TheThe One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary 

The One Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan is an excellent self 
help book which explains how to prioritize tasks when there 
are an avalanche of things to get done in the near term. 
The book shows how people quickly lose focus and accomplish 
little or nothing in an attempt to get too many things done 
on an immediate basis.
 
The authors advise people to stick to one thing or a few things 
until completion before taking on other tasks. This translates 
to narrowing focus. A corollary is that one thing at a time 
advances the world. In addition, do the most important thing 
first when everything seems to matter. A related concept is 
to choose to do the right things correctly.
 
The authors discuss the behavioral dimensions of getting 
things done too. Once a new behavior becomes a habit, 
less discipline is required to maintain the new way of 
doing things. Habits are important because these instilled 
behaviors help to determine our future success.
 
The book discusses analysis paralysis and the stultifying 
effect this has on getting anything done. In essence, the 
new rule is to get ahead by getting started. Mark Twain 
warns people of internalized biases in the popular phrase: 
“What you know for sure that just ain’t so.”
 
The One Thing is a wonderful book which addresses the dangers 
of analysis paralysis and the lack of focus in trying to wade 
through too many items on the agenda. The authors make it 
clear how to set priorities to begin getting the right things 
done the right way. This book will benefit management at virtually 
every level in an organization.

The presentation is enjoyable and very easy to read. In addition, this book could benefit people in addressing chronic behavioral issues ; such as, post traumatic stress disorder and even attention deficit disorder. The authors spend quite a bit of time teaching readers how to prioritize and focus their attention on one thing long enough to get it done correctly. In addition, the book teaches how to develop good habits for doing things right now or at all.
Great Material!
