Monthly interactive EBBC (Entrepreneurial Business Book Club) session in Munich. This one centered around "Essentialism" by Greg McKeown.

Expect an interesting, introspective and practical session! We activate (y)our Knowledge!

Have you ever found yourself struggling with information overload?
Have you ever felt both overworked and underutilised?
Do you ever feel busy but not productive?

If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is to become an Essentialist.

In Essentialism, Greg McKeown shows you how to achieve what he calls the disciplined pursuit of less. Being an Essentialist is about a disciplined way of thinking.

It means challenging the core assumption of ‘We can have it all’ and ‘I have to do everything’ and replacing it with the pursuit of ‘the right thing, in the right way, at the right time'.

By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter.

We encourage you to read the book (or a summary, youtube videos, podcasts, ...) beforehand. While it is not a requirement, it does make the sessions more interesting for you.

DISCLAIMER: Author of the book will not be present. This is by and for the EBBC community.
