My first grade teacher, Mrs. Janet Oxenhandler, follows me on facebook and recently commented on a post I wrote about my upcoming hiking trip on the Appalachian Trail, “Do you ever just get tired and sit down?”

Great question Mrs. Oxenhandler! The simple answer is no. Taking breaks is not really my thing. Well, at least it hasn’t been a part of my life up to this point, but it’s definitely going to take center stage in the near future.

There is more to Evernote than meets the eye and that’s what I want to share with you today. If you are an Evernote newbie and would like a quick tutorial on how to get started, listen to this week’s episode and get ready to take notes!

In the eyes of David Allen there is a magic to getting things done, which is accomplished through relaxation. More specifically, stress-free productivity.
It seems counter intuitive. Think about it. When are you getting a lot done AND feeling completely relaxed at the same time?
I tend to associate relaxation with napping and productivity with working hard. So, where’s the overlap?
That’s the magic and art of GTD, David Allen’s system of Getting Things Done.

Minimalism, or doing less, has always made sense to me. However, the concept of “less but better” upgrades minimalism to an ideal that I have never heard described so well as Greg McKeown has done in his book, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less.

Over the last few years I have found many ways to cut things out of my life. I have quit jobs I hated, donated piles of clothes to charity, and even stripped my diet down to eating nothing but raw fruits and vegetables.
However, last week I read Essentialism and realized that I have missed the point of minimalism — or, really, I have not optimized what it means to intentionally do less in pursuit of better results.
And yes — this book is easily one of the best I have read in a long time — mostly because this is a timeless message that ALL of us need to hear and fully embrace. If your life, like mine, is need of an Essentialist overhaul, buy the book. You won’t regret it.
