186. How ONE Working Mom Changed Her Life | Casey Gocel

Apr 22, 2019 | 0 comments

Have you ever felt like you desperately want your situation to change… but no matter how hard you work, you just feel like you’re drowning?

There are these periods of our lives when, no matter how much action we take, we feel overwhelmed, and we just wish that we could take back our lives. We’re ambitious, we’re driven, but that just doesn’t feel like enough to get any forward momentum. This is especially true when we have kids, because honoring work commitments and being present as a parent is a monumentally difficult task for even the most extraordinary people.

That was how Casey Gocel felt, until she started living The ONE Thing. In this episode, Casey shares the story of how she struggled to strike a counterbalance in her life after having her first child – and how things started to change when she started doing just ONE thing differently; ONE thing that’s truly made everything else in her world easier or unnecessary.

In this episode, you will learn…

  • [5:00] What happens when you take a hard and honest look at your calendar
  • [11:30] The ONE Thing that can help you reclaim your calendar and your time

  • [18:55] How you can leverage accountability and delegation to help you stick to your most important tasks

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Wherever you are, whatever you are dealing with in your life, understand that it doesn’t have to be that way. You can make amazing changes in your life – and it doesn’t have to take that long!

The path to getting everything you want is to get ONE thing at a time. So start by identifying the ONE thing that will make everything else easier or unnecessary, and start focusing on that lead domino until it falls. Over time, as you can hear in this episode, it truly leads to extraordinary results (as long as you can overcome the distractions that try to steal your focus).
