“After looking back at my successes and failures I discovered an interesting pattern,” Keller explained. “Where I’d had huge success, I had narrowed my concentration to ONE Thing, and where my success varied, my focus had to.”
Many example of the One Thing were presented including Angelo Amorico, Italy’s most successful tour guide – Oprah taps him when she needs a tour – says he developed his skills and ultimately his business from his singular passion for his country and the deep desire to share it with others. “I love my country, and I want to share its beauty with the world,” he told Keller.
Having set the stage for the concept of the book, Keller and Papasan presented the lies that block success and how to identify (and thwart) the thieves that steal our time. They modeled the laws of purpose, priority and productivity, and finally, they taught that the ONE Thing can radically change the way we work, the choices we make and the results we get. Throughout it all, Keller asked attendees to think big. “On your way to living a life worth living, doing your best to succeed at what matters most to you not only rewards you with success and happiness but with something even more precious. No regrets,” he said. “Go live a life worth living where, in the end, you’ll be able to say, ‘I’m glad I did,’ not ‘I wish I had.’”
