Effortless: Make It Easier to Do What Matters Most Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Brought to you by Penguin.
From the internationally best-selling author of Essentialism comes a guide to making the most important tasks effortless.
The intricacy of modern life has created a false dichotomy between things that are 'hard and important' and those that are 'easy and trivial'. Everything has become so much harder than it ought to be. But, Greg McKeown, best-selling author of Essentialism, says, there is a third alternative. In Effortless, he offers practical strategies for making the most vital tasks the easiest ones. Honed over the better part of a decade, these strategies include:
- Asking 'What Step Can I Remove?' (accomplish more in fewer steps)
- Having the Courage to Be Rubbish (prioritise progress over perfection)
- Deciding What 'Done' Looks Like (don't keep running after you pass the finish line)
McKeown's philosophy of essentialism has helped thousands to eliminate nonessential activities and focus on the few that really matter. Working out what is essential is the first step - making these tasks effortless is the next. Effortless will show you how.

This book ia good - but if you haven't read Essentialism - go read that!
As with Essentialism, Greg displays great humility and vulnerability in sharing deep, personal experiences that will resonate with readers. He explains how tough & challenging situations can be substituted, with the right mindset & approach, with enjoyable & successful outcomes. Most importantly, Greg emphasizes time and again that achieving Effortless results does not equal taking shortcuts, rather a scientific approach to curbing distractions, focusing on efficiency & effectiveness, and a positive outlook to life's situations thrown at us. Greatly loved the read and look forward to another book by Greg
I would recommend reading these books in order and next to each other as the learning, retention, and application can be easily doubled by combining the practical aspects of Essentialism & Effortless action!

"In order to succeed at something, you have to get it done". Yes... No Sh..t Sherlock.
A few good things but this read as something written in haste with no other plan than to fill in spaces. Or the plan has been written at the end and the content has been forced into it. A bit ironic for a book that pretends to show you how to simplify and clarify. There is no method.
A good point for mentioning Eckhart Tolle. If you want to simplify, start with what is in your head and Tolle ( The Power of Now) is just doing that brilliantly. I agree.
In a world where we are often overwhelmed, stressed and seem to rush from place to place, where we are expected to worship the “hustle culture”. In “Essentialism” Greg explains how you can do more, by doing less.
For example, have you ever been to a meeting that was a total waste of time, but somebody who didn’t go asks you, “so what happened?’ And you explain the meeting in 30 seconds. That person is an Essentialist.
In “Effortless” Greg carries on the same theme. I should point out, while this is “part 2” there is no duplication and in fact this is just a well researched. Each chapters has a moral to the story and Greg walks you through a metaphor, in his storytelling. The book is easy to read, with a shed load of “mike drop” moments.
