Ep.04 The Pitch
In this solo-episode, "The PITCH" - Kristen takes things up to the 50,000 foot view to share some background to "The ONE Theory" - all with the intention of creating some common ground. She explores just how important it is to explore topics that people can relate to because this is the precursor to relationships, which is the precursor to community. And so - in this episode we begin exploring The ONE Theory in terms of why (and how) it came to be, how it helps us level UP, and how The ONE Book is only just the starting point for something much, much bigger.
Kristen reflects on how her varied experiences in her career have led her to finding The ONE Theory. It's been a career centred around helping people - from the front line as a former PICU nurse, to healthcare executive, to business and management strategist - Kristen has both seen and felt what the "overwhelm" really is and has come to believe that it CAN be prevented (best case scenario) and when it can't (worst case scenario)… there are ways to pull ourselves out of it and starting moving forward again faster than we even realize. Why is this so important? Because frankly… we are all on the clock and our time is far too precious to waste in a state of "overwhelm". The overwhelm slows us, stunts our progress, and in extreme cases… causes us to quit and give up our dreams. And so through her research of leading management and personal development practices, along with principles from human psychology and physiology, Kristen found a new way to look at things and has called it "the power of ONE".
Also discussed are two important components to The ONE Theory: The MVR Triad (our Most Valuable Resources) and the Six Excellence Potential Habits within The ONE Theory. Kristen explores just how imporons, and achievements (the power of ONE at a time) is the solution to the 'overwhelm'. She explains that simplification is the major underpinning principle to The ONE Theory and that there are many, many examples of how just making things EASIER for ourselves (and others) is so often the answer to getting what we (and others) want with this approach, Kristen suggests that we can change EVERYTHING and finally get to the point of leveling up once and for all.
Also discussed are two important components to The ONE Theory: The MVR Triad (our Most Valuable Resources) and the Six Excellence Potential Habits within The ONE Theory. Kristen explores just how important it is to consider our Time, Money, and Energy (the MVR) through the lens of how we exchange them vs. sacrifice them. This is the first step of building an abundance mindset instead of a scarcity mindset. Our time is scarce and non-renewable. Our money is our universal/tangible item of exchange but it is also a means to an end, often enables security and freedoms, and it is also a responsibility to give back to help others. Energy on the other hand is most often overlooked and undervalued as a resource. It is our "emotional and spiritual well". Kristen explains that each of us will always have one of these resources in front of our minds as our "primary driver" that will influence our views and decisions in life.
Lastly, Kristen taps into how The ONE Book is the first stepping stone of the ONE Program. The Six Excellence Potential Habits are embedded within this interactive book and by using this all-in-one book for an entire year, you'll be building all of the important skills to manage the overwhelm while also planning, creating, journaling, managing your finances, practicing gratitude, and sharpening your focus - not to mention capturing your story - your legacy - to keep and pass on for generations to come.
