A Book to Keep You From Getting Spread Too Thin

So many people I respect and trust — including Jon Keel (see above) — have recommended Greg McKeown’s book Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less. Now I see why.

The book’s promise: Do less, but better, so you can make the highest possible contribution. 

Instead of doing everything, do the right things. This book will show you how to focus on the essentials. 

Words to Ponder
From Essentialism…

“What if we stopped celebrating being busy as a measurement of importance? What if instead we celebrated how much time we had spent listening, pondering, meditating, and enjoying time with the most important people in our lives?”

– Greg McKeown
From his book Essentialism
