Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less is a self-help book by Greg McKeown. The book outlines a minimalist approach to tasks and obligations by focusing on truly important goals and learning to turn down opportunities that do not directly contribute to meeting those goals. The modern fixation on multitasking and having it all has paradoxically resulted in accomplished, motivated people doing many relatively unimportant things poorly while neglecting their true goals because they are afraid of refusing any request....

"Hard to stay focused with the narrator"
I really did not like the narrator to this short synopsis of the real essentialism book.
1) I thought I purchased the real essentialism book THIS IS NOT IT
2) the narrators voice is robotic and so hard to stay focused with. I gave up listening to this within the first few chapters. I do not recommend.
I bought this audio book thinking it is the original book. Title is misleading and don't have enough to content. Dissapointed
"The Truth Hurts (a bit). It's worth knowing."
Thinking: Fast and Slow; 30 minute key takeaways...Distills the 500 pages down to 5 or so lessons learned.
I realized the I (many others) distract ourselves from life instead of focusing on the few important issues.
Pick one area and DO IT and keep a log of your success.... simple.... Green days on you desk calendar when you complete an action, red when you give in to temptation to ignore.
"Boring and lightweight"
Not worth the listen to. I suggest buy the actual book if you are interested and study at a leisurely pace. Even though, I found this book tedious and not very interesting.
