In this week’s episode, Liz & Vince discuss lessons from one of Liz’s favorite books – Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown. In a culture that seems to value “busyness” over productivity, this discussion illuminates the idea that you can do less while contributing more. Liz & Vince discuss ten important guidelines to steer ourselves into living an essentialism lifestyle, using both excerpts from McKeown’s book and real-world applications from their personal journeys. As the author’s website asks, “[h]ave you ever felt stretched too thin?” We all have, and this episode will provide bundles of strategies to increase your productive efficiency, and as Vince explains, to protect your energy.
