REPOST: THE ONE THING

THIS IS FLORA’S SUMMARY. I FIND IT INVIGORATING.

Key Insights (Pretty much the exact same as what Kobe has been telling me)

– Extraordinary results are determined by how narrow you can make your focus
– Do fewer things for more effect instead of doing more things with side effects
– Small dominos can topple much larger dominos; stack them right
– Success is built sequentially
– Not everything deserves equal time
– Achievers always work from a clear sense of priority
– Mulitasking is a lie and it does not work
– Discipline and habit intersect
– It takes 66 days to create a habit
– Become a person of powerful habits
– Willpower is limited
– Success = Being appropriate in the moments of your life
– Connecting purpose, priority, and productivity determines how high above the rest successful individuals and profitable businesses rise
– Happiness happens on the way to fulfillment
– Purpose without priority is powerless
– Resting is as important as working
– To experience extra ordinary results, be a maker in the morning and a manager in the afternoon (See Paul Graham’s article: Maker’s Schedule, Manager’s Schedule)
– Personal energy mismanagement is a silent thief of productivity
– Your environment must support your goals

Practical Application
– Create a success list as compared to a to-do list
– Say “no” more
– Be like a surgeon and avoid distractions; respect my work
– Ask quality questions
– Determine my “System”
– After you have picked your one thing, your number one priority should be protecting the time you use to work with your ONE thing.
– You should reserve four hours of non-interrupted time from your day only to work with your ONE thing.
