The Way of the Essentialist involves doing less, but better, so you can make the highest possible contribution.
The Way of the Essentialist isn’t about getting more done in less time. It’s not about getting less done. It’s about getting only the right things done. It’s about 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’. It’s about regaining control of our own choices about where to spend our time and energies instead of giving others implicit permission to choose for us.
In Essentialism, Greg McKeown draws on experience and insight from working with the leaders of the most innovative companies in the world to show how to achieve the disciplined pursuit of less.
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.
This week at Good / True / & Beautiful Podcast Greg McKeown joins us as we talk about Essentialism and the numerous key takeaways this work offers.

…isn’t a sign of weakness.
It’s a sign that you long to behold the light of those that came before you so that you can see and enjoy your days with greater meaning and depth.
Speaking of guidance, I could use a little, and perhaps your Rolodex has someone who is willing to share some of their insight, light, and wisdom.
Here’s who I’m looking for.
