Ep. 72 - Building a Sustainable Company That Scales | Babak Azad  

A business isn't just something that makes money, helps customers, or delivers value – it's a vehicle for you to live a BIG life and finance your life's purpose.

However, if you want to build that vehicle, you need to start by building a sustainable company.

Babak Azad is the former Senior Vice President of Media and Acquisition at Beach Body, creators of P90X, Insanity, and Shakeology. He led the team that grew the company from $100M to $1B in revenue, and he did it while building trust with their customers. He shares how you can develop a mindset that will help you strike a balance between delivering short-term revenue and building a brand that people trust.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

If you want to build a sustainable business, you need to make the word brand part of your daily lexicon and treat your customers the way they want to be treated. You can start by considering the following questions:

What is the experience your customers want and prefer? How can you create a great experience for them? Living The ONE Thing is a lifelong journey, and the goal is not to be perfect. You're a human, and you're likely going to fail... but will you get back on the horse, move forward, and try to do better the next day?

 

In this episode you will learn...

[8:10] The two key components of a brand. [11:05] ONE question we wish we had asked ourselves earlier. [16:20] How you can strike the right tension between short-term revenue and long-term trust.

Ep. 68 - Developing a World Class Mindset with Emotional Agility | Dr. Susan David  

What does it take internally to thrive?

Psychologists understand that the way in which we navigate our inner world drives every aspect of how we love, live, and lead... but it can be difficult for us to reflect inward and navigate our everyday thoughts, emotions, and self-talk because no one ever taught us how.

Our guest, Dr. Susan David, is a clinical psychologist and author of the best-selling book, Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life. We're sharing this conversation as a crash course to help you start developing emotional agility and thriving internally.

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:

You can start having a more effective relationship with your emotions today, and you may be surprised at how powerful an effect this simple shift may have.

Step One: Distance yourself from an emotion you're holding onto by saying, "I notice I feel _____."

Step Two: Ask yourself: What is the bigger value that lies underneath that is provoking these emotions? The moment you acknowledge what the underlying value is, the emotions dissipate.

Let us know the ONE thing you take action on from this episode by emailing us or sharing it with us on Facebook.

 

In this episode you will learn...

[3:10] How Emotional Agility allows you to learn from your emotions. [6:15] Why you shouldn't treat your emotions or thoughts as directions. [12:40] How you can bring more focus and transparency to the emotions that you feel, and handle them appropriately. [17:55] Why discomfort is the price of admission for a meaningful life. [23:10] How you can begin making value-based decisions (and what happens when you don't live in alignment with your values). [33:55] How to set goals based on what you have to do, and not what you want. You can take Susan's free Emotional Agility quiz for help thinking of values in the context of your emotional agility. [40:25] How to help your child navigate their emotions. You can learn more about this in "Teaching Your Child Emotional Agility."

Ep. 66 - Top 3 Power Habits Learned from Gary Keller & Jay Papasan  

Over five years went into researching and writing The ONE Thing, and one of the things we discovered was that, on average, it takes 66 days to form a habit. That means you can form up to five life-changing power habits every year... but how many power habits have you acquired over even the past five years?

Most of us haven't formed very many, and that's okay. Today you have the opportunity to intentionally decide which habits you will form, and narrow your focus to the ONE you want to acquire first.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

We hope you'll celebrate episode 66 with us by picking just ONE of the three power habits we described and starting your own 66 Day Challenge.

You can download your own 66-Day Calendar for free at the1thing.com/66daychallenge.

Ep. 64 - Struggling to Get Clarity & Identify Your Priorities? You’re Not Alone!  

Do you ever feel like you're working hard... but not getting the results that you deserve?

So many of us feel isolated by this feeling, but you are NOT alone.

We are sharing a conversation we had with one of you, Lizzie Grant, to demonstrate how common this feeling is. We failed Lizzie, but we called her because we always want to learn from our failures. We never intended for this conversation to be a podcast episode, but it was too inspiring and too valuable not to share with all of you.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Get clear on what your priorities really are. Write them down on a sheet of paper.

Now ask yourself: What is the minimum amount of time that you need to invest in your top priority to make progress?

Don't set the bar too high because, when you start taking action every day, it will become a habit.

 

In this episode you will learn...

[9:00] How taking a break can help you get clarity. [11:30] Why so many of us struggle to control our time (not just you!). [18:00] How you can get clarity on what you want and develop a system that helps you do those things in order of priority.

Ep. 57 - Your Path to Purpose with Brian Schoenbaum  

Many of the members of our Living Your ONE Thing community have asked the same question: How do I discover my purpose?

So many people asked us that we decided to sit down with Brian Schoenbaum, Founder & CEO of Vuka Collective, to create an exclusive training video for the ONE thing community. We talked to Brian because he operates on another level and a single purpose drives everything he does: helping people wake up in their personal and professional lives.  

We're sharing the audio from that training here because we want you to understand what we're doing for members of our community and consider if it is a good fit for you. If it is, you can go to the1thing.com/membership and try your first week for only $1.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Jay Papasan once said, "The path to discovering your purpose begins with getting on the path."

Finding your purpose is not a result of following certain steps in order. It is about pausing and finding the space to ask questions: When I walk into a room, what is the positive energy that other people experience? What is my unique genius in the world? How can I be bold?

If you want to enlist support and get more training like this, you can join the Living Your ONE Thing community by going to the1thing.com/membership and signing up for a $1 trial.

 

In this episode you will learn...

[11:15] Why going on a journey to discover your purpose is so important (and what the payoff is). [19:40] How you can begin to take action on discovering your purpose. [23:55] How to reveal (and leverage) your unique genius.

Ep. 56 - Unleashing a Domino Effect in Your Life with John White  

Do you believe that thinking big and acting small, every day, will create extraordinary results?

We've found that many people who try to live The ONE Thing don't trust The Domino Effect. We can cast a big vision for our life, but we often struggle to take daily action.

This episode is a case study examining how, over four years, someone like you identified a specific daily action that made everything else easier or unnecessary, started living a big life, and toppled some huge dominoes.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Trust in the power of The Domino Effect. What's the ONE thing you can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary? When you look at all of the areas of your life, what's the ONE area you need to focus on first?

Apply the focusing question until you identify a specific, measurable action that will make everything else easier or unnecessary – for John, it was as simple as setting a recurring alarm clock.

If you'd like us to be your accountability partner in getting results and your mentor in living your ONE thing, then text the word “FOUNDER” to the number 33444 or go to the1thing.com/membership.

 

In this episode you will learn...

[4:40] What most people struggle with when they start trying to live The ONE Thing. [10:50] The ONE thing to take away from the book that will help you knock over your lead domino. [13:20] How you can leverage simplicity to grow your business. [18:05] How the 5th productivity thief steals your time. [26:25] How systematizing your ideal morning will help you execute at a higher level. [30:35] How simplifying your lead Domino makes it easier to knock over. [33:05] The first step you should take towards living your ONE thing.
