Inhaltsangabe

Have you ever found yourself stretched too thin? Do you simultaneously feel overworked and underutilized? Are you often busy but not productive? Do you feel like your time is constantly being hijacked by other people's agendas? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is the Way of the Essentialist. The Way of the Essentialist isn't about getting more done in less time. It's about getting only the right things done. It is not a time management strategy, or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter.

By forcing us to apply a more selective criteria for what is Essential, the disciplined pursuit of less empowers us to reclaim control of our own choices about where to spend our precious time and energy - instead of giving others the implicit permission to choose for us. Essentialism is not one more thing - it's a whole new way of doing everything. It's about doing less, but better, in every area of our lives. Essentialism is a movement whose time has come.

Kritikerstimmen

 "Do you feel it, too? That relentless pressure to sample all the good things in life? To do all the 'right' things? The reality is, you don’t make progress that way. Instead, you’re in danger of spreading your efforts so thin that you make no impact at all. Greg McKeown believes the answer lies in paring life down to its essentials. He can’t tell you what’s essential to every life, but he can help you find the meaning in yours.”
-- Daniel H. Pink, author of TO SELL IS HUMAN and DRIVE
 
“Entrepreneurs succeed when they say "yes" to the right project, at the right time, in the right way. To accomplish this, they have to be good at saying "no" to all their other ideas. Essentialism offers concise and eloquent advice on how to determine what you care about most, and how to apply your energies in ways that ultimately bring you the greatest rewards.”
-- Reid Hoffman, co-founder/chairman of LinkedIn and co-author of the #1 NYT bestseller “The Start-up of You”
 
Essentialism holds the keys to solving one of the great puzzles of life: how can we do less but accomplish more? A timely, essential read for anyone who feels overcommitted, overloaded, or overworked—in other words, everyone. It has already changed the way that I think about my own priorities, and if more leaders embraced this philosophy, our jobs and our lives would be less stressful and more productive. So drop what you’re doing and read it..”
~Adam Grant, Wharton professor and bestselling author of Give and Take
 

“As a self-proclaimed "maximalist" who always wants to do it all, this book challenged me and improved my life. If you want to work better, not just less, you should read it too.” 
- Chris Guillebeau, NYT bestselling author of The $100 Startup

"Great design takes us beyond the complex, the unnecessary and confusing, to the simple, clear and meaningful. This is as true for the design of a life as it is for the design of a product. With Essentialism, Greg McKeown gives us the invaluable guidebook for just such a project." 
-Tim Brown, CEO of IDEO
 
  "In Essentialism, Greg McKeown makes a compelling case for achieving more by doing less. He reminds us that clarity of focus and the ability to say ‘no’ are both critical and undervalued in business today."
-Jeff Weiner, ‎CEO, LinkedIn


“Essentialism is a powerful antidote to the current craziness that plagues our organizations and our lives.  Read Greg McKeown’s words slowly, stop and think about how to apply them to your life – you will do less, do it better, and begin to feel the insanity start to slip away.” 
- Robert I. Sutton, Professor at Stanford University and author of Good Boss, Bad Boss and Scaling Up Excellence.

In a world of increasing chaos and complexity, the ideas and tools of Essentialism turn chaos into commitment and complexity into accomplishment.  This timely, well written book is a must read and do for any employee, manager, leader, or parent whoever  feels overwhelmed. It is truly the right book at the right time.
- Dave Ulrich, Professor, University of Michigan School of Business and Partner, the RBL Group

"Essentialism is a rare gem that will change lives.  Greg offers deep insights, rich context and actionable steps to living life at its fullest.  I've started on the path to an Essentialist way of life, and the impact on my productivity and well-being is profound."
  -Bill Rielly, Senior Vice President, Intel Security

"While everyone else is still leafing through Lean In or Outliers, get a competitive jump on the new year with....Essentialism... learn how to identify the right things, focus on getting them done, and forget the rest. In other words, 'do less, but better.'” -Forbes

    Geschichte
    "Want to become an essentialist?"

    I saw the author present his book on the "Talks at Google" series and after listening to him for an hour or so I was initially under the impression that:

    a) the content was not really new and
    b) that the talk probably covered any new concepts that may be of relevance to me.

    As a result I initially decided against reading the book, but am glad I gave it a try despite my reservations. Books like these have a tendency to be redundant. Often they are packed with filler to make the page count. This book is quite the opposite. It is concise, straight to the point with stories inserted where they are relevant. It was obviously written for essentialists by an essentialist. The concept fits right in with the times we are living in, where we have to make more decisions and are exposed to more stimuli than ever before.

    If the concept of essentialism resonates with you, this book will help you get and stay on the path. At the end of the day it is about having the right state of mind, this book help you achieve this state of mind. Great narration, quick read, worth a re-read.

    "Ein Leuchtturm in einer Zeit voller Ablenkung"

    In dem Versuch Familie, Beruf, Freunde und soziales Engagement unter einen Hut zu bringen scheitere ich. Das Buch hat mir klar gemacht wieso. Es zeigt den Weg auf zu einem Leben, das für einen selbst bedeutend ist. Danke Greg McKeown

    "very important book"

    Many things to do, many possibilities... if we are not carefull we end very busy but not coming ahead with the things that are important to us.

    This book tells you the importance of having a clear plan and to learn to say no to actions that do not pass in you plan.

    Very important book for those who want to come ahead.

    "Not essential"

    Paradoxically, the author peddles a good idea (focus on the few truly important things and ignore the rest) in a 7 hours audiobook, when a 20 min essay would have sufficed

    "Good to keep in mind"

    The idea (although not new) is great but too much repetition. Still worth listening to. good reader

    "Da habe ich noch lange drüber nachgedacht"

    Für mich eines der besten Bücher seit langem. Wie konzentriere ich mich auf das Wesentliche? Wie finde ich das Wesentliche in allen Lebensbereichen? Und wie schaffe ich es alle anderen Themen abzugeben? Großartiges, weises Buch. Manches wiederholt sich, was ich aber nicht schlimm finde. So festigt es sich über die Stunden des Hörens.
