After several friends and colleagues recommend Essentialism and after feeling exceptionally stressed about my list of obligations, I decided to check it out. Essentialism, The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, by Greg McKewon, is a book about getting the right things done vs. getting more done in less time. Read my summary and thoughts.
I recently finished reading Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business by Gino Wickman. (Reading the book and writing this post were two tasks on my 12 Week Year for Q1 2021.) Traction came recommended to me by several colleagues whose recommendations I value highly, so I wanted to check it out for myself.
Last year I wrote my first year in review post. In it, I detailed what happened in 2018 and what I wanted to accomplish in 2019. To hold myself accountable, I created a Google sheet with all the specifics and a monthly reminder to update the sheet. Let’s see how I measured up! (Oh yeah, and talk about my plans for 2020.)
Before we get too far into 2019, I want to take a moment to reflect on the wild ride that was 2018.
