“So many people go through their days spending their time, not investing it.”
“These are not tactics, these are timeless truths that have been proven to unleash extraordinary results.”
“The path to getting everything you want starts by knocking down one thing at a time.”
“Why do we struggle to focus? It’s because we’re not actually clear on what we should be focusing on.”
“This is not a job for me, this is a purpose-based movement, for me. This is a commitment for my life.”
Are you unclear about what your ONE thing is? Geoff shared this guidance for narrowing in on what it might be:
1) If you’re unclear about what your ONE thing is, then figuring it out is now your ONE thing. Make that your top priority.
2) Really sit with the idea of finding what your thing is and search. Don’t just stop when you feel like you don’t know.
3) List out everything you could possibly do, find the 20% of those things that will generate 80% of your results to identify what you should do, and then order them by priority by asking if you could only do one, which would it be?
