So there’s a new book coming out by the founder of Keller Williams, Gary Keller. I have to fully disclose that I’m a Keller Williams agent and a huge fan of Gary Keller’s work, so I am very biased. That said, I love the premise of this book.
Here’s the key question (taken from the website):
What’s the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?
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.
Here’s a link to preorder the book. It will hit bookstores on April 1. http://the1thing.com/
If you ask yourself that question – of your life, your career, your year, your business, your month, your week, and even your day – interesting things can happen. I’m only on chapter 2, so I can’t spoil the ending, but at this point in the year, when so many of us are still putting the finishing touches on our business plans, it’s a great question.
Maybe you’re like me. I recently noticed that I’m not sticking to my marketing schedule, and the year is only eight days old. What, exactly, is getting me off track? Why do I not block time for what’s truly important, and make sure that the ONE thing gets done, no matter what?
Well, it’s time we figured that out. So you think about it, and I’ll think about it – and keep reading – and we’ll come together again soon.
I’d love to hear your comments! Replies welcome.
