Do you ever feel guilty because you’re not perfectly prioritizing Your ONE Thing, or because you’re not as successful as you’d like to be?

 

We have to remember that living The ONE Thing isn’t about being perfect – and we don’t need to apologize if we stumble a little on the journey! We can give ourselves some grace.

She helps women all over the world balance everything – although these principles really apply to everyone – and she’s just the reminder we need to get over the mid-year hump.

What does it actually mean to live The ONE Thing?

 

Sometimes we have an idea of what we think it means to live The ONE Thing at the highest level. We start to take action, but things aren’t quite as easy as we thought they would be. So, today, we are going to demystify what it means to live The ONE Thing.

 

Our guest has been living The ONE Thing at a pretty high level for over a year. She was a little skeptical when she started, but she had a powerful reason to push through – because her job was on the line. Kaelyn Loes is now responsible for content for The ONE Thing and she's been responsible for helping to shape the strategy for how we help all of you live the surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results.

 

This coming weekend, people all over the world will be pressing RESET – and we invite you to join us! It all starts by going to the1thing.com/RESET

Around this time of year, things can start to get a little crazy.

 

We all start the year with certain goals, but life often throws us these curveballs that we don’t see coming – and, before we know it, we’re struggling to find clarity and dealing with overwhelm. But, in the midst of all of that, there’s ONE thing we can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary.

 

In this episode, Jay Papasan returns to share how you can find your focus, cut your stress, and hit reset so that you can get back on track towards completing your goals for the year – not by doing more, but by doing less.

 

Are you ready to hit the RESET button? Then check out the1thing.com/reset.

  • [17:15] How to get clarity on what is actually a priority and what you can cancel
  • [33:05] What it looks like to practice self-leadership or leadership within your organization when you’re calendar doesn’t align with your priorities

How are you 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 do you need more clarity on what you actually want? Wherever you may fall, we’re about halfway through the year and that means it’s the perfect time for a RESET to take stock of our goals and what we need to do to accomplish them this year.

Is going to the eye doctor taking too much time?

 

When you wear contacts, going to the doctor year after year, just to renew the subscription for something you wear every day, can feel like a waste of time. But you can do it on your own time, and in just minutes – now that’s vision care for the 21st century. This isn’t a replacement for your periodic full eye exam, but it will save you a lot of time and money ordering new contacts.

 

You can get $20 OFF your contacts at SimpleContacts.com/ONEthing or by entering the code “onething” at checkout.
