This is a great book. I think this quote is a good summary of it.

"In this example is the basic value proposition of Essentialism: only once you give yourself permission to stop trying to do it all, to stop saying yes to everyone, can you make your highest contribution towards the things that really matter."

There is some great advice in this book that could help someone focus on what matters. I should probably skim it (or read it again) and do a better job of jotting down notes instead of just highlighting the 100+ passages I highlighted.
