Are you living a life by default or a life by design?

Most people go through their lives by default: They wake up, check email, show up to the office, check email again, go to their first meeting, check email again, etc. And by the end of the day, they wonder why they didn’t get anything done. Day after day, this is how things play out, and they get to where they are by default — without intention or design.

Billionaires do things differently. They imagine what they want their lives to look like someday, even if they don’t know. They push past “I don’t know” and search for an answer. You have to think big, go small, and trust the dominos will fall — and in this episode, we share the models you can follow along the journey.

 

If you are ready to take action, we encourage you to go to the1thing.com/setmygoal and you can learn more about implementing these frameworks.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [02:21] Priorities and values from the community
  • [12:18] Pro tips of the GPS
  • [17:15] Going small and having a relationship with one category
  • [22:42] Front-loading your goals

Do you ever find yourself going through the motions? Operating as if you’re on auto-pilot?

Sometimes we get so used to the way things are that we forget to imagine the potential for the way things could be if we set our mind to it — if we asked the big questions and took the time to search for those answers. As a result, we settle into what’s comfortable in exchange for what’s possible.

No one achieves greatness on auto-pilot. So many people are living their lives by default instead of by design. When you go through life by default you’re committing to something ordinary. You’re choosing good enough when a life of impact, legacy, and abundance could be available to you. We’re going to dive into why goal setting to the now matters, the models that make accomplishing big goals possible, and unpacking the limiting beliefs that could be stopping you.

If you feel like you would like to take action, we encourage you to go to the1thing.com/setmygoal and you can learn more about implementing these frameworks.

While we’ve all been forced to change the way we work and get things done, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed — the need to have conversations with the people that matter most, conversations that enrich our relationships.

While we’ve all been working from home, this has presented its own set of circumstances. We’ve been closer to some people, which could create conflict, and knowing how to have conversations to enrich that relationship may be a mystery to some people. And since we have been more distant from our teams and our customers, we need to figure out how to have those conversations as well.

That’s why we reached out to our friends at Fierce Conversations. Their model for how to have fierce conversations is more relevant than ever. You’re going to meet their Senior Vice President of Learning, Ronna Detrick. You’re going to hear about what it was like for their organization to pivot, finding her ONE Thing, and dive deep into the fierce conversation model.

 

If you find yourself struggling with clarity on what your goals and priorities are, visit the1thing.com/training and learn more about how we are facilitating our Goal Setting Retreat virtually this year.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [04:34] What fierce conversations are
  • [07:48] How Fierce Conversations are pivoting during this time
  • [13:26] Finding Ronna’s ONE Thing
  • [24:48] Using the fierce conversation models
  • [30:12] How to start having fierce conversations
  • [35:21] Enriching relationships

Do you think you could turn your life around in just 12 months?

Every single one of us is constantly looking up, imagining a future, and asking ourselves how we actually get there. How do we bridge the gap? How do we ensure that the things that show up on our calendar this week put us in alignment with the type of life that we want to be living?

This will set us up to come together at the end of the year and cast a vision for the next year. To learn more, visit the1thing.com/setmygoals.

Are you holding on too tightly to the way things used to be?

With all that is going on today, there is so much uncertainty. A marked lack of clarity. As business owners, what are some of the things we should be thinking about right now? Don’t let the past, and your attachment to it, stop you from casting a new vision that will bring you into the future.

To help you get clarity, we sat down with past guest Keith Cunningham. He is one of the most important business voices of our time because he challenges us to look at our businesses and identify what opportunities we have today that we didn’t have in the past — and that’s just what so many people need at this moment.

Many of us are facing the challenge of having our goals become irrelevant or unattainable in an instant. We have a second interview with Keith Cunningham where he walks through in detail what he did when he was at rock bottom to build himself back up — way back. That will be shared during our virtual goal-setting retreats this fall. If you want to learn more about that, you can go to the1thing.com/setmygoals.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [09:56] Strengthening your ability to make decisions
  • [14:55] How we should be thinking to remain cautious
  • [24:12] Why we need to be willing to reinvent ourselves
  • [27:45] The three audits every business owner needs to be doing
  • [32:25] The ONE question you can ask yourself to move forward

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.
