As another reader said: for those who don't have a firm grasp of the obvious. Just stresses focusing on one thing that is important which will solve other issues. There. You've read it too. Plenty of better books on business and life problem solving/focus.
Simply ridiculously repetitive! Finally called it quits about half way through when I got sick of hearing "The one thing" repeated by the narrator for about the 100th time.
High drama for poorly written book is simply a lame attempt to bring it to life.
Just felt like a magazine article someone felt like putting in book form.
May you build a ladder to the stars, and climb on every rung... May your heart always be joyful, and your song always be sung.- RA Zimmerman
The secret: concentrate on ONE thing at a time.
How does it take 5 1/2 hours to get to ONE Firm Grasp?
Add ONE happy song, ONE ton of guitar filler and (my ONE compliment to the authors is their skill to) say ONE thing ONE Hundred different ways.
Don't waste your time on this book. Just repeat "The one (fill in any noun here)" to yourself. It will be equivalent to reading/listening to this book. For example: The one goal, the one question, the one skill, the one activity, the one job. It starts to get old really quick.
Where do I start talking about a book so transformative it leaves you in awe of the potential in yourself. I have been a lifelong student of business and life and I am awash with new vigor after listening to the book. I also own the hard copy.
The One Thing. So simple, so unbelievably profound.
I really like Claire's voice outlining and reinforcing core elements. Nice touch. I liked Tim too all excellent.
Yes. A few laughs yes. No crying.
Do this. Get the book and do what they lay out. In my life I've achieved really cool milestones but still feel like it's not enough. Family, relationships, business, spiritually, all benefit from the strategy for better living in this book.
Needs some original, thought provoking content.
This book is lacking not only in original content but also in substance. It takes 5 hours to convey a message that could have been condensed into 2 hours. It was pain to listen to and I found it difficult to focus because the content is not thought provoking but instead is far too simplistic. While in theory his suggestions are great, in reality they are impractical in many professions and positions. Not a recommended read if you are looking to expand your mind.
A really good point, and interesting, but this could have been written in two chapters.
I got bored and could not get through to the end.
I teach WordPress web design online, focusing on the *design* part - and fun:) I love learning new concepts, hence all these audiobooks;)
Much much much better than expected. Everything is perfect about it:
1. Doesn't promote more stress and overwhelm. You're not asked to make lists, overwork yourself, etc – as it's often the case in other books in this genre.
2. It's so well-written. Engaging.
3. It's so well organised. Easy to follow and digest.
4. The method is sound and logical.
5. Perhaps related to point number three, but the music between the chapters add a positive note (pun intended) to the presentation and overall experience.
Such a keeper, this book.
We got the point, it just felt like beating a dead horse. The occasional anecdote was the only thing that made me rank it as high as I did.
It didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. It was boring and hard to listen to for extended periods of time.
VERY motivational!!! Easy listen. Clear and understandable. May be better to read a hard copy, just to be able to go back and review specific sections. FANTASTIC!!!!
One of the best, and I've listened to over 1000 over the years.
There were many. It's sounds too simple to work but I've increased what I get done daily by about 50% just after the 1rst listening, even more after the 2nd.
After reading so many books, it's hard to come by something that is mostly fresh, original and helpful. This book is all of that.
