Business. Self-Improvement. Nonfiction. Economics. HTML: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.

??In a world beset by burnout, Greg McKeown??s work is essential.???Daniel H. Pink, author of When, Drive, and To Sell Is Human 
??At a time when fear, uncertainty, and our ever-growing list of responsibilities have come to feel like much too much to handle, Effortless couldn??t be timelier, or more necessary.???Eve Rodsky, author of Fair Play

Do you ever feel like:
? You??re teetering right on the edge of burnout?
? You want to make a higher contribution, but lack the energy?  
? You??re running faster but not moving closer to your goals?
? Everything is so much harder than it used to be?
As high achievers, we??ve been conditioned to believe that the path to success is paved with relentless work. That if we want to overachieve, we have to overexert, overthink, and overdo. That if we aren??t perpetually exhausted, we??re not doing enough.
But lately, working hard is more exhausting than ever. And the more depleted we get, the more effort it takes to make progress. Stuck in an endless loop of ??Zoom, eat, sleep, repeat,? we??re often working twice as hard to achieve half as much.
Getting ahead doesn??t have to be as hard as we make it. No matter what challenges or obstacles we face, there is a better way: instead of pushing ourselves harder, we can find an easier path. 
Effortless offers actionable advice for making the most essential activities the easiest ones, so you can achieve the results you want, without burning out.  
Effortless teaches you how to:
? Turn tedious tasks into enjoyable rituals
? Prevent frustration by solving problems before they arise  
? Set a sustainable pace instead of powering through
? Make one-time choices that eliminate many future decisions
? Simplify your processes by removing unnecessary steps
? Make relationships easier to maintain and manage
? And much more   
The effortless way isn't the lazy way. It's the smart way. It may even be the only way.

This book would have been a life-changer for me a few years ago. Since then, however, I've figured out most of what McKeown talks about on my own. As a result, I found the book trite, superficial, and boring. A string of cliches positioned as earth-shattering wisdom, but with no actionable advice.

I expect the message of this book will resonate deeply with the people who desperately need to hear it. I'm no longer one of those people, so I struggled to finish this one. ( )

The earlier book (Essentialism deals) with how to define the most important things to focus on, vs this one focuses on making those important things activities also the easiest ones to achieve. In this summary, you'll learn:
• How to into the Effortless State, where you’re relaxed and functioning at an optimal mental, emotional, and physical condition.
• How to take Effortless Action to get better results with less effort.
• How to enjoy Effortless Results that deliver repeated benefits with little or no additional effort.
In a way, none of the ideas are new. But McKeown has presented and combined them in a refreshing and compelling way to show how you can get into an effortless state and take effortless action to achieve effortless results. A nice read!

Learn principles (can be applied again and again) not just facts. Teach something to someone else - only way to truly understand and master something. Solve problems before they happen. I would re-read this and recommend it as a good life refresher. ( )

Turn tedious tasks into meaningful rituals. Bring joy to something you don’t enjoy doing. Each time you complain find something to be grateful about in the situation. Give yourself
permission to fail when you try something new. Take naps! Don’t try to power through, work for a set amount of time and then take a break. Aim for residual results, not linear results.

“Getting clear on what done looks like doesn’t just help you finish, it helps you get started.”

“How many of us put up with problems, big and small, for so much longer than we have to because on any given day it takes less time to manage a problem than to solve it?” ( )

I chose to read this self help book by Greg Mckeown because a number of reviews lured me in. I went into it with the expectation of learning more than I knew, although that doesn't mean I am good at getting all the essentials done in my life. In the end, this turned out to be largely commonsense, although commonsense presented well and in a simplified manner. It begins with an introduction named Not Everything Has to be so Hard, and the rest of the material is divided into three sections, the effortless state, effortless action and effortless results. McKeown illustrates his methods with real life examples from our contemporary world, such as from those that have done well, the military and successful sports people. I can see many people finding this helpful to get what needs to be done in their lives, its just that for me, I wanted and expected more, something that surprised me more. Many thanks to the publisher for an ARC.
