Greg Mckeown´s Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less Summary:
INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER Have you ever felt the urge to declutter your work life? Do you often find yourself stretched too thin? Do you simultaneously feel overworked and underutilized? Are you frequently busy but not productive? Do you feel like your time is constantly being hijacked by other people´s agendas? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is the Way of the Essentialist. The Way of the Essentialist isn´t about getting more done in less time. It´s about getting only the right things done. It is not a time management strategy, or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter. By forcing us to apply a more selective criteria for what is Essential, the disciplined pursuit of less empowers us to reclaim control of our own choices about where to spend our precious time and energy - instead of giving others the implicit permission to choose for us. Essentialism is not one more thing - it´s a whole new way of doing everything. A must-read for any leader, manager, or individual who wants to do less, but better, and declutter and organize their own their lives, Essentialism is a movement whose time has come.
Have you ever found yourself struggling with information overload? It means challenging the core assumption of `We can have it all´ and `I have to do everything´ and replacing it with the pursuit of `the right thing, in the right way, at the right time´.
Don´t miss Greg McKeown´s life-changing book, Essentialism. If you have ever felt too busy to get everything done in a day, this book is a must-listen to get your life back under control. Essentialism isn´t just another self-help book, it will change the way you live your life. What will you learn from listening to this book? How to harness the power of choice to take charge of your time, priorities, and life. How to separate the few things that matter in your work and life from the noise that constantly surrounds you. How to eliminate the constraints that keep you from making your highest contribution. How to simplify your life by pursuing less but better. How to build up on small wins to make monumental progress. How to free yourself by reducing your options and setting clear boundaries. How to overcome the fear of loss and let go of the things that hold you back. How to find your essential intent and unify the flow of your life or organization. Book Summary Editorial Review Greg McKeown cuts through the jargon of productivity literature to remind his listners the one thing they are losing sight of in the face of increasing opportunities: no one can have it all. He builds on the personal philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi, Steve Jobs, and other iconic personalities to offer insightful, research-backed, and practical tips for taking back control of your life by embracing the power of less. Any team leader, parent, or individual feeling strained by the weight of a schedule spiraling out of control will find this book invaluable.

Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less offers a manual that helps listeners intentionally and ultimately focus on a very few priorities in their lives that are really meaningful and remove those that are nonessential. We all continue saying yes to more opportunities and projects that come our way, even though we are not sure any of them are important or essential to our lives, and we are already overcommitted to deadlines and projects that may in fact be nonessentials. The essentialists must ask themselves whether these projects are important or essential before making any type of commitment or taking on responsibility if they want to live lives that are meaningful. The intent of this book is to show you why you should do this and how to do it.
