INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER Have you ever felt the urge to declutter your work life? Do you often find yourself stretched too thin? Do you simultaneously feel overworked and underutilized? Are you frequently 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. A must-read for any leader, manager, or individual who wants to do less, but better, and declutter and organize their own their lives, Essentialism is a movement whose time has come.

Professional reviews

"In this genuine-sounding personal effectiveness audio, Greg McKeownÕs narration is compassionate, almost meditative, and a good fit for the slowly building thoughtfulness of his excellent book. Born in London and blessed with a pleasing voice, he has a calm confidence that makes it easy to slow down and absorb the large and small ideas he offers. McKeown says that once we reclaim the choices we have about our lives, we can become better at doing whatÕs essential by eliminating irrelevant noise, accepting the reality of trade-offs, being explicit and rigorous about our priorities, and adopting behavioral routines. None of these ideas are new, but McKeownÕs quiet delivery allows for their absorption and makes this an audio lesson that lingers in the heart and spurs lasting change.
