Why are you doing what you are doing?   The ONE Thing is about teaching the surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results, but many of us fail to ask ourselves that simple question. For many of us, we do what we do to create moments that matter with the people that matter... but, too often, we lose sight of these relationships.   We are dedicating the entire month of February, in our Living Your ONE Thing Community, to creating extraordinary relationships in four specific areas: wealth determiners, loved ones, friends, and mentors. This episode will give you a taste of that, because whether you're a member or not we want you to understand the journey that we're going on so that you can go on it as well.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: If you can only choose one area discussed in this episode to focus on – relationships with wealth determiners, loved ones, friends, or mentors – which do you need to focus on most?   Then, what is the ONE relationship that you can form or enrich that will make everything else easier or unnecessary for you?   If you'd like us to be there as your accountability partner along the way, go to the1thing.com/membership.   In this episode you will learn... [3:40] What questions you should ask yourself about your relationship with the people who determine your wealth and the people whose wealth you determine. [8:30] ONE thing you can do to focus more on the relationships with your loved ones. [12:20] Why you should stop acting like an entrepreneur when it comes to managing your friendships and start getting purposeful about it. [15:00] How to nurture relationships with your mentors and coaches. [17:40] How you can decide what ONE relationship needs your focus now.   Links & Tools From This Episode If you'd like to join us for support on your journey, go to the1thing.com/membership or text the word ACCOUNTABILITY to the number 33444.

Life offers so much – but time is limited, so every day you have to wake up and make choices.   Unfortunately, many of us choose to try to do it all. We have massive ambitions and take massive action but, at the end of the day, we don't feel like we actually got anything done.   Instead of trying to go wide, we have the opportunity to go deep; to be selective about what we choose to learn, have, and do. To help you take advantage of that opportunity, we are sharing this conversation with Eric Barker, author of Barking Up the Wrong Tree: The Surprising Science Behind Why Everything You Know About Success Is (Mostly) Wrong.   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.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Think about a time in your life when you didn't feel fulfilled in your professional life, and you decided to move on.   Was it because one of the four key factors of success was missing? Happiness Achievement Significance Legacy   When you reflect on where you are today, how are you doing in those four areas? What can you do differently?   In this episode you will learn... [5:20] What the 4 key factors of success are. [26:25] How you can strategically utilize failure to improve your life by using "little bets." [36:00] Why you should be a (strategic) quitter.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more on Eric’s blog: bakadesuyo.com Connect with Eric: Facebook | Twitter [FREE Training] How to Start Time Blocking TODAY!

When in your life were you trained how to communicate with the people who matter most to you?   Many of us have never received this kind of training or received it far too late in life – yet, almost all of us have experienced some kind of conflict in our long-term relationships (whether that be with a significant other, business partner, boss, or employee).   That's why we're sharing this conversation with Dr. Matt Townsend, author, radio host, and relationship expert, who will teach you how to transform the relationships that matter most to you by cutting through the smoke to solve the real problems at hand.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: What's one relationship that really matters to you – and, if you're honest with yourself, is hurting?   Are you showing up in those interactions genuinely caring about the other person first, before considering your agenda?   Based on that answer, what is the ONE thing you can do that will allow you to show that person that you care, and make them feel cared for?   In this episode you will learn... [5:30] How you can start training in communication skills for relationships. [8:40] How you can recognize the smoke (or the pattern) and start identifying what the real fire in your relationships are. [12:00] The 7 basic needs that need to be met in every interaction with another human (S.T.A.R.V.E.D.). [16:30] Why it's important to show up in your relationships with no agenda, prepared to be there and nowhere else (especially on a S.T.A.R.V.E.D. issue). [25:30] The ONE thing you can do that will completely transform your relationships (and what will prevent you from doing this).   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more at MattTownsend.com Connect with Matt: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | YouTube Read: Starved Stuff: Feeding the 7 Basic Needs of Healthy Relationships by Matt Townsend In the month of February, we are dedicating our Living Your ONE Thing membership platform to transforming your relationships.

Gary Keller once said that the definition of a wealthy person is someone who has the passive income to fund their life's purpose.   Based on that definition, we have to do two things to live a wealthy life: find our purpose, and then build a business that can fund it passively.   Does building that kind of business sound far-fetched? Well, Joseph Gozlan joins us today to show you why it's not. This is an incredible case study of how someone just like you found clarity on their purpose and then boiled that down to the ONE thing he needed to achieve extraordinary results.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Your purpose determines your priorities, your priorities determine your productivity, and your productivity determines your results.   So how can you get clear on the type of impact that you want to make, and what type of business will you have to build to fund that impact?   Based on your answers to those questions, go through the goal setting to now exercise. You can find this exercise in our FREE My Purpose Handbook at the1thing.com/mypurpose.   In this episode you will learn... [4:00] How you can get clarity on your purpose. [12:55] What you can do to protect your time (because, inevitably, life will try to get in the way). [21:00] The ONE thing you can do if you feel lost, stuck, or frustrated.   Links & Tools From This Episode Connect with Joseph at ebgacquisitions.com Need help finding clarity on your purpose?

Are you looking for a way to achieve extraordinary results in your life, but falling short?   We believe that achieving the extraordinary all comes down to how you manage your time. And, despite our best intentions, most of us not making the most of our time. This isn't due to a lack of work ethic or clarity – we are just not physically prepared to show up as the highest version of ourselves.   Shawn Stevenson is a sleep expert, the author of Sleep Smarter, and host of The Model Health Show, and he joins the show because sleep has a dramatic impact on our performance (whether we want it to or not). We discuss simple ways that you can sleep smarter, boost your productivity, and achieve more.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: If you can only implement ONE thing covered in today's episode, what is the one thing that you CAN do that will make getting better sleep easier?   Consider starting by being in bed during the “money time,” between 10 PM and 2 AM, or removing the blue-tinted screens from your life after the sun goes down (you can use f.lux to enable this on a desktop computer).   In this episode you will learn... [3:20] The ONE thing you can do to start sleeping smarter. [12:00] The EASIEST domino you can knock down to get better quality sleep. [14:50] How you can leverage the "money time" to sleep more efficiently.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more at TheShawnStevensonModel.com Connect with Shawn: Twitter | Facebook | Instagram Read: Sleep Smarter Listen: The Model Health Show Remove the blue tint from your computer with f.lux: justgetflux.com --   Get your FREE audiobook copy of Sleep Smarter!   If you enjoy listening to podcasts, you probably also enjoy listening to audiobooks, and that’s why Audible is sponsoring this episode.   If you go to audible.com/onething, you can create a free account and get a free credit for your first book, which could be Sleep Smarter. --   Production & Development for The ONE Thing Podcast by Podcast Masters

After reading The ONE Thing, have you struggled to prioritize and implement it?   You're not alone. One of the most common concerns we hear from people who have read the book is that they love the idea, but they struggle to find their ONE thing, and then do it before anything else.   Today we're sharing a wake-up call: the incredible story of Tammy Verduzco, who found her ONE thing and then took action – despite being laid up in the hospital after massive complications with surgery. If she can do it, you can do it too... if you stop making excuses.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Tammy reminds us that if you don't find and stick to Your ONE Thing, the only person you're letting down is yourself... and why would you want to do that?   We all have baggage, we all have problems, and we all have the same opportunity to create an extraordinary life. Will you hold yourself accountable for making that your standard, or will you make excuses?   What do you need to get so committed to finding Your ONE Thing that you won't let anything else get in the way?   In this episode you will learn... [1:20] How focus produces extraordinary results – not just in business, but also in your health. [16:55] How you can start finding clarity.

If you ask Gary Keller what inspired him to write The ONE Thing, he will tell you that it's about living a life of no regret. How can we make the most out of our limited time here on Earth, and live a life that is extraordinary?   We believe that living a life without regret really comes down to making moments that matter.   Today's guest, Jon Vroman, was inspired by this idea. He founded the Front Row Foundation and wrote the #1 bestselling book The Front Row Factor, and he has dedicated the rest of his life to helping others, especially people who are fighting for their lives, create moments that matter.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Many of us tell ourselves the story that we can't do something because we imagine the person we were yesterday and not the person we are today – or who we will be tomorrow.   We believe that you can achieve far more than you believe is possible if you are willing to help raise other people up.   So out of everything that you heard in this episode, what is the ONE thing you can do that will allow you to help others create moments that matter?   In this episode you will learn... [7:00] How you can start experiencing moments that matter every single day. [14:50] The difference between wishful thinking and hope (and why hope is so powerful). [21:40] How you can make moments that matter for yourself – and others.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more about the Front Row Foundation Read: The Front Row Factor: Transform Your Life with The Art of Moment Making Listen: The Front Row Factor podcast --   Production & Development for The ONE Thing Podcast by Podcast Masters

We don't just want to pump you up with this podcast – we want to ask the tough questions so that you can look in the mirror and be more accountable for your results. We think this is why people who live The ONE Thing achieve so much.   Today we're sharing a conversation with one of you, Kathy Ver Eecke, who was taking massive action and getting things done... until life got in the way. If you put yourself in Kathy's shoes and ask yourself the same questions, you will experience, first hand, what accountability feels like.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We believe that your potential is so much higher than you think is possible – and we will fight, every single day, to get you to those possibilities.   And sometimes that means having tough conversations.   If you are not living Your ONE Thing, ask yourself the same questions that we asked Kathy. What is the ONE thing you can do to get (back) on track?   In this episode you will learn... [5:30] How you can start living Your ONE Thing [27:30] What you can do to get back on track towards your goals after you lose focus.

The beginning of a new year is a perfect time to look at your business and your life and ask yourself a simple question: what do I want to do differently?   Building momentum begins with a good strategy, so we want to pull the curtain back and share how we planned our year, and the specific things that we're going to do differently this year so that we can achieve extraordinary results.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Out of everything that we covered in this episode – slowing down to make the right plan, evolving vs. reinventing, daring to take the model and evolve it, or moving from E to P – where is your opportunity for growth?   What is the ONE most potent step you can take to move forward with momentum?   In this episode you will learn... [1:50] Why you need to slow down and block off some time so that you can create the right plan. [8:00] Why you should evolve your strategies instead of reinventing the wheel.

If you are hitting a ceiling of achievement in your life, then you are missing a person – either in the form of a mentor or leverage.   Today we are focusing on the leverage side; the people who can take things off of your plate so that you can focus on the 20% work that will allow you to achieve extraordinary results.   In episode 50, we talked to today's guest, Gene Rivers, about how he and his wife run nine successful businesses, while still finding time to vacation four months out of the year and devote time to their family every day. Gene is only able to do this because he leverages the people around him and coaches them to achieve more – and today he shares how you can do that too.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: After you listen to the episode, take a moment to reflect on these questions:   – What are you currently doing that's helping your people achieve their life goals – and what are you doing that's stopping your people from achieving their goals?   – Many of us want to be liked, and because of that, we avoid tough conversations that should happen with the people in our world. Are you contributing to their goals, or are you contaminating them by allowing them to remain in your world when it's not the right fit?   – Are you clear on what the standards for performance in your organization are? Are you bringing focus and accountability to the actions and metrics that need to be completed to achieve the goal?   – Finally, what is the ONE thing you can do that will allow you to show up as a better leader and coach your people to their possibilities?   In this episode you will learn... [7:50] Why you need empire builders to your team (and how you can identify them). [15:25] How you can leverage a weekly checkup to create more accountability. [28:30] How you can set everyone in your team up for success (and how you can help people who aren't succeeding).   Links & Tools From This Episode Connect with Gene at GeneRivers.info Do you want a model for weekly accountability?

When were you taught how to set and achieve your goals?   Most of us were never taught this valuable life skill in school, but it's not too late to learn now.   In this episode, New York Times Bestselling Author Michael Hyatt joins us to share his new book, which will help you make 2018 Your Best Year Ever.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: What is the one thing you can take action on that will allow you to achieve your goals for this year - and will you commit to actually taking action?   It all starts with identifying the motivation behind the goal; WHY do these goals matter to you?   Your WHY needs to be so big that it compels you to take action, even when you don't want to.   In this episode you will learn... [4:30] Why you sometimes need to dream BIG if you want to get clarity on your future goals. [6:50] How this ONE limiting belief holds back business owners and leaders (and how you can crush it).

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).

We're always on our own road to mastery, trying to figure out how we can serve you better. So, anytime someone leaves the Living Your ONE Thing community, we make it a point to ask them a few questions.   Today we're sharing one of those conversations, a chat with Kerri Mees, because it is so powerful. We've come to realize that accountability starts by looking in the mirror, and no podcast or program will make a difference in your life if you are not, first and foremost, the type of person who chooses to be accountable.   What type of person will you choose to be?     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: You can change the direction of your future – if you are willing to accept that you can have anything you want by, first and foremost, narrowing your focus and doing the things that matter most.   We believe that you can do this. You just have to get up and practice every single day – and it only gets easier with support.   If you want to take the next step, we are here for you in the Living Your ONE Thing Community, and we will be your accountability partners. You can join by going to the1thing.com/membership.   In this episode you will learn... [3:20] Why asking for help is an essential part of the road to mastery. [9:20] Why you need to manage your expectations for immediate results (if you want to achieve lasting success). [26:20] Why you shouldn't give up, even if the process is hard or boring.   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

Everyone has at least one person who truly matters to them... and many of us are doing ONE thing that is harming that relationship.   In The ONE Thing, Gary and Jay lay out the seven most important areas of your life: spirituality, physical health, personal, relationships, job, business, and finances. We often set goals around our jobs, businesses, and finances... but those are rubber balls, and if we drop them they can bounce back. Spirituality, physical health, personal life, and relationships are glass balls – if you drop one of them, it will shatter.   Lewis Howes is the New York Times Bestselling author of The School of Greatness and The Mask of Masculinity, and he joins the show to share why you are hurting your most valuable relationships and the ONE thing you can do to turn it all around.   We recorded this conversation as part of our monthly ONE Thing webinar series.

Do you wake up every single day intentionally adding value to specific relationships?   Too many of us take our relationships for granted, and we aren't approaching our relationships with a strategy – but nurturing the relationships that matter most is an under-appreciated and transformative power habit.   Steve Sims has built a legacy out of forming relationships at a very high level. He is the author of Bluefishing: The Art of Making Things Happen and the Founder of Bluefish, a concierge service for the elite of the elite. If you want to visit the Titanic, get married by the Pope, or have dinner at the footsteps of Michelangelo's David while being serenaded by Andrea Bocelli, Steve is the man who can make it happen – and he can do that because of the relationships he has formed.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We want you to think intentionally about the people in your life. Write down a list of everyone you like, and if you write down a name that you actually don't like you will feel it in your gut. Put a star next to that person.   Then ask yourself a few questions about that person:   – What role do they serve (if they serve one at all)? – What should that relationship look like moving forward? Maybe there shouldn't be a relationship at all. – What's the ONE thing you can do, such that by doing it, will allow you to shift that relationship?   Have this conversation with yourself and take action – because, truly, you cannot afford not to.   In this episode you will learn... [15:00] How you can overcome limiting beliefs (and why your limiting beliefs keep Steve in business). [18:20] ONE simple strategy you can use to approach anyone and set yourself apart. [32:30] Why the most successful individuals are usually looking for mentees (especially entrepreneurs). [38:15] How you can use The Chug Test to assess your relationships and remove people who shouldn't be in your life. [45:20] Why failure is a mindset – and how you can re-write the story that you've failed.   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!
