Wouldn’t it be great if you could fire up a time machine and travel to the end of this pandemic? Better yet, what if you could transform to an extraordinary future where you not only accomplish all your big goals, but you achieve them without stress or overwhelm?

This may sound like a fantasy, but it’s more achievable than you think. When you practice mental time travel and get clarity on where you want to go, you can rewind the steps to where you are now and devise a plan to get there. This is what we call “goal setting to the now.”

In this episode, we’re going to walk through what this concept has done in our lives. By setting five year goals and then really big “someday” goals, and aligning your actions today with those goals, you will have a simple plan to follow that gets you closer to the life you want every day.

If this sounds interesting to you, you can join our annual Goal Setting Retreat by visiting the1thing.com/setmygoals.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [02:57] The first time we did goal setting to the now
  • [07:55] How to get your significant other on board
  • [09:12] Using goals to determine your activities
  • [14:02] The power of long-term thinking
  • [20:31] Getting clarity on your “someday goals”
  • [23:30] Living life by design

Is your relationship moving forward or are you caught in a predictable loop of business as usual?

There’s nothing wrong with your day-to-day routine when everything is fine. But ask yourself: Is fine where extraordinary happens? Sometimes you’re at a point in your life where you don’t have a specific challenge to overcome—and that can be a good thing—and yet, sometimes, it can feel like you’re meant for something more. How do you take back control of your relationship and your life?

Meet Monica and Chris Tschantz. They were living a good life, and everything was fine. But behind the scenes, they were overworked, lacked purposeful connection, and struggled to find clarity for what they wanted in their life. One conversation they had at The ONE Thing Goal Setting Retreat started them down the path to increased happiness, extreme alignment, and renewed clarity on what mattered most—and what they needed to let go.

The extraordinary outcome of a small, two-day investment was that they got their life back. This is what becomes possible when you take time to become aligned with your most important relationships. If you want to do the same, join us at our the1thing.com/setmygoals.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [02:24] Being introduced to The ONE Thing.
  • [06:25] Aligning your behavior around your goals
  • [15:58] Lessons learned from the couples retreat
  • [21:09] What to do when your goals aren’t the same

Socrates said, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

The truth is that change is hard—especially uninvited change. It is often that change that pushes you in directions you would have otherwise never explored, and that’s where growth happens. What becomes possible if, when ushered into new territory, you quickly reset your vision on what you are creating and let go of what existed before?

Donna Miller’s proven business model of over 25 years was suddenly tested in ways that she couldn’t have imagined. As she was forced to double-down and reexamine every area of what once was, she did more than rebuild her business strategy — she also pivoted her leadership approach, and the results have been extraordinary.

 

If you’re interested in learning more about how to set goals for the upcoming year and want to check out our upcoming Virtual Goal Setting Retreat, visit the1thing.com/setmygoals.

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [02:00] What Donna did to prepare her team to adopt The ONE Thing model
  • [10:01] The ONE Thing Donna did to challenge her team to show up differently
  • [18:28] How finding clarity on your values fuels your business
  • [22:26] Planning ahead for next year
