The director from Little Big Shots sat me down with his British accent and said, “Mr. Harvey I’d like to tell you something… and you can tell me to f*ck off and I will...b ut you’re absolutely the busiest person I’ve ever met in my life and I’m concerned about you. I want you to read a book called Essentialism.”

You know what? This book along with my anniversary trip helped changed the whole way I think. The basics of essentialism is this:  

Everybody must do the things that are essential to your life to make you happy or successful. You must eliminate everything that doesn’t make you happy or don’t lead to your success. All day long people come up to me... asking me to do things to benefit them and I had to find a better way to operate my days. This was it. 

I got half way through this book and I knew this was something I had to share... I’ve shared with my entire staff and I want to share it with you! You can preview the book for free here!
