ESSENTIALISM The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

by | Read by Greg McKeown

Business & Finance • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

In this genuine-sounding personal effectiveness audio, Greg McKeown's narration is compassionate, almost meditative, and a good fit for the slowly building thoughtfulness of his excellent book. Born in London and blessed with a pleasing voice, he has a calm confidence that makes it easy to slow down and absorb the large and small ideas he offers. McKeown says that once we reclaim the choices we have about our lives, we can become better at doing what's essential by eliminating irrelevant noise, accepting the reality of trade-offs, being explicit and rigorous about our priorities, and adopting behavioral routines. None of these ideas are new, but McKeown's quiet delivery allows for their absorption and makes this an audio lesson that lingers in the heart and spurs lasting change.
