🔍 The Art of Essentialism

Picture this: You’re the Indiana Jones of your life, navigating through the jungle of ‘busyness’.

Essentialism is your map, helping you dodge unnecessary traps and focus on the treasure – what really matters. Greg McKeown is like your Yoda, teaching you that sometimes, doing less is the ultimate power move.

🔑 Key Takeaways:

  • The 90/10 rule: Only do the stuff that gives you massive results. Like choosing the right Netflix show on the first try.
  • Life editing: Chop out the time-wasters. Sorry, endless scrolling on social media.
  • Sleep is your superpower: Nap like a boss for better brain magic.

  • Be active, not passive: Like texting, but it’s your brain doing the talking.
