What’s the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?Gary Keller
Success is not about doing many things mediocrely well but doing just ONE thing perfectly well.
Many people have common interests such as sports, music and watching television. As strange as it might sounds, those things don’t really excite me… My obsession is in Productivity.
Initially, I thought that being productive means doing more things so I can maximize my time to produce more work.
However, in The ONE Thing book, I realized that multi-tasking is an oxymoron. At any given moment, there’s only one thing we can focus on.
This book is CRUCIAL because it helps me to relax, enjoy life, and still allow me to accomplish lifechanging goals… one at a time.
I didn’t have the luxury to be stress-free in the past because I always going ‘gung-ho’ working in full-throttle. I was burned out, depressed and worst of all, I didn’t get to accomplish many things.
If you want to know a simple truth behind extraordinary results then The ONE Thing is definitely a MUST-READ.
I have assembled several quotes that I find incredibly important in the book so you can make a better decision if investing in The ONE Thing is worth your time.
These quotes are merely to serve as a trailer though; they cannot replace the book. You still need to read the book to get the full picture.
