[Synopsis]
Phil Cooke in this book, will help you do just that, find your One Big Thing. There are a few people who “preach” this message: “Don’t just be average at a lot of things, but be great at one thing.” Phil Cooke is one, Marcus Buckingham and John Maxwell are others. And I would have to agree with that message. I am a believer in the One Big Thing concept. In today’s cult-throat world, it is simply not enough to be just average at a lot of things, You have to be focused and great at something specific. I believe we all have that something specific inside of us, and this book will help you draw that out.
“Plenty of people want to change the world, but not enough want to change themselves.” Phil Cooke
Phil helps you examine not just your external circumstances but the state of your internals as well. Your heart, your passions, and how you were wired. One of the major positive marks for this book is that Phil encourages you to live a passionate life and one unashamed of your values. He lets you know that it’s ok to stand up for what you believe in and that really the only way to sleep soundly every night is to know that you are whole-heartedly being the person God created you to be.
I would recommend this book. It will be one that I will use as a resource throughout my journey.
