Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

Constant activity defines modern life. Throttled by countless meetings, after-school programs, responsibilities, and plans, many people find it challenging to simply keep pace, let alone succeed in everything they do. Sadly, this experience is increasingly common and entirely draining. It pulls people away from considering their true desires and empties every day of the delight it carries. The best-selling author Greg McKeown knows this well and channels his personal and professional know-how into a crash course on “Essentialism”—an inspiring alternative for lives that have grown so encumbered by content that their substance is all but hollow.
