'In a world beset by burnout, Greg McKeown's work is essential' -- Daniel H. Pink

'Effortless shows that achieving more doesn't have to be as hard as we make it out to be' -- Arianna Huffington


FROM THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF ESSENTIALISM COMES A GUIDE TO MAKING THE MOST IMPORTANT TASKS EFFORTLESS


The intricacy of modern life has created a false dichotomy between things that are 'hard and important,' and those that are 'easy and trivial.' Everything has become so much harder than it ought to be. But, Greg McKeown, bestselling author of Essentialism, says, there is a third alternative. In Effortless, he offers practical strategies for making the most vital tasks the easiest ones. Honed over the better part of a decade, these strategies include:

* Asking 'What Step Can I Remove?' (accomplish more, in fewer steps)
* Having the Courage to Be Rubbish (prioritize progress over perfection)
* Deciding What 'Done' Looks Like (don't keep running after you pass the finish line)

McKeown's philosophy of essentialism has helped thousands to eliminate nonessential activities and focus on the few that really matter. Working out what is essential is the first step - making these tasks effortless is the next. Effortless will show you how.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A good book for anyone feeling the familiar creep of overwhelm: McKeown shows us how to break down what we need to do and, building on the message of Essentialism, probably do less, but do it better. * Financial Times, Books of the Month *
A prescription for starting something new, making it grow, and then watching the results. It's a brilliant read for the stuck and unstuck among us. * John Brandon, Forbes *
If you're squandering energy on pointless tasks and struggling to complete what really matters, this book is your salvation. With brisk prose, great stories, and keen insights, it shows how to flip the script-and make the trivial stuff harder and the crucial stuff easier. In a world beset by burnout, Greg McKeown's work is essential. * Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of When, Drive, and To Sell Is Human *
We all pride ourselves on being hard workers, but what should we do when we want to push ourselves even harder and have reached our upper limit? In his new book, Greg McKeown offers the solution: Instead of giving up, burning out, or sacrificing our sanity, we can find an easier path. Full of simple strategies we can adopt right away, Effortless shows that achieving more doesn't have to be as hard as we make it out to be. * Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of Thrive Global *
Every once in a while, a new book comes along at just the right moment. At a time when fear, uncertainty, and our ever-growing list of responsibilities - both at work and at home - have come to feel like much too much to handle, Greg McKeown's new book couldn't be timelier, or more necessary. * Eve Rodsky, New York Times bestselling author of Fair Play *
