Short and sweet

I especially liked the emphasis on investing in oneself. This is a nice gift idea for anyone who appreciates self improvement goals but doesn't want to invest the time in a long book.

“that really mattered and get back time for his family. The essentialist gives himself permission to stop trying to do everything. In so doing, he focuses on what is vital and, subsequently, makes meaningful contributions in core areas of his work and life. The essentialist knows he is constantly surrounded by noise. His ultimate goal is to filter through the noise to find the few things that are essential. Essentialism is, by definition, the pursuit of less but better.” 0 likes
