The ONE Thing by Gary Keller

It's largely an affirmation of achievement concepts I already prescribe to which made it easy to read.  The book has done extremely well since it's 2013 release with a LONG list of awards and accomplishments.  Between that and being recommended several times throughout last year I figured it was about time to give it go.  Keller makes his point rather well...

"What's the ONE Thing I can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?"

...success demands singleness of purpose, multitasking is a lie, and mastery bears gifts.  Keller refers to the above question as the Focusing Question which could be applied in many areas of life - financial, spirituality health, personal, business, relationships - to define your top priority.  Enabling you to take a very large, hairy, problem stricken life situation and deduce it down to the single most important action you can take to start the domino effect.  He proceeds in warning us to watch out for the Four Thieves...

  1. Inability to say "No"
  2. Fear of chaos
  3. Poor health habits
  4. Environment doesn't support your goals

...that steal our time, bury our productivity, and destroy our purpose.  Keller does a great job reminding you, quality over quantity - ALWAYS.  He also throws in many real life examples to support his theories.  If you're in need of a light motivating read to keep you focused and productive then you've landed on a winner.  Grab it and let's chat about it.
