Everything Matters Equally – NOT, When You Pursue Your ONE THING

Posted by Douglas Wick on Mon, Dec 18, 2017

Just returned from 10 days traveling of Annual and Quarterly Planning with my customers. I want to press upon you and your business, the importance of The One Thing.  It’s critical to make your 2018 successful.  Focus is a critical part of achievement.  In today’s world it’s easy to be distracted. In our last blog on Multitasking, Eliminate Multi-tasking - Achieve 28% Greater Productivity, we shared time the average time per day a desk job employee loses to interruptions and distractions (2.1 hours). We shared how being distracted lowers your IQ by up to 10 points.  Focus is important to productivity and concentration. When you believe everything matters equally, you are majoring in minors.  Today’s blog is a repeat of my introductory blog, The Six Lies Between You and Success. Thursday I plan to share further insights into the “Everything Matters Equally” Lie from Gary Keller’s  The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results, as well as helpful insights on the results my customers achieve from using the One Thing principle in their business.
