In order for success to be achieved. Repetition is necessary and when that is the case, the book gets placed in my Reference library ( in this case my iPhone audible ) so I can listen to pieces of it daily. Whether it be how I use my calendar, the way I time block the way I time block, how I keep accountable and review results ... This book has great elements to add if you want to be successful in this game called life.
I always knew successful people have unique skills that help them push through barriers most especially productivity hacks. This book explains the core skill for success... Knowing your one thing.
Very practical. Relatable and a great smooth listen. It's like a teacher that checks in on pieces of my life every time I press play.
It could have been short. Gets a little monotonous in the middle. The beggining is enlightening ofcourse. It gets really good and inspiring towards the end. I was considering not finishing the book in the middle. But really glad I finished it.
Easy to listen to.
Very good to be reminded of.
Easy concept, if used it can make a huge difference.
Simply amazing advice. Lots of great advice the way he explains and give information is easy to understand and actually apply right away to your own life.
"5 out 5"
This is my 5 question system for appraising business and management books. It isn't perfect but it works for me, I hope you find it useful...
Have I incorporated in my business or how I run my business any learnings from this book? Yes.Did feel I wa nted to understand really understand the book in depth, make notes and apply the content? Yes.Is it a book I’ve gone back to in order to check I really get the ideas and concepts so I can apply them? Yes.Is it a book I keep to hand on my mobile, where space is at a premium, so I can re-listen as and when? Yes.Finally, is it a book that has brought insights and moved me forward? Yes.Comments...Stick with it - I found it was literally 2 hrs in before it really got going. I have changed my goal setting system based on insights from this book. The narration is a touch irritating and the "musac" jingle but don't that put you off.
"Interesting, educational and a great listen!"
I found the audio edition much more engaging than reading a print version, it kept me interested from start to finish!
They kept me interested and made the stories flow nicely!
"A re-hash of the original '7 Habits' !"
It focuses on 'one thing'
Yes. Easy to listen to, although Claire Hamilton's accent is a little too 'Cheesy American' for this Englishman.
Probably not. But possible.
This is a rather shameless duplication and re-hash of 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People'. If you have read '7 Habits' then it's an OK revision of the principles, stated slightly differently. If you haven't. forget this and read '7 Habits of Highly Effective People' by Dr Stephen Covey. It is much better.
They refer to several studies and findings from other books on the same subjects, but in the audiobook they don't refer to the studies or credit other authors. Whereas 'The Power of Habit' by Charles Duhigg addresses this subtopic of the power of Habits in much more detail and complete with properly referenced source material.
Perhaps I should nick a bit from all the authors I have read and re-publish it under a catchy name!
"Makes you focus on what's important"
Worth a listen. It can seem simplistic on refraction but the message is correct , you can only do thing well at any time!
"My favorite book"
I would say it's one of the best books.
Don't think it's comparable just think the other books are wasted compared to this one.
I felt like this is the only book I ever need to listen to. Simplify everything other books makes complicated
Would listen to this book again and again and again and again.....
This book made me cringe from the outset with cheesy management and platitudes. Big Goals, Big Question, Mastery is a path not a destination. To get the right answers ask the right questions......uurgh
Yes, a bit.
I've listened to some fantastic books on Audible, sadly this wasn't one of them. From my point of view this is a simplistic book and a classic case of cramming 30 minutes of material into several hours.
It was a reasonably good listen but I found the narrators style distracting. good overall message.. A lot of other ideas recycled in a new way.
If the author didn't feel the need to write 'The One Thing' every two sentences, this would get more than 1 point. I've already bought the book, you don't have to sell it me again. Extremely irritating.
Like many other books, you just need to find that one golden nugget that will make it worth your while. This book has a few hidden treasures inside. Highly recommend it!
