One Thing Presentation Transcript

  • 1. ONETHING What the heck is it? by Mozammel Haque With notes from:The ONEThing Keller, Gary; Papasan, Jay (2013-04-01) 

  • 2. Well, if everyone has the same amount of time and yet some earn more than others can we then say that it’s how we use our time that determines how successful we are in our life?
  • 4. Instead of a to-do list, you need a success list — a list that is purposefully created around extraordinary results. A to-do list becomes a success list when you apply 80/20 rule to it
  • 5. You can actually take 20 percent of the 20 percent of the 20 percent and continue until you get to the single most important thing!
  • 6. Extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow you can make your focus.
  • 7. Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least. The things which are most important don’t always scream the loudest.
  • 8. Each standing domino represents a small amount of potential energy; the more you line up, the more potential energy you’ve accumulated. Line up enough and, with a simple flick, you can start a chain reaction of surprising power.
  • 9. Find the lead domino, and whack away at it until it falls.
  • 10. Do your most important work— your ONEThing — early
  • 11. APPLE Apple is a study in creating an environment where an extraordinary ONEThing can exist while transitioning to another extraordinary ONE Thing. In the two years after his return in 1997, Jobs took the company from 350 products to ten.That’s 340 nos, not counting anything else proposed during that period.
  • 12. The art of saying yes is, by default, the art of saying no. A request must be connected to my ONEThing for me to consider it. If you don’t make your life about what you say yes to, then it will almost certainly become what you intended to say no to. saying NO is actually sayingYES
  • 13. What’s the ONEThing I can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary? OneThing
  • 14. ONEThing “right now” is nested inside your ONE Thing today which is nested inside your ONEThing this week, which is nested inside your ONEThing this month... . It’s how a small thing can actually build up to a big one. ! You’re lining up your dominoes.
  • 15. Until my ONEThing is done — everything else is a distraction. The more productive people are, the more purpose and priority are pushing and driving them.
  • 16. Leaders: Be a maker in the morning and a manager in the afternoon.
  • 17. Be so great at it that the world can’t help but gives you an audience for it. Live the ONEThing YOU ARETHE FIRST DOMINO
