Be it the worries of managing family life or trying to work out what’s important among the noise of everyday living, focusing on what’s really essential is tough. If we don’t dig in though and decide what matters most to us, life can become a chaotic, directionless mess.
Greg McKeown is the author of New York Times bestseller Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less and, since its 2014 release, Greg has travelled the world sharing about its core truth of doing “less but better”, becoming the authority on a lifestyle that encourages individuals and business alike to prioritise their “highest point of contribution”.
In this Power Lunch with Laura episode, Greg talks about the lie of non-essentialist living, why the world will change after the year that “sent us to ours rooms” and how to view life as a mission not a career.
Greg’s next book Effortless: Make it Easier to Do What Matters Most is available for pre-order now.
