Book Review – The One Thing, Keller and Papasan

 Gary W. Keller and book cover of The One Thing

Book Review

The One Thing by Keller and Papasan is one of the best books I have ever read. Read and think about how these principles will impact your Success:


1. Everything Matter Equally – (Things are never equal).

2. Multitasking – (Not an effective thing to do).

3. A Disciplined Life – (The need to direct and manage discipline better).

4. Willpower Is Always on Will-Call – (What does will-power really mean?).

5. A balanced Life – (Nothing ever achieves absolute balance)

6. Big is Bad – (Big and bad are not inherently related).”

“The six lies are beliefs that get into our heads and become operational principles driving us the wrong way. Highways that end as bunny trails. Fool’s gold that diverts us from the mother lode. If we’re going to maximize our potential, we’re going to have to make sure we put these lies to bed.”

I highly recommend this book!!!
