Essentialism

The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett once advised a friend to list the top 25 things he wanted to accomplish, then pick the 5 most important. Those 5 became his focus list. The other 20? That was his Avoid-At-All-Costs list.

You could be a Tim Ferris fan. You may have heard of Pareto’s Law or the 80/20 Principle. You might be familiar with Kevin Kelley’s 1,000 true fans. Or you may have even read Greg McKeown’s fabulous book. If you haven’t, you should.

We think all these people are onto something.
