As a follow-up to my post about being busy, I present to you Greg McKeown. He is an author who has been studying essentialism for over a decade. My colleague sent me this video last week and I’m hooked!
Greg’s words strongly resonate with me, as with many others who I work with. My favorite piece of advice is that you need space for thinking; thinking about what is truly essential in your life and then creating a plan for executing. Finding that space is the challenge.
Additionally, Greg hits the nail on the head on the art and challenge of saying no. It is painfully hard for me to say no to anyone: my family members, my friends, my boss, strangers, etc. What I liked about what Greg said is that saying no is a practice, it’s a muscle you can build. Thank God! Now it’s time for me to strengthen that muscle.
