We love to share stories about how people just like you are living the surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results, whether those people are business owners, employees, parents, or, in this case, educators.

 

Jethro Jones is a high school principal and the host of the Transformative Principal podcast. He conducted an incredible interview with Geoff, and we immediately knew it was something we had to share with you because it gets right to the heart of how you can live The ONE Thing.

 

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Out of everything mentioned in this episode, what is the ONE thing that you are not doing that you can start doing, immediately?

 

Make sure that is is something you CAN do – something that you actually have the capacity to do.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [2:20] What happens when you protect time to do your most important work.
  • [5:45] What happens when you start saying NO to the 80% work.
  • [8:45] How you can communicate more effectively with the people you work with.
  • [14:00] How to enforce standards in your world (so that you can get what you want when you want it).

Do you ever feel purposeless?

 

We know finding clarity and purpose is difficult, so we're approaching it from a different angle today: how you can develop the courageous mindset you need to develop purpose, because we believe that anyone can have world-class purpose.

 

Sheryl Kline is an author, speaker, and coach who trains high-performance athletes in Mental Toughness. She shares the small but significant difference between you and an Olympian, and how you can close the gap between where you are and extraordinary results.

 

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

You don't need to, and shouldn't, go on this journey by yourself. Nobody succeeds alone.

 

So, who are your five? Or, as Jim Rohn puts it, who are the five people you spend the most time with? Are they where you want to be, and are they living their ONE thing?

 

If the answer is no, you need to join the Living Your ONE Thing Community because that is what you'll get. We will help you believe in your DNA that you can do this, and discover what you want to be.

 

Go to the1thing.com/membership to join our community.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [4:05] What creates the gap between high achievers and everyone else.
  • [7:00] How you can use positive affirmation to develop a more purposeful mindset.
  • [11:10] Why you need to practice being purposeful (and how to practice deliberately).
  • [12:40] Why you need to align yourself with an expert and put an accountability structure in place.
  • [15:00] How you can commit to progress (instead of perfection).

If you want to live an extraordinary life, you have to master something – but it only has to be ONE thing.

 

For many of us, mastering the ability to communicate with other people, or connect with others, is the ONE thing that will make everything else easier or unnecessary.

 

Today, we sit down with someone who has mastered the art of asking great questions: Susan Scott, the author of Fierce Conversations. This episode is so meaningful for us, and we think it will mean just as much for you because Susan models a Fierce Conversation live.

 

If you put yourself in our shoes and answer each question honestly, you will experience how profound having Fierce Conversations can be, and what will be possible if you invite more conversations like these into your relationships.

 

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Identify a relationship in your life that is not where you want it to be; a relationship that matters to you, and is hurting.

 

If the conversation IS the relationship, what do your conversations have to look like moving forward so that you can feel better about where that relationship is?

 

Remember, this talk doesn't have to be intense or negative – it can come from a place of love, and it can be delivered with candor and care.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [12:30] What the 4 goals of a Fierce Conversation are.
  • [19:00] ONE thing that many business owners are doing that ruins their businesses (and their relationships).
  • [25:15] the ONE thing you can do to make connecting on a deeper level easier.
  • [36:30] What a Fierce Conversation sounds like.
  • [1:00:30] How you can leverage Fierce Conversations in your life.

We're always on our own road to mastery, trying to figure out how we can serve you better. So, anytime someone leaves the Living Your ONE Thing community, we make it a point to ask them a few questions.

 

Today we're sharing one of those conversations, a chat with Kerri Mees, because it is so powerful. We've come to realize that accountability starts by looking in the mirror, and no podcast or program will make a difference in your life if you are not, first and foremost, the type of person who chooses to be accountable.

 

What type of person will you choose to be?

 

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

You can change the direction of your future – if you are willing to accept that you can have anything you want by, first and foremost, narrowing your focus and doing the things that matter most.

 

We believe that you can do this. You just have to get up and practice every single day – and it only gets easier with support.

 

If you want to take the next step, we are here for you in the Living Your ONE Thing Community, and we will be your accountability partners. You can join by going to the1thing.com/membership.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [3:20] Why asking for help is an essential part of the road to mastery.
  • [9:20] Why you need to manage your expectations for immediate results (if you want to achieve lasting success).
  • [26:20] Why you shouldn't give up, even if the process is hard or boring.
