Book Review – “The One Thing” by Gary Keller with Jay Papasan


“If you chase two rabbits, you will not catch either one”

The primary aim of the book was to talk about focus and the surprising extraordinary results you can get when you focus. It was a nice and easy read, with each chapter ending with a summary of that chapter noted under the heading as Big Ideas. My take away from this book was:

Super-successful people aren’t superhuman at all; they’ve just used selected discipline to develop a few significant habits. One at a time. Over time. Habits on average, take 66 days to form.
