The Essientialist

Many of us stretch ourselves too thin trying to take on more work than we can handle. We say yes to requests before really thinking about it, we commit to doing things simply to please or to avoid trouble, etc. However, this can cause us to feel overworked, busy and stressed. More importantly, fulfilling all the requests of others means we won’t have much time to spend on working towards our own goals.

Essence - What is the core mind-set of an Essientialist?

You have the power to choose what you want to do. No matter how stuck in a situation you feel, no matter how little control you have over your options, you always have the control over how you choose what to do. When you do not embrace the power to choose, you are actually surrendering the power for someone else to choose for you.

Explore-How Can We Discern The Trivial Many From the Vital Few?

To understand what you need to focus on, you need to filter the essential facts, options, and opinions from the nonessential. You will have to pay attention to what is not being said, ie. the information you do not have, and the various details that show you different perspectives of the same situation to gain a more objective understanding of your situation.

Eliminate-How Can We Cut Out The Trivial Many?

A high level of clarity about what your team stands for, what their goals and roles are is necessary for you to consistently work towards achieving them. A lack of clarity, on the other hand, leads to confusion, stress, and frustration.

How Can You Make Doing The Few Vital Things Almost Effortless?

We live in an unpredictable world where we constantly face the unexpected. Dealing with problems that keep cropping up will keep you distracted and busy. You will not be able to function as productively and efficiently as normal. 

The present is in your control. Work hard at what you can do right now and you will get the results you desire.

"Essentialists accept the reality that we can never fully anticipate or prepare for every scenario or eventuality; the future is simply too unpredictable. Instead, they build in buffers to reduce the friction caused by the unexpected."

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
