NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * A Times (UK) Best Book of the Year * From the author of the million-copy-selling Essentialism comes an empowering guide to achieving your goals. It all starts with a simple principle: Not everything has to be so hard.
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 tools for making the most essential activities the easiest ones, so you can achieve the results you want, without burning out. Honed over the better part of a decade, these strategies include:
*Turning tedious tasks into enjoyable rituals
*Preventing frustration by solving problems before they arise
*Setting a sustainable pace instead of powering through
*Making one-time choices that eliminate many future decisions
*Making relationships easier to maintain and manage
*And much more
McKeown's philosophy of essentialism has helped thousands to recognise that the effortless way isn't the lazy way. It's the smart way. Not every hard thing in life can be made easy but we can make it easier to do more of what matters most. Effortless will show you how.

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?
