#145: Jay Papasan–The ONE Thing: Focusing on Priorities, to Find the Priority

Is it true that we can slow down and accomplish more? Do you believe that focusing on ONE thing, can help you improve productivity and focus on many other things in your daily life? Jay Papasan shows us how to focus on our priorities, in order to find our priority. In the book, “The ONE Thing”, by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan, we learn how to focus on the ONE thing, to help us get clear on our vision and purposes, to take us to performance levels we might not have thought were possible.

My hope is that you are empowered to do more, by focusing on less, and drilling down on ONE thing to cut through the noise and clutter in our distracted lives. Let’s get crystal clear on our intentions by using the focusing question in this book:

“What’s the one thing I can do, such that by doing it, everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”.



Jay Papasan Notable Quotes:

“I’d rather be timeless, than timely”- Gary Keller

“Do I have enough time on my number one priority?”

What’s the one thing I can do, such that by doing it, everything else will be easier or unnecessary?

“When people did the number one thing, they almost always did all of the other tasks too”

“Whatever we choose to do, we want it to be something that has magnified results”

“Most people know the answer, but because we are so busy scurrying around doing all this other stuff, we don’t stop to ask it, write down the answer or get real clear on what our priority is”

“Start small, but aim high. You want to think big, but act small”

“Figure out, of the many things we can do in life, what the most important thing is that you can start with today”

“Start taking action today, no matter how small, that will make significant strides toward the most important thing we are working toward”
