About This Class

We all have the power to craft a productive, balanced life we love. The key? Focus on the essential and let go of the rest.

Years ago, best-selling author and speaker Greg McKeown found himself in a work meeting the very afternoon his daughter had been born. He realized he was trying to do everything—and please everyone—all of the time. Since then, he’s honed a whole new approach to productivity: Essentialism. Focused on quality instead of quantity, Greg controls his own time, spends his energy deliberately, and has crafted an intentional life that works.

Now, in a productivity class like no other, Greg is sharing the key tenets of Essentialism. Through reflective questions, examples, anecdotes, you’ll discover:

  • How to decide what’s most important to you
  • Tactics for saying no to non-essential commitments
  • Day-to-day tips for running an Essentialist life
  • Ways to hold yourself accountable for the long-term

Plus, Greg shares his favorite actionable tips that you can start using in your life today, from the art of the “slow yes” to finding focus in any environment.

After this class, you’ll think about productivity in a whole new way. Instead of feeling the pressure to fit more in, you’ll find yourself evaluating the worth of new tasks, commitments, and goals from the start, giving you the power to curate a fulfilling, balanced life.
