Clearing The Decks

Gary Keller’s Book ‘The One Thing’ wants me to ask the same question every morning when I get up.

What is the one thing I can do today such as by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary.

It’s forced me to look at all my work and see how wasteful I’ve been.

I’m looking through my manuscripts, book ideas, inbox, messages, requests, client lists, projects, processes, tasks and I’m asking these two questions.

  • Will doing this write or sell my books?
  • Will doing this increase my profits?

Where the answer is no I’m deleting. No ifs, no buts, no coconuts. No hedging, or archiving. Gone.
