INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER Have you ever found yourself stretched too thin? Do you simultaneously feel overworked and underutilized? Are you often busy but not productive? Do you feel like your time is constantly being hijacked by other people's agendas? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is the "Way of the Essentialist." 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 we can make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter. By forcing us to apply a more selective criteria for what is Essential, the disciplined pursuit of less empowers us to reclaim control of our own choices about where to spend our precious time and energy - instead of giving others the implicit permission to choose for us. Essentialism is not one more thing - it's a whole new way of doing everything. A must-read for any leader, manager, or individual who wants to learn who to do less, but better, in every area of their lives, Essentialism is a movement whose time has come.

I agree with his basic premise (though he does restate some stuff that is pretty old news, scientifically).

However, I am coming to the conclusion that the people who write these books are on a different social/economic level than most of the population. 90% of the time I can't walk up to my boss and say no. He really doesn't care/want to respect me. Most people are pretty similar. I guess that is where Simon Sinek really resonates with me. He addresses people who can probably solve the problem.

Maybe in 10 years I'll be at that point. Today, though, I'm not. ( )

Manufacturing a few more hours in the day has been ruled out, so when things get busy it's time to say no, or to stop doing things and see if anyone notices. Labor-saving devices are largely ignored by this middle-management confection, which argues that most labor is too trivial to pursue-or at least its value is untested, as in overbuilt software. Managers know much of this, but may still benefit from the chance to contemplate the time and money freed up by skimming all the nice-to-haves from their next project.

Se você se sente sobrecarregado e ao mesmo tempo subutilizado, ocupado mas pouco produtivo, e se o seu tempo parece servir apenas aos interesses dos outros, você precisa conhecer o essencialismo.

O essencialismo é mais do que uma estratégia de gestão de tempo ou uma técnica de produtividade. Trata-se de um método para identificar o que é vital e eliminar todo o resto, para que possamos dar a maior contribuição possível àquilo que realmente importa.

Quando tentamos fazer tudo e ter tudo, realizamos concessões que nos afastam da nossa meta. Se não decidimos onde devemos concentrar nosso tempo e nossa energia, outras pessoas – chefes, colegas, clientes e até a família – decidem por nós, e logo perdemos de vista tudo o que é significativo.

Neste livro, Greg McKeown mostra que, para equilibrar trabalho e vida pessoal, não basta recusar solicitações aleatoriamente: é preciso eliminar o que não é essencial e se livrar de desperdícios de tempo. Devemos aprender a reduzir, simplificar e manter o foco em nossos objetivos.

Quando realizamos tarefas que não aproveitam nossos talentos e assumimos compromissos só para agradar aos outros, abrimos mão do nosso poder de escolha. O essencialista toma as próprias decisões – e só entra em ação se puder fazer a diferença.

"Greg McKeown nos lembra que a clareza de foco e a capacidade de dizer 'não' são aspectos desvalorizados porém fundamentais para os negócios nos dias de hoje." – Jeff Weiner, presidente-executivo do LinkedIn

Interesting. I'm not attempting to downplay what's said in this book, but I think "Essentialism" is just Japanese "Minimalism" applied also to human activity and business practices instead of just possessions. That being said, I wish more company executives practiced what McKeown preaches, especially in terms of clarity of purpose for teams in both goals and performance evaluation. This should be required reading for all managers.
I agree with other reviewers that the book was overly long and repetitive considering its message is Essentialism. ( )

I like the ideas put forward in the book. Unfortunately, like so many self-help books, the advice of Essentialism feels classist. Almost all of the examples are geared towards people that are in high paying business careers. It’s a bit harder to imagine applying the suggestions to minimum wage work. Whether or not it can be applied regardless of position, working class, or education level doesn’t seem to have been a high priority for the author. The book certainly makes you want to look at your life and priorities differently. Maybe the advice can work for everyone if they truly commit to it. Still I would have like it a bit better if the book felt inclusive of more socioeconomic backgrounds. ( )

The Invincible Power of Choosing to Choose

For too long, we have overemphasized the external aspect of choices (our options) and underemphasized our internal ability to choose (our actions). This is more than semantics. Think about it this way. Options (things) can be taken away, while our core ability to choose (free will) cannot be.
If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will.
The ability to choose cannot be taken away or even given away—it can only be forgotten.
The overwhelming reality is: we live in a world where almost everything is worthless and a very few things are exceptionally valuable. As John Maxwell has written, “You cannot overestimate the unimportance of practically everything.”
A Non-essentialist thinks almost everything is essential.

An Essentialist thinks almost everything is nonessential.
