"At the heart of this simple book lies the key to many of the struggles we face these days, from being productive and achieving our goals, to getting healthy and fit in the face of fast food and inactivity, to finding simplicity and peace amidst chaos and confusion. That key itself is simple: focus. Our ability to focus will allow us to create in ways that perhaps we haven't in years. It'll allow us to slow down and find peace of mind. It'll allow us to simplify and focus on the essential things, the things that matter most." -Leo Babauta

Professional reviews

"The author of the blog "ZenHabits" explains how living simply can make us more focused, productive, and happy. His advice for writers and other creative people is accessible and concise: Unclutter the work environment, balance work with quiet relaxation, and learn ways to minimize mindless consumption and distractions like Facebook, Twitter, and email. Fred Stella's warmth and deftly moderated enthusiasm make it easy for listeners to consider this timely message. The businesslike tone of his voice seems at odds with the book's new age vibe, but his voice has a can-do energy that works well when delivering the author's practical strategies. With sensitivity to how hard it is to change ingrained habits, Babauta tells listeners that simplifying their lives can release more of their creative potential. T.W.
