Less but Better: The Art of Essentialism (Re-Release)

1h 1m | Dec 12, 2023

We’re taking the last few weeks of the year to revisit a few of our favorite and most impactful episodes. We invite you to ease into the new year considering what you can do to make it the best one yet; and we’re sure episodes like this one will help you do just that!  

Have you ever felt like you have so many things to do and EVERYTHING is a priority? Do you find yourself saying yes to every invitation, thus leaving yourself with little time to do the things that really matter most? If you’ve ever felt overcommitted, overworked, or overwhelmed- this episode is for you! 

This week we’re chatting about Essentialism- the deliberate practice of saying no and focusing only on what is truly important. Essentialism isn’t about getting more done in less time. It’s not about getting less done. It’s about getting only the right things done!! 

In this episode we discuss:

  • How to adopt the way of the Essentialist for a better quality of life
  • Understanding the Essentialist approach 
  • Ways to effectively and gracefully say “No!”
  • And much more!

This week’s gem:
