“It’s not only one thing.  It’s one thing at a time.”

–  Gary Keller (b. 1957), at The1Thing.com

A quick check of my “To-Do List” at 5:45 AM today showed 13 things that “must” get done today.

Bad odds.

At 6:15, I re-ordered it.

One thing.  And then, one thing at a time!  These eleven things now come into perspective.

(“11?” you might be thinking, “Heston, math ain’t that hard…you just said thirteen things!”)

Wait for it…

If I’m completely honest, I like my odds on getting about 8 done today.  Only, though, if I do them one thing at a time.  Three of the other five?  Turns out the world won’t end if they move to Friday, the weekend, or even early next week.

Here’s another thing.  Maybe the coolest thing?

Two items on the list?  Simply.  Don’t.  Matter.

13 – 2 = 11

So, I start with a 15% reduction is crap that was on my mind.  It’s gonna be a pretty good day!

When we get to one thing at a time — some of the other things won’t deserve any time at all.
