The One Habit is a book about the most essential ingredient required for success in this competitive and confusing world. It is more than time management and more than habits. Dr. Lybrand takes the reader on an adventure from defining success in a personal and useful way, to understanding the power of systems thinking, to eventually focus on the most powerful ability anyone who succeeds can cultivate as a daily habit: The ability to get done every day exactly what you mean to get done. Imagine what it could mean if you understand exactly why and how to transform what you accomplish on a day-to-day basis. The most interesting point of The One Success Habit is how the book is written to engage the reader in a non-stop experience of reading from beginning to end. In a way,
Dr. Lybrand doesn’t give the reader an ‘off ramp’ once the book begins. Get ready for a fun read that can also change your life.
This book is based on such a simple concept, it almost seems too good to be true. The author begins with helping the reader to identify what success means to them as an individual. The whole method requires that the reader be completely honest with themselves, and I am not sure everyone is ready to do this. It is like everything else, however. You make a commitment to yourself to make changes and you must stick with that commitment if you intend to be successful. The book was very simple to read and easy to understand. It did not contain a lot of complicated words or wording. The author introduces his concept in a step by step format, making it easy for the reader to follow. I have to be honest though, I am not sure this will work for everyone. There are those out there who by nature are procrastinators and I think they could find a way to manipulate the system as well as any other. If you are willing to make a commitment to change and become more successful, then I highly recommend this book to you. If you’re not willing to make any commitments to change, then reading this book would be of no use to you.
