About The Book
Title: Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
Author: Greg McKeown
Publication Date: 2014
Description: Have you ever:
found yourself stretched too thin?
simultaneously felt overworked and underutilized?
felt busy but not productive?
felt 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.
Essentialism is more than 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 toward the things that really matter.
By forcing us to apply 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. It’s about doing less, but better, in every area of our lives. Essentialism is a movement whose time has come.
“A timely, essential read for anyone who feels overcommitted, overloaded, or overworked.”—Adam Grant
About the ICF NYC Breakfast and Book Club
Meetings will be held consistently on the second Monday of each month at 8 AM New York time (except where may be otherwise indicated). Attendance at every meeting is not necessary. You may participate based upon your preference for the book. The intended purpose of this offering is to broaden and deepen our knowledge of current practices in the coaching profession and in the business world.
Please register early! If registration is low, or non-existent, for any specific book, we will revisit the selection and float a poll to the membership to select a replacement book. We therefore encourage participants to register early for meetings so that we may assess interest at an early stage.
Please be sure to read at least portions of the book so that meaning, intent and application may be discussed with depth.
As with any virtual call, please be prepared to have your video and audio on, with limited distraction. Turn off all notifications.
Come in your pajamas! We don’t care about how you look, only the intellectual contribution you bring.
