145: What Actually Matters? How to Identify and Protect the Essentials with Greg McKeown

RISE podcast - May 5, 2020 - 1:02:21

Let's talk essentials: when you're face to face with hard choices, what flashes through your mind? What really matters? In order to tackle this incredibly important topic for our #Next90Days Challenge, I had to call on the master of essentialism himself; Greg McKeown. If you're not familiar with Greg's work, here's a little refresher: his New York Times bestselling book Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less has transformed the way individuals and team view measures of success by stripping away everything that's standing in their way. What is left are the essentials, and that's exactly what we're diving into today.If you want to dive more into essentialism (and I highly recommend that you do) please check out Greg's website where you can view his interviews with top performers, check out his social media, and sign up for his newsletter!--Do you have a question for Rachel? Wanna share your work from home stories, or have a question about what to do as you move through hard things? Give us a call! Seriously! Call (737) 400-HOCO, and press 1 to leave a question for Rach or Dave (or both). Press 2 to share a story about your journey - it can be about your Start Today Journal, attending a RISE conference, coaching, or anything you want!The best part? You only have to share your name and voice if you want to? Let us know when you leave your message and we'll take care of the rest.We can't wait to hear from you ;)--Look, we can’t control what’s happening in the world, but we can control how we show up in it.
