The book that changed my perspective towards life management….

During this lockdown, I was fortunate to deep dive into the book called “One thing” By Keller and Papasan. This book talks about our current frames of mind on how much we are distracted in general and the impact of mobile phones and technology in our lives.

I was amazed at the insights of the book and I found a direct correlation between the book Mastery and one thing. I am thankful that I am reading all these good books and applying these insights in my daily routine.

This book talks about the relationship between productivity and purpose. I have rediscovered the purpose and the importance of being productive rather than busy. I am happy that I am able to focus my every one hour in creating value to either self, family or my organization.

This book also talks about the importance of 80/20 rule. All our 80 percent of our outcomes are decided by 20℅ of our focussed actions. We need to remove so much of flab and fluff in our daily routines as they keep us busy but not adding value.

We need to unitask instead of multi task. Uni tasking is doing one thing at one time. By this way, we achieve more and move towards a more successful and contended life.

This book is available on Amazon and other online stores. Do take a look and do give your comments in the comment box. Looking forward to read your comments..

Till then, stay safe and stay calm…

    1. Multi tasking is a criminal waste of human resources. We as humanity are proclaiming that multi tasking is a skill to be on our resumes. As Steve Uzzell rightly says ” Multitasking is merely the opportunity to screw up more
      than one thing at a time.”

    2. Sure! Maybe I had a fixed mindset though but I have always been someone who loves to do my stuffs – one thing at a time. Life isn’t a competition,so it’s better to do things at our own pace.


  1. I’m interested in reading this book! Thanks for your post! I am a nurse and multitasking is a major key factor in being a successful nurse. Although I bring that trait to my home and daily life! I think it would be a great read and hopefully bring forth motivation to change my daily routines while home!
