A fantastic read as far as self help books go. It’s a genre I do not typically dive too far into, but this book was recommended to me by someone who I consider quite wise and successful, so I figured I’d give it a go.

I read this one slowly, trying to put each chapter into practice after reading it. I often read it on my lunch hour at work and then found my afternoons getting more and more productive.

The book encourages you to find The One Thing that by doing it will make everything else in your life easier or unnecessary. There is a lot of grandiose planning encouraged, which I didn’t dive too far into, however, I took simple lessons and put them into practice.

This book doesn’t re-invent the wheel on productivity. It simply points out a lot of things I already knew, but wasn’t putting into practice. Things as simple as doing one thing at a time.

I loved the lesson; To do two things at once is to do neither well. I think a lot of people pride themselves on being excellent “multitaskers”, and this book proves that there is no such thing. By doing a few things at a time you’re doing all of them poorly (likely).

Get ready to fold some pages down and take notes, this book is going to provide you with some solid pointers on being more efficient in your day to day life.

I’m rating this one 5/5 stars because of my book rating rule; if I instantly want to recommend it to a friend, it’s 5/5 material. I even leant my own copy of this one out…and that’s a big step for me.
