Gentleman, if you had to pick your One Word for the year, what would it be?
For those that aren’t aware, the One Word concept is from a book titled, One Word That Will Change Your Life by Jon Gordon, Dan Britton, and Jimmy Page.
The idea is to pick a word for the year, write it down (or, even better, create a painting with it), and then simply pay attention to how the word shows up in your life throughout the year.
The whole idea for this episode came about from the time I spent with my great friend and longtime brother of the FRD community, Seth Dailey.
As an annual tradition, Seth and his family get together around the holidays, and they decide what their One Word will be for the year. I was very grateful that they invited my family to their beautiful home and allowed us to join them for this exercise. It was such a powerful experience, and I absolutely loved it.
Seth is a husband, father of 4 amazing daughters, who are some of the most inspiring humans I’ve ever met. He’s the Co-Founder and the Operating Principal of the brokerage Keller Williams Gateway, and the team leader for the real estate company The Dailey Group, which he also co-founded with his wife, Alyce.
In our conversation, Seth talks about how this exercise helps him find habits and rituals for his family and guides us to bring out the best in each other.
We’re talking about how to listen to our family’s rally cry, how to give your kids a community they can thrive in, and how to reassess being vulnerable so that we can grow as a family unit, all with the power of one word.
