What is Essentialism?

April 18th at noon, learn about how to become an essentialist!

When people ask you how you are doing is your immediate response, “I’m so busy!”

  • Are you feeling stretched too thin by the competing demands of career, family and community involvement?
  • Do you feel overworked and underutilized?
  • Do you feel you are majoring in minor activities?
  • Do you ever feel busy but not productive?  

If you answered yes to any (or all) of these, the way out is the way of the Essentialist. What is the way of the Essentialist? The relentless pursuit of “less but better” and doing so in a disciplined way!  

Who are Essentialists?

Essentialists have learned that it is not about just getting things done, but how to focus on “the vital few” so that we get the only the right things done!   What we say “no” to is oftentimes more important than what we say “yes” to and applies to both strategic planning and operational decision making.

In this session, Rod and Ann, both repeat “over committers”, will share how they have found relief and sanity in their personal and professional lives by applying the principles from Greg McKeown’s book “Essentialism:  The Disciplined Pursuit of Less”. You will discover the secret of how Essentialist think and what they do differently and how you can apply these principles to your own life.
