Essentialism with Greg McKeown

Aug 03 2020 53 mins 146

Have you ever found yourself stretched too thin? Felt busy but not productive? Or like your time is constantly being hijacked by other people’s agendas? I'm Greg McKeown, and welcome to the Essentialism podcast. Through my best-selling book Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, I've been fortunate to help many people deliberately distinguish the vital few from the trivial many and then remove these obstacles to create a clear path to accomplishing what matters. The Way of the Essentialist is not about trying to fit it all in - it's about fitting in only what matters. Aspiring essentialists are always asking me for how they can apply these principles to their own lives. They want real examples from real people. This Essentialism podcast is my answer. Every week, we have conversations - sometimes with thought leaders, sometimes with celebrities, and often with people like you and me - to understand what they want to prioritize and help them apply Essentialism to achieve their goals in real life. I answer listener questions and talk about my own experiences as well, as I too am an aspiring Essentialist! You're invited to join us and take an hour or two a week to focus on learning how to put what matters to you first. After all, if you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will.

Hello, my name is Greg McKeown, and welcome to the Essentialism podcast! Ever since I made the mistake of leaving my hours old baby and my wife, Anna, in the hospital as I went to a non-essential client meeting, I've been on a mission: to get into conversations with the people I meet to encourage them to explore what is essential, how they can eliminate what is not, and to make it as easy as possible to do what really does matter. I've had that conversation through writing a New York Times bestselling book, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, through working with leaders at companies like Apple and Google, and through many interviews, including hundreds of podcasts. But now, and I am absolutely thrilled about this, I get to have that conversation directly with you on an ongoing basis for the first time! Some episodes will be a conversation directly from me to you about what I'm learning, what I'm still getting wrong, along with actionable advice for putting essentialism into practice for real. Some episodes will be conversations with people who are inspiring to me, challenging me to do better, be better. Sometimes we'll have an Ask Me Anything episode. And one day, in the future, I'll be gallivanting out on the road and we'll do some live shows together. The Essentialism podcast will launch in June, episodes will drop every Monday, and you can find me wherever you usually listen to your podcasts. So join me, subscribe right now. Find a design partner to listen with. Invite your friends, family, coworkers, everyone, because here's what I know for sure: you and I have a unique and essential mission in life. And to me, that's a conversation worth having. That conversation is essential. Produced in partnership between Greg McKeown and Wheelhouse Entertainment!
