The ONE Thing team is a big supporter of the concept of drilling down to determine what’s most important in your life and making it a priority. That’s why we’re so excited about the guest of our next webinar, Greg McKeown.
As the author of the bestselling book, Essentialism, Greg’s thoughts on the subject are in alignment with our own. He is a believer in not trying to pursue everything in life, but rather focusing on what matters. He lives and breathes the concept of “pursuing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time.”
Like The ONE Thing, Essentialism supports being more selective with how we dedicate our time. By studying the successes and failures of others, Greg’s book explores how we often find ourselves stretched too thin and our days controlled by the requests of other people. And he’s found that Essentialists, those people who have discovered how to focus on what is most important to them, approach it by understanding four key areas:
- Essence: Understanding the necessary mind-set to choose what is most important
- Explore: Figuring out what inspires, is significant and matters
- Eliminate: Learning how to get rid of the non-essentials
- Execute: Making our goals more attainable by removing obstacles
