The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results: Achieve your goals…
What's the ONE Thing you can do this week that by doing it everything else would be easier or unnecessary?
Extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow can you make your focus.
Success is built sequentially. It's one thing at a time.
There can only be one most important thing. Many things may be important, but only one can be most important.
It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
- Mark Twain.
Things which matter the most must never at the mercy of things which matter the least.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Things which are the most important don't always scream the loudest.
Bob Hawke
Multi tasking is merely the opportunity to screw more than one thing at a time.
Steve Uzzell
Chronic multitaskers develop a distorted sense of how long it takes to do things. They almost always believe take take longer to complete than is actually required.
Multitaskers make more mistakes than non-multitaskers. They often make poorer decisions because they favor new information over the old, even if the old information is more valuable.
Success is actually a short race - a Sprint fueled by discipline just long enough for having to kick in and take over.
When you do the right thing, it can liberate you from having to monitor everything.
You make doing what matters most a priority when your willpower is at its highest.
The truth is the balance is bunk. It us an unattainable pipe dream ... The quest for balance between work and life, as we've come to think of it, isn't just a losing proposition; it's hurtful, destructive one.
The problem with living in the middle is that it prevents you from making extraordinary commitments to anything. In your effort to attend all the things, everything gets shortchanged and nothing gets it's due.
The reason we shouldn't pursue balance is that magic never happens in the middle, magic happens at the extremes.
We naturally understand that success lies at the outer edges, but we don't know how to manage our lives while we're out there
To achieve an extraordinary result you must choose what matters most and give it all the time it demands.
We are kept from our goal, not by obstacles, but by a clear path to a lesser goal.
Don't fear big. Fear mediocrity. Fear waste. Fear the lack of living to your fullest. When we fear big, we either consciously or subconsciously work against it. We either run towards lesser outcomes and opportunities or us simply away from the big ones.
... then thinking big isn't the absence of doubts, but moving past them.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret to getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks and then starting on the first one.
- Mark Twain
People do not decide their futures. They decide their habits and their habits decide their futures.
You can ask four questions:
- Small and Specific
- Small and Broad
- Big and Broad
- Big and Specific

"What can I do to double sales in six months?" It is a big goal and it is specific.
You'll need a big answer.
If disproportionate results come from one activity, then you must give that one activity disproportionate time.
Focus is a matter of deciding what things you're not going to do.
The four thieves of productivity:
- Inability to say No
- Fear of Chaos
- Poor Health Habits
- Environment Doesn't Support Your Goals
Being needed is incredibly satisfying, and helping others can be deeply fulfilling, Focusing on your own goals to the exclusion of others, especially the causes and the people we value the most, can feel downright selfish and self-centered. But it doesn't have to.
When you strive for greatness, chaos is guaranteed to show up.
Personal energy mismanagement is a silent thief of productivity.
High achievement and extraordinary results require big energy.
Surround yourself only with people who are going to lift you higher.
To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping.
