Ep 212 - Unintended Consequences of Setting Goals Looking Forward | Clay Clark
Have you ever worked hard day in and day out, week after week, only to find yourself wondering why you’re even doing what you’re doing? Sometimes we are so focused on climbing the ladder that we don’t notice it’s leaning against the wrong wall — and this is because there are unintended consequences to setting your goals by looking forward. When you set goals looking forward, you miss the most important part of goal setting: where you’re going and why you’re going. If you don’t have that purpose and priority before you set your goals and start working away at them, you can’t be productive. So, in this episode, Clay Clark, Founder of ThriveTime Show and co-host of Business School Without the BS, is going to share when he realized he was living a life by default and how he started living a life by design.

Ep 211 - ONE Year After Setting Goals Together, This Happened | Jake & Alyx Dreyfuss
No one succeeds alone — yet, most people try to. One of the biggest mistakes we see people making is that they set goals by themselves, and then they struggle throughout the year because the people who are in their life — the people who have to buy into their goals if they want to accomplish them — aren’t on the same page. That’s why we created The ONE Thing Couple’s Goal-Setting Retreat, modeling an exercise that Jay and Wendy Papasan have been doing for the past decade. The point isn’t to negotiate for whose goals are right, but for each person to understand what the other person’s goals are and how they can support the other person in achieving those goals. In this episode, we’re going to look at what happens when a couple, for the first time, sets their goals together. The results are pretty amazing, but here’s the best part: you can do it too.

Ep 210 - ONE Thing to Grow Together as a Couple | Kaelyn Loes & Brent Wallace
When you set your goals, are you doing it by yourself or with your significant other? When we’re not aligned with the people who are most important to us, the people who have a significant stake in our lives, we’re eliminating one of the most powerful support systems we have — and putting obstacles in the path of our goals. So how can we get them on board with the goal-setting process, even if they’re not goal setters themselves? In this episode, we’re going to look at what one couple did in this exact situation, Kaelyn Loes and Brent Wallace. One of them was your prototypical goal setter — they read the book, listened to the podcast, used productivity apps — while the other felt that the goal-setting process restricted them at times. But today, they go on this journey together, and in this episode you’ll learn about the tools and conversations that helped them come into alignment.

Ep 209 - Proven Practices for Setting Goals as a Couple
What were you taught about setting goals as a kid? If we’re taught anything, we’re usually taught to set goals around New Year’s. But now, as we head into the last quarter of the year, is actually the perfect time to start considering our goals for the upcoming year. Gary Keller and Jay Papasan show us that, if you want to have great success, you have to have a bigger view of time — and you have to understand that the actions you take today may not have results until days or months down the road. So, in this episode, Jay and Wendy Papasan are going to share how they’ve been setting goals for years and how you can apply these simple practices into your own relationship and/or business, even if the other people in your world aren’t goal setters. If you want to join us at our Goal-Setting Retreat Nov. 9th & 10th in Austin, TX, you can learn more at to learn more.

Today, we are going to meet a couple, Brock and Angie Nyborg, who were introduced to The ONE Thing just over a year ago.
