Publisher's Summary

Disclaimer: This is not the original book.

An ideal book for anyone who thinks that they are too “busy” but aren’t doing anything productive, Essentialism is a book about priorities. It’s not about somehow managing to do all of the activities in your life disregarding if they are important or not, it’s about having a detailed plan of what’s important for you and what’s not and starting from there. That is why it is called the pursuit of less, because during that quest for “less” you’ll find out that you’re actually doing more.

(Note: This summary is wholly written and published by readtrepreneur.com. It is not affiliated with Greg McKeown in any way.)

“There should be no shame in admitting to a mistake; after all, we really are only admitting that we are now wiser than we once were.” (Greg McKeown)

Essentialism forces us to be more selective in regards to what is essential and what isn’t. Pursuing less give us the liberty of choosing what we want to do and regaining control of our schedule. There is no need to be overwhelmed just because you feel like you can’t get anything done. With this book, you’ll discover what activities you should get rid of to achieve much more!

Greg McKeown stresses that you can have complete control over your schedule if you just start weighing out priorities. It’s time for you to become productive.

very very informative

Whenever I am feeling down or want to settle into thinking that I am doing enough I come back to this audio book and it whips me into shape. I hate that this books makes me feel so uncomfortable that I feel compelled to move and so dissatisfied with where I currently am that I feel like I have to move. It has helped me move forward in my thinking and makes me believe and go forward.

Not a bad choice

Life changing at a time I wanted to be reminded of it. It's a great motivational book, yet despite I don't agree with some of his ideas but much better than others..
