Essentialism Book Review:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Essentialism isn’t about getting more done in less time. It’s about getting only the right things done. “A timely, essential read for anyone who feels overcommitted, overloaded, or overworked.”—Adam Grant Have you ever: • found yourself stretched too thin? • simultaneously felt overworked and underutilized? • felt busy but not productive? • felt like your time is constantly being hijacked by other people’s agendas? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is the Way of the Essentialist. Essentialism is more than a time-management strategy or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the highest possible contribution toward the things that really matter. By forcing us to apply more selective criteria for what is Essential, the disciplined pursuit of less empowers us to reclaim control of our own choices about where to spend our precious time and energy—instead of giving others the implicit permission to choose for us. Essentialism is not one more thing—it’s a whole new way of doing everything. It’s about doing less, but better, in every area of our lives. Essentialism is a movement whose time has come.

Essentialism Book Review:

Have you ever found yourself struggling with information overload? Have you ever felt both overworked and underutilised? Do you ever feel busy but not productive? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is to become an Essentialist. In Essentialism, Greg McKeown, CEO of a Leadership and Strategy agency in Silicon Valley who has run courses at Apple, Google and Facebook, shows you how to achieve what he calls the disciplined pursuit of less. Being an Essentialist is about a disciplined way of thinking. It means challenging the core assumption of ‘We can have it all’ and ‘I have to do everything’ and replacing it with the pursuit of ‘the right thing, in the right way, at the right time'. By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter. Using the experience and insight of working with the leaders of the most innovative companies and organisations in the world, McKeown shows you how to put Essentialism into practice in your own life, so you too can achieve something great.

Against Essentialism Book Review:

Against Essentialism presents a sociological theory of culture. This interdisciplinary and foundational work deals with basic issues common to current debates in social theory, including society, culture, meaning, truth, and communication. Stephan Fuchs argues that many mysteries about these concepts lose their mysteriousness when dynamic variations are introduced. Fuchs proposes a theory of culture and society that merges two core traditions--American network theory and European (Luhmannian) systems theory. His book distinguishes four major types of social observers--encounters, groups, organizations, and networks. Society takes place in these four modes of association. Each generates levels of observation linked with each other into a culture--the unity of these observations. Against Essentialism presents a groundbreaking new approach to the construction of society, culture, and personhood. The book invites both social scientists and philosophers to see what happens when essentialism is abandoned.

Essentialism Book Review:

Man's greatest endowment is the ability to choose. For so long, we have always struggled to try to be in control of our choices and destiny. Wars have been fought, kingdoms split in the struggle to remain free and able to dictate our preferences. Yet, despite these exertions, the average individual today remains trapped under the misguided delusion that he has to do everything thrown into his part. Society has most people believing that they need to be constantly busy, to be able to convince themselves that they are making considerable progress. Most people subconsciously try to help more people, take on more tasks and engage in more activities (necessary and unnecessary). This means they are constantly on the move, doing this or that. They are always about to or just finished this task or the other. In short, their life is dictated by the whims of other people and a desire to be there for everybody. How can we escape this suffocating conundrum? How can you free yourself from the psychological burden and overwhelmingly crushing sensation that our lives can threaten to become? This is the spirit of essentialism. To be free means to engage in only the most essential of tasks that hold the most significance. This book tries to practically change your mindset and plan for achieving your lifestyle goals. It helps you create more time by keeping your priorities to the lowest, minimal number possible. The book focuses on; - Elucidating some of the more confusing aspects of essentialism - Helping you decide to get rid of the extra tasks weighing you down - Helping you to create the right mindset to help you achieve more - Teaching you to achieve more results by actually doing less - Giving practical tips for reducing the triggers of inefficiency - Explaining the importance of learning to delegate, outsource and leverage on other people's abilities and time - Providing practical advice to follow during the prioritizing process - Helping you incorporate essentialism into every facet of your lifestyle.

The Development of Social Essentialism Book Review:

Expecting a gentle baby tiger to inevitably grow up to be ferocious, a young girl growing up in a household of boys to prefer princesses to toy trucks, or that liberals and conservatives are fundamentally different kinds of people, all reflect a conceptual commitment to psychological essentialism. Psychological essentialism is a pervasive conceptual bias to think that some everyday categories reflect the real, underlying, natural structure of the world. Whereas essentialist thought can sometimes be useful, it is often problematic, particularly when people rely on essentialist thinking to understand groups of people, including those based on gender, race, ethnicity, or religion. This Volume will bring together diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives on how essentialist thinking about the social world develops in childhood and on the implications of these beliefs for children’s social behavior and intergroup relations more generally. This volume draws on diverse theoretical perspectives from psychology, philosophy, and linguistics, and empirical work from experiments with children and cross-cultural studies to provide a comprehensive view of how social essentialism develops. This volume addresses the link between cognition (essentialist beliefs) and social behavior, with implications for prejudice, morality, the justice system, and inter-group relations. By drawing on a diverse evidence base, this volume addresses how beliefs emerge from the interplay among children’s conceptual biases and their social experiences.

Real Essentialism Book Review:

Real Essentialism presents a comprehensive defence of neo-Aristotelian essentialism. Do objects have essences? Must they be the kinds of things they are in spite of the changes they undergo? Can we know what things are really like – can we define and classify reality? Many if not most philosophers doubt this, influenced by centuries of empiricism, and by the anti-essentialism of Wittgenstein, Quine, Popper, and other thinkers. Real Essentialism reinvigorates the tradition of realist, essentialist metaphysics, defending the reality and knowability of essence, the possibility of objective, immutable definition, and its relevance to contemporary scientific and metaphysical issues such as whether essence transcends physics and chemistry, the essence of life, the nature of biological species, and the nature of the person.

Essentialism in Business For Beginners Book Review:

Starting a business is a challenge for beginners. Be it a small or a big one, you have to have passion, enthusiasm and knowledge in order to succeed in it. Aside from endowing yourself with these, it is also important to equip yourself with an attitude of a risk taker, who knows how to make calculated risks, as any business enthusiast would say, a business is a wager that yields to either you winning or losing the game. If you are planning to put up a business, it is imperative to understand that doing so demands a lot of things to the business owner, the proprietor or the entrepreneur.

Essentialism Book Review:

Everybody is running up and down, busy and striving hard to do more so as to achieve more. Yet, the most successful achievers always seem to have a lot of time on their hands. Every other person on the planet is trying to put their hands in many pies at once yet the most remarkably successful personalities have very few endeavors at once. They focus more on what must be done rather than the things they feel they want to do. That is the most common denominator running through the lives of Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Nikolai Tesla, Elon Musk and Reverend Martin Luther King. They focus on the most essential things and requirements and shun every other thing. Essentialism is key to huge success and contentment but it is even much more effective when paired with minimalism. Essentialism and minimalism are two sides of the same coin; two peas in the same pod. They dovetail and complement each other perfectly without any conflict. Essentialism says; "Do less," minimalism screams; "Have less." Together, they can help you focus on your objectives, eliminate uncertain needs and derive the maximum from your potentials, strengths and opportunities. By conserving your artillery for the big and important occasions, you can ensure that you produce beyond expectations. Most especially, you will also attain great contentment, happiness and an inexhaustible supply of satisfaction and confidence. The latest book in my essentialism series, this book; - Convinces you further to jettison the consumerism principle - Further explains what essentialism is and what it is not - Gives you reasons to embrace essentialism as a life choice - Explains why society's idea of happiness is wrong - Teaches you to prioritize and stay true to your priorities - Redefines happiness and contentment - Demystifies minimalism - Defines the boundaries of minimalism - Gives you the reasons why minimalism is such a good idea - Shows the link between essentialism and minimalism - Advocates for why you can be a better essentialist by becoming minimalist - Provides compelling reason for you to join essentialism and minimalism - Shows you how to combine essentialism and minimalism - Provides a stepwise guide to building the right mindset for becoming an essentialist minimalist - Lays down the framework for adding minimalism to essentialism - Serves to prepare you for my next blockbuster bestselling book on essentialism GET YOUR COPY NOW!

Summary - Essentialism Book Review:

Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less - A Complete Summary Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less is a self-help book written by Greg McKeown. The core message of this book is the outline of a minimalist approach to every kind of task or obligation. Rather than focusing on multitasking and on doing "more things at once," the author suggests that we should instead be focusing on doing what is important. Since we live in a world where speed is everything and where the most important thing is to know how to successfully combine speed and efficiency, people are often told that multitasking is what it is all about. If we read this book, we will see that there are easier ways to get things done. Essentialism is a book to educate readers about how all things - tasks, obligations, and assignments - have a certain priority; some may be more urgent or important, while others are less so. If we know how to differentiate between the more and less important tasks, and we also know how to focus on the more important ones, we will know what to finish first. This is where Essentialism comes to action. The book is interesting to read and full of eye-opening advice that will surely do a lot of good for many readers. After the introduction we will try to summarize the book by presenting the most important facts from the original book. So, let's get started. Here Is A Preview Of What You Will Get: - In Essentialism, you will get a summarized version of the book. - In Essentialism, you will find the book analyzed to further strengthen your knowledge. - In Essentialism, you will get some fun multiple choice quizzes, along with answers to help you learn about the book.
