First off, I read the book and thought it was terrible so I almost skipped this podcast episode. I’m so glad I was running and it was just a bit difficult to reach into my bag to grab my phone and turn it off because this was a great episode.
In fact, Essentialism is on my list to read again in a different light. I came into it thinking of it more like a book about saying no to tech and stuff, but it’s really a book about figuring out what is the crucial stuff you care about so that you can build a life around those crucial things.
Funny enough, next Wednesday’s video/post is all about this exact idea.
