While people often clutter their lives with too many commitments both in and outside the workplace, Greg McKeown offers a new approach to living – that of the essentialist.
In his New York Times bestseller “Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less,” McKeown coaches readers on what he terms “a systematic discipline” for determining priorities that are absolutely essential and eliminating all others.
As he writes, “Essentialism is not about how to get more things done; it’s about how to get the right things done. It doesn’t mean just doing less for the sake of less either. It is about making the wisest possible investment of your time and energy in order to operate at our highest point of contribution by doing only what is essential.”
By narrowing the scope of priorities to only those that are truly critical, McKeown says that professionals can optimize their performance in the areas that carry the most weight.
“Essentialism” is available on www.800ceoread.com for $18.40.
