Publisher's Summary

This is a book summary of The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan.
Book description:
You want less.
You want fewer distractions and less on your plate. The daily barrage of emails, texts, tweets, messages, and meetings distract you and stress you out. The simultaneous demands of work and family are taking a toll. And what's the cost? Second-rate work, missed deadlines, smaller paychecks, fewer promotions - and lots of stress.
And you want more.
You want more productivity from your work. More income for a better lifestyle. You want more satisfaction from life and more time for yourself, your family, and your friends.
Now you can have both: less and more.
In The One Thing, you'll learn to:

Cut through the clutter
Achieve better results in less time
Build momentum toward your goal
Dial down the stress
Overcome that overwhelmed feeling
Revive your energy
Stay on track
Master what matters to you

The One Thing delivers extraordinary results in every area of your life - work, personal, family, and spiritual.

This book made the WSJ Best Seller List? Huh?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The listening experience was fine; the content was B-O-R-I-N-G and regurgitated from many others prior to him. If you have just come of age, like a high school or college grad, this might be relevant for you but it's not anything new under the sun for any consummate business professional.

Would you ever listen to anything by FlashBooks again?

Yes I would. This is my first time listening to a summary of a book.

Would you be willing to try another one of Dean Bokhari’s performances?

He did a good job reading the summary and whomever put the summary together I'm sure took the most important points. I cannot possibly imagine taking this material and creating a book out of it. I got what I needed in 30 minutes vs a 5-1/2 hour book.
