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.

Mastering the art of time blocking can completely transformed your life. If you want to form a powerful habit that sticks, check out the Time Blocking Mastery course.

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. What's your ONE thing and where do you need help?

I want to engage with you and I want to add value to your life. I've seen what happens when you live The ONE Thing, and I know what it can do for you.

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?

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 me down and showed me how to get organized, until I started working with Gary Keller and Jay Papasan.

Today I want to share with you what I've learned about getting organized and the research that our team has uncovered about what it takes to be productive at work.

There are four key areas that you need to organize:

  1. Mind
  2. Time
  3. Physical Workspace
  4. Projects
