How is your health right now?

 

For many of us, The ONE Thing is our health – or it should be. We get so busy and stuck in the day-to-day that we often neglect healthy choices and, instead, opt for convenience. Or we just feel so busy that making a healthy meal or going to the gym just feels impossible.

 

Today, we want to introduce you to someone who has spent the last few years making health Her ONE Thing, and as a result, lost over 100 pounds. This is a journey that has completely transformed her productivity and personal fulfillment, in addition to her health. Laurie Roth is the Learning Experience Designer here on The ONE Thing team and we can’t wait for you to hear her story.

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.

Hiring is challenging, but there is ONE place you can go where hiring is simple, fast, and smart – and that place is ZipRecruiter.com/ONEthing.

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?

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
