This book makes a simple, and seemingly blindingly obvious, recommendation: To succeed in a meaningful way, find the most important thing to do for your most important mission, then 'just' go do that.
The real value for me came in three ways:
- The research and thought-provoking work on what 'meaningful' actually is;
- A practical approach with strategies, questions and tips to move this from being a statement of the blindingly obvious, to something that is eminently doable;
- The telling of some uncomfortable truths which you need to get over if you're to do this, key among them being that doing your one thing well means you either need to drop, or accept chaos, in other things. Get over it!
