If you asked me to recommend one book to everyone in the world--especially creative professionals--this would be it.

​Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less - by Greg McKeown​

This book taught me so many things:

  • How to say "no" early and often
  • How to prioritize my needs over others
  • How to remove work that doesn't excite me
  • How to be more productive, but less busy

I began reading this one at a point in my life when I was stretched way too thin, and was hitting my breaking point.

Within days of reading it, I started to reclaim my space and time for myself. Today, if a new opportunity isn't a "hell, yeah", it's almost always a "no".

There's way more in this book than I can pack into a newsletter, so I highly recommend you check it out if my story sounds like yours. I promise you won't regret it ❀️
