Essentialism 101:

1. Choice: Remember you always have a choice. Prioritize what truly matters. You can't do everything.

2. Discernment: Not all activities or opportunities are created equal. Focus on the vital few instead of the trivial many.

3. Trade-off: Embrace the reality of trade-offs. To gain on one end, you may have to give up on another.

4. Non-essentials: Learn to say "No" to the non-essentials. It's about making the wisest possible investment of your time and energy.

5. Clarity: Seek clarity. Clearly define your purpose, goals, and essential activities.

6. Routine: Create routines and systems that ensure you're always working towards your essential goals.

7. Play: Play stimulates creativity and innovation. It's not a frivolous activity but a crucial part of life and work.

8. Sleep: Prioritize rest. Good sleep enhances performance, mood, and health.

9. Simplicity: Strive for simplicity. It makes the journey towards essential goals smoother and less stressful.

10. Moment: Live in the moment. By being fully present, you can enjoy the journey and not just the destination.

These tips are from the book "Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less" by Greg McKeown, shared by Omar's Desk. Apply these principles to live a focused, meaningful, and productive life.

P.S: Remember, "If you don't prioritize your life, someone else will."
