When you’re setting goals, do you ask yourself who in your life directly contributes to whether or not you achieve that goal?

 

No one succeeds alone – but most people try to. One of the biggest mistakes we see people making is that they set goals by themselves, then they struggle throughout the year because the most important people in their life aren’t on the same page.

 

Our guests Jake and Alyx Dreyfuss blocked off time for their first couples goal-setting retreat last year. In this episode, Jake and Alyx share the discussions they had, the changes that have occurred over the past year, and what they’re doing differently for this upcoming year.

 

If you want to learn more about what it looks like to go on your own goal-setting retreat, go to the1thing.com/event and check out what we’re doing for The ONE Thing Couples Goal-Setting Retreat in Nov. 2018.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [12:30] How you know when you aren’t on the same page with the people close to you.
  • [17:00] What has surprised Jake & Alyx since their goal-setting retreat.
  • [24:15] Why you should set goals with not just your significant other, but also your business partner and/or team.
  • [26:50] What you should avoid when you’re setting goals.
  • [27:45] How to set goals when you aren’t a natural goal setter (and why you should).

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

The ONE Thing is the surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results – it’s not the surprisingly easy truth. In this episode, you hear how challenging the process of setting goals together is... and you also hear how much it helps.

 

Who is riding shotgun with you who you can sit down with and have the deep conversations, which you might have been avoiding up until now? It’s not about negotiating for whose goal is going to win. It’s about understanding what the other person wants and asking how you can help them get it.

 

What would be possible in your life if you made a goal-setting retreat a yearly ritual?

 

Whether you choose to do it yourself or join us in Austin in Nov. 2018, go to the1thing.com/event to learn more about what it takes.

If habits decide your future and you decide your habits, what are the habits you can acquire today that will help you create your ideal future?

 

We want to help you form the power habits that will help you achieve extraordinary results, in every area of your life. That’s why we wrote The ONE Thing, that’s why we created the Living Your ONE Thing Community, and that’s why we’re sharing this conversation with someone who has built a career focused on helping others create better habits, make better decisions, and live better lives.

 

Our guest is James Clear, author of the upcoming book Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones (releasing 10/16/18), and in this episode, he will share how you can become the architect of your habits, rather than continue to be a victim of them.

 

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 sign up for our next FREE monthly webinar, head over to the1thing.com/webinars.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [3:45] How you can leverage the compound effect of getting just 1% better every day.
  • [10:05] ONE thing you can do to make forming good habits easier or unnecessary.
  • [16:40] When you fall off the habit wagon, do you have to start over?
  • [20:35] How you can utilize habits as an entry point to positive rituals & routines.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

What is that two-inch domino you CAN knock down that will help you form a power habit?

 

Sure, putting on your shoes and going out the door will not give you washboard abs – but does it make going for a run easier? It sure does!  And if you set yourself up for success by focusing on that ONE, small, two-minute action, then you will start experiencing the cumulative benefits of getting just 1% better every day.

 

If you want more help on your journey, we have some FREE resources that can help: download a 66-day calendar and/or try out a PDF version of the upcoming The ONE Thing Planner.

Want to look smart for a great price?

 

Back when Gary Keller and Jay Papasan started writing The ONE Thing, they asked, “What do we stand for?” They decided that, whatever they created, the bar for quality would be exceptionally high and whoever invested in it would receive incredible value. We still have that standard in our business, and we are always looking for other companies doing the same thing. In our search, we came across Beckett Simonon, a direct-to-consumer brand changing the way premium men’s shoes, bags, and belts are offered.

Do you feel like you could be doing more... but there’s just not enough time?


Whenever we feel like we’re running into a ceiling of achievement, when we feel like we just can’t quite do anymore, we’re just missing a person. As Gary Keller says, “No one succeeds alone.”


That’s why we’re sharing this conversation with Brindley Tucker, a KW MAPS Coach and the founder of Your Realty Leverage. But today’s episode isn’t about succeeding in real estate – it’s about being the type of person who can recruit and retain amazing talent, in whatever you do, so that you can break through whatever ceiling of achievement you perceive to be in your life.


And if you didn’t hear Brindley’s first episode, Ep 78 - How Mindset, Purpose, and Relationships Can Change Your Life in 5 Years or Less, we highly recommend listening to it as well. Her journey is truly incredible.



In this episode, you will learn...

  • [4:45] How you overcome the limiting belief that you’re not ready to bring on another person
  • [17:00] What 3 things you should be looking for in an administrative support partner
  • [21:00] How to live your ONE Thing when you are working in an administrative or support role
  • [28:20] How you can empower your support staff to live their ONE thing
  • [45:35] The importance of having a 411 with your people every week



The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

The best business owners we’ve interacted with all have the habit of constantly looking for and forming relationships with new talent – and once they’re in a relationship, it’s truly a partnership.


The ONE Thing is the language of respecting each others’ priorities. And if no one succeeds alone, then we must succeed together.


One of the biggest obstacles is your environment – so who are the five people in your environment who most need to understand this collaborative language? We suggest you share the podcast with them today. It just may make your culture that much more productive.

Gary Keller once said, “If you want to live an extraordinary life, it requires that you master something – and it only has to be ONE thing.” Geoff chose to master recruiting great people, so we know that finding the right people can be a huge challenge. That’s why we’re excited to introduce you to ZipRecruiter, a platform that finds the right job candidates for you. In fact, 80% of employers who post a job get a qualified candidate in just one day.

What if getting your priorities done was literally a matter of life and death?

 

We know that living The ONE Thing isn’t easy. Surprisingly simple, yes – but certainly not easy. Whether you’re an employee, an entrepreneur, or a stay-at-home parent, there are always things that pop up and try to pull you away from your most important priorities. Most of us have the luxury of being able to accept that and try to do better tomorrow... but what if you didn’t have that opportunity?

 

That’s the reality for our guest Steven Gendel, whose son was born prematurely and weighing under two pounds. Over the past 19 years of his life, he has had 50 neurosurgeries and there isn’t a day that goes by without a moment where he almost dies. So today we have a conversation about what it looks like to not only thrive in your career but quit your corporate job to build four businesses, while every single day knowing that one of the people who matter most to you may not actually make it through the day – a situation that forces you to get extreme clarity on your priorities.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [7:10] How you can go from living to thriving, even in a dire situation
  • [10:18] What you need to do so that your businesses can grow even if you have to spend six months in a hospital
  • [30:40] Why you need to empower the people in your world (and how to do that)

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

One of the things that impress us most about Steven is that he always shows up with a smile on his face – there’s a peace about him, and you have to wonder if it’s because he wakes up every day with true clarity on what matters most.

 

Based on what you heard today, what can you start doing differently? What are the things you’re doing today that you would stop doing, at the drop of a dime, if something happened to the people who matter most to you? Are any of your so-called priorities, in reality, just distractions?

 

What’s the ONE thing that you can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary?

 

If you want some support in answering those questions, head over to the1thing.com/event to sign up for The ONE Thing Couples Goal Setting Retreat (Nov. 17-18, 2018 in Austin, TX).

What are you trying to achieve?

 

As a listener of The ONE Thing, we know you are striving to achieve extraordinary results in a specific area of your life. The question is, how do you go from where you are today to extraordinary? We’ve learned that you have to commit to surrounding myself with people who are where you want to be, which is why we are excited to share an event called Relentless MV.

 

If you’re looking to get in a room with world-class motivators who can help you gain the mental edge to push yourself to the next level and maximize your potential, you should consider joining Geoff in Martha’s Vineyard September 28th - 30th.

What is the ONE thing to focus on for business growth?

 

We believe that ONE thing is customer loyalty – so, as we scale our business, that means our ONE thing is engaging with people like you. So we’ve been asking ourselves, how do we form a deeper, more meaningful relationship with every single one of you so that, ultimately, you become a raving fan and get a level of mastery on the content so that you can turn around and empower the people in your world?

 

While we were asking these questions, Jay walked over to his bookshelf and pulled out a book. It was Monster Loyalty: How Lady Gaga Turns Followers Into Fanatics by today’s guest Jackie Huba, and it’s transforming the way we look at our business. So today we’re going to show you how Lady Gaga was able to build this passionate fan base and what lessons you can take and apply in your businesses.

 

 

In this episode, you will learn...

  • [4:35] What is loyalty?
  • [11:35] How do you identify your one percenters?
  • [26:30] How can you can become part of the community around your business and give them something to talk about?

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

 

So, after listening to this episode, you've been armed with a foundation for growth. Now, are you willing to go on the journey to becoming a master of building customer loyalty?

 

If so, what habits do you or your business have to acquire that would make engaging those one percenters easier or unnecessary? Is it getting clear and focusing on your one percenters? Leading with your values? Building a community of those one percenters? Or generating something to talk about? Look at those four points and contrast them or compare them to what you're focusing on in your business right now. Are you focusing on the ONE thing that matters most?

 

When we look at our business, that lead domino, that if we continue to knock that down over time will lead to extraordinary results, is you.

 

If you see there is an opportunity but you’re struggling to come up with ideas for how to capitalize on it, one thing you can do first is read through Jackie’s book, Monster Loyalty, and write down 10 ways that you can implement each chapter. When you do that, you end up with this mind bank of things that you can do that will make building customer loyalty easier or unnecessary. We did this and it’s been extremely helpful.

 

And if you genuinely feel like you are one percenters for The ONE Thing, please e-mail Geoff@The1Thing.com because we're always asking, what are we doing that's actually creating that type of engagement? And we would love to have a conversation.

If you want to live an extraordinary life, you have to master something – but it only has to be ONE thing.   For many of us, mastering the ability to communicate with other people, or connect with others, is the ONE thing that will make everything else easier or unnecessary.   Today, we sit down with someone who has mastered the art of asking great questions: Susan Scott, the author of Fierce Conversations. This episode is so meaningful for us, and we think it will mean just as much for you because Susan models a Fierce Conversation live.   If you put yourself in our shoes and answer each question honestly, you will experience how profound having Fierce Conversations can be, and what will be possible if you invite more conversations like these into your relationships.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Identify a relationship in your life that is not where you want it to be; a relationship that matters to you, and is hurting.   If the conversation IS the relationship, what do your conversations have to look like moving forward so that you can feel better about where that relationship is?   Remember, this talk doesn't have to be intense or negative – it can come from a place of love, and it can be delivered with candor and care.   In this episode you will learn... [12:30] What the 4 goals of a Fierce Conversation are. [19:00] ONE thing that many business owners are doing that ruins their businesses (and their relationships). [25:15] the ONE thing you can do to make connecting on a deeper level easier. [36:30] What a Fierce Conversation sounds like.

Have you ever thought, “I just need more work-life balance?” Have you ever hustled so hard that life didn’t feel fulfilling because... well, you didn’t really have a life outside of your business?   If we fast forward to the end of our lives, will any of us think to ourselves, “I wish I just spent five more hours in the office?” No!

Why is it that some people are able to achieve extraordinary results year after year, while others work so hard without getting the results they deserve?   In this episode, we’re going to show you how ONE thing – purpose – can completely change your performance, the performance of your team, and provide everyone in your world with a greater sense of fulfillment and meaning.   To teach us why purpose is the ONE thing for building great teams and how you can go about bringing it into your everyday life, we’re talking to Don Yaeger, a nationally acclaimed inspirational speaker, longtime Associate Editor of Sports Illustrated, and author of over 30 books (eleven of which have become New York Times best sellers).   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.

[27:35] What can you do to get clarity on who you’re serving and start feeling it – right now?

What does it mean to be successful?   Gary Keller once shared an interest answer to this question: “Success is nothing more than moving from failure to failure without giving up.” And the more people we talk to, the more examples we see of that being true.   In this episode, we’re going to explore the value of failure – when paired with persistence – with Bruce Buffer, who you may know as UFC’s Voice of the Octagon.   In this episode, you will learn...

Can you imagine if all of your dreams, inspirations, and the things you wanted out of life were stripped away from you in a moment? It makes you really consider what matters most.   Our guest actually did die at the age of 20, after being hit head-on by a drunk driver at 70 MPH. After six days in a coma, he woke up only to be told he’d never walk again. Well, not only can this person walk – he’s run a 52-mile ultramarathon, built a successful business, and wrote an incredible bestselling book: The Miracle Morning. Then, after being diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia in 2016 and given a grim prognosis, he’s done the impossible again.   Today you are going to discover the story of how Hal Elrod formed a powerful morning routine that set him up for success, how the idea of a Miracle Morning has impacted the lives of over 500,000 people, and how he maintains clarity on what matters most.     In this episode, you will learn... [4:20] What The Miracle Morning is & how can it help you achieve your goals? [9:10] The lead domino that led to Hal’s success. [11:15] How you can shift from a mindset of success to a mindset of fulfillment (and why it matters). [26:55] How to align your actions with your true priorities. [30:15] What The Miracle Equation is & how it will help you achieve extraordinary results.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: If you’re listening to this show, that means you’re probably growth-minded and want more out of life, specifically as it pertains to your time. The challenge is how often are we furthering our education in something that is not our number one priority?   I love the story Hal shares about how, once he got clarity that family was truly what mattered most, he went down a road to reading and furthering his education on how to be a better father or husband before he earned the right to develop his education on running a business.   It’s so simple, but how many of us do it? Not easy – but simple. What’s the ONE simple action that you’re not taking today that, if you started taking it, would make everything else easier or unnecessary in your life?   We hope you’ll share the ONE action you’re taking with us by clicking here to leave a review in iTunes or sharing it on social media using #theONEthing.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more at halelrod.com Connect with Hal: Facebook | Twitter Join The Miracle Morning Community on Facebook Listen: Achieve Your Goal with Hal Elrod Get your own copy of Hal’s Miracle Morning books Download The Way of Life app   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

Do you wish there was someone in your world willing to hold you accountable?   Most of us want someone in our life who has a vision of what’s possible for us and is willing to take a stand for our greatness, even when we’re fighting for our limitations. Tim Beverlin found that person – and he found it in the form of a five-year-old girl.   In this episode, Tim shares his own 66-day journey so you can see what it looks like to leverage accountability and form that first power habit – and how weaving purpose into all of this can take your results to an even higher level.   In this episode, you will learn...

Are you limiting the possibilities of anyone in your world?   We believe that leadership is teaching people how to think so that they can get what they need when they need it – but too often, we limit those around us, especially when it comes to creativity. However, achieving extraordinary results, even if you’re not an artist or don’t consider yourself creative, requires a level of unfettered creativity.   Todd Henry, host of The Accidental Creative, joins this episode to share how we can stop putting up these roadblocks and start allowing the people around us to do their most important – and most creative – work.     In this episode, you will learn... [6:20] How you can support your people’s creativity by helping them protect their time. [10:00] How you can maintain trust with your team (or, more accurately, avoid losing trust). [21:20] What you can do to create challenges that stimulate creativity, for yourself and your team.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Look at your normal day, look at how you have been investing your time, and ask yourself: Am I currently setting myself up to get my most important work done and create my best work?   Based on that, what’s the ONE thing you can do that will make creating extraordinary work easier or unnecessary?   You might come up with a BIG answer. If that’s the case, keep asking yourself the clarifying question – what’s the ONE thing I can do that will make achieving that easier or unnecessary – until you’ve identified a single action, a two-inch domino, that you CAN knock down every day.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more at accidentalcreative.com Connect with Todd: ToddHenry.com | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Listen to Geoff on The Accidental Creative: accidentalcreative.com/podcasts/ac/the-one-thing-with-geoff-woods Want to help us reinvent the planner?

Can you imagine a habit so powerful that it was worth investing $100,000,000 to acquire it?   Our guest, Keith Cunningham, joins us for a two-part interview because he literally paid that tuition – but he learned a lot from losing $100MM, and built habits that allowed him to make that money back, plus some.   Now Keith is traveling around the world teaching others how they can acquire this ONE habit that will make everything else in their business life easier or unnecessary, and he wrote a book sharing what he learned titled The Road Less Stupid. We’re studying him closely to see what we can learn and apply in our own business, and Geoff is on a 66-day challenge to make this a power habit that sticks.   Want to win a FREE signed copy of The Road Less Stupid?

How do you think about creating wealth… or do you even think about it?   In this episode, we reveal the mindset required to create a net worth of $20M, $100M, or even more. The people we are talking about today did not inherit their money – they just think differently about wealth creation.   To teach us about this mindset, we are talking to Richard C. Wilson, CEO of the Family Office Club Association, the largest community in the industry with offices that manage in excess of $1 Trillion in Assets Under Management.     In this episode, you will learn... [9:30] The strategic habits that can make your someday vision a reality. [13:50] How to identify what you should be focusing on learning. [23:00] What Richard’s clients focus on to create a long-term competitive advantage. [26:50] Where you should invest your funds. [32:30] The ONE thing you can do, over time, to make an executive team opportunity easier or unnecessary.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: The people who achieve extraordinary financial success, in Richard’s experience, didn’t get there through diversification – they got there through focus and planning.   They understood what the big, long-term goal was and they made sure their actions, every day, were aligned and in integrity with their vision.   Of everything you heard in this episode, what’s the ONE thing you can do to make achieving that lifestyle easier or unnecessary? Think BIG, and then go really small.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more at familyoffices.com Connect with Richard: Twitter | LinkedIn Want to join Jay & Geoff for the very first The ONE Thing Mid-Year Reset Retreat (June 23rd & 24th in Austin, TX)?

Are you doing the same thing every day, working hard, without actually living your purpose?   Sometimes it takes something catastrophic to compel us to do something different, or to take an action that we previously didn’t have the confidence to take.   For Jeff Sanders, host of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast, it took being hospitalized for him to realize that most of the things on his calendar simply didn’t matter. Jeff completely changed the way he manages his time, and the experience prompted him write a book called The Free Time Formula. In this episode, Jeff shares how he schedules his time, how he chooses what to invest his time in, and what you can do to begin taking action today.     In this episode you will learn... [4:40] How to look at your calendar in an entirely new way. [7:00] Why you don’t need to (and shouldn’t) fill every time block on your schedule with a task. [14:10] How you can optimize your time by utilizing your strengths. [18:00] How to begin auditing your time & identifying the changes you need to make. [20:40] The ONE thing that makes everything easier or unnecessary, when it comes to acting in order of priority.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We urge you to take Jeff’s story as an opportunity to pause and reflect; if you continue to do what you have been doing, every day for five years, what will your life look like? Are you living the life you want to be living?   If you want to make a change, first look at the seven circles: your spirituality, physical health, personal life, relationships, jobs, business, and finances. Now choose just one area and ask the focusing question: What is the smallest domino that you CAN knock over that will make everything else easier or unnecessary, in your world?   Keep asking that question until the answer is something so small, so doable, that it almost seems too easy. Think big, but go small – and prove to yourself that you can knock that lead domino down today.   Links & Tools From This Episode Connect with Jeff: jeffsanders.com | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram Listen: The 5 AM Miracle Podcast Read: The Free Time Formula   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!
