I just finished a great book called “Essentialism”, by Greg McKeown. As I read it, Essentialism is at the core of Character: What will you FOCUS on in your brief time on earth? The “non-essentialist” thinks everything is important — and therefore focuses on nothing — while hte Essentialist recognizes that only a few things are important. The Essentialist therefore spends her or his time on only a few items, even while scanning a broad variety of inputs to make sure that she or he is not “blind-sided”.
I love this quote: Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. — Margaret Mead.
What is essential in your life? What is your dream?
