    Achieving Your Someday Vision as a Couple with Geoff Woods [Encore]

    Achieving Your Someday Vision as a Couple with Geoff Woods [Encore]

    If you’re like many high achieving Dads, you probably know a thing or two about setting goals. But where a lot of guys struggle, is when it comes to creating and developing goals as a couple.
    What happens if you’re a goal setter, but your partner isn’t? This can be a big point of contention in a relationship. But when you and your spouse are able to fully understand each other’s core values, even when they don’t totally match, it can allow your relationship to thrive.
    Joining me today to talk about this is my good friend Geoff Woods. Geoff is the Vice President of The ONE Thing and the host of The ONE Thing podcast. He’s on a mission to help people better invest their time and get better results – in all areas of life. Over the years, Geoff has helped many couples in all kinds of situations achieve success in their relationships.  If things are going well, he can help you make them even better. And if they’re not, well, he knows how to get you back on track. 
    Today’s conversation is a great one. We’re discussing the importance of goal setting as a couple and the impact it can make in your life. Last year, Tatyana and I attended a couples’ goal setting retreat led by Geoff and his business partner Jay Papasan, and we experienced MAJOR breakthroughs. This year, Geoff will be offering this retreat virtually. If this is something that interests you (and by the end of this episode you’ll know if it’s for you), simply go to FrontRowDads.com/goals to get more information and enroll.
     Gold Nuggets Why so many couples feel like they aren’t growing together, or are out of alignment – and how a deep understanding of your core values and goals can transform this dynamic.  The importance of setting, dating, and checking in on your and your spouse’s goals on a regular basis.  How to talk to your partner about why goal setting matters to you. Why goals don’t have to be shared between couples to be achieved. How to conquer your fear of finding clarity leading to the end of your relationship.  Why there’s no better time to get your goals in alignment than right now. ''Goals aren't something you set and forget, they're something that should determine your behavior on a weekly basis.'' - @GeoffWoods Click To Tweet
    Big Questions Asked Is goal setting as a couple a one time deal or does it have to continuously be revisited? What does it mean to have a relationship with our goals? Why is it so important for someone else to do the talking (i.e. outside help) when it comes to setting goals as a couple?  How can a high achieving Dad get his partner (who may not be a goal setter) to say YES to attending a goal setting event for couples?  What does a couple do if their goals aren’t the same? How can a couple decide what matters most when it comes to their mutual goals? What kind of fears do couples have when attending an event like this and how can they overcome them? What is The ONE Thing Virtual Goal Setting Retreat and how can someone join? ''Nobody succeeds alone, so don’t try to.'' - @GeoffWoods Click To Tweet

Jon is the man!

Amazing interviewer! Great guests!! Real talk. No bs. No sugar coating. Raw, real, and great content!!

Jerome Shaw 🤲🏾 ,

Great for Dads and Dudes alike!

Listened to the episode “Why Kids Need Biodiversity”. Great intro and podcast voice! Super professional! Easy to listen to for sure. In this episode, we are joined by Zach Bush who has a lot of great things to say about getting kids outside.

I agree that kids today are being so sterilized in this war on germs. I love that he talks about “bringing Mother Earth into the nuclear family”. Having them be engaged in Mother Nature. I also agree that more war is not the solution and leads to more death.

This episode is a serious one and asks bold questions. It makes me wonder where our future is headed if we do not get real about change. Thank you for being unafraid to publish this content that says what others are avoiding. I am not a Dad yet but I still got value.

I like that your episodes vary in length. I enjoy listening to long episodes but also the occasional bite sized episode. These are things that people need to hear. It may not be easy but it is necessary. I recommend this to anyone who is a Dad or just values their family’s future.

Statman007 ,

Jon’s Podcast is full of take-always:)

Jon, we appreciate all of the amazing content you put together. The only problem I have with it is that you have too many take-always, a great problem to have! An abundance of great info and ideas. Thank you Jon!
