I’m reading a really fantastic book called Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less. Greg McKeown has shifted my perspective and put a name to a philosophy I’ve dabbled with for years. I was dithering over a few issues, and I’ve already used the standards and methods offered in Essentialism to make key decisions. Much messiness results from quick yeses and slow nos. The philosophy of Essentialism has me taught to celebrate and embrace “No,” and the book provides plenty of logical and well-backed explanations for why your life improves when you have the courage to eliminate the people-pleasing bullshit. As I’ve started applying the principles consistently, I’ve found liberation and a drastic reduction in stress. As your time frees up, this book recommends you sleep more to further enhance productivity. In sum, this bestseller is full of advice you actually want to follow.
