Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

I am fascinated with the philosophy of Essentialism, and even though Greg McKeown is targeting successful people, and telling them that if they clear all the unessential things out of their lives, they will have more time to think more creatively. However everyone can take something out of the concept of Essentialism and declutter their lives where they are able, streamline things to help them live more satisfying and ultimately happier lives. Stress is such an awful thing, and something we must do our best to control as long term health problems will occur. The body can only take a certain amount of stress without breaking down. Some of the points Greg makes in his book are valid and can be acted on by everyone who wants to.

“fantastic (& I generally don’t like these kinds of books)”

“helping myself”, self-help books have always turned me off. Books i’ve read seem self indulgent, with the author telling you how awesome they are, all these amazing people they’ve helped, and how once they share their…Read more

“How To Live Essentially”

“Do Meaningfully More”

This book struck a deep chord. I was busy doing many projects, but had seemed to slow down progress. I was doing too much. Or rather, too many. Do fewer things, but do them better, deeper, and more meaningfully. It really works. This is powerful stuff…Read more

Stress is made up of so many things, but the main thing is just not having the time to do all we need to do.  If we don’t sleep our 7 -8 hours that are needed to give us the clarity of thought and energy we need to get through the day, then we are asking for trouble.  We just can’t keep the pace of rushing without suffering burnout in some form or other.  Women who have young children and have to go to work to help with the very high mortgage payments, are very at risk of burnout and possible clinical depression.  I remember the very difficult days when I was a young divorced mother of two small children and having to work as well as get my eldest to her school whilst my young son went to nursery school.  i was fortunate inasmuch I had no option but return to my parents house and Mum was able to take my son to nursery school every day, whilst I took my daughter, before rushing to get my train into the city to get to work on time.  Just the rush was extremely stressful, the worst thing was how your stress will affect how the children behave.  When I met my husband and eventually emigrated to the UK I came to a quiet village, I didn’t have to rush anymore, the peace and quiet was deafening at first, but when i adjusted to the slower pace and quieter life, it was wonderful.  of course that didn’t last very long, but long enough for me to be determined not to go back to the stress of rushing anymore.
