This month in Servants Book Club, we reading are reading Gary Keller’s best-selling book, The ONE Thing. Keller has identified that behind every successful person is one thing that they could do that would make everything else easier or unnecessary.

Wondering if you should give it a go? Here are some key takeaways we’ve found from it:
- You must dedicate time to your ‘one thing’ (ideally four hours a day)
- Multitasking is ineffective – you must focus completely on your ‘one thing’ and prioritise it over other competing tasks

We’ll be discussing the book later this month. Join the conversation! Let us know what you thought of it via our blog, Facebook or Twitter at @smservants.
