Does your organization have a culture of accountability?

 

In the last episode, Abe Shreve taught us that one of the critical mistakes that many businesses make is not creating a culture of accountability. It is a necessary part of sustainable business growth, but as many of us have experienced, it’s not an easy thing to do.

 

So, today, Gene Rivers is going to teach us how he created a culture of accountability with his team – and how you can coach your people to their possibilities, too!

 

If you want support in implementing what is discussed in this episode, head over to the1thing.com/training.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [9:40] Why you need empire builders to your team (and how you can identify them)
  • [16:30] How you can leverage a weekly checkup to create more accountability
  • [30:00] Why you need to stop hating on your stepping stones
  • [31:15] How you can set everyone in your team up for success (and how you can help people who aren't succeeding)

Are you accountable – to yourself and other people?

 

We all want accountability in our lives, in one way or another, but developing habits around accountability and then building a culture of accountability within an organization are both a lot harder to do than they sound. So we invited a couple of our favorite accountability experts to join us for a three-part series that will help you bring more accountability to yourself, your team, and your organization.

 

Today’s guest has personally led over 9,000 independent coaching calls over the past four years, leading conversations with business owners across all industries, and he has developed a very unique perspective on the mistakes you may be making that, if unchanged, will inevitably lead to burnout. So, in this episode, Abe Shreve teaches us about the three critical mistakes of business growth.

 

If you are interested in what it looks like to have more accountability in your life, go to the1thing.com/training.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [6:00] What most business leaders do – and what they should be doing to build a sustainably profitable business
  • [12:30] The two questions that everyone should be asking their team members and bosses
  • [15:10] What you can do if you struggle to say no
  • [19:00] The ONE Thing that will make avoiding these three mistakes easier or unnecessary
  • [38:40] What happens when you don’t create a culture where accountability is the lifeblood of how you work and interact in your organization
  • [47:00] An exercise that will help you and your organization embrace accountability
  • [1:00:00] Why accountability isn’t punitive

Imagine you are on an airplane and, along the way, it starts to deviate just a few degrees off course – if the plane does not correct course over the length of that flight, do you think you’ll end up in the right destination?

 

Probably not, and who knows where we would end up! But this is the way that most people live their lives – they wake up, take action, and move forward, but they’re not always clear on exactly where they’re going or why they’re going there. And when they’re off course, they’re not even aware of it, which is why so many people live a life by default instead of a life by design.

 

So, today, we want to introduce you to Dr. Cindy McGovern, who has been living the principles of The ONE Thing to ensure that she has a great career, and you will hear how purpose and planning were fundamental to living her mission: changing the way that people view sales.

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [2:30] Why every job is a sales job
  • [4:45] How adopting the sales mindset will help you have a career worth having
  • [13:30] Why most people don’t do the simple things that get results
  • [19:30] The biggest mistake that most people are making as they trying to live The ONE Thing
  • [29:35] The sales skills that every person should be trying to master

Do you have a habit of taking time to ask yourself big questions?

 

In the last episode, we learned about how Keith Cunningham lost $100MM dollars – and why it was worth it because he developed this habit of thinking time. Really, we could all benefit from blocking off time in our calendars to purposefully sit down with great questions that truly evaluate how we’re showing up in the world and help us gain clarity.

 

In this episode, we continue our conversation with Keith and learn more about the biggest mistakes that people make as a result of not having thinking time blocks.

Do you know what it’s like to be so busy taking action that it feels like you don’t have time to slow down and create a plan?

 

We all feel this way sometimes. It’s become the norm in society – we wake up, we check email, we show up to work, we check email, we go to meetings, other people need our help so we stop to help them, and on and on. We race through the day feeling like we are so busy and then we question if we got anything done.

 

Today’s guest shares why there’s nothing worse than running enthusiastically in the wrong direction – and how doing so cost him $100MM. Keith Cunningham is the author of The Road Less Stupid, the story of how that mistake taught him the ONE habit that makes everything else in business easier or unnecessary.

  • [16:15] The key to being successful

  • [35:25] The key difference between business owners & business operators (and what you can do to shift from being an operator to being an owner)
  • [40:00] One of Keith’s favorite questions – and one you should be asking yourself

Everything you want in your career comes down to ONE thing – the relationships that you have.

 

So when we neglect our relationships, we are limiting our own ability to accomplish our goals and live extraordinary lives.

 

But you don’t have to settle for anything less than extraordinary, and as an extra bonus, cultivating great relationships will just make your personal and business life that much better! That’s why we are excited to share this conversation with Ken Coleman, one of the Dave Ramsey personalities and the author of The Proximity Principle: The Proven Strategy That Will Lead to a Career You Love.

 

We also want to know how you are doing with the goals that you set at the beginning of the year. Do you need to think bigger, or are you falling behind, or are you a little unclear on what you actually want? Wherever you may fall, one thing we know is that you’d benefit from a reset. Learn more about The ONE Thing Mid-Year Reset Retreat at https://trainings.the1thing.com/reset.

How do you bring change into an organization?

 

The truth is, we don’t have to be in the C-suite of our organizations to spark change, or to even be a leader within our organization – because all leadership begins with self-leadership. So, when it comes to bringing The ONE Thing into an organization, it all begins with ONE person.

 

In this episode, Geoff Woods and Jay Papasan share how leaders can begin living the principles of The ONE Thing with their team. We dive deep into the tools that we use and train organizations to use, all so that you can live the surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results.

  • [10:45] How to train your boss to respect your boundaries
  • [14:15] How to shift from ME to WE, when you’re living the principles of The ONE Thing
  • [19:30] What it looks like to coach or interrogate a 411 (and the most common mistakes that people make when they create a 411)
  • [26:10] How to identify Your ONE Thing & Your Team’s ONE Thing
  • [29:35] How do you create accountability when you struggle with holding yourself accountable?
  • [35:00] What it looks like to teach through leadership

It’s relatively easy for an individual to start practicing The ONE Thing in their daily lives... but how do you scale The ONE Thing throughout an organization?

 

Behind the scenes, we’ve been asking ourselves this question, and we’ve been working hard to come up with an answer that will help all teams, from a local real estate office all the way up to a Fortune 50 company, make living The ONE Thing part of their organizational culture.

 

Geoff Woods and Jay Papasan recently delivered a keynote presentation at the Keller Williams Family Reunion Convention, and today we’re going to share the first half of that presentation with all of you. Geoff and Jay walk you through the high-level principles you need to know before you introduce The ONE Thing to your team and what the benefits are when you begin to adopt this in your culture. Next week, in part two, we’ll discuss how leaders within an organization can begin to use the specific tools of The ONE Thing to not only live the principles yourself, but spread them with their teams.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [8:30] How you can achieve exponential momentum
  • [14:00] How do you identify Your ONE Thing?
  • [17:50] How to turn your job into a business
  • [24:50] An exercise to illustrate what’s possible for you
  • [26:15] How you can leverage The Produktive System

Have you taken any time to be grateful today?

 

When we think about forming power habits, we often think about doing something that will improve our productivity or health. We rarely consider the transformative power of mindset habits, and one of the most powerful habits is gratitude. That may seem like an easy or trivial thing, but in practice, embodying a state of gratitude every day is both surprisingly challenging and significant.

 

Our guest John Israel, founder of The Mr. Thank You Project and author of The Mr. Thank You Project, experienced an epiphany: if he wanted to make a huge, positive impact on the world, he had to start by doing just ONE thing to express his gratitude, every day. This ONE habit, over time, has truly unleashed something extraordinary, and in this episode, we invite you to become a part of it.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [9:30] How to form a keystone habit for embodying gratitude
  • [16:40] How to manage your time so that you don’t fail a 66-day (or 365-day) challenge
  • [20:45] How to be grateful when you don’t want to be
  • [36:00] Why you should consider doing this 66-day challenge

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Out of everything you’ve heard in this episode, what’s the ONE thing you can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary?

 

Get clear on that ONE thing, block it out in your calendar, and then protect it. Your life of gratitude starts there.

 

If you want to take on John’s challenge, head over to https://mrthankyou.com/30. If you want to set yourself up for success on your 66-day challenge, try the free 66-Day Challenge Training. If you need a coach to hold you accountable on your challenge, check out The ONE Thing Coaching.

Have you ever felt like you desperately want your situation to change... but no matter how hard you work, you just feel like you’re drowning?

 

There are these periods of our lives when, no matter how much action we take, we feel overwhelmed, and we just wish that we could take back our lives. We’re ambitious, we’re driven, but that just doesn’t feel like enough to get any forward momentum. This is especially true when we have kids, because honoring work commitments and being present as a parent is a monumentally difficult task for even the most extraordinary people.

 

That was how Casey Gocel felt, until she started living The ONE Thing. In this episode, Casey shares the story of how she struggled to strike a counterbalance in her life after having her first child – and how things started to change when she started doing just ONE thing differently; ONE thing that’s truly made everything else in her world easier or unnecessary.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [5:00] What happens when you take a hard and honest look at your calendar
  • [11:30] The ONE Thing that can help you reclaim your calendar and your time
  • [14:00] How to say no
  • [18:55] How you can leverage accountability and delegation to help you stick to your most important tasks
  • [25:45] What happens when your productivity and transformation inspires other people to take note

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Wherever you are, whatever you are dealing with in your life, understand that it doesn’t have to be that way. You can make amazing changes in your life – and it doesn’t have to take that long!

 

The path to getting everything you want is to get ONE thing at a time. So start by identifying the ONE thing that will make everything else easier or unnecessary, and start focusing on that lead domino until it falls. Over time, as you can hear in this episode, it truly leads to extraordinary results (as long as you can overcome the distractions that try to steal your focus).

Do you ever struggle living the principles of The ONE Thing?

 

We know that there’s a surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results – but simple doesn’t mean easy. It’s not easy to maintain clarity on Your ONE Thing. It’s not easy to get Your ONE Thing done before you do anything else. It’s not easy to honor your time blocks and shut down every distraction that comes up. So what does it really take to overcome that hurdle and start living Your ONE Thing consistently?

 

To helps us answer that question, we are joined by Hal Elrod, author of the international bestseller The Miracle Morning and the brand-new book The Miracle Equation: The Two Decisions That Move Your Biggest Goals from Possible, to Probable, to Inevitable.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [2:45] What is a miracle?
  • [8:00] The real purpose of a goal
  • [16:30] How to achieve tangible, measurable miracles
  • [21:35] Making the decision to have unwavering faith
  • [40:00] ONE question you need to ask yourself if you are struggling to live The ONE Thing

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

If you could online achieve ONE goal this year, what would mean the most to you?

 

Once you understand what that goal is, ask yourself, what’s the ONE thing you can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary?

 

You don’t earn the right to do anything else until you find an answer, and with it, the two-inch domino you can knock down. Keep asking that question until you know, for certain, you have identified the correct two-inch domino.

 

Then you need to apply The Miracle Equation.

 

If you want some additional guidance on your journey, we highly recommend ordering your copy of The Miracle Equation: The Two Decisions That Move Your Biggest Goals from Possible, to Probable, to Inevitable. You will get an additional $1,347 in bonuses (including a 6-week live online training with Hal) if you order the book in the launch period, so don’t miss out.

Are you living a life by default or by design?

 

Many of us are living a life by default. We wake up, check social media, react to what we see, head into the office, check email, react, sit in meetings, get up, check email, react, and then go to the next meeting – and this repeats day after day after day! We feel so busy, and we wonder why we don’t get anything done.

 

When you live a life by default, you just get what you get – but when you life a life by design, you are working towards the goals you want with intention and a strategy. Today’s guest has travelled down a long and difficult road, but there’s ONE thing thing that allowed him to turn his failures into his success: a clear vision. In this episode, we’re going to learn how Brian Scudamore, CEO of O2E Brands and author of WTF?! (Willing to Fail), found the keys to success in his failures, ultimately growing a $400M+ business without sacrificing time with the people who matter most.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [9:20] What your life looks like when you life a life by design
  • [14:00] How you can start adopting the mindset that everything doesn’t matter equally
  • [16:40] How to listen to your failures
  • [22:00] How you can make time to cast a vision when you’re so busy working on your business
  • [33:50] What you can to do help the people you lead create a life, not a living
  • [37:00] Why you need to fall in love with your vision

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Brian tells us that the ONE thing that will make creating a life – not a living – easier or unnecessary is casting that vivid vision.

 

This isn’t easy. Often, we run into a wall of “I don’t knows,” and it takes both big questions and support to get over past that wall.

 

If you are looking for guidance, we recommend you check out The ONE Thing Goal Setting Master Course so that you can, from your hope, have a whole retreat facilitated for you. We will teach you the questions you need to ask to push past that wall, and then once you have your vision, we will help you create the goals that will get you there.

 

If you already have your vision, but you are struggling with identifying your ONE thing so that you stay aligned with your vision every day, check out The ONE Thing Membership. This community exists to support each member form a stronger relationship with their goals; it’s a community of high-achievers and, together, we’re going to go places.

Are your priorities today aligned with your five-year goals?

 

If we aren’t taking steps towards our someday goals every single day, we’re probably never going to get there – at least not any time soon. But if we have the right mindset and structures in place, not only can we achieve our someday goals, we can achieve them even faster than we think is possible.

 

Last week, Jay Papasan and Geoff Woods discussed the how billionaires set goals using a process called Goal Setting to the Now. Today, we’re going to share the tools and processes that billionaires use to ensure they stay on track towards their someday goals, every day.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [5:00] How to make progress towards big goals, as a team, using a GPS
  • [13:00] The mistake that most people make when they start time blocking
  • [27:15] How you can use leverage to ensure that you’re always acting in order of priority
  • [42:30] What you can do to help others with their time management and goal setting

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

We want you to think big, then go small.

 

Think big about your someday goals. Think big about being the type of person who has a GPS, who updates their 411 every single week, who time blocks their priorities and says no to all the distractions. That’s the big vision.

 

And now let’s go small – what’s the ONE thing you can do, such that be doing it, everything else will be easier or unnecessary?

 

Jay suggests you can just make a commitment to getting the first draft of Your GPS done by Wednesday, or if you already have that, complete or update Your 411.

Are you living a life by default or are you living a life by design?

 

Most of us are living a life by default. We wake up, take action, experience some successes, experience some failures, then repeat – but we get what we get by default. When billionaires set goals, however, they cast a vision into the future, then look backwards and set goals to the now. That’s how we live a life by design.

 

In this episode, we’re sharing the first half of Jay Papasan and Geoff Woods’s keynote presentation at the Keller Williams Family Reunion Convention 2019. This part is about the high-level principles of goal setting like a billionaire, and in the second part, we will dive into the tools billionaires use for goal setting.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [3:40] How you can start goal setting to the now
  • [11:20] What you can learn from Gary Keller about getting clarity on your goals
  • [16:00] Where in your life are you currently chasing distractions and saying no to what is truly the priority?

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

If you want to achieve extraordinary results, you can’t set goals looking forward. You have to have a vision for where you want to end up so that you can look back and identify the path that will get you there.

 

When you do that, you will know how to separate a true priority from a distraction.

What happens when your actions aren’t aligned with your goals?

 

When we are focusing on our ONE thing, it’s not like the rest of the world stops. The emails don’t stop piling up, meeting requests don’t cease to exist, and customer fires don’t magically disappear. The deeper we go into our one thing, the more this pressure builds – and we’re often so afraid of this chaos that we use time set aside for our ONE thing to clear off some of that 80% work. It feels productive for a moment, but in reality, we’re acting out of alignment with our goals.

 

So what happens when real stress and real anxiety starts to build up, and how do you deal with it without taking a detour off of the road to being extraordinary? To help us answer those questions, we are joined once again by Craig Ballantyne, author of the Wall-Street Journal Bestseller Unstoppable and The Perfect Day Formula.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [4:00] How we suffer from the paradox of freedom
  • [7:00] What catalyzes our stress and anxiety
  • [18:45] How you can get clarity on what’s most important
  • [24:00] How to take a more proactive approach to your life

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Out of everything that you heard in this episode, what is the ONE thing that really stood out to you? And how can we take that spark of interest, that curiosity, and turn it into action?

 

It’s ONE thing at a time, over time, that creates results – so just pick ONE thing, and if you’re not in the middle of a 66-day challenge, start one: http://the1thing.com/66daychallenge.

Have you ever scheduled time for your most important work?

 

Chances are, all of us has done this at least once. But do you regularly time block and then protect that time like the air you breathe, defending it against every distraction that comes up? For most of us, the answer is no – but why is that?

 

In this episode, we suggest that this is because we’re not great at keeping the promises we make to ourselves or to others – and we believe that if you can get a little more intentional about the promises you make when you’re planning your time, and the commitments you make to others, then everything else will become easier or unnecessary. Our guest, Alex Sheen, has taken this idea of a promise and turned it into a movement and a book called Because I Said I Would, which is helping people all over the world make promises that stick.

 

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.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [7:30] How the “market conditions” of promises have changed with technology
  • [12:30] The anatomy of a promise
  • [18:00] How you can gracefully say no – and still help people move towards their goals
  • [28:30] How you can leverage time blocking to prioritize what you do and don’t promise to do

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

 

What’s the ONE thing that you’re not doing that would make saying no easier or unnecessary?

 

Maybe you need to get clear on why you’re saying yes to what you’re saying yes to and no to what you’re saying no to. If you don’t have clarity on your bigger purpose, your bigger Why, it can be difficult to stick to your guns and say no when it matters.

 

Or maybe you need a go-to no sentence like Alex’s: “It would be easy for me to say yes right now, but I respect you too much to keep a promise I can’t keep.”

 

How much time do you think you’ll need to block to come up with that sentence? And how many times do you think you’ll have to practice it, even just one time a day, before it just sounds natural? Sounds like a good candidate for a 66-Day Challenge: http://the1thing.com/66daychallenge.

Do you run a small business?

 

Small business owners wear a lot of hats. Some of those hats feel incredible to wear. However, filing taxes and running payroll... well, for most of us, they don’t feel great and they’re not our ONE thing. That’s where Gusto comes in to help you make payroll, taxes, and HR easy. So ask yourself, it time to take off some of your hats?

 

You can get three FREE months when you run your first payroll at Gusto.com/ONE.
