Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown
Essentialism is about deciding what's really important in your life and trimming away everything else that isn't so that you can focus on what is. There are four parts to this book. Part I is about the "Essence" of an Essentialist. Part II is titled "Explore" and focuses on how to figure out what really is important. Part III is called "Eliminate" and includes a great, practical section on how to say No. The last part is called "Execute" about making the things we do even easier.
This is a brilliant book. It goes against our culture of busyness and trying to fit everything in. This is also a very practical and accessible book as well. I am thinking that it could apply pretty much to anyone in any kind of work at any stage of life. I'm planning on reading this book again in a little while.
