Jun 12, 2023 | 0 comments

Have you ever marveled at the intricate details that make a brand or service extraordinary, leaving you eagerly awaiting your next interaction with them? If so, you’re in the right place.

Today, we have a uniquely special episode lined up for you. We are privileged to have co-author of The ONE Thing book, Jay Papasan, interviewing the renowned Will Guidara, acclaimed for his role in running some of the world’s top-notch restaurants. Guidara generously shares insights from his book “Unreasonable Hospitality,” and we couldn’t be more thrilled about this riveting conversation.

What makes this discussion particularly captivating is Guidara’s definition of being “unreasonable” – an unyielding drive towards excellence. In the realm of hospitality, he asserts that this pursuit becomes the very DNA and the quintessential part of the product offered by exceptional companies. This quest for perfection is what fuels people’s purpose.

At The ONE Thing, we firmly believe that purpose guides priority. When your purpose is clear, you instinctively know what to say yes to as an individual or a business, enabling you to be productive and inch closer to your set goals over time.

No matter the industry you’re part of, or the goals you’re striving to accomplish, this enlightening conversation offers valuable insights that can help you become “unreasonable” in the pursuit of your product excellence and goal achievement.
