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

Jul 17, 2017 | 0 comments

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.
