Episode 266: How to Unlock Clarity for Exponential Growth

We are entering the time of year where we start to set our goals for the upcoming year.

The mistake people often make is that they commit to things that look attractive in the short run without understanding if it’s a distraction from where you want to go in the long run. How do we put a plan in place that honors both our short term commitments and long term goals?

In this conversation, you’ll hear how Deirdre Wheatley-Liss reached out to our team because she needed some help. She discovered The ONE Thing a little over a year ago, and she started updating her 411 every week and having 411s with her team. As a result, she saw extraordinary growth in the midst of this wild and crazy year. But now she realizes that if she continues to go down the same path, she’s going to burn out. You’ll hear how she gets clarity on where she wants to be someday, and how that brings focus on what her goal needs to be for the next year.
