If you are struggling to make time for your goals because of all the current demands on your time, you need to read this book. Learn how to stop saying yes to the good so you can start having time for the best.
I was forever changed by this book. I finally wrote a book from start to finish and even got it up for sale on Amazon by repeating over and over what I learned in The ONE Thing. This is a book you need to read at least once a year to see where you have become distracted and get focused again.
Here is a snippet from the book description: In The ONE Thing, you’ll learn to *cut through the clutter *achieve better results in less time *build momentum toward your goal *dial down the stress *overcome that overwhelmed feeling *revive your energy *stay on track *master what matters to you. The ONE Thing delivers extraordinary results in every area of your life–work, personal, family, and spiritual. WHAT’S YOUR ONE THING?
Essentialism will get you to rethink everything you do with your time. It will help give your main priorities the time they deserve.
Here is a snippet from the book description: The Way of the Essentialist isn’t about getting more done in less time. It’s about getting only the right things done. It is not a time management strategy or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not so we can make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter.
If you have trouble focusing on one thing at a time, the egg timer method described in this short book will help.
Here is a snippet from the book description: “One of the biggest excuses for not creating the change we want is that we are convinced we just don’t have the time. We’re already on overload. How can we possibly fit one more thing in? We’re convinced we have not a moment to do those things we have to do, much less what we yearn most to.
It Takes An Egg Timer, a Guide to Creating the Time for Your Life intends to prove that excuse wrong. You do have enough time–for everything you have to do and want to, and then some. It’s just a question of what you are letting get in the way.”
6. Born To Win
If you want to be motivated. If you want to believe you can reach your goal. You need to read this book and when you feel once again like you can’t, read it again.
This is a short book that probably won’t take you more than an afternoon to read, but it is packed with great information that will help you break down your goal into manageable steps and do what you need to do to make it happen.
