 Notes on Essentialism | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:12:10

Happy First Day of Spring and Happy Full Moon. The beginning of Spring and the full moon signifies a time for change, a restart, a realignment, a time to shed old skin, a time to plant new seeds. In Episode 4, I wanted to share some notes from Essentialism that are relevant to this topic of getting clear about your purpose and conserving your energy for what’s most essential to you. These notes come from a book I read called Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown. Essentialism is defined as “making the wisest possible investment of your time and energy in order to operate at your highest point of contribution by doing only what is essential.” This comes down to honoring your truth and being clear about your intentions, setting boundaries and being aware of your deal breakers to ensure you’re aligned with your purpose. To gain more clarity on your purpose, ask yourself the following questions: What do I feel deeply inspired by? What am I particularly talented at? If I could be truly excellent at one thing, what would it be? I talk about these things and my top takeaways from reading the book. I hope they’re helpful for you as you make room for new changes and blessings with the start of a new season. Learn more at
