Time Management Tuesday: A Summer Reading Arc On Essentialism

Here comes one of our periodic time management book discussions. Last week I started reading Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown. While I wish I could recall how I learned of this book, I cannot.

In the past, I have written here about trying to find ways to do more by slowing down. I'm hopeful that McKeown's argument that we can do less, but better will help with that. I'm finding the book well written, well organized, and well researched. This isn't just some guy's quickie throw down of his thoughts.

If I understand essentialism, it's sort of like minimalism but for work and life activities. While minimalism is about how your surroundings impact you and your time, essentialism appears to be about how your choices impact you and your time. I am, you know, a big fan of minimalism, and right now I am very open to essentialism.

More to come in the next few weeks.
