When Hurricane Harvey devastated southern Texas, we at Keller Williams canceled a national convention so we could focus on relief efforts.

 

We auctioned off the guest seat for an episode of the show, and Craig Goodliffe earned it with a very generous donation – but this conversation ended up being extremely valuable because Craig has been living The ONE Thing for years.

 

Craig shares how he says NO, and how he leverages virtual assistants so that he can focus on his most important work. In the second half of the episode, we grill Craig and ask a series of questions that you can use to find clarity and transform your life.

 

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Out of everything in this episode, what is the ONE thing you can do that will make focusing on your most important work easier or unnecessary?

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [2:00] How the 5th productivity thief steals your time.
  • [5:05] How to get clarity on the ONE thing that is stealing most of your time.
  • [13:00] How (and where) you can leverage virtual assistants.
  • [20:40] How to shape your environment so that it supports your goals.

Most people are currently wasting at least 20% of their time – but you can take that time back, in less than 30 days.

 

Marc King is a regional director and coach within Keller Williams, which gives him a unique perspective when it comes to controlling our time. With his help, we created this training on overcoming some of the biggest challenges you have with your time and the easy way you can take back control of it.

 

This training ended up being really helpful for some members of the Keller Williams family, so we also wanted to share it with all of you.

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

We discussed a few specific things in this episode that you can choose from:

  • Are you creating Your 411 every week? If you need some inspiration, head over to www.the1thing.com/411excel to see how Geoff does it.

  • If your 411 feels like a to-do list, can you make it a must-do list?
  • Are your priorities in order of priority?
  • Does your calendar reflect your priorities?

 

In this episode you will learn...

Ray Bard is one of the most successful business publishers in the world. He published The ONE Thing and the best-selling sales book of all time, The Little Red Book of Selling. Ray's newest bestseller is Fired Up! Selling, a quote book for salespeople.

 

We talk about what it takes to create a bestseller, and you get a peek into the mind of a marketing genius. Ray's insight goes much deeper than writing – it applies to any business, product, or service.

 

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:

This conversation isn't just about books – it's about business and serving people at the highest level. When you look at what you do, is there a deep-felt need? Is it a small market or a big market? Are you selling hope?

Open up your calendar and schedule 15 minutes so you can create a plan for putting it into action.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [3:30] Why Ray focuses on publishing just ONE book at a time (compared to the average publisher, which releases 2-500 books a year).
  • [9:00] Why you have to "create" a bestseller – you don't just write one.
  • [12:00] How you can assess the size of a market (number of potential customers) and a market's depth (the strength of the felt need), and then leverage that information to market your product or service.
  • [24:10] What you need to ask yourself (and do) before you start creating a new product or service.

Oct 30, 2017

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 <Name of Your Product>? 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.

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:

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.

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.

It's easy to give something away... but do you know how to give strategically?

 

Business owners have a tremendous opportunity to do more than just make a profit – they can make a massive impact in the world, and this has been top of mind for us in light of the devastating natural disasters in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.

 

Jay Papasan recently took the stage to deliver a keynote about why making more money also means you can make a more significant impact, and how you can give a million dollars away strategically. We want to share this valuable training with you because we believe it's vital that business owners leverage their businesses as vehicles for positive change.

Are you struggling with goal setting?

One of the biggest challenges many people have with goal setting is that they don’t frequently get out of their environment; they don’t surround themselves with the people who will expand their minds so that they can set goals properly.

  • What: The ONE Thing Goal Setting Retreat
  • When: November 30th, 2017 - December 1st, 2017

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 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."
