The way of the Essentialist isn't about setting New Year's resolutions to say "no" more, or about pruning your in-box, or about mastering some new strategy in time management. It is about pausing constantly to ask, "Am I investing in the right activities?" There are far more activities and opportunities in the world than we have the time and resources to invest in. And although many of them may be good, or even very good, the fact is that most are trivial and few are vital. The way of Essentialist involves learning to tell the difference - learning to filter through all those options and selecting only those that are truly essential.
Essentialism is not about how to get more things done; it's about how to get the right things done.
