What’s the ONE Thing you (or your team) can do this week such that by doing it, everything else would be easier or unnecessary?
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.
In this episode, Jesse shares what he’s learned from chapter 1 of the book The ONE Thing and provides examples of applying the lessons.
What is the ONE Thing standing between you and your goals? To help identify your ONE Thing, you may find it helpful to ask yourself (or your team) these additional questions:
- If you could work only two hours per week, what would you do?
- What if I could only subtract to solve problems? What should I simplify? What should I put on my not-to-do list?
- Am I hunting antelope or field mice?
- When looking at your to-do list, which one to-do would render all the rest either easier or unnecessary?
- What would this look like if it were easy?
