On Being an Essentialist




You’re dragged into playing basketball so you can be a good sport and hang with your friends. You recently read the book Essentialism by Greg Mckeown and you feel like a cheat because you’re not being an essentialist. What do you do? Instead of pouting or even participating in basketball, what can you do that would make the experience enjoyable? Maybe find some pleasure in cheering really loudly. Maybe find some pleasure in making intentional small talk with the other people on the bench. Maybe just step to the side and read a book on your phone. Whatever it is, if you don’t like playing basketball, don’t play basketball.
