“Work is not all of life. Your co-workers shouldn’t be your only friends. Schedule life and defend it just as you would an important business meeting. Never tell yourself “I’ll just get it done this weekend.” Review Parkinson’s Law in 4HWW and force yourself to cram within tight hours so your per-hour productivity doesn’t fall through the floor. Focus, get the critical few done, and get out. E-mailing all weekend is no way to spend the little time you have on this planet.”
– Tim Ferriss
“Because most of what we say and do is not essential. Ask yourself at every moment, “Is this necessary?” – Marcus Aurelius
“There is nothing quite so useless, as doing with great efficiency, something that should not be done at all.” – Peter Drucker
Essentialism by Greg McKeown – A Visual Summary
Greg McKeown: Essentialism – The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
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.
Very Essential!!! The pursuit of less is the ultimate goal to a more fulfilled and effective life. I first heard about this wonderful man through a Tim Ferriss podcast which brought this idea of Essentialism to life for me. I have been following Minimalism for a couple of years now and think that both of them compliment each other in the best way possible. These philosophies just make you think and question everything in your life.
“The quality of your life is a direct reflection of the quality of the questions you are asking yourself.”
– Tony Robbins
Much love Greg
