The Power of Essentialism: Simplify to Amplify


It’s easy to get caught in the whirlwind of doing more, achieving more, and constantly seeking more.

But what if the key to success isn’t doing more, but doing less — and doing it right?

One of my favorite books is Greg McKeown’s “Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less”. Written by a man who missed the birth of his firstborn for a sales meeting he didn’t land.

From that lesson and more, he talks of the importance of making wise choices about where to spend our time and energy.

In fact, we adapted many of these same principles into our Time Design course.

Instead of focusing on being “busy”, I invite you to seek out what is truly essential and to give your best efforts to only that.

Here are some key things to keep in mind as you consider this path:

  • The Power of Choice: Remember, every commitment or task we say ‘yes’ to means saying ‘no’ to something else. Choose wisely.

  • The Myth of “I Have To”: Instead of saying “I have to,” start saying “I choose to.” This reframing empowers you to recognize and act on your choices.

  • The Joy of Less: In a crowded room, a whisper can be more powerful than a shout. Likewise, in our lives, a few well-chosen actions will have a bigger impact than many hasty ones.

That’s all great Tanya, But how can I really practice Essentialism right now?

The One-Thing Challenge:

  1. Look at your upcoming week.
  2. Choose just one task, commitment, or obligation that you can intentionally let go of or delegate.
  3. Then cancel it, chuck it, or give it to someone else.


That’s it. Just one thing.

Find it and LET. IT. GO.

Simplicity isn’t just a buzzword — it’s the future of success.

In a world inundated with noise, the clear, focused, and essential voice stands out.

Embrace the principles of Essentialism and let the power of less guide you to greater impact.
