This review is pretty short and sweet. I truly enjoyed reading The ONE thing and I devoured it within less than 3 days. I shared some high points below.
Why am I telling you this? It’s not woe is me, I promise. I actually have a point so you can put your tiny violin away.
I was sitting here taking this training to improve my business to better help my clients. Yesterday happened because my business is improving, because I am improving.
And I realized some things about my business that I wanted to share with you.
- The key points are already highlighted. And as a chronic highlighter & underliner, I absolutely loved this.
- There are drawings, illustrations, and a very clear breakdown.
- Part of the closing is “putting it to work” and the different areas of your life where you can.
- I love books with action steps and bite-sized breakdowns and get completely actionable immediately.
- The theme continues beautifully, flawlessly, and unfailingly throughout.
- After the first 100 pages, there’s an example of something that reminded me of an episode of the Office. Michael Scott is in a room with the board before they sell out and he sits down and says “okay, so we need a plan to do this. How do we get there?” and tries to reverse engineer a plan backward from the end goal.
- They also discuss one of Dickens’ classics. I love work that takes lessons from the classics and reframes them in a beautiful and actionable way. And in this case, it’s that our purpose determines who we are.
- Dr. Martin Seligan, the past president of the American Psychological Association, believes there are five factors that contribute to our happiness: positive emotion and pleasure, achievement, relationships, engagement, and meaning. Of these, he believes engagement and meaning are the most important.
