Set aside time to plan you week every week.
Decide the one thing you wish to accomplish this decade/year/month/week/day. Reserve time blocks to do your one thing, minimum four hours. Do not let anything disturb you while doing your one thing.
It is an easy and fun read, recommended.
would recommend the paper back copy as some of the sketches used are not sharp enough on the kindle
the main concept being :( what is the one thing i can do so that doing it things can become easier or not necessary) and applying it to different areas
of your life ,have only just started out on this but can see straight away how workable it can be,as with all these things though they need to be put into practice very good
The practice introduced in this book, of asking myself each day (or week), 'What one thing, if I did it, would make other things easier or unnecessary?' has changed how I approach prioritising my time.
Very, very useful. If you feel scattered, or like you are trying to manage too many things, or not handling things as well as you'd like, then take the time to read this.
Having set the scene, I found this book very helpful. The authors use stories to illustrate their premise - which always makes things easier to assimilate and understand - they also draw in threads from other books I have read recently which rather reinforces the points made there.
The book is an easy and enjoyable read but that doesn't mean its message doesn't pack a useful punch. It does. It is motivating as well as informative and practical.
I really liked the fact that the solution proposed is not just work related - the authors encourage you to focus on all domains of life - not, as they point out, to achieve balance but to recognise there is more to life than work.
The tips given about goal setting included the regular stuff that fellow productivity junkies will have read many times before BUT there is also a significant addition. an exercise, which you will almost certainly resist doing but if you do I am certain you will experience one of those 'aha' epiphanies of where it has all been going wrong in the past.
The only reason I haven't awarded 5 stars is because I think there was a chunk of repeated information at the back of the book which was unnecessary and I also question the price (I bought the KIndle edition) which did seem on the high side. (But that says more about my expectations than the value offered by the book).
Definitely recommended to anyone who is ending each day with a lot crossed off the ubiquitous list but with a sense of no-thing being done.
In life, you certainly need to be FOCUSSED to be successful at something but that is not the same as doing ONE thing! Focussed means that if you start a business making scented candles, stick to the theme unless of course you find that no one wants to buy your scented candles! This is not the same as doing one thing though - it entails doing a myriad of things. Look at Richard Branson - do you really think he has been successful because he has focussed on ONE thing (at a time) - of course not. You also need to WORK HARD AND BE EFFECTIVE at what you do AND you will need a big dose of LUCK in the process. That's my theory of how to succeed in life! Free of charge!! Save yourself £8!
