So, this is the most amazing book I’ve ever read on getting focussed… and not just that, getting focussed on THE RIGHT things!

If you’ve been following me, you’ll know how much I love FOCUS and the benefits it’s given me over the years.

Well, even though I’ve been a student and implementer of focus for a long time, this book has given me a TON of aha moments, and I’ve JUST started reading it a couple of days ago!

Go get yourself a copy now and lets read the book together – I’ll have a few more updates about it as I keep reading through the book and discover some more nice nuggets of wisdom!

    I met Jay Papsan and heard him speak about this topic right when he
    released the book. Very energetic guy.

  3. Sybrand van Schalkwyk

    Thanks Gideon. Always nice to hear your cutting edge thinking presented so
    clearly and concisely. I look forward to walking this journey with you

    Good to be reminded of this and now to find the book for a full read.
    Good video Gideon

  5. DoctorBeau

    Great vid and sharing about the power of being laser focused. So many times
    in life we are always trying to capture the big picture, but having laser
    focused actionable steps is what makes that big picture possible.

  6. Joey Kissimmee

    Just got my copy brotha. Thanks for the recommendation. I love a good read ;-)

  7. Rickey Resch

    I just finished reading that book too. I learned about it from the Madison,
    Wisconsin REIA (Real Estate Investor Association) and got a free copy from
    Keller Williams Realty which I’m trying to become a realtor. The author of
    the book owns the realty company who’s name is Gary Keller, coauthored by
    Jay Papasan. It’s a great book and I recommend it to anyone who wants to be
    more productive and become better at time management. “Education is the
    bedrock that all else rests on. The taller the building, the deeper the
    foundation.” ~Rick Resch

    The book is well worth reading … See the short video comment from Gideon

    Loving the book too G. Read it last year and reading it again now as you
    know. I especially enjoyed the common assumptions the book took part – –
    Multi-tasking doesn’t work (one task is always better)
    - Discipline is the key to success (wrong)
    - You have a finite amount of Willpower (so use it on the one thing)
    - Having a balanced life (counter-balancing continuously is key)

    Interesting stuff!


  10. Sergio Felix

    Thanks for the recommendation Gideon, I haven’t read this but I’m getting
    this on my Kindle ASAP.

  11. Christopher Fox

    You are so right! This is a great book. I have a copy and have read it
    cover to cover. But, I encourage you to read a book called “My Next Step”
    by Dave Liniger.

    It is an extraordinary journey of healing and hope. In the fight against a
    life-threatening illness, Liniger relied on the goal-setting principles he
    learned as a successful businessman and on life lessons. You can get a copy
    of Dave’s book at http://www.mynextstepbook.com.

    After reading this book, you will understand why “nobody sells more real
    estate than RE/MAX”.

    Thanks Gideon, having just seen your great talk at Matt and Liz’s program,
    I thought Id check out more of your videos.. Ill get this book on my kindle
    right now. thanks for the recommendation, always looking for a good, on
    purpose book.

  13. Wish I Had Thought Of That

    Thanks, Gideon. I’ve just read your Rapid Video Blogging report and have
    been setting myself up with video equipment at home in Sydney for the last
    month. As a freelance IT specialist & technical writer with lots of
    experience working with different companies & industries, and I’m going to
    focus on helping businesses – especially startups (like me) – with better
    communication, and even asking the basic question “how’s business?”

    I can produce videos superfast with my iPhone & smartLav now. It’s been a
    long haul setting up equipment and with little return, but I hope to turn
    that around very soon, thanks largely to your example, videos and advice.
    Got a great web site name (ask me via anthonyengl at gmail.com).

  14. Juho Tunkelo

    I love this book, the most practically impactful book I read in all of
    last year.

  15. Jørn Falk

    I have to reat that book – thanks for the idea

  16. Eva Bogard

    This point to super focus on one narrow thing at a time made a lot of sense
    to me, because I can see that the quality and effectiveness of the object
    under scrutiny will be so much better and more valuable. Seems like using
    this method will take me a much longer time to reach the point where I can
    share/sell my products. What do you say about that?

  17. AimenTv5 ©

    Very entertaining video.

  18. expertsuccessacademy

    Two new books have just come out on this topic too Gideon:

    Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence by Daniel Goleman

    Focus: Use Different Ways of Seeing the World for Success and Influence by
    Heidi Grant Halvorson E Tory Higgins

    Focus can be something of a paradox in that our “One Thing” can be a good
    thing … as long as it does not “blind” us!

  19. Manualideas Fancylooks

    Today I have a “gaussian blur” inside my mind and this has made me clear it
    up, thanks!

  20. Kurt Novak

    I was surprised that you are actually reading a real estate book. The tips
    are certainly good for any industry.

  21. Lisa Byrne

    Gideon, i always enjoy your insight. This one strikes me strong as “focus”
    is my word for 2014. thanks for the share.

  22. Pedro F

    As stated in the book, focusing at one tiny little think at a time is key,
    and in the internet marketing it is critical.

  23. Rohe Energie - Vegane Ernährung & Mehr

    Great tip! Thanks :-)

  24. Avelardo Lopez

    This was a great tip/video. And how you put this together was amazing.
    Great job.

  25. Tesia Blackburn

    Gideon, love it. I’ll add it to my reading list. And here’s one for you.
    Steven Pressfield “The War of Art”. I think you’ll like it!

  26. Adam Tinkoff

    I really liked the format of this video – far more intimate than some of
    your others. Great direction. I am now inspired to read this book. Mission
    accomplished. Thanks for making and sharing! Go Gideon Go!

  27. David Claussen

    Thanks for your great pointers! It’s always appreciated!!

  28. SuperShahane


  29. Edmund Pelgen

    This was an excellent recommendation. I’m off to buy it now. Thanks
    Gideon. PS Also loved the video as well. Awesome.

  30. tisme

    Thanks Gideon, saw the video in the UK @ 5am, & was reading it via Kindle
    by 10 past! ;-)

  31. Angus McDonald

    Great to see how you are focused on making a buck. Well done I have learnt
    something. Second gem: Extraordinary Results Are Directly Determined By How
    Narrow You Can Make Your Focus – quite true. But it needs action to make it
    come true.

  32. Tim Maynard

    Thanks for the tip. I’ve been a subscriber since learning how to do the
    white screen effect and always look forward to seeing the next video and
    what ideas you have. I’ll have a look at the book but thought you might be
    interested in a similar read: ‘Profit from the Positive’ by Margaret
    Greenberg and Senia Maymin.

  33. Ralph Clesca

    Definitely one of the best books ive read

  34. CJ Grace

    Thanks for another valuable video Gideon! Sounds like a book I need, but I
    better get myself in better health first, that’s my first focus!

  35. melher1234

    if you don’t mind me asking. what is it that you do in specific?what is
    that one thing? i look to the right and see a ton of video of you on
    different subjects? :)

  36. tisme

    Great book, just finished it & laying down my lists tomorrow! Love
    synchronicity Gideon don’t you?-)

  37. Bunni Longwell

    I have read the book twice. It is not only about business but about life.

  38. TechSupport100

    Narrow focus –> extraordinary results. This is how a pickaxe breaks rock,
    the reason that knives have sharp edges, and the way that a magnifying
    glass starts a fire. Force or energy is being applied through a very small
    area of impact, or focus.

  39. DigiDesk

    Garry Keller’s book “The One Thing” will be my next choice to read.

    Here +Gideon Shalwick introduces the book, which is all about getting
    focused on THE RIGHT things!
