ABOUT THE BOOK:
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 Valleywho has run courses at Apple, Google and Facebook, shows you how to achieve what hecalls the disciplined pursuit of less. Being an Essentialist is about a disciplined way ofthinking. It means challenging the core assumption of 'We can have it all' and 'I have todo everything' and replacing it with the pursuit of 'the right thing, in the right way, at theright time'.
By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us toregain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort intomaking the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter.
Using the experience and insight of working with the leaders of the most innovativecompanies and organisations in the world, McKeown shows you how to put Essentialisminto practice in your own life, so you too can achieve something great.
