Description

Have you ever found yourself struggling with information overload?

Have you ever felt both overworked and underutilised?

Do you ever feel busy but not productive?

If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is to become an essentialist.

In Essentialism, Greg McKeown, CEO of a leadership and strategy agency in Silicon Valley who has run courses at Apple, Google and Facebook, shows you how to achieve what he calls the disciplined pursuit of less. Being an essentialist is about a disciplined way of thinking. It means challenging the core assumptions of "we can have it all" and "I have to do everything" and replacing them with the pursuit of "the right thing in the right way at the right time".

By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter.

Using the experience and insight of working with the leaders of the most innovative companies and organisations in the world, McKeown shows you how to put Essentialism into practice in your own life, so you, too, can achieve something great.

Simple is not Cheap. A must read:

Through this book, I came to see how I pursue the least meaningful things in life. I am in the process of purging and redefining what is really essential in my existence. It is a reference book I go to each time I realize I need downsizing in every way possible. Most times meaningfulness and significance are archived when we drop out all the unnecessary clutter we surround ourselves with- be it physically or mentally.

Enlightening yet practical

This book is life-changing.
I have enjoyed all of it. I think everything written on this book is useful. In a world where there is too much going on all around and too much noise in the outside and inside, this book helps one to persue wholly the most important things and only what matters most to get the best out life and lead a meaningful life for oneself and for the whole world.
I'm definitely re-reading it again.

Less is More

Essentialism is a great concept and well explained and described in this book. Lots of examples and ways to include it in your life.
It is a different mindset and will take a while to implement and incorporate. I read this book with Deep Work, they compliment each other.
Highly recommend.

absolutely loved it

what a great way to say the new year!

instead of looking to add new things in, it's all about minimising your priorities to the most essential

say no to more things to create space for the important things in your life

just awesome:

Self-help but smart

Self help books rightly have a poor reputation for lots of salesmanship and little substance. But this is a smart, nuanced and pragmatic book. There are lots of useful insights and practical hints that can be applied widely. The basic thesis itself (less but better) is fairly anodyne, but the focus on trying to apply this in a disciplined way is what makes the book stand out. I also enjoyed hearing the author read the book, to give it the personal touch.
