Essentialism is more than a time management strategy or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline to discern what is absolutely essential and then eliminate all that is not so that we can make the greatest possible contribution to the things that really matter. By forcing ourselves to apply more selective criteria for what is Essential, the disciplined search for less allows us to regain control of our own decisions about where to spend our precious time and energy, rather than giving others implicit permission to choose for us.

Essentialism is not just another thing, it is a completely new way of doing everything. It is about doing less, but better, in all areas of our lives. Essentialism is a movement whose time has come.

What Is the Core Logic of an Essentialist?
Essentialism is not a way of doing one more thing; it’s a different way of doing everything. It is a way of thinking. But internalizing this way of thinking is not a neutral challenge. This is because certain ideas, and the people who sell those ideas, constantly push us toward the logic of nonessentialism. There are three chapters in this part of the book. Each takes a fallacy of nonessentialism and replaces it with a truth of essentialism. There are three deeply ingrained assumptions that we must conquer in order to live the essentialist way: “I have to do it,” “Everything is important,” and “I can do both.” Like mythological mermaids, these assumptions are as dangerous as they are seductive.
They attract us and drown us in shallow waters. Embracing the essence of essentialism requires that we replace these false assumptions with three fundamental truths: “I choose to do it,” “Only a few things really matter,” and “I can do anything, but not everything.” These simple truths awaken us from our nonessential stupor. They free us to pursue what really matters. They allow us to live at our highest level of contribution. As we get rid of the nonsense of nonessentialism and replace it with the central logic of essentialism, the path of essentialism becomes natural and instinctive.
