What is the ONE THING you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary? 

We hope you join us in an open, supportive conversation as we discuss The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller (available from booksellers in print and audio) 

From the Website:

In the #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller, Gary Keller has identified that behind every successful person is their ONE Thing. No matter how success is measured, personal or professional, only the ability to dismiss distractions and concentrate on your ONE Thing stands between you and your goals. The ONE Thing is about getting extraordinary results in every situation. 

There is so much wisdom in this simple concept. Just to make sure we have a targeted conversation that opens the door for discussion, sharing and growth we have provided the specific topics we will discuss:

  1. At what time in your life have you experienced success by narrowing your concentration to ONE Thing? At what time in your life have you had the opposite experience – less success because you were spread too thin?
  2. In chapter 6, the authors discuss how it takes an average of 66 days to build a habit. What habit, if you worked to develop it, would supercharge your productivity? (refer to page 57)
  3. In A Balanced Life (chapter 7), the authors write, “In your effort to attend to all things, everything gets shortchanged and nothing gets its due.” Have you had this experience in your own life, and what are some actionable solutions you’ve found? (refer to page 75)
  4. Take a few moments to recall the Four Thieves of productivity that the authors discuss in chapter 17. Which thief resonates the most with your own life, and how does it affect your productivity? Have you found ways to navigate around it?
