This weekend I read the book of Gary Keller and Jay Papasan “The ONE Thing”.
The authors claim that devotion to only one thing at a time allows achieving extraordinary results. In order to do that they suggest blocking a considerable number of hours every day for doing your one thing.
For determining what your one thing today is, they suggest asking the question: “What’s the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”
I think they are right. I have noticed, I am more productive when all my energy of a day is devoted to just one task, instead of multitasking. I achieve a lot on that task and the quality of the outputs I produce is substantially above my own average. Also, a correct focus on which task to do is important.
If you are after extraordinary results, this book is a good read.
