YOU WANT LESS. You want fewer distractions and less on your plate. The daily barrage of e-mails, texts, tweets, messages, and meetings distract you and stress you out. The simultaneous demands of work and family are taking a toll. And what’s the cost? Second-rate work, missed deadlines, smaller paychecks, fewer promotions—and lots of stress.

AND YOU WANT MORE. You want more productivity from your work. More income for a better lifestyle. You want more satisfaction from life, and more time for yourself, your family, and your friends.


 As an executive coach, I read a lot about leadership and this book stands above the rest! "The ONE Thing" is a great read, and, more importantly, it is a powerful tool for personal growth and focus. It is now in the hands of many of my clients! 
Janet Marie Hulet
 This is the most helpful book I've read in a long time. Really changed my thought process and desperately needed in these times of constant distractions and wasteful activities. It's a quick read, but gives tremendous amount of useful tips. 
 I've read 60+ books this year. The ONE THING is the book I continue to re-read and recommend to all my peers. 
Ben Austin
 I never thought I would stumble upon such a book this ground breaking. The unique perspectives and tools given in this book has helped me focus and defined my purpose. Now I share this book with those around me. 
Dieuveille, Ezra
 This book was given to me as a gift from a friend. This book is one of the best books I've ever read on the subjects of achieving goals and time management. 
Joseph L. Harris
 If you ever think you'll attempt a challenging goal that's bigger than yourself or if you already know you want to live a life of significance, you'll be glad you read this book. As you'll learn, you don't need more motivation, discipline, or willpower — you need to just create the habit of the ONE Thing. 
 These were Christmas gifts for my children and a couple of girlfriends. They have already thanked me for a book that spoke right to a situation they were facing. 
 The One Thing has been transformational for me, personally, and for those in my mastermind group. I cannot recommend it highly enough. 
Dr. Bill Dyment
 I've read a lot about productivity, achieving goals, and time management. Nothing has synthesized all those years of reading, research, and practice better than Mr. Keller's book. I'm giving this to my kids, grandkids, colleagues, best friends. 
N. Akter
 This book is phenomenal. It's a really (!) well written, incredibly simple, concise, practical analysis of the whys and hows of discovering and executing our ONE Thing. It's packed with Big Ideas. 
Brian Johnson
 If you are a person who is fairly organized, and yet you struggle with too many things to do, this book may be one that can change your life. 
James R. Currin
 If you are truly serious about improving your results, this is a great how-to guide.
