I recently read the book Essentialism by Greg McKeown. It is an insightful read for those who feel chronically time-starved, stressed, hurried, and dissatisfied with how much remains undone. McKeown suggests that we adopt a “disciplined pursuit of less” in an effort to ultimately be more productive, and to contribute to our personal and professional world in the most meaningful way.
This does not mean doing less as much as making more discerning choices from options that matter most to us. He describes a process of learning to identify between the “vital few and the trivial many.” Working in a family means diverse source of stress, and this book provides some very helpful considerations that may help you make optimal choices in your management of life!
