Do you struggle to find the balance between hard work and burnout? Does it sometimes seem impossible to get it all done? Once you’ve hit a wall and you strip away all the nonessentials, does it still seem too much? Then it’s time for a new approach.
That’s exactly what author Greg McKeown discusses in his new book Effortless: Making it Easy to Do What Matters. Hard work is indeed a virtue, he agrees, but Greg argues that any virtue can become a vice when taken too far. Greg shares strategies and practices to avoid physical and mental burnout while cultivating an effortless state of focus, smarter productivity, and, most importantly, long-term sustainability.
