S3E24: Geoff Woods, The ONE Thing

Sometimes you need to take a step back and look at the habits you have. Do they keep you on the right track? Are they taking you in a direction you don’t want to go? Are they allowing you to stagnate, instead of moving forward?

After all, it’s the habits we practice that shape the futures we have. So, it’s critical to envision where you want to be, and find ways of moving toward that in your everyday life. That’s the message from this week’s guest, The ONE Thing Vice President Geoff Woods, who is also an entrepreneur, father, and podcast host.

One day, Woods said he heard the Jim Rohn quote that “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” He looked at his own life and realized the five people he talked to the most weren’t in positions he wanted to be in. So, he redefined his friendships and sought mentors who could give him advice and guidance to move him toward reaching his goals. Today, he shares tips on restructuring how you walk through your life to make the most of it.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Surround yourself with people who are where you want to be
  • Allow yourself to be vulnerable, so you can take advantage of learning opportunities
  • Learn to focus on the one thing that will take you forward
  • Build good habits to build a good future
  • Ask questions to encourage others to find their own answers


“Open yourself up and approach with curiosity.” -Geoff Woods

“Vulnerability is true power.” -Geoff Woods

“The purpose of a goal is not to achieve a result. The purpose of a goal is to be appropriate in the moment.” -Geoff Woods

“Success is not simultaneous. It’s sequential. It’s one thing, at a time, over time that leads to extraordinary results.” -Geoff Woods

“We believe that leadership is teaching people how to think, so they can get what they need when they need it. And the way you teach people to think, so they can get what they need when they need it, is you ask them questions so they figure it out on their own.” -Geoff Woods
