What is your one thing? The entrepreneur, thought leader, and best-selling author of Called to Create offers a refreshing invitation: stop trying to do it all so you can thrive in your unique, God-given work.
"A compelling case for embracing our vocational limits and choosing to do our one thing well." (Emily P. Freeman, Wall Street Journal best-selling author of The Next Right Thing)
Imagine how different your life would be if you spent your time doing the very thing that brings you the greatest joy. It’s possible, but most people spend their days making incremental advances on numerous tasks, competent at many things but exceptional at none. That’s because for too long we’ve believed the lie that more activity, more jobs, and more responsibility equals greater effectiveness. In short, we are becoming a society of "jacks-and-jills-of-all-trades and masters of none."
But what if you could shift your focus from too many things to one?
In this thought-provoking audiobook, you’ll discover the exponential power of pursuing a singular craft. Through practical principles, Jordan Raynor provides straightforward steps for finding and thriving in your calling. He also highlights more than a dozen real-life examples of high-impact individuals who have chosen to focus on and excel in their unique gifting, including:
- Chronicles of Narnia author C. S. Lewis
- Enron whistle-blower Sherron Watkins
- TV legend Mister Rogers
- Dallas Mavericks CEO Cynthia Marshall
- Reality TV star Chip Gaines
- NFL Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy
- Biblical figures, a teacher, a pilot, a banker, and world-class entrepreneurs
Too many of us are overwhelmed, overcommitted, and overstressed. This audiobook offers a better way - the path to becoming a master of one!
"We are rightly inspired and grateful for all Jesus Christ did in his essential mission in life. But it is also breathtaking to consider what he didn’t do. As the ultimate Essentialist, he modeled the disciplined pursuit of less. This is beautifully illustrated in Jordan Raynor’s Master of One." (Greg McKeown, New York Times best-selling author of Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less)
"I tell people all the time ‘You can’t do it all,’ but then I catch myself trying to complete just a few more things as my to-do list mushrooms every morning. I’m thankful that Jordan Raynor has set out such a clear alternative that teaches you how to choose what you want most in your career and how to ignore everything else." (Jon Acuff, New York Times best-selling author of Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done)
"In a culture where we’re told we can be anyone and do anything, Jordan Raynor makes a compelling case for embracing our vocational limits and choosing to do our one thing well." (Emily P. Freeman, Wall Street Journal best-selling author of The Next Right Thing)
