what is the one thing?

January 2, 2018

Well – it’s a new year. What are you going to do with this precious gift?

One of my favorite books seems to intersect with a tradition we began in our family about five years ago. The book is The One Thing by Gary Keller. Gary asks what is called the focusing question –

“What’s the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”

Now, our tradition is that we did away with New Year’s resolutions and replaced them with a focusing word for the year. For me this past year it was Be Present (I know – that’s two words). An an INTJ, too often I was planning for the future or evaluating the past and my challenge was not being present with those important to my life.

So, what is your one word focus that aligns with your One Thing for this year?
