Greg McKeown’s new book called “Essentialism” has become a must read for me. Not only is it important advice for any work place, but it is also something to think about and apply to life. We spend so much time and energy reacting to what comes our way in life rather than being thoughtful and choosing what to spend time on. McKeown argues that it is the successful, driven people that especially struggle under the need to take on more and more and become buried under things that are not important or essential. I highly recommend this book. This 5 minute talk gives a general overview of the topics he covers in the book.
