The ONE Thing

Getting Extraordinary Results 
So when you think about success, shoot for the moon. The moon is reachable if you prioritize everything and put all of your energy into accomplishing the most important thing. Getting extraordinary results is all about creating a domino effect in your life. 
  Toppling dominoes is pretty straightforward. You line them up and tip over the first one. In the real world, though, it's a bit more complicated. The challenge is that life doesn't line everything up and say, "Here's where you should start." Highly successful people know this. So every day, they line up their priorities anew, find the lead domino, and whack away at it until it falls. 
  Why does this approach work? Because extraordinary success is sequential, not simultaneous. What starts out linear, becomes geometric. You do the right thing and then you do the next right thing. Over time it adds up, and the geometric potential of success is unleashed. The domino effect applies to the big picture, like your work or your business, and it applies to the smallest moment in each day when you're deciding what to do next. Success builds on success, and as this happens, over and over, you move toward the highest success possible. 
  When you see someone who has a lot of knowledge, they learned it over time. When you see someone who has a lot of skills, they developed them over time. When you see someone who has done a lot, they accomplished it over time. When you see someone who has a lot of money, they earned it over time. 
  The key is over time. Success is built sequentially. It's one thing at a time.
