Customer Reviews

Advocating relentless focus on a single objective.

By Craig Matteson
Business books are always an interesting problem. Are they a prop to sell consulting gigs? Are they stretched out one note ideas? Or do they pull off something worthwhile and can they really aid someone find the business success they are seeking?

motivational over practial

By Reid Mccormick
There is beauty in simplicity; in nature, art, business, science and everything in between.

Life is too short to chase unicorns….learn to FOCUS!

By S. J. Swanepoel
This week Gary and co-author Jay Papasan publishes their next book — The ONE Thing. I had an opportunity to read an advance copy and there is no doubt that this book will surge to the top New York Times best seller list this month!

It is OK, nothing more.

By Jack Reader
If you think “The ONE Thing” is an acronym, you are wrong. It is indeed “One Thing” and many little others. Considering that this book took 4 years, research and Gary Keller’s tremendous (and oft-repeated) teaching experience to create it is surprisingly short on originality and substance.

Give it a little time…The ONE Thing’s appeal will become clear

By Josh Freeman
I got introduced to The ONE Thing through 12booksgroup.com, an interesting online book club that explores business books. They held an online webinar with co-author Jay Papasan that was a nice addition to the reading experience.

How this simple but profound question changed my thinking

By Joe T.
I read The ONE Thing several days before going into the Grand Canyon for a 5-day solo retreat and took with me a slight variation on the question posed in the book: What is the one thing that, if accomplished, would facilitate every other goal that we have at Values Coach? On the flight to Arizona I wrote out what I thought would be my answer in a journal (it had to do with creating new teaching materials around our core course on personal values). But after living with the question for those 5 days, I came out of The Canyon with a completely different answer – and it is an answer that has gained unanimous support of the rest of the crew. What made the question so powerful was the way in which it forced me to think in terms of priorities – not “either / or” but “what one thing comes first.” With that, it became clear that achieving critical mass with another product that had been one of several priorities would make everything else a whole lot easier – and with that, it becomes a whole lot easier to make the commitment to saying “not yet” to those other priorities.

Good but not original

By Tony Vehon
I enjoyed this book and it was an easy read. I didn’t find any of the concepts new or original, but a great reminder on how to stay focused and continually look for the one thing you should be focusing on.

Focus on One Course Until Success

By Leland Ahkit
The word ‘focus’ can be described in many ways, but I believe that the best description is this: ‘Focus on One Course Until Success’

The One Thing – A book with the potential to change your life!

By J. Olson
Summarize in 1 paragraph: The One Thing builds a case that the most important thing people can do in all areas of life is to continually ask themselves the question: “what is the one thing I can do right now that will move me toward my goals?” It’s written by Gary Keller, a man who is qualified to speak on this issue as he has built a successful real estate business, made a name for himself as an author and speaker, and has managed to not lose perspective on the things that are most important.
