Choosing Your ONE Thing with Jay Papasan

Summary

Amy Porterfield interviews Jay Papasan, the co-author of “The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results.”

They talk about getting things done and working towards your goals in a very noisy world.

Why should you listen?

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got too much going on and too many distractions competing for your attention. This episode is a good, back to basics on being productive, getting focused and the power of habit.

I had a few “yeah, I should probably do that” moments whilst listening. Ironically trying to do something else at the same time…

3 lessons…

  • Look back from where you want to be in 5 years and build your goals for the current year off that. (Sounds obvious, but how many of us are doing that as a habit?)
  • “People don’t decide their futures, they decide their habits and their habits decide their futures”. Figure out the things that you have to do, to get where you want, and make them a habit.
  • Think big and don’t get scared and pullback when success starts to happen.

It’s so easy to get caught up on all the little details of launching a course, running a business—or, hey, living life. All these little things compete for your attention and energy.

The thing is: Living like this isn’t going to help you realize your full potential and true success.

The key to extraordinary results? Finding your ONE THING—your number one priority at any given point in time.

And I’ve got THE expert on this topic on the show today, my new friend Jay Papasan, author of the amazing book The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results.

His book—one of my favorites—has sold more than 1.3 million copies worldwide, and has appeared on national bestseller lists more than 400 times. And I truly believe that the principles in this book are the difference between realizing your potential and true success and honestly, just settling.

In addition to dishing about your one thing, or “true priority,” Jay and I talk about the real secret to sticking to your goals, and it’s about one word: Habits.

After this episode, you’re going to walk away with a new sense of purpose. You’re going to move past the distractions and overwhelm and get to a place where you’re hitting your goals and living stress free.

Are you ready to for this type of clarity and focus? Head on over now!
