Brajesh's Review : The One Thing

The starting premise of "The One Thing " looks overly simplistic, in today’s multi-dimensional, VUCA world, how can one achieve success by focussing only on one thing?

The essential logic being -taking Pareto’s 80:20 to the maximum. However as one goes through the chapters, the author beautifully dismisses many a standard myths to build his case. My personal myths were “multi-tasking”, “work-life balance” and “everything mattering equally”.

Post dismissing the myths the Gary Keller & Jay Papasan then build on the model in the second and third sections. I particularly liked the time management section, one of the best I have heard. Which advises to first block the vacation time, and then work between vacations.

While the book had limited appeal as a guide, it was a good read as counter-points and alternate success model.

Rating : 3.5/5
