CXR Book Club: Practicing Essentialism

By Barb Ruess posted 04-04-2023 09:30 AM


In today's world, we are bombarded each day with information and distractions that can make it difficult to focus on what matters. As a result, many of us are left stretched thin, busy but unproductive, and dissatisfied with the balance in our lives. That's where essentialism comes in - a philosophy and mindset that can help us cut through the noise and focus on what's truly important in our lives.

This month in our CXR Book Club, we'll be gathering to discuss the book Essentialism by Greg McKeown, which outlines a simple but powerful approach to life. McKeown defines essentialism as "the disciplined pursuit of less," which means focusing only on the most important things and ignoring the rest. It's about making deliberate choices and saying no to distractions, so you can free up time and energy for what truly matters to you.

The benefits of essentialism are many. By focusing only on what's essential, you can reduce stress and increase your productivity. You can also gain a greater sense of purpose and direction in life since you'll spend your time on things that align with your values and goals.

Ultimately, essentialism is about living a more intentional and fulfilling life. By focusing on what's essential, you can create more meaning and purpose in your life and positively impact the world around you.

The CXR Book Club is open to all, so I hope you'll join us on April 14th for our conversation on essentialism. Learn more and register here
