I just finished reading One Big Thing by Phil Cooke and the following are my thoughts on the book:
We live in a noisy world where we are constantly being asked “What is our destiny?” In One Big Thing, Phil Cooke explains that we are not locked in by destiny, rather destiny is a moving target that we need to go after. We need to also live intentionally and strategically. As we are being pulled in many different directions or pursue multiple passions, Phil says that we need to find that One Big Thing and go after that with all our passion, instead of going after multiple smaller passions half-heartedly. The book is peppered with quotations and also Phil’s personal experiences.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a great reminder that we need to find that one thing that we can be great at and pursue it. Phil gave a lot of great advice from his personal experiences. For me it let me know that my destiny isn’t preplanned, and I haven’t missed the boat. I can still make a difference in this world by going after that one thing I am either good at or have a passion for. I would encourage everyone to read this book if you need encouragement about pursuing your dreams.
