Publisher's Summary

This is a concise and clear summary of Gary Keller and Jay Papasan's book: The One Thing.

We want less. We want less stress. We want fewer things to distract us. With today's constant bombardment from all kinds of technologically induced communication, as well as busyness from meetings, work, and responsibilities of personal life, we get tired. The results are that we don't handle any of it well; the quality of our work declines, we miss deadlines, our paychecks get smaller, and our promotions don't happen.

But we also want more. We want increased productivity from work. We want more income so we can improve our lifestyle. We want life satisfaction. We want more time to spend on ourselves, with our families, and with our friends. Having both less and more is not mutually exclusive!

Following the principles taught in The One Thing will bring about amazing results that affect everything in all areas of your work, your personal life, your family life, and your spiritual life.

This summary is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the current time to devour the whole book. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer.

Ant Hive Media reads every chapter, extracts the understanding, and leaves you with a new perspective and time to spare. We do the work so you can understand the book in minutes, not hours.

Basic information on the importance of focus

Great summary of The one thing . In this world of constant inturuptions and distractions it is important to realize that if you really want to master somthing spending some uninterupted time of study and practice is critical to that mastery.

Ant Hive Media has turned into my go to books when I want to understand the core of the subject without any of the fillers.
Another job well done.

Good as a summary but definitely read the full book!

I’ve listened to the full book four times already and wanted to see how good a summary of it would be. As a summary it was OK, when comparing it with other summaries I suppose, however don’t think that this is a substitute for reading the full book- it’s not. Although the full book takes some five hours to listen to, it’s well worth the time put in.
