Simple Productivity: How to Accomplish More with Less

Greg McKeown

Overview

It takes us so long to get into a real 'productivity zone', but something as simple as a text message can pull us out of it in seconds. Often, the reason why we're not getting as much done as we can is because we're too easily distracted. Sure, we may feel like we're constantly busy, but that doesn't necessarily mean we're being productive.

Fortunately, Greg McKeown knows a thing or two about Essentialism, which is all about doing more of the 'right' jobs, and not wasting time on the stuff that doesn't really matter. McKeown is best known for his book Essentalism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, which is all about boosting productivity levels while freeing up more of your spare time.

Unfortunately, if you don't prioritize your life, someone else will for you. In this course, McKeown shares the key takeaways for how to live an essentialist life.

"You can do fewer things, better, do the most important things, feel a greater piece, feel a greater sense of control that your life is not at the mercy of the things that don't matter at all."
