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.
