When the smartest people in the world are designing apps to capture your attention, how do you choose mindfulness?

It’s not a secret that we live in a culture that’s inundated with distractions, more so than ever in history, and that means we need some modern mindfulness techniques to block it all out and be more present.

Luckily, Cory Allen will walk you through simple and clear ways to start getting present in the moment. You will learn how to be more mindful, reduce stress, and develop more mental clarity around what matters most to you — and our hope is that you will choose ONE thing that you can put in action immediately after listening to this episode.

We recorded this conversation as part of our monthly ONE Thing webinar series. Every month, we feature an incredible author so that you can learn directly from them and ask questions. If you want to watch the second half of this interview or sign up for our next FREE monthly webinar, head over to the1thing.com/webinars.

Do you usually start your year with a financial goal?

Most people do, whether that’s saving more money, getting on a budget, or increasing their net worth. Whatever it is, though, you have to do certain things in order to be successful.

In this episode, Anthony ONeal shares the story of how he did everything he was told to do to pursue the American Dream — working hard in school to get into a good college so that he could get a good job — but then life happened. He got kicked out of school and ended up homeless, wondering if he was better off dead or alive. Today, you may know Anthony as one of the Dave Ramsey personalities or as the author of the Wall Street Journal #1 bestselling book Debt-Free Degree

Pay attention to the mindset he adopted, the strategies he used, and the choices he made — because if that worked for him, it’ll help you achieve whatever financial goal you have this year.

In this episode, you will learn...

-[2:45] How Anthony transformed his life

-[9:00] What you can do now if you lack clarity around how you can achieve your goals or what you should do next

-[16:00] What happens when you start saying NO

Who is supporting you in achieving your goals?

A lot of us are struggling with this silently, but few of us are willing to stand up and ask for help. We hear about our friends’ successes and we see them on social media, and it creates this unrealistic expectation of what the journey forward looks like.

 

In this episode, we’re talking to two people who were willing to raise their hands and ask for help. Kristina Modares and Eric Mann are in a relationship, but they’re also both starting companies. So they got busy, their personal and business lives got chaotic, and they were experiencing some very real stress over the past year. But by coming together and leveraging the tools of The ONE Thing — and each other — they’re preparing to remain connected and grow together in 2020, regardless of what life throws their way.

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [3:30] What it looks like when you start engaging your individual goals as a team, even when you don’t all identify as goal setters
  • [9:30] ONE thing you can do to set yourself up for success in a goal-setting retreat
  • [20:40]What you can accomplish after just one year of goal setting as a couple

Do you need a surprise to give one of the men in your life?

Geoff’s wife had been encouraging him to upgrade his wardrobe for months now, and he did it at MacWeldon.com. The shopping experience was super easy, he got clothes that work for both working out and work, and he found a pair of the comfiest lounge pants he’s ever tried on. It’s a super simple shopping experience, but the quality is something you just have to experience yourself.

Do you think of goal setting as something you do alone?

Most of us, if we were taught how to set goals at all, were just taught tactics like using a calendar or planner. And as a result, most of us have been trying to succeed by ourselves for years. But we work in teams, we live with families, and we can all accomplish more if we acknowledge that no one succeeds alone.

So, in this episode, we want to share a little bit more about our process for preparing for the Couples Goal Setting Retreating, the best practices that we’ve developed within our organization, and what’s worked for us.

 

This is your last chance to sign up for the Couples Goal-Setting Retreat! Whether you attend as a couple, as business partners, as a team, or as an individual, we will have a track specific to you.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

-[3:00] The most common challenges that teams and organizations face when it comes to setting goals

-[6:40] The purpose of a goal

-[9:40] What goal setting should look like in organizations

-[16:00] The role of a leader in the goal-setting process
