What does it look like when times get hard and you’re not sure if you’re going to be able to achieve your goal anymore? How do you stay committed and achieve the goal?This episode is a case study about goals. Not about setting goals but having a relationship with them. Because we don’t need new or better ways to set goals — we just need a way to create a relationship with the goals that we do have. The purpose of a goal is not to achieve a result but to be appropriate in the moment. It’s who you become along the way to achieving that goal that matters.Hal Elrod is the author of “The Miracle Morning,” but this is not about “The Miracle Morning.” This is about Hal’s goal of creating “The Miracle Morning Movie” and the story of how he had to have a relationship with that goal to weather massive setbacks. Listen to his mindset and how he stayed committed, because every single one of us has something to learn from this.If you would like to join us in setting your goals and having a relationship with them for the next year, go to the1thing.com/setmygoals.In this episode, you will learn...[03:52] What made Hal want to do more after the massive success of his book[07:30] The six practices of the Miracle Morning[11:32] How Hal started the process of making his film[20:58] The mindset of working through a curveball[28:16] Advice for having a relationship with your goalsLinks & Tools From This Episodemiraclemorningmovie.comRead: “The Miracle Morning”the1thing.com/setmygoals--How do you start up when the world is upside down?Sit Down Startup is a new weekly podcast from Zendesk.

The purpose of a goal is to be appropriate in the moment. Every year we set goals around the areas of our life that matter to us, and when we get to the end of the year we look back and say we’ll do better next year—especially around finances.The problem is that, until you learn to have a relationship with your goals, your future won’t change. When we look at some of the biggest causes of stress in our life, money often ends up at the top of the list. And almost all of us feel like we are meant for more, but we were never taught in school how to build wealth.David Greene learned to set goals for his wealth and have a relationship with them. He started out as a police officer with a dream to build wealth, and he made some crazy sacrifices to start acquiring properties—and just wait until you hear where he’s at now. You’ll be amazed when you hear The ONE Thing he did that, such by doing it, made everything else easier or unnecessary.Where do you want to be in five years? And what’s The ONE Thing you can do now, such that by doing it, everything else would become easier or unnecessary?

When we originally launched The ONE Thing podcast, we understood the importance of having weekly conversations with people who were living The ONE Thing—the areas they were succeeding in, and the areas they were struggling with. While the principles are simple, it isn’t always easy.The purpose of a goal is not the result, it’s to be appropriate in the moment. It’s to inform how you behave right now to be in alignment with your goals.This weekend, we kick off our Virtual Goal Setting Retreat for couples, and the following weekend will be the retreat for individuals and teams. You can be anywhere you want in five years as long as you’re willing to line up your dominos and knock them over. You were destined to achieve amazing things in this world, and this retreat will give you the framework to get there.To learn more, you need to go to the1thing.com/setmygoals RIGHT NOW.To learn more, and for the complete show notes, visit: the1thing.com/podcast.Links & Tools From This Episodethe1thing.com/setmygoals

As leaders, It’s easy to get stuck in the idea that we always have to have the answers—that we always have to be prepared with the perfect response to deliver wisdom to our teams. But the thing about true leadership is that what you don’t say is just as important as what you do. How you listen to your people is critical to keeping them engaged; valuing their ideas and their contributions and developing them into leaders themselves.Abe Shreve is the CEO of MAPS Business Coaching, the company that provides coaching around The ONE Thing.

We are entering the time of year where we start to set our goals for the upcoming year.The mistake people often make is that they commit to things that look attractive in the short run without understanding if it’s a distraction from where you want to go in the long run. How do we put a plan in place that honors both our short term commitments and long term goals?In this conversation, you’ll hear how Deirdre Wheatley-Liss reached out to our team because she needed some help. She discovered The ONE Thing a little over a year ago, and she started updating her 411 every week and having 411s with her team. As a result, she saw extraordinary growth in the midst of this wild and crazy year. But now she realizes that if she continues to go down the same path, she’s going to burn out. You’ll hear how she gets clarity on where she wants to be someday, and how that brings focus on what her goal needs to be for the next year.If you would like an experience like this, helping you set your goals to the now, we strongly recommend you join our Goal Setting Retreat at the1thing.com/setmygoals.In this episode, you will learn...[05:05] What happened when Deirdre implemented The ONE Thing[10:57] Finding out what matters to you[18:26] How to know that you’re on track for your goal[24:39] Getting a system in place[31:17] Finding the priorities to put in place to achieve your goal[36:53] Asking instead of tellingLinks & Tools From This Episodethe1thing.com/setmygoalsthe1thing.com/training--Do you keep writing the same thing over and over in your emails?We’re constantly sending the same email addresses, phone numbers, and replies to our coworkers and clients — and over time, the busy work really starts to add up.

Every year people set their goals and, without realizing it, they struggle to have a relationship with them.Gary Keller says that the purpose of a goal is not to achieve a result but to appropriate being in the moment; it’s a compass to help you identify how you have to behave today so that you’re in alignment with where you want to go. But before we can find alignment, we have to have clarity on our core values.Cathryn Lavery is the co-found of BestSelf Co., and she joined us at our goal-setting retreat last year with her fiance Emily Colman. By attending, not only did they figure out what their vision for their lives looked like together but they figured out what their core values were. And as it turned out, these values transformed their alignment in an unprecedented year.If you are interested in setting your goals and want some help discovering your core values, you can visit the1thing.com/corevalues to pre-order our Core Values Deck.

If we want to look at the quality of our relationships, we have to look no further than the quality of the conversations that we have.Here’s the problem: The everyday conversations with the people we care about are either strengthening our relationships or undermining them—and we’re not always aware of which because we’re failing so slowly we think we’re succeeding. When it comes to marriages, it can be catastrophic. With children it can lead to relationships full of regret. And with business it can lead to millions of dollars lost that could have been realized. So how do we fix it? How do we get clear on how we communicate with the people who matter most so that we build amazing relationships and build extraordinary lives?Susan Scott of "Fierce Conversations" has been on the show before, and she’s going to help us answer those questions.If you want to learn more about The ONE Thing Couples Goal Setting Retreat, you can go to the1thing.com/setmygoals.To learn more, and for the complete show notes, visit: the1thing.com/podcast.In this episode, you will learn...[04:14] How you arrived at the results in your life one conversation at a time[09:02] Having conversations with yourself[14:45] Turning feedback into a conversation instead of a preconception[26:42] Getting comfortable with discomfort[35:18] Having the courage to have difficult conversationsLinks & Tools From This Episodefierceinc.comthe1thing.com/setmygoalsRead: "Fierce Conversations"--Does your calendar feel out of control?It’s important to have a diverse portfolio, and most successful portfolios include a diversified set of real estate.

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.

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?

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.

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 Links & Tools From This Episodethe1thing.com/setmygoalsc3workplace.com -- Does your calendar feel out of control?It’s important to have a diverse portfolio, and most successful portfolios include a diversified set of real estate.

What if we told you that you are only one habit away from making your goal a reality?It’s the truth. The problem is that, while habit formation is simple, it can be challenging. For anyone who’s tried to make a habit stick you know what it feels like to struggle with consistency and doubt.BJ Fogg, the author of the best-selling book “Tiny Habits”, is going to help you understand that the key to habit formation is not about thinking big and acting big: It’s about thinking big and going small and trusting that, if you can identify that domino and whack away at it, all of the other dominos will fall. Some habits take longer to form than others, and that’s why we’re having this conversation today. We’re going to dissect why the key to habit formation is all about forming tiny habits.Going small takes courage when our ego wants to go big. The path to getting everything you want starts with one thing at a time. Do you have the courage to go small? We want to be on the journey with you.

How do we unpack the lies that keep us from experiencing extraordinary success?One lie in particular that holds most people back is that “big is bad.” It’s tricky to debunk because, when you put “big” and “results” in the same sentence, many people jump straight to thinking that big is complex, time-consuming, or intimidating.But the four ambitious leaders of the Empire Building podcast live in a way that embraces big thinking. The massive goals they’ve set for their businesses are only exceeded by their even bigger visions for what it means to live an extraordinary life. They are successful entrepreneurs, philanthropists, wives, and mothers who have started and expanded multi-million dollar businesses, and they share their tips for thinking bigger than you ever thought possible.It is so important to surround yourself with people who build you up and support you.

Have you taken any time to be grateful today?When we think about forming power habits, we often think about doing something that will improve our productivity or health. We rarely consider the transformative power of mindset habits, and one of the most powerful habits is gratitude.

Knocking back shots of apple juice is a slippery slope. That's called "romancing the drink". I'd replace that with a healthier behavior.

Exactly what I needed to hear right now. Been quite complacent since the Covid quarantine in our country. It's time for us to reclaim our time and be more intentional with the little resources that we have right now towards our goals!

Great walkthrough/example of how to narrow down the ONE thing you can do right now to reach you long term goal. Working backwards from your goal--> present.

Over the years, I've see my list of podcasts change, but not with this one. For the ONE thing podcast, my friend, seems to tap inti the #1 secret of achievement. I'll continue to listen to Jeff and his team and commit to the process, and so should you!

I recently started listening to this podcast and it has held my attention. I am usually very quick to change up podcasts if I get bored but I have listened and grasped so many important things I need to do if I want to become an entrepreneur. First and foremost, think about how to start my own business and episode#143, has helped. Keith Cunningham is hilarious and I cannot wait for the second part of his podcast.
