Essentialism

[the Disciplined Pursuit of Less]

Rate this:
Outlines a systematic framework for enabling greater productivity without overworking, sharing strategies on how to eliminate unnecessary tasks while streamlining essential employee functions.
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 as to make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter. Essentialism is a whole new way of doing everything. It's about doing less, but better, in every area of life.

A useful work, although I found that it would be hard to implement because it would require taking notes (especially the list of the ways to say 'no' in chapter eight), which is awkward when one can only listen to it. So, it would be better to read and take notes from it, then start to apply them.

The core concept of only putting your energies in to those tasks and activities that are most essential in life is a pretty straight forward concept and I felt like the author spent too much time trying to convince the reader of it, and it could have been a couple chapters shorter. Also, despite the idea that the Esentialist lifestyle would allow one to spend more time with family, much of the Essentialist lifestyle seems to depend on others picking up the slack at home while the main breadwinner (whom this book is geared towards) focuses on themselves and their needs.

I liked this so much that I bought myself a copy. What enormously useful advice.
