Geoff Woods of The One Thing gives Bryan a masterclass in prioritization, work-life balance, and goal-setting. He also redefines his strategy for Make the Leap.
“We’re not just thought leaders, we’re practice leaders. We practice what we teach. So you have to live it.”
Some podcasts have so many nuggets of truth that you commit to listening more than once. Geoff and Bryan’s conversation is one of these.
Geoff has a system for honing in on the one thing that will bring about the best results.
He walks Bryan through the exact sequence of questions and thoughts that will scale-up Bryan’s Make the Leap book project. And in the process, he lays out a path for everyone looking to master their time and resources.
(3:30) “The shift is coming and there’s always a gift in the shift.” Pivoting business because of Covid…
(5:37) Have you ever been in a place where even though things are good, you’re lacking fulfillment? Geoff speaks about what led to his lightbulb moment.

(11:12) Going from doing the best you can do to studying the best in the world…
(12:02) Ideas that change people…
(17:23) “There’s no such thing as work-life balance. It’s not like these scales where they’re going to be completely equal. It does not exist. What we have to realize is that life is a balancing act.”
(18:57) Going long and staying short…
(21:07) “You got to stop doing the stuff that you’re probably doing right now, because most people, if I followed them around with a camera, I’d see them majoring in the minors.” Choosing ONE thing…

(46:34) What does Go Be More mean to you? “Think big, go small, trust the dominoes will fall. Have a big vision and understand that the path to getting there is not by doing everything. It’s about viewing all the things you can do like dominos: stand them up, line them up, whack away at the first one.”
