A Book I’m Re-reading – The One Thing
Our leadership team is working with Dr. Rick Forbus of Trove. Rick has coached several of us individually as well as our entire leadership team. He has helped our team and our church immensely! Rick recently challenged our team to read The One Thing as we fine-tune our 2021 strategic plans.
I read this book a few years ago but am looking forward to re-reading it with fresh eyes. It is a simple idea with powerful results. Have you read it?
People are using this simple, powerful concept to focus on what matters most in their personal and work lives. Companies are helping their employees be more productive with study groups, training, and coaching. Sales teams are boosting sales. Churches are conducting classes and recommending for their members.
By focusing their energy on one thing at a time people are living more rewarding lives by building their careers, strengthening their finances, losing weight and getting in shape, deepening their faith, and nurturing stronger marriages and personal relationships.
YOU WANT LESS. You want fewer distractions and less on your plate. The daily barrage of e-mails, texts, tweets, messages, and meetings distract you and stress you out. The simultaneous demands of work and family are taking a toll. And what’s the cost? Second-rate work, missed deadlines, smaller paychecks, fewer promotions–and lots of stress.
AND YOU WANT MORE. You want more productivity from your work. More income for a better lifestyle. You want more satisfaction from life, and more time for yourself, your family, and your friends.
NOW YOU CAN HAVE BOTH ― LESS AND MORE. In The ONE Thing, you’ll learn to * cut through the clutter * achieve better results in less time * build momentum toward your goal* dial down the stress * overcome that overwhelmed feeling * revive your energy * stay on track * master what matters to you The ONE Thing delivers extraordinary results in every area of your life–work, personal, family, and spiritual. WHAT’S YOUR ONE THING?
A Miracle Medicine for Migraine Suffers – Ajovy
I’ve suffered from chronic migraines for 25+ years. I have tried everything I know to do to cut them out. They can be debilitating. At the very least, they are frustrating and have robbed me days and weeks (and years?) of being able to show-up as my best self.
My doctor introduced me to Ajovy last year. Ajovy is a self-administered injection that you can give yourself monthly or quarterly and has been shown to reduce migraine days for its users.
It took a couple of months to build up in my system, but once it did, it has been a game-changer. I rarely have migraines now. The ones I do have are less frequent and less painful.
If you suffer from migraines, it is worth asking your doctor about Ajovy. Since it is a newer treatment, it can be quite expensive. Fortunately, the manufacturer offers a coupon that has made it nearly free for me to take it.
There are at least two other drug companies that have similar products. To my knowledge, Ajovy is the only one that allows you to use it quarterly.
A Great Knee Wrap – Knee Ice Pack
I have a small tear in my patellar tendon — I’m getting old! This knee wrap comes with two ice packs that are easy to insert in the wrap. It makes it easy to ice my knee and help reduce the inflammation.
A Quote from I’m Thinking About
“The people who achieve extraordinary results don’t achieve them by working more hours … They achieve them by getting more done in the hours they work.” – Gary Keller in The One Thing
