So you have clarity on what your ONE thing is – but what do you do if you have more than ONE thing, or if your ONE thing changes?

 

How do we know if we have truly earned the right to focus on something else? Today we’re going to hear the story of someone who tried to do focus on everything, until he started living the principles of The ONE Thing. He simplified his life, started scaling a great business, and struck an amazing counterbalance.

 

However, in the last year, he looked up and realized that his lead domino has changed – so what did he do? Ryan Lee, founder of REWIND, joins us to share his story about creating simplicity in his life.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [7:00] What it looks like when your lead domino changes.
  • [18:00] How to build a routine that allows you to focus on the biggest priority in your life.
  • [26:10] Overcoming the thief of chaos.
  • [35:00] How to simplify your life with the simple act of saying no.

What does football have to do with the 411?

 

Well back in 1960, the Packers made it to the NFL Championship, had a lead the whole game, and then lost to the Eagles in a stunning display in the fourth quarter. On the first day of training camp the following year, coach Vince Lombardi walked into the locker room, held up a football, and said, “This is a football.”

 

Why did Lombardi start with something so fundamental? He realized that if they could truly understand the surprising power of mastering the fundamentals, that that ONE thing could make everything else easier or unnecessary – and in 1961, the Packers went on to win the championship. So in this episode, we’re going to help you master the most fundamental tool in The ONE Thing toolbox: the 411.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [6:30] How to get clarity on what matters most thing is using the 411.
  • [12:00] How to differentiate a priority from a distraction by goal setting to the now.
  • [19:00] Why sometimes you will be succeeding so slowly that you feel like you’re failing.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Getting what you want out of life is not about doing more – it’s about doing more of what matters most.

 

Everything does not matter equally, and there are a handful of things that you can do, at any moment, that will create the majority of your results. Are you willing to try leveraging a 411 so that you are always clear on what those priorities are, so that your planner and your calendar can match your priorities?

 

If you want to get started on this...
