Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown

Book Club: 22 May - 7:00 to 8:00 pm
Virtual using Zoom


Have you ever felt overworked, spread too thin, and perpetually busy yet unproductive? Or perhaps you’ve said “Yes” to a request and found yourself regretting it afterward. Are you really working on the right things for YOU? These are some of thoughtful and thought-provoking considerations Greg McKeown discusses in his book, “Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less”.

Essentialism is fundamentally about designing and taking control of your life. Knowing the right things you must do, rejecting everything else, and directing your time and energy to create the biggest impact where it matters. How does one do this?

McKeown offers his Five Big Ideas, a 3-Part Model for Becoming an Essentialist, 8 ways to say “No”, and delves into reward mechanisms that we can use with children as well as adults. He explains how success can become a catalyst for failure in which you become known as the go-to person who attracts more and more assignments and invitations leaving you stretched too thinly across too many efforts.

Come join our book club discussion on May 22nd at 7 pm. Learn about McKeown’s perspective and share your own insights. Hear others’ thoughts about the key to increasing effectiveness by choosing what you want to pursue rather than allowing others to make that choice for you.

“If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will.”
