A few years ago, I read this book called The One Thing. I have this CEO Bookshelf feature on Teach a CEO so I'm always looking for awesome books to add or books that I have received. This is one of those books. I always wanted to improve my ability to focus but it was this book that helped me do it the most. The thesis of the book is “What's the one thing that by doing it everything else is easier or unnecessary?” It's something I constantly remind myself of.
It helped me drill down on the services that I provide to come to website design. I speak about this book so much (it came up twice, unprompted, in the last 12 hours) that I decided to share it because to me it's one of the most influential business books that I have read.
Even if you don't read it, check out these book summaries below.
