Title – The One Thing

Author – Gary Keller & Jay Papasan

This book is incredible – Like, life-changing incredible!

If like me, you’re always looking at ways that you can improve your productivity and get more out of your work day, then you’ll inhale this book.

The One Thing is all about focus and about removing distractions so that you can be fully present at the task at hand. The principles covered in this book are designed to help you achieve goals. Not so much the ‘I want a big house and a Ferrari’ type of goal, but more the incremental stepping stones to help you get your house and Ferrari.

I genuinely hope that you learn as much from this book as I have. Gary Keller and Jay Papasan have absolutely killed it with this book, which is no doubt why it’s both a ‘New York Times’ and ‘Wall Street Journal’ bestseller.

Let me know what you think of The One Thing in the comments.

You can get your copy at Amazon.
Available formats: Paperback, eBook, Audiobook.

Great work Matt with all the podcasts and the site shed facebook community group. The amount of information that you can learn for free in this space is unbelieveable.

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
