Episode 274: Bigger Pockets’ Brandon Turner | The 3 Commitments for Extraordinary Results

In “The ONE Thing,” Gary Keller and Jay Papasan write about the three commitments you must make if you want to live a life of extraordinary results: following the path of mastery, moving from being entrepreneurial to purposeful, and living the accountability cycle. 

Are you making those commitments?

Brandon Turner, who you may know from the Bigger Pockets podcast, shows us what it looks like to live those commitments. This is a vulnerable take on how one person who is a big thinker and goal-setter has gone on a path of living those three commitments—with his significant other. You’ll hear how his identity has played a role in the achievement of his goals, the importance of having a relationship with your goals, what to do when things change, and how going small can help you go really big over the long run.
