What were you taught about setting goals as a kid?

 

If we’re taught anything, we’re usually taught to set goals around New Year’s. But now, as we head into the last quarter of the year, is actually the perfect time to start considering our goals for the upcoming year.

 

Gary Keller and Jay Papasan show us that, if you want to have great success, you have to have a bigger view of time — and you have to understand that the actions you take today may not have results until days or months down the road. So, in this episode, Jay and Wendy Papasan are going to share how they’ve been setting goals for years and how you can apply these simple practices into your own relationship and/or business, even if the other people in your world aren’t goal setters.

 

If you want to join us at our Goal-Setting Retreat Nov. 9th & 10th in Austin, TX, you can learn more at the1thing.com/event. And if you can’t make it to Austin this year, we’ll help you host your own retreat with the Kick Ass Guide® to Your Couples Goal Setting Retreat and the Goal Setting Retreat Master Course.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [8:30] What a couple’s goal-setting retreat looks like
  • [12:10] The importance of getting in alignment with your life or business partner
  • [21:45] How to enlist the support of someone who is resistant to goal setting
  • [40:20] What you can do if there is a struggle around who will lead your couple’s goal-setting retreat

Where are you on the journey of TIME?

 

We start by treading to keep our heads above water. Then we start implementing some of the systems, followed by eventually mastering those systems. And towards the end of the journey, eventually, we will all want to turn around to empower others — especially our family.

 

Today, we are going to meet a couple, Brock and Angie Nyborg, who were introduced to The ONE Thing just over a year ago. We really respect that they didn’t just consume the content, but backed it with action — and in this episode, you’re going to hear how they’re life and family have changed over the past year.

So ask yourself, it time to take off some of your hats?

The ONE Thing is about the surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results — but anyone who has tried knows that simple doesn’t mean easy.

 

Life throws us curveballs. We lose clarity on what The ONE Thing is. We struggle to protect our time blocks when life happens. We are taking on more and looking for higher levels of achievement, but the models and systems we have in place are being stressed. How, in those moments, can we get back on track?

 

Today, our guest is Chris Hofmann, who is a member of our Living Your ONE Thing Community. He was well on his way to building a career as a successful executive, counterbalancing that with a great family life, when his world was turned upside down by a series of strokes. Before he knew it, simple tasks were no longer so simple — but he used The ONE Thing to put his life back together.

 

If you want to join Chris in the Living Your ONE Thing Community, you can try it for FREE for two weeks at the1thing.com/community.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [4:30] What it’s like when it feels like almost every area of your life is reset to zero
  • [8:20] What happens when you keep asking the focusing question until you find the smallest action you can take
  • [11:30] How to close the gap between clarity and execution
  • [14:15] How to enlist support from your team and/or family
  • [21:20] What it looks like when your team adopts The ONE Thing mindset — and what changes
  • [35:20] How to stay consistent on your journey to Living Your ONE Thing

Do you feel overwhelmed?

 

We live in a fast-paced world with a lot of expectations, and as a result, it’s easy to fall into the trap of overwhelm — and as we all know, it’s extremely easy to fall off the wagon and stop living the principles of The ONE Thing when life happens.

 

But our guest, Tiffany Cavegn, shows us that you can keep living Your ONE Thing even when everything is falling apart around you, if you know how to leverage support. Tiffany has been dealing with so much in her life lately, between supporting a chronically ill child and running two businesses, but she’s been soldiering down the road to mastery in spite of it all and the results have been extraordinary.

 

If you want to join Tiffany in the Living Your ONE Thing Community, you can try it for FREE for two weeks at the1thing.com/community.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [6:20] How Tiffany started living The ONE Thing and found her first domino
  • [12:00] What you can do to pick yourself up after you stumble
  • [22:30] Why it’s not about doing Your ONE Thing — it’s about asking yourself the focusing question, over and over again
