The One Thing

One Thing. One Person.


Today we jump back in “The One Thing” by Gary Keller. I really like this week’s point on having just one thing, but also just one person.

We all do a lot of things that can clutter our focus. If we really sit and think about what our one thing is, it may surprise us to realize what it is compared to what we do every day. This is why we need that other person. If we have another person who is also focused on the one thing we can keep each other aligned. We can catch each other when we get distracted. We can bring each other back on track when needed.

I think if we really define what our true one thing is, then we can start taking the right steps to focus on our one thing. Then, and only then, will we start to see the results we're looking for. Have a great week!

If you started with a single domino that was only 2 inches high, and then each domino after that was 50% bigger, the 23rd domino would be taller than the Eiffel Tower. The 31st domino would loom over Mount Everest by almost 3,000 feet. Number 57 would practically bridge the distance between the earth and the moon!

No, today's Chasing Excellence isn't about random facts, it's about the power of the lead domino. When it falls, you've unleashed a power that can reach the moon!

This book is going to get us focused, as being focused is far more powerful than trying to tackle a bunch of things at once.

Gary says, "Going small is ignoring all the things you could do and doing what you should do. It’s recognizing that not all things matter equally and finding the things that matter most."

Check out this week's episode to learn how to narrow your focus and accomplish more!
