The One Thing You Should Have Learned in High School to Go for Gold…A Simple Path To RESULTS!
WHAT IS YOURS, THE ONE THING?
You see, as a business startup, a newbie blogger, new in online marketing or whatever your hustle is, you will be distracted!
Now that we got that monkey off to play, lets get clear on how you can focus on the one thing you need to do in order to produce your desired results sooner rather than later!
Shall we…? When we first started out, boy did I run down rabbit holes…Getting lost in one email after another, clicking on one freebie after another, subscribing to this magic bullet or other to get people to buy today. Frankly speaking there are so many high faluted promises of success online. Mostly, hyped up promises; their sister, cousin and shitty mates!
I would go to bed more confused than before and more frustrated to boot…Where was the drated success I was promised? Well Paul, bless him, sat me down and asked me some hard questions and I literally found the same kind of tough love in the book: The One Thing by Gary Keller.
By the way, you gotta get this book and read it, and you can find your copy on amazon here!
Welcome back, and I know you are gonna love that book, so let me fan that fire right here so you can be open to soak in its sheer goodness. Consider this your very own mini review of The One Thing.
It should NOT in anyway deter you from getting your book so you can learn the deeper lesson. Okay dokey…
So many distractions every day, lots of emails, chats, social media notifications, work meetings, work goals etc…All heading to one destination; frustration-ville!
You are ending up paying a huge price: living a mediocre life and career, no promotions, and well in your love life; maybe settling for Mr Right now as opposed to attracting Mr right!
And having looked in my glass ball, I know you DESIRE MORE from your life. Your life purpose or work, income, you want that feeling of “Yay I won the jackpot” and you can!
I found that sweet zen spot from the lessons learnt from ; you guessed it: The ONE Thing. And you too can declutter your mind and life and create a life and business/career you love and loves you! The one thing technique if applied to your life will bring you daily closer to your your desired result, whatever that may be!
The ONE Thing has won 12 book awards, translated into more than 25 languages, it was voted one of Top 100 Business Books of All Time on Goodreads. You gotta go buy it and read the book!

THE ONE THING – A SIMPLE PATH TO RESULTS
Lessons from “The One Thing!” Gary Keller
What is the Most Important thing that you should be working on based on your Grand Scheme or Life Purpose, and thus the only thing you should be doing until you achieve it…i.e. get your Gold?
In layman’s terms please Julie: — What’s the ONE Thing I can do right now to improve my life?
I am gonna share with you 5 nuggets I gleaned from The One Thing book that I have applied to my life and business!
These will help you towards creating that Productive Day EVERY DAY and achieving way more than you dreamed of!
#1. Multi Switch as opposed to Multi-Tasking…
Did you know that jugglers catch and throw 1 ball at a time very rapidly…They are switching between processes really fast and if they do it effectively and be present while they do, they create results? You see They Take Hours and Hours, months, even years of FOCUSED practice to build that level of skill up! They are NOT multi tasking!
Most people can’t do this, they can’t focus on THE ONE THING effectively enough to get results…so they end up short circuiting AKA Multi-Tasking! ☹ = More mistakes, time distortion, poor decision making.
YOU CANNOT FOCUS EFFETIVELY ON 2 THINGS…
#2. Work Your Biz/Career Until It Pays You…
And I am not talking about a hand to mouth bill paying wage… I am talking a life changing income!
Do mix and Match…the life bucket; what do I mean by this? Well, don’t ignore your life, health, family and friends…these never come back. And why are you hustling anyway? To buy your time back right? So take time out to enjoy these things, they are mostly FREE!
And the work bucket…? Quite simply, look out for opportunities to make your Goals and VISION happen faster! Note that I say Vision, why? Because, this one should be Set in Stone…even though the goals and means to get to it can change!
“The Trick to Success is to Choose the right habit and bring just enough discipline to establish it”
#3. The One Thing: Success is Sequential Actions…
If you wish to enjoy our life before you are too long in the tooth, understand this:
Success is a sprint filled by discipline just long enough for habit to kick in and take over. So, self-discipline is not necessarily the key. Rather, SOME disciplines need to be in place to form success habits at both the daily micro level and the Bigger Macro Goal level.
Form a habit to focus on One Action that gets you closer to your results.
How about you also, form habits of giving your loved ones’ time, often!
Form a habit of Giving You time…Doing the most valuable things will fast track your results…
As stated earlier; the Trick to Success is to choose the right habit and bring just enough discipline to establish it…
In order to do this, you MUST have a system in place to help you automate some of your processes. In our case, we cannot be grateful enough for this system and community. Without it, we probably we would have quit a long time ago. If you are on the cusp of quitting on your dream, give it a go you just might surprise yourself and make your first 10K online in less than 6 months too!
#4. OWN YOUR SUCCESS…
Truth be told, most people are unsuccessful in their goals because they always find someone/thing else to blame for their lack of it. If you outsource this, you will not succeed!
So own your success in its entirety, own it, acknowledge reality, seek the divine in your reality and thus make no excuses for whatever happens in your life.
Always remember: any request from anybody else…MUST RELATE TO YOUR Purpose…so don’t subscribe to other people’s emergencies, unless they are your emergency!
Your environment must support your goals as well…meditation, affirmations, exercise, what you eat…so you can produce, create and problem solve daily to have an effective day!
#5. Let Your Passion Drive What You Do
And embrace delayed gratification…(aka will power). For instance, we allowed ourselves the will power to avoid pubs, partying, throwing extravagant do’s to build our property. See, your will power can only hold out for so long…So, set your short term and long-term goals…without these your mind will start to think this is too much hard work…and your will power to keep going flees…And Oops you quit!
So, there is a time and season for everything, make sure to set a time to PLAY…in your daily 24 hours. Do something that make YOU smile inside. That will trigger the feel-good hormones and you will be able to continue with your Passion and building a Business and Life that Loves You!
