Do you talk to the people you care about, especially if you’re a parent, about what their goals are and how they can achieve them?   In episode 117, we heard the story of Holli and Cade McCray, a mother and son who started living The ONE Thing together. In this episode, we're talking to another mother-and-son duo: Nicole and Cooper Hefferman.   Cooper is now living his ONE thing, using principles from the book to create a plan and, ultimately, get to Broadway in the next year – and it all started when Nicole picked up a copy of The ONE Thing in an airport and started asking her son more questions about his goals.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: For you to be productive, you have to have clarity on your priorities. And for you to have clarity on your priorities, you need to have an understanding of what your purpose is. Conversations like these help us realize that what we do is founded in purpose.   When you take action, you are impacting other people, and you can shine a light on what is possible.   So who is ONE person that you can empower to start a journey towards mastering their time?   In this episode you will learn... [4:10] Why The Domino Effect is an effective tool for clarifying your vision. [6:50] How you can help your children get clarity on their goals & act more purposefully. [20:00] What stops most people from making progress towards their goal (and how you can overcome that). [22:30] How enlisting support can help you get clarity on Your ONE Thing (and amplify accountability). [34:40] How you can introduce The ONE Thing to your children.   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

You bring a lot of intention, energy, and focus to your professional world – are you bringing that same focus to your relationships at home?   When we don't plan healthy habits in our relationships – especially our romantic relationships – things tend to fall apart as life happens, and that starts to spill over to every other aspect of our lives.   With over 15 years of experiencing helping couples heal, reset, and thrive, relationship therapist and educator John Howard joins the show to help us be more intentional and transform our relationships.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: What is the ONE thing you can do to connect more in your relationships?   We challenge you to go a step farther than thinking about the question – Prove to yourself that you can begin to affect positive change in those relationships that matter.   If working on your relationship is important to you, schedule time for connecting on your calendar (even if it's just a long hug at the end of the workday).   In this episode you will learn... [2:30] The ONE habit that will transform your relationships. [10:00] What you are doing to create disconnection in your relationships. [16:00] How you can have (and start) the tough conversations in your relationships. [23:25] Why it's okay (and beneficial!) to be vulnerable and ask for help in your relationships. [26:20] How you can facilitate connection with your children.   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

As parents, we are constantly asking ourselves the same question: am I doing a good job?   We are responsible for helping a child grow into an adult that will, hopefully, make a massive positive impact in the world – so what will happen if we teach our children the importance of forming habits and focusing on their most important work first?   Today we are going to find out. Holli and Cade McCray are a mother and son who join us to share the incredible story of how they started living The ONE Thing, together.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Consider which is a better way to introduce someone to The ONE Thing: forcing it onto them or living it at a high level and modeling it?   We think you need to be living The ONE Thing, first. So where in your world are you doing a great job at modeling those principles – and what is ONE thing you could be doing better that will cause the people in your life to take notice?   The moment you start empowering others, you start building a legacy.   In this episode you will learn... [3:40] How you can start (subtly) bringing The ONE Thing into your home. [13:20] How your family can be more purposeful with their time, even if structure feels unnatural. [15:00] How you can get your child interested in The ONE Thing (in a kid-approved way).   Links & Tools From This Episode Will you help us get to know you better?

When your ONE thing is your children, you always have more than one thing going on at any given moment, and it never feels like you're in control of your time.   While many listeners have a strong professional focus, we know that a number of you already have the hardest job in the world: being a stay-at-home parent. This show isn't about featuring big names; it's about showing what it looks like when you actually live The ONE Thing –  so today we're sharing this conversation with one of you, Rachel Benson, a stay-at-home mother of three who also has responsibilities supporting her husband's business.   For years Rachel has struggled to balance it all, but in this episode, we offer some guidance. Last week Geoff shared a live coaching call between himself and Tony DiCello, and we learned how a coach helps you amplify accountability – now Geoff is putting those lessons into action.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We love this conversation because Rachel is thinking what all of us are thinking – but she has the confidence to say it out loud, enlist support, and commit to taking actions that will change her results.   You have to get started.   So out of everything discussed in this episode, what is the ONE thing that you can do differently – and will you commit to doing it?   In this episode you will learn... [7:00] What stops us from taking advantage of the resources in front of us. [11:00] How committing yourself to taking action transforms your behavior and mindset. [13:00] How you can make your calendar reflect your goals. [19:10] What it looks like when something is stealing from your true ONE thing (and what it looks like when you get clarity on your focus). [22:00] What it looks like when a coach amplifies your accountability.   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

Why are you doing what you are doing?   The ONE Thing is about teaching the surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results, but many of us fail to ask ourselves that simple question. For many of us, we do what we do to create moments that matter with the people that matter... but, too often, we lose sight of these relationships.   We are dedicating the entire month of February, in our Living Your ONE Thing Community, to creating extraordinary relationships in four specific areas: wealth determiners, loved ones, friends, and mentors. This episode will give you a taste of that, because whether you're a member or not we want you to understand the journey that we're going on so that you can go on it as well.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: If you can only choose one area discussed in this episode to focus on – relationships with wealth determiners, loved ones, friends, or mentors – which do you need to focus on most?   Then, what is the ONE relationship that you can form or enrich that will make everything else easier or unnecessary for you?   If you'd like us to be there as your accountability partner along the way, go to the1thing.com/membership.   In this episode you will learn... [3:40] What questions you should ask yourself about your relationship with the people who determine your wealth and the people whose wealth you determine. [8:30] ONE thing you can do to focus more on the relationships with your loved ones. [12:20] Why you should stop acting like an entrepreneur when it comes to managing your friendships and start getting purposeful about it. [15:00] How to nurture relationships with your mentors and coaches. [17:40] How you can decide what ONE relationship needs your focus now.   Links & Tools From This Episode If you'd like to join us for support on your journey, go to the1thing.com/membership or text the word ACCOUNTABILITY to the number 33444.

Life offers so much – but time is limited, so every day you have to wake up and make choices.   Unfortunately, many of us choose to try to do it all. We have massive ambitions and take massive action but, at the end of the day, we don't feel like we actually got anything done.   Instead of trying to go wide, we have the opportunity to go deep; to be selective about what we choose to learn, have, and do. To help you take advantage of that opportunity, we are sharing this conversation with Eric Barker, author of Barking Up the Wrong Tree: The Surprising Science Behind Why Everything You Know About Success Is (Mostly) Wrong.   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: Think about a time in your life when you didn't feel fulfilled in your professional life, and you decided to move on.   Was it because one of the four key factors of success was missing? Happiness Achievement Significance Legacy   When you reflect on where you are today, how are you doing in those four areas? What can you do differently?   In this episode you will learn... [5:20] What the 4 key factors of success are. [26:25] How you can strategically utilize failure to improve your life by using "little bets." [36:00] Why you should be a (strategic) quitter.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more on Eric’s blog: bakadesuyo.com Connect with Eric: Facebook | Twitter [FREE Training] How to Start Time Blocking TODAY!
