Have you ever found yourself stretched too thin? Do you feel like your time is constantly being stolen by other people’s agendas?

If your answer is yes then the way out is essentialism. Essentialism is not about how to get more things done; it’s about how to get things done.

This marvelous book is written by Greg McKeown who is an author, public speaker, leadership and business strategist, and New York Bestselling Author.

Essentialism is not based on the “Latest and-greatest” psychology and science. It is based on older “time-tested” ideas. Most concepts of the book have been discussed by many intellectual scientists, psychologists, philosophers, and time management experts for the last few years.

The best comparison for the concept of “Essentialism” is minimalism. In a minimalist lifestyle, you cut down your “stuff” to the things that matter to create a better life.

Four major principles of essentialism, Do less; do it better, Do not do it all, Question yourself regularly and update your plans and make sure the changes are acted upon.

Essentialism is not just one more thing, it’s a whole new way of doing everything. A must-read for any manager, leader, or individual who wants to learn what to do less but better in every area of their lives.
