Part 2: The Truth: The Simple Path to Productivity
“We succeed in spite of what most of what we do, not because of it.”
Most of the things we do aren’t the reason we achieve success—in fact, they’re either useless or having a negative impact. Identifying the select few things that help you achieve your goals will ensure you stop wasting time on unnecessary tasks and habits and that you spend your resources on things that make an impact.
When you focus on the One Thing that is most important in your life, you also provide yourself with a framework to create and maintain the habits that will ensure your success. Then, every action you take will enable you to put one foot forward on the path to success instead of detracting from your goals.
