Inhaltsangabe

Brought to you by Penguin. 

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 Valley who has run courses at Apple, Google and Facebook, shows you how to achieve what he calls the disciplined pursuit of less. Being an essentialist is about a disciplined way of thinking. It means challenging the core assumptions of "we can have it all" and "I have to do everything" and replacing them with the pursuit of "the right thing in the right way at the right time". 

By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter. 

Using the experience and insight of working with the leaders of the most innovative companies and organisations in the world, McKeown shows you how to put Essentialism into practice in your own life, so you, too, can achieve something great.

Absolute Empfehlung!

Eines der besten Bücher, die ich bisher hören durfte, mit einem sehr tiefgehenden, starken Inhalt. Dazu noch sehr angenehm vorgelesen.

A non-essential read

The author keeps on repeating one idea over and over again, so the book became really boring for me after the first 2-3 chapters. I struggled to finish it because of that. The examples were not relatable at all and I found most of them unnecessary (the full closet-metaphor was repeated at least 4 times). The "essentialism" has been presented as the only right way to achieve happines and fulfillment, and if it doesn't work for you, it's probably your fault. Don't waste your time on this book and go focus on what is important to you instead :)

brings it to the core...

... with a bunch of anecdotes. but that's fine!
was inspiring for me but i just passed that point when getting the audiobook.

really going essential is so important and, in the beginning, not so easy to start with. we are so used to trying to do it all, that's whats wrong with society ;) back to the basics and life will become easy and fullfilling.

this book is a good recommendation if you have no clue how and need the Inspiration and explanation.

Great teachings with great values!

I bought the book about the embark on a journey, and it is exactly what I needed to live by values of a more essential lifestyle.
I loved the comparisons.

a good reminder to focus on what's most important, and to learn to say no to what isn't.
