Essentialism Part 3: The Elimination Game
Oct 13, 2021
A life defined by your decision to choose less, have it mean more and make a bigger impact?
You’re in the right place.
I’m discussing Greg McKeown’s book Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less with my friend Karen Backway. Karen is a physician turned life coach and we enjoy talking about what we study and how we use our studies in our lives.
We discuss Part 3 of McKeown’s book- ‘Eliminate- How can we cut out the trivial many?’ in this episode.
This is a more difficult section for me because I’m in the thick of it personally. And if you’re a person who finds it hard to say no, you’ll probably have some issues here too.
If you’re reading the book or just listening to our discussions, I’d love to hear how you’re applying this to your own life.
In future episodes, I’ll be featuring questions from listeners- other life owners like you. If you have a question, topic or situation you’d like for us to explore, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘podcast question’ in the subject line.
