Episode 280: How Core Values Drive Your Purpose

In a world full of choices, deciding what matters most can be tricky. We know extraordinary success is about leaning into our priorities and avoiding distractions—but how do we know when to say yes and when to say no?

Many people are searching for purpose. They want clarity on That ONE Thing so that they can make better decisions and have a direction for their life. But the truth is that clarifying your purpose is not always easy. Tapping into Your ONE Thing is a journey, not a lightning bolt.

To help you navigate that journey, Jay Papasan talks about a new tool we’re developing here at The ONE Thing: The Core Values Deck. Jay has been a driver behind making this project a reality, and he shares how identifying your values can be a compass for your life and a tool to point you in the direction of your purpose.
