Book: Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less | Greg McKeown


While I had already read this book a couple of years ago, I found myself reaching for it on my bookshelf this week. I am not certain of what motivated me to do so, but I believe it has much to do with the “self-reflection” that the current COVID-19 pandemic (or any type of crisis) compels many of us to do on our life in general, our relationships and priorities, and how we spend our time. While the book provides some great suggestions for prioritizing one’s life by focusing on what is most important, it also has an application for how we can develop simpler HR tools, processes, and systems that drive better execution, engagement, employee experience, and business results within our organizations. If you find yourself with a little extra time this week, this might be a good book to read in the coming days.
