Chapter 2 of “The ONE Thing” By Gary Keller with Jay Papasan

Chapter 2: “The Domino Effect”

“In 1983, Lorne Whitehead wrote in the American Journal of Physics…

…how a single domino is capable of bringing down another domino that is actually 50 percent larger.”

Gary Keller with Jay Papasan | The One Thing, Page 13

“The Domino Effect” goes on to describe that if you start with a single domino fall, you would be able to topple a domino the size of the Leaning Tower of Pisa by the 23rd fall, and a domino that almost reaches to the moon by the 57th fall. This approach should be applied when thinking about our major goals. Don’t be scared by huge “dominos” you will have to overcome. With each ONE major thing you accomplish, you gain more power and strength to overtake an even bigger hurdle. Just OK results don’t have enough power to “topple bigger dominos”, which is why one great result is better than several OK results.
