In this episode of Hardcore MBA Erlend Bakke, #1 Bestselling author of Never Work Again, talks to Jay Papasan, one of the authors of the best-selling book, “The One Thing” (750 000 copies sold), a book that can effectively transform one’s productivity by focusing on “the one most important thing” in one’s business and get surprisingly extraordinary results. You need to ask yourself the focusing questions every morning and schedule time blocks to get that one thing done. What is the focusing question?
“What’s the ONE Thing I can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”
- How Jay and co-author and billionaire business partner, Gary Keller, came up with the idea of the ONE Thing nine years ago.
- How to practically apply the principles of “The One Thing” including overcoming resistance to do what matters most and we discuss how Elon Musk’s success is largely based on the ONE Thing principles.
- How skills taught in “The One Thing” are developable, can be learned, practiced, and mastered over time in the same way that Jay has witnessed in his own company where the principles are actively lived out everyday.
Erlend´s questions effectively navigate the conversation to provide you with actionable and practical applications of the book’s tools such as the 66-days challenge for developing a new habit, the use of the Pareto Principle, figuring out what’s most important, the domino effect, and time blocking.
