Finished Reading: The ONE thing
Apr 16, 2017

What is The ONE Thing (affiliate link) you can do today such that by doing it everything else would be easier or unnecessary?

That is the ONE thing: focus on one single thing at the time, the most important one.

The ONE Thing is a book written by both Gary Keller and Jay Papasan, and published in 2013 by Bard Press.

The ONE Thing, I believe, in one way or another complements the content described in The Compound Effect. A lot of great takeaways:

  • Doing the most important thing is what matters.
  • Success is built over time, by always doing the most important things, same idea in The Compound Effect.
  • Personal life is the much more important than work.
  • Time spent on a task eventually beats talent, again, same idea in The Compound Effect
  • Do not be afraid of saying No
  • Time blocking in the morning, at least 4 hours to work on the most important thing at the time, uninterrupted.

Although I did not plan to read Ego is the enemy before The ONE Thing or The Compound Effect, I find interesting similar topics are covered, in one way or another, by all them, kind of like Great minds think alike.
