I’ve started reading a book, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, by Greg McKeown. It’s one that I found recommended through Amazon after purchasing another book that I was looking for. I couldn’t help myself.
It’s that subtitle that catches my attention.
Here’s an opening chapter quote by Lin Yutang, a Chinese writer:
The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.
I’m looking forward to reading this book. No, I’m not on a hunt for utter efficiency. White space matters. But to be stirred by writings on the practice of essence, yes, this is something I’m looking forward too.
