

In this episode, we’re going to talk about how you can begin to make shifts so that you work a set number of hours, and then you actually live a life outside of your professional world.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

We hope this episode helps you think a little bit differently about how you invest your time so that you can live a more extraordinary life.

Step 1: Get clear on your priorities. Head over to the1thing.com/resources to download a free copy of Your 411.

Step 2: When you have clarity on your priorities, time block it on your calendar.

Step 3: After your priorities are on your calendar, proactively identify the distractions that are most likely to pop up and think about how you will handle them in advance.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [4:35] What it means to be efficient and effective with your time.
  • [7:50] Why we sometimes feel busy, but don't feel like we're getting anything done.
  • [9:25] How to leverage the potential of your 411 to focus on your priorities.

Do you ever feel like you're working hard... but not getting the results that you deserve?

So many of us feel isolated by this feeling, but you are NOT alone.

We are sharing a conversation we had with one of you, Lizzie Grant, to demonstrate how common this feeling is. We failed Lizzie, but we called her because we always want to learn from our failures. We never intended for this conversation to be a podcast episode, but it was too inspiring and too valuable not to share with all of you.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Get clear on what your priorities really are. Write them down on a sheet of paper.

Now ask yourself: What is the minimum amount of time that you need to invest in your top priority to make progress?

Don't set the bar too high because, when you start taking action every day, it will become a habit.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [9:00] How taking a break can help you get clarity.
  • [11:30] Why so many of us struggle to control our time (not just you!).
  • [18:00] How you can get clarity on what you want and develop a system that helps you do those things in order of priority.

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.

Do you believe that thinking big and acting small, every day, will create extraordinary results?

We've found that many people who try to live The ONE Thing don't trust The Domino Effect. We can cast a big vision for our life, but we often struggle to take daily action.

This episode is a case study examining how, over four years, someone like you identified a specific daily action that made everything else easier or unnecessary, started living a big life, and toppled some huge dominoes.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Trust in the power of The Domino Effect. What's the ONE thing you can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary? When you look at all of the areas of your life, what's the ONE area you need to focus on first?

Apply the focusing question until you identify a specific, measurable action that will make everything else easier or unnecessary – for John, it was as simple as setting a recurring alarm clock.

If you'd like us to be your accountability partner in getting results and your mentor in living your ONE thing, then text the word “FOUNDER” to the number 33444 or go to the1thing.com/membership.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [4:40] What most people struggle with when they start trying to live The ONE Thing.
  • [10:50] The ONE thing to take away from the book that will help you knock over your lead domino.
  • [13:20] How you can leverage simplicity to grow your business.
  • [18:05] How the 5th productivity thief steals your time.
  • [26:25] How systematizing your ideal morning will help you execute at a higher level.
  • [30:35] How simplifying your lead Domino makes it easier to knock over.
  • [33:05] The first step you should take towards living your ONE thing.

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.

Today's guest, Gene Rivers, understands how anyone can achieve the work-life balance they deserve. 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.

Wanting to change won't make you change – someone holding you accountable to change might.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [4:40] How you can create your ideal life with this ONE mindset shift.
  • [8:30] Why you always need to be intentional with your time (and what it sounds like to have completely focused mindset).
  • [21:25] How Gene uses a powerful (but under-utilized) two-letter word to control his time.
  • [29:00] How enlisting support can help you focus on your ONE thing.
  • [35:35] Why using standards with accountability will build up the people around you and help you succeed through others.

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.

We were honored to have Geoff Woods featured on the Access to Anyone podcast with Michael Schein & Michael Roderick, and the episode was so valuable that we wanted to share it with you. 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.

Can you approach them with a sincere and genuine curiosity about where they need help, and if you can help them?

You may be surprised by the reaction.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [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.
  • [34:45] Why you should make goals based on what matters to you (and how to ignore what society says your goals should be).
  • [37:20] ONE surprisingly simple way to open up new opportunities (and how you can do it).
  • [39:35] How you can genuinely add value to others.

Do you ever feel like you work so hard and so long that you don't have time for your health, family, or spiritual practice? 

You know that this pace will lead to burnout... but saying no and putting yourself before anything else can feel like a huge challenge. 

Tammy Duncan, like many of us, struggles with being a workaholic every day. In this episode, we teach workaholics to say no, put themselves first, and take back some free time.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

What's ONE thing that you can take from this episode today?

Most of us struggle, every single day, with showing up at our best, succeeding through others, delegating tasks, setting boundaries, or communicating expectations... but we can change that by taking small steps.

Take a commitment to taking action. Listening to the podcast is great, but backing it with action is when you get results, value, and become part of a legacy.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [10:20] How you can achieve the highest form of success.
  • [12:30] What happens when you say no.
  • [14:00] How The Seven Circles can help you identify where your priorities are (and if you need to shift them).

Do you ever feel like you can't find the right balance between work, family, and yourself?

You're not alone. There's so much that we need to do in a day and, when we try to narrow our focus to one thing, we can feel guilty about neglecting something else. 

Sophie Kendall, a mother of two and a health and fitness coach, is all too familiar with this guilt... but she learned how to gain control of her life – and you can too.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

If you're struggling with guilt due to where you are focusing your time, we encourage you to start a 66-Day Challenge and block out time to focus on yourself.

Set aside a few minutes to meditate, exercise, or do whatever focusing on yourself means to you.

If you take care of yourself first, that will make taking care of everything else easier or unnecessary.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [4:05] Why you can't help other people if you don't help yourself first.
  • [13:15] Why your purpose can be surprisingly simple.
  • [26:15] What Gary Keller taught us about making something world-class.
