The One Thing – The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results

Author : Gary Keller

Genre : Management, Self-Help

Gary Keller has had extraordinary success. He co-founded and chairs the largest reality company in US, and has been an E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year. In this book, he writes about the simple truth behind his success: focusing on one thing at a time!

Gary’s main message is to “be like the postage stamp, stick to one thing until you get there”. He asks provocatively, “What’s the ONE thing you can do this week such that by doing it everything else would be easier or unnecessary?”

“You want your Achievements to add up, but that actually takes subtraction, not addition. You need to do fewer things for more effect instead of doing more things with side effects.”
