What's the One Thing?

One Thing.jpg

When my kids are firing questions at me and all speaking at the same time, here's what I say to them.

"I can do one thing well or two things badly. You choose."

We all have so many competing priorities, that we so often fall into the trap of doing lots of things together. I'm a big believer in applying the 80-20 principle wherever I can. The extension of the 80-20 principle is to keep going until you find the one thing that makes more difference than anything else. Once you find that, make that your focus and make sure that is the first thing that you do each day.

So, here's my question to you:

What's the one thing you can do today that will have the single biggest impact on your world and will make everything else easier or unnecessary?

Have an awesome day


PS. Last month I did a podcast with Ben Cattaneo - the Chief Risk Advisor at British Telecom. It was great fun and ran on for a bit. You can listen to the full podcast here.
