347. ONE Word That Will Change Your Life

Apr 18, 2022 | 0 comments

On April 1st, 2022, The ONE Thing book turned nine years old. To celebrate nine years of helping people discover their lead domino, prioritize what matters most, and achieve extraordinary results, we’re looking back at our top nine favorite podcast episodes.

Extraordinary results become possible when you are clear on what you are saying yes to.

We can’t say yes to everything. When you set up dominos, the path to knocking them all down doesn’t involve flicking at them randomly one at a time. You set them up, line them up, and whack away at the first one. But so many people doubt that they can find that ONE Thing when it feels like they have so many things to focus on.

Every year, Jon Gordon identifies one word that he’s going to focus on, a word that brings purpose to what he does. He uses that one word every single day to bring clarity to his actions. Using the tools Jon mentions in this episode will help you bring focus to every aspect of your life, too.
