Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

4.5 rating

In 100 Words or Less: Rather than spread ourselves thin -- making "a millimeter of progress in a million directions" -- we will be happiest when we "make [our] highest contribution towards the things that really matter". Our lives are cluttered with too many well-intentioned commitments, but we truly can't have or do it all. This means learning to say no and owning our choices; affirming that we "choose" to, rather than "have" to. ("If you don't prioritize your life, someone else will.") Essentialism calls us to "live by design, not by default; ... distinguishing the vital few from the trivial many". Working smarter trumps working harder.
