Have you ever found that the principles we discuss in this show and in the book sound easy – but then, in practice, end up being really difficult to make a consistent part of your life?

 

We get it, and we know that stumbling along the journey to living Your ONE Thing can feel isolating. That’s why our #1 priority this year has been nurturing the Living Your ONE Thing community that supports people who need more accountability; who need support when they feel lost or alone.

 

Each month, the community comes together for a live coaching call and discuss how we can be more intentional in living the tools and bring a higher level of accountability into our lives. Because we just wrapped up our three-part accountability series, we want to share one of these coaching calls with you so that you can see what this accountability looks like in action and what it looks like to live the 80/20 rule.

 

If the Living Your ONE Thing community is something you’re interested in, you can try it for FREE for two weeks at the1thing.com/community.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [3:30] What Gary Keller has to say about mastery
  • [5:20] The three commitments
  • [6:25] What you need to know about the 80/20 rule
  • [9:50] How to be more intentional about mastering The ONE Thing

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?

What does it mean to have accountability in your life?

Because there are different levels of accountability. We can hold ourselves accountable by using tools like a 411, 66-Day Challenge, or The ONE Thing Planner. We can bring accountability into our world by recruiting an accountability partner. Then, when we want the highest level of accountability possible, we have to look to an expert – to a coach.

A lot of people ask us what it means to have a coach, how to know if it’s the right fit, and how to get the most out of that relationship. So, today, we sit down to learn the answers to those questions from Charlotte Savoy, who both embodies accountability in her businesses and coaches other people on The ONE Thing through MAPS Business Coaching.

 

If you think this sounds like a good fit for you, you can learn more about our Get a ONE Thing Coach, Become a ONE Thing Coach, or Living Your ONE Thing Community.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [2:30] What is a coach?
  • [5:55] How do you know when it’s time to bring a coach into your world?
  • [13:25] The definition of accountability and what it looks like in a coaching partnership.
  • [23:40] How do you know if a coach is the right coach for you?
  • [32:00] How to own the relationship with your coach and ensure you get maximum value from it.
  • [49:25] The five coaching models 
  • [59:35] What you should expect from a coach.

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
