Multi-tasking is merely the opportunity to screw up more than one thing at a time.— Gary W. Keller
The most romantic Gary W. Keller quotes that will activate your inner potential
Success is actually a short race-a sprint fueled by discipline just long enough for habit to kick in and take over.
Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls - family, health, friends, integrity - are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.
Don't let small thinking cut your life down to size.
Think big, aim high, act bold. And see just how big you can blow up your life.
Taking complete ownership of your outcomes by holding no one but yourself responsible for them is the most powerful thing you can do to drive your success.
Until my ONE thing is done, everything else is a distraction.
Multitasking is a lie.
To ignite your life you must focus on ONE Thing long enough for it to catch fire.
A life worth living might be measured in many ways, but the one way that stands above all others is living a life of no regrets.

Extraordinary results happen only when you give the best you have to become the best you can be at your most important work.
Anyone who dreams of an uncommon life eventually discovers that there is no choice but to seek an uncommon approach to living it.
Your work life is divided into two distinct areas - what matters most and everything else. You will have to take what matters to the extremes and be okay with what happens to the rest. Professional success requires it.
Success is built sequentially. It's one thing at a time.
There is magic in knocking down your most important domino day after day.
All you have to do is avoid breaking the chain, one day at a time, until you generate a powerful new habit in your life.
Success is sequential, not simultaneous
Your next step is simple. You are the first domino.
You'd be hard pressed to find elite achievers who don't have coaches helping them in key areas of their life.
The path of mastering something is the combination of not only doing the best you can do at it, but also doing it the best it can be done.
Think as big as you possibly can and base what you do, how you do it, and who you do it with on succeeding at that level. It just might take you more than your lifetime to run into the walls of a box this big.
You can do two things at once, but you can't focus effectively on two things at once.
When we know something that needs to be done but isn't currently getting done, we often say, I just need more discipline. Actually, we need the habit of doing it. And we need just enough discipline to build the habit.
To be financially wealthy you must have a purpose for your life.
In other words, without purpose, you'll never know when you have enough money, and you can never be financially wealthy.
When you give your ONE Thing your most emphatic Yes! and vigorously say No! to the rest, extraordinary results become possible.
The people we live with and work with on a daily basis deserve our full attention. When we give people segmented attention, piecemeal time, switching back and forth, the switching cost is higher than just the time involved. We end up damaging relationships.
If disproportionate results come from one activity, then you must give that one activity disproportionate time.
If everyone has the same amount of time and yet some earn more than others, can we say then say that it's how we use our time that determines the money we make?
The trick to success is to choose the right habit and bring just enough discipline to establish it.
Task switching exacts a cost few realize they are even paying.
You need to be doing fewer things for more effect instead of doing more things with side effects.
Find the lead domino, and whack away at it until it falls.
Everyone has the same amount of time, and hard work is simply hard work.
As a result, what you do in the time you work determines what you achieve. And since what you do is determined by what you think, how big you think becomes the launching pad for how high you achieve.
Extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow you can make your focus.
All great achievements are the result of sustained focus over time-all of them.
Juggling is an illusion. ... In reality, the balls are being independently caught and thrown in rapid succession. ... It is actually task switching.
A different result requires doing something different.
In the end, the best way to succeed is to go small.
And when you go small, you say no - a lot. A lot more than you might have even considered before.
What’s the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?
Even an idle phone conversation when driving takes a 40 percent bite out of your focus and, surprisingly, can have the same effect as being drunk.
