How do you justify inaction?

Most of us have read a book or listened to a podcast, been inspired, and then done nothing... but inaction doesn't produce extraordinary results. This episode is our wake up call.

Jason Rule is one of you: a fan of the book and a fan of the podcast, but he has endured something that, hopefully, most of us will never have to experience. He shares how The ONE Thing helped him get through that rough patch, and scale a business at the same time.

If you need clarity on your goals and priorities, need help establishing a system to live the ONE thing, and you want to surround yourself with high achievers, this event is for you:

  • What: The ONE Thing Goal-Setting Retreat
  • When: November 30th, 2017 - December 1st, 2017
  • Where: Austin, Texas
  • How: the1thing.com/event

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

What's the ONE thing you heard in this episode (that you're not currently doing) that would make a significant impact on how you invest your time?

Now answer truthfully: What is the ONE thing stopping you from taking that action, and how can you overcome that obstacle?

The answers are all inside – sometimes it just takes someone with a different perspective, like Jason, to help us to find them.

In this episode you will learn...

  • [11:40] Why you should give yourself permission to think BIG (and be specific).
  • [14:45] How acting in priority can help you move forward (and even excel) when you are struggling.
  • [16:50] How to practice time blocking in your business when your family is the ONE thing.

Do you understand why finding your purpose matters?

 

You can’t get the right results if you don’t take the right actions, you can’t take the right actions if you don’t know what your priorities are, and you can’t know what your priorities are if you don’t know what your purpose is. However, we understand that most people struggle with this first step.

 

Jim Beebe is a member of the Living Your ONE Thing Community, and he discovered his purpose in a very unlikely place. As you listen to his story, we suggest you reflect on your own life and ask yourself what breadcrumbs you may be overlooking.

 

If you want to learn more about aligning your purpose with your goals, you can join us for our first live event:

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Your results are 100% in your control. It all comes down to implementation.

 

You just invested your most valuable resource, your time, so out of everything that you heard, what is the ONE thing you can implement today?

 

The rewards can be massive, but the opportunity cost, if you choose not to take action, can be just as significant.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [4:10] How putting yourself aside and focusing on others can reveal a dormant ONE thing.
  • [10:40] Why your preconceived idea of a perfect life may be closing you off from possibility and curiosity.
  • [13:30] ONE thing you can do to find clarity around your purpose.

Can you imagine living a life that is so amazing you don’t believe it’s actually possible?

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.

In this episode, Brindley Tucker shares a remarkable story, for the first time on a public platform, that demonstrates how you can go from an incredible low – a rock bottom that most of us will never have to face – and still turn your life around.

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

We recognize the importance of occasionally stopping to acknowledge what we're experiencing in our lives... and we shared this story because we don't want you to wait until something horrible happens that forces you to acknowledge it.

We suggest that you begin by asking for help.

Step One: Identify where you need help. If you reflect on your life, what is the ONE area that you most need help?

Step Two: Identify who you can ask. Who is somebody that will be receptive to helping you?

Step Three: Open up your calendar and identify when you will reach out to them, and then take action.

In this episode you will learn...

  • [14:30] Why you're not responsible for your first thought (but you are responsible for your second).
  • [18:10] How enlisting the right support can reveal something great that you may not see in yourself.
  • [32:20] The ONE thing you need to do before you can surround yourself with the right people.

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.

However, if you want to build that vehicle, you need to start by building a sustainable company.

Babak Azad is the former Senior Vice President of Media and Acquisition at Beach Body, creators of P90X, Insanity, and Shakeology. He led the team that grew the company from $100M to $1B in revenue, and he did it while building trust with their customers. He shares how you can develop a mindset that will help you strike a balance between delivering short-term revenue and building a brand that people trust.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

If you want to build a sustainable business, you need to make the word brand part of your daily lexicon and treat your customers the way they want to be treated. You can start by considering the following questions:

  1. What is the experience your customers want and prefer? How can you create a great experience for them?
  2. 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...

  • [8:10] The two key components of a brand.
  • [11:05] ONE question we wish we had asked ourselves earlier.
  • [16:20] How you can strike the right tension between short-term revenue and long-term trust.

What does the life of a thought leader look like?

Many of the most influential leaders have forged similar paths and made the same mistakes. If you pay attention to the common themes and model high achievers, you can take a shortcut towards a greater impact.

Corey Poirier is a bestselling author, multiple time TEDx speaker, and host of the Conversations with PASSION! Radio Show & Podcast. Corey has sat down to conduct individual interviews with over 4,000 thought leaders, and in the process, he identified three recurring themes that many high achievers credit their success to.

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.
  • [40:25] How to help your child navigate their emotions. You can learn more about this in "Teaching Your Child Emotional Agility."

If you are struggling with organization, it’s not your fault.

You probably haven't been taught what it takes to get organized at work.

I know nobody ever sat us down and showed us how to get organized, until we started working with Gary Keller and Jay Papasan.  Today we want to share with you what we’ve learned about getting organized and the research that our team has uncovered about what it takes to be productive at work.

 

The ONE Thing to Take Away From This Episode:

Look at all of the things you do throughout the day. How much of that directly supports you accomplishing your one thing? If you don’t think you’re investing enough time there, then take one small step towards doing your most important work first.

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. That means you can form up to five life-changing power habits every year... but how many power habits have you acquired over even the past five years?

Most of us haven't formed very many, and that's okay. 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.

You can download your own 66-Day Calendar for free at the1thing.com/66daychallenge.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [5:25] The 1st Habit: How to act in order of priority.
  • [10:30] The 2nd Habit: How to schedule time with yourself to do your most important work (and protect it).
  • [19:40] The 3rd Habit: How to think BIG and act small.

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.

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.
