Welcome to our newest series of articles focused on a best-selling, high-impact leadership book. The featured book for this series is titled The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results, written by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan. If you study and apply the concepts, principles and truths within this book, you will experience a significant and positive difference in your life, your leadership and your healthcare organization.
As described by the authors and booksellers, “The ONE Thing explains the successful habit to overcome the six lies that block our success, beat the seven thieves that steal time, and leverage the laws of purpose, priority, and productivity.” Without question, everyone – even the most successful – can benefit from studying this book.
We all desire fewer distractions and less on our plates. The daily barrage of emails, tweets, messages and meetings distract and many times overwhelm us. Add the many demands of work and family… and the result is often second-rate work, missed personal and professional opportunities, and less joy and fulfillment in all areas of our lives.
Yet we all want more in terms of meaningful productivity, satisfaction, income, success and time with family and close friends.
During this series of articles featuring The ONE Thing, we will focus on specific issues and opportunities for growth and improvement that are discussed in the book, such as:
- Cut through the clutter
- Achieve better results in less time
- Build momentum toward your goal
- Dial down the stress
- Overcome that overwhelmed feeling
- Revive your energy
- Stay on track
- Master what matters to you
In essence, The ONE Thing was written to help leaders, like you and me, deliver extraordinary results in every area of our lives – work, personal, family, and spiritual.
Please stay tuned as we address many critical issues faced by all healthcare leaders. Also, for even better results, I encourage you to buy a copy of the book anywhere best-selling books are sold. Join us as we discuss and discover the huge, powerful and life-changing impact of discovering “The One Thing” that is most important to each of us at any given time. Not only will we discuss discovering the “The One Thing,” we will discuss application and consistency over time so it can become a reality in your life.
