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 struggle to control your time?

How can you reset the bar for success to a level that you know you can achieve, day after day, so that you can build up momentum and line up your dominoes?

Are you struggling to upgrade your five? 

A lot of us understand why we need to upgrade our five, but we don't understand how.

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

If you want to upgrade your five and you don't know how, this is a great place to start.

Step 2: Get clear about who you need to meet. Describe the person who can best guide you in the area that you identified in step one, in just one sentence. 

Step 3: Set a goal of sharing that sentence with someone at least once a day. Hold yourself accountable by downloading our free 66-day calendar and starting a 66-Day Challenge.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [4:50] How to identify where you need help most.
  • [9:20] Why people struggle to upgrade their five.

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.
