EXTRAORDINARY
DISCUSSION GUIDE
THE SURPRISINGLY SIMPLE
T O A C H I E V I N G
© 2014 Rellek Publishing Partners, Ltd.
SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT
1.	 At what time in your life have you experienced success by narrowing your
concentration to ONE Thing? At what time in your life have you had the opposite
experience – less success because you were spread too thin?
2.	In chapter 1, do you agree with the authors’ statement: “Extraordinary results are
directly determined by how narrow you can make your focus”? (refer to page 10)
3.	 What is an example of one product, service, person, passion, or skill that leads
an individual or company to success that was not discussed in the book? Why
was that singular attribute so important to the individual or company’s ultimate
success?
4.	In chapter 6, the authors discuss how it takes an average of 66 days to build
a habit. What habit, if you worked to develop it, would supercharge your
productivity? (refer to page 57)
5.	In A Balanced Life (chapter 7), the authors write, “In your effort to attend to all
things, everything gets shortchanged and nothing gets its due.” Have you had
this experience in your own life, and what are some actionable solutions you’ve
found? (refer to page 75)
6.	 The book says that the question of balance is really a question of priority. What
kinds of priorities – in work or life – are worth going out of balance for? For how
long?
Welcome to The ONE Thing Discussion Guide! We created this
group guide as a way for you to examine the book’s concepts
and share your aha’s from The ONE Thing with others – friends,
colleagues, family or even complete strangers. Feel free to run
through each question, or pick and choose talking points that speak
specifically to you and your group. Keep in mind, each question is
designed to spark deeper conversation and allow readers to draw
their own conclusions on how to live a BIG life, both professionally
and personally. Enjoy your discussion!
THE ONE THING DISCUSSION GUIDE 3
7.	 The book states in chapter 9, “No one knows their ultimate ceiling for
achievement, so worrying about it is a waste of time.” What are some common
limiting beliefs we see every day? What are some of your limiting beliefs? (refer
to page 86)
8.	 What is the Focusing Question? Why were the authors so specific in their
wording?
9.	 What are the seven buckets in your life? (reference figure 16 on page 114)
10.	In the chapter on the Success Habit (chapter 11), the authors tell us, “Happiness
happens on the way to fulfillment.” How does purpose help you achieve
fulfillment? (refer to page 142)
11.	Which parts of your day are most important to you? How do you currently block
time for those areas?
12.	Chapter 16 reads, “Most assume mastery is an end result, but at its core, mastery
is a way of thinking, a way of acting, and a journey you experience.” What does
this statement mean to you? (refer to page 176)
13.	Let’s look at figure 31 on pages 180-181. What areas of your life do you
approach entrepreneurially? Purposefully? How different are the results?
14.	Take a few moments to recall the Four Thieves of productivity that the authors
discuss in chapter 17. Which thief resonates the most with your own life, and
how does it affect your productivity? Have you found ways to navigate around it?
15. What does living a life of no regret mean to you?
16.	In The Journey (chapter 18), the authors write, “Put yourself together, and your
world falls into place. When you bring purpose to your life, know your priorities,
and achieve high productivity on the priority that matters most every day, your
life makes sense and the extraordinary becomes possible.” Let’s discuss. (refer to
page 216)
17.	How are you going to incorporate the principles of The ONE Thing into your life?
 
© 2014 Rellek Publishing Partners, Ltd.
ENGAGE FURTHER WITH THE BOOK
1.	 Draw out your dominoes: What is the first thing you need to knock over to set
great things into motion in your life? For example, to achieve peak physical
health, your first domino is to get proper sleep, then eat well, and finally, exercise
regularly.
2.	 Keep a log on how you spend your time during the day, noting your energy levels
throughout the day as well. Discuss your aha’s.
3.	 Start a new habit. Print out the 66-Day Calendar from the Tools and Forms section
of the Resources tab on the1thing.com, and challenge yourself to make a positive
change in your life.
4.	Revisit pages 162-170 in the book. Time block the following on your own
calendar: 1. Time block your time off, 2. Time block your ONE Thing, 3. Time
block your planning time.

The ONE Thing: Book Discussion Guide

  • 2. © 2014 Rellek Publishing Partners, Ltd. SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT 1. At what time in your life have you experienced success by narrowing your concentration to ONE Thing? At what time in your life have you had the opposite experience – less success because you were spread too thin? 2. In chapter 1, do you agree with the authors’ statement: “Extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow you can make your focus”? (refer to page 10) 3. What is an example of one product, service, person, passion, or skill that leads an individual or company to success that was not discussed in the book? Why was that singular attribute so important to the individual or company’s ultimate success? 4. In chapter 6, the authors discuss how it takes an average of 66 days to build a habit. What habit, if you worked to develop it, would supercharge your productivity? (refer to page 57) 5. In A Balanced Life (chapter 7), the authors write, “In your effort to attend to all things, everything gets shortchanged and nothing gets its due.” Have you had this experience in your own life, and what are some actionable solutions you’ve found? (refer to page 75) 6. The book says that the question of balance is really a question of priority. What kinds of priorities – in work or life – are worth going out of balance for? For how long?
