To succeed in life, you need just one thing
If that’s true, then the best diet is the simplest one. So I asked myself: what’s the one thing I can change that will make the biggest difference in my calorie consumption? Everyone has one thing.
When Peter Bregman says “everyone,” he means everyone and everything. His suggestion is, well, quite singular: To be successful in life—whether you are dieting, starting a business, or even planning a sabbatical—the trick is to identify the one thing that carries the most influence and pour your existence into that one task. He writes:
Typically, people overwhelm themselves with tasks in their eagerness to make a change successfully. But that’s a mistake. Instead, they should take the time up front to figure out the one and only thing that will have the highest impact and then focus 100% of their effort on that one thing.
What would happen in your professional or personal life if you concentrated on one single, ragingly important aspect? What would that be? A thought-provoking and important question for anyone.
(On a completely stylistic note, this posts rocks. It is a masterfully guided, personally rich blog post with swagger. Enjoy!)
