Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
by Greg McKeown
Sometimes you read something that stops you in your tracks. For me, it's this book. For those of us who are highly-functioning and drowning in responsibility, this is a bible of sorts. Greg McKeown says that essentialism is about "exploring the very critical things you want to pursue, and being willing to eliminate the rest. Then, building a platform for effortless execution so that doing what is essential becomes the default, not just a rare occasion." It's an insightful read and will be a great resource to refer back to, often. I do!
