About The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller
In today’s fast-paced world, people often try to improve every aspect of their lives at once, but usually aren’t as successful as they’d like to be. Author Gary Keller proposes a simple and powerful concept in this book: focusing on what matters most in our personal and work lives first. Most people want fewer distractions, fewer things on their plate, and fewer things to stress them out. The ONE Thing proposes a new way of looking at things we want, and provides an action plan to achieve them.
Why Cydcor Recommends This Book
This is an excellent read for anyone who enjoys multi-tasking but still feels like they aren’t attaining their goals as fast as they would like to. Focusing on multiple things at one time doesn’t necessarily mean more productivity. To achieve effectiveness, we need to narrow our focus and take things one at a time. The ONE Thing suggests pausing before starting a new project and asking yourself what can be prioritized. This will ultimately make things easier and help you avoid focusing on things that are unnecessary distractions.
Our Favorite Part
Early in the book, Keller outlines six popular beliefs that most people think are the “right way,” but that might be hindering their success: everything matters equally, multitasking is good, success requires a disciplined life, willpower is always on will-call, a balanced life is required, and big is bad. Each belief is thoroughly addressed and shown to be not be as helpful as people think. To achieve success, according to the author, it’s about doing the right thing, not about doing everything right. Finding true success requires less discipline than you think.
