    ProduKtive System (Part 1) - Transform How You Think

    27:39

    This is the first in a six-part series of episodes exploring the steps of the ProduKtive system. ProduKtive will change how you think for the better, allowing you to cast a stronger vision with bigger, more precise goals. In the subsequent weeks, we’ll be looking at building a plan, learning to effectively prioritize activities, using time blocking to reflect those priorities, and building habits that make it all possible. But to start with, let’s take a look at the lies of productivity.Do you consider yourself to be a good multitasker? Is your instinct to tackle everything at once? If so, you’re falling for the same myths so many people are tricked by when it comes to productivity. Studies show that we waste 28% of our time spent while multitasking. Just think how much time that is over the course of a year (it’s weeks, not days). Stop believing that everything on your plate matters equally, and start prioritizing. Find your One Thing and do it!Unless you prioritize ruthlessly, you’ll be losing time to multitasking. What’s The ONE Thing you can do, such that by doing it, would make everything else easier or unnecessary?To learn more, and for the complete show notes, visit: the1thing.com/pods.In this episode, you will learn...[00:00] About the ProduKtive system[04:00] The myth that everything matters equally[11:40] The folly of multitasking [21:10] The lie of a disciplined lifeLinks & Tools From This EpisodeLearn more about the ProduKtive system--Getting things done is a challenge everyone struggles with.One way to tackle this is to make sure you have the right tools for you and your computer.

    59:37

    Have you ever set goals that you thought would deliver you pure happiness once you achieved them – just to work hard, achieve them, and move on to the next without giving yourself a chance to feel fulfilled or celebrated? We all have and it’s something we should work out of our productivity-laden routines.How might we create more sustainable happiness on our road to achievement? Dan Sullivan has been working with business owners for decades under the program, The Strategic Coach, and was one of the pioneers of the coaching industry. We have a conversation around what it means to shift your perspective so you get out of the gap of dissatisfaction and live in the gain – where happiness lives.We’re always looking forward to the next goal, but we don’t give ourselves the chance to celebrate the successes we’ve had.

    Stop Limiting Your Potential With Realistic Goals

    37:24

    We all know the importance of setting goals. We have to know where we're headed and what we want to achieve in order to get there, right? The problem is that most people don’t know the best strategy for setting their goals. It seems obvious that our goals should be realistic, right? Wrong. It may seem counterintuitive, but, in reality, your goals should be wildly unrealistic. Reach for the stars. Another problem is the company we keep. Most of us surround ourselves with relationships and circumstance.

    Why Top Talent Leaves and How to Fix It

    31:14

    Over a trillion dollars were lost to voluntary turnover in the USA last year alone. Replacing an employee costs an average of between 1.5 and 2 times their annual salary – and that’s a conservative estimate. The salt in the wound? 52% of people who leave for a new job say that their management could have done something to keep them. So, how can you help your organization avoid becoming part of these unfortunate statistics? Can you give yourself permission to make your world so big that, when someone steps into it, they can have everything they want and never need to leave? Do you know the right questions to ask during the hiring process, questions that make instant connections and enable you to make a true commitment to each other that benefits both parties?As you listen to this episode, pay attention to how simple it can be to turn turnover around – and if you’re the employee in this equation, know what you need to ask from your employer to make your job one that you never want to leave. Finding your ONE Thing could be easier than you think. One of the best things you can do to solidify your path on this journey is to join us at our Goal Setting Retreat so that you’ll have the tools to know what you want out of your career five years or just five months from now.

    Build Fierce Relationships ONE Conversation at a Time

    35:45

    Do you know the questions you should ask to ensure a happy, fulfilling, and lasting relationship? More importantly, do you know who you ask them to? (Hint: sometimes, the correct answer is yourself). Conversations are the backbone of a relationship, but that doesn’t mean we know how to have them. Whenever one stops working, it’s a safe bet that it’s because of a breakdown of communication, be it not ensuring each other knows what’s expected of them, or simply allowing a disconnect to take hold. Friend of the show and New York Times bestselling author, Susan Scott, founded Fierce in 2001, after 13 years of leading CEO think tanks and over 10,000 hours conversing with senior executives led her to realize that, while no single conversation is guaranteed to change the trajectory of a career, business, or life, any conversation can. This led to her sharing her valuable knowledge in the form of the Fierce book series, starting with the award-winning Fierce Conversations: Achieving Success at Work and in Life, One Conversation at a Time. Now, she’s turning her insights toward the world of romance with the upcoming Fierce Love: Creating a Love That Lasts, One Conversation at a Time, so she joins us to lay everything out there: where do we go wrong in our love lives and what can we do to align them with our ONE Thing?THE ONE THING TO IMPLEMENT FROM THIS EPISODESusan Scott’s philosophy is to take things one conversation at a time, but to really maximize what we get out of each one. Those conversations require us to think and define the parameters of what we want to get out of them – and, sometimes, that’ll mean that we have the conversation with ourselves. That’s the best way to discover our relationship ONE Thing. To learn more, and for the complete show notes, visit: the1thing.com/pods.In this episode, you will learn...[02:30] What inspired Susan to venture away from business and toward romance[13:50] Some of the myths that derail relationships[21:30] The most important conversations you can have[28:20] Susan’s best advice for people starting their search for answersLinks & Tools From This [email protected] - email Susan and she’ll alert you when the book is available to orderRead Susan’s first book: Fierce Conversations: Achieving Success at Work & in Life, One Conversation at a Time--Do you sometimes wish your home were smarter?Somfy is an organization that creates motorized solutions that automate and connect blinds, shades, blades, rolling shutters, and so much more.

    How to Take the Lead, Play Bigger, and Multiply Your Impact

    52:58

    Every organization has it’s impact players – those indispensable team members that you can count on when the stakes are high. And while others do their job, impact players find the job to be done. Whether they’re center stage or behind the scenes, leaders know who these top players are… and they want more of them on their team.While their impact is obvious, it’s not always as clear what makes these impact players different from their peers. How do you stack your team with people who can make the most impact when you don’t have a proven way of identifying them?Liz Wiseman invested her career in studying leadership, and, as she did, she became curious about the teams that we lead. She studied top contributors to begin identifying what they are doing differently, and how their mindset could potentially be available to everyone else who wants to contribute at that high level.As you listen to this episode, listen out for how to identify impact players at work, and then join us at our Goal Setting Retreat to figure out how to be an impact player throughout your whole life.

    How to Make Thursday the New Friday

    37:14

    Do you understand the history of time? Why do we view time the way we do?We have a problem with time: the majority of people spend it rather than investing it. They don’t view it as their most valuable resource, and they don’t hold it accountable to delivering a return – personally or professionally.Joe Sanok is going to help us understand why we view time the way that we do. Early in his career he began asking questions: Why work five days a week? Why not four? What would have to happen to make that possible? What could some of the hidden benefits be? Whether you choose to change the number of days you work is not the point of this conversation, but, rather, the point is to get you to challenge the way you currently view your time, how you spend it, and how you invest it.After hearing this conversation, see if you can identify ONE Thing, such that by doing it, would make investing your time easier or unnecessary.

    Why‌ ‌Radical‌ ‌Candor‌ ‌Fuels‌ ‌Productive‌ ‌Accountability‌

    56:25

    Many of us grew up hearing the old adage: if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. But as you get into the workforce – especially as a leader of people – part of your job is taking a stand for their greatness when they may be fighting for their limitations.Think about a time when you received some harsh feedback that you ended up being really grateful for. It probably helped you grow as a person. What did they do that made it successful for you? And what would have happened if you had not received that feedback?At the heart of a successful conversation is what Kim Scott calls “radical candor.” It’s about being candid with people and saying what needs to be said for their benefit. And it’s called “radical” because of how rare it actually is.One of the commitments you have to make to live a life of extraordinary results is to live the accountability cycle. We provide a simple framework called the 4-1-1, a tool that gives you clarity on your priorities for each of the four weeks of the month, your goals for the month, and your goals for the year.To learn more, and for the complete show notes, visit: the1thing.com/pods.In this episode, you will learn...[06:04] The meaning of candor[08:56] The importance of discussing the personal at work[12:34] Why Kim needed to write Radical Candor[15:19] How to overcome the fear of challenging[22:30] Personalizing your message for the person[28:53] Recognizing workplace injustices[47:43] How to disrupt workplace biasesLinks & Tools From This Episodekimmalonescott.comradicalcandor.comjustworktogether.comTwitter: @kimballscott--Your health is incredibly important. And yet, it can be a struggle to get exercise and diet dialed in.
