719: #719: Walk & Talk with Greg McKeown — How to Find Your Purpose and Master Essentialism in 2024

Brought to you byAG1all-in-one nutritional supplement, Helix Sleeppremium mattresses, andMomentoushigh-quality supplements.

Greg McKeown (@GregoryMcKeown) is the author of two New York Times bestsellers Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, and Effortless: Make It Easier to Do What Matters Most. Together they have sold more than two million copies in 37 languages. He is also a speaker, host of The Greg McKeown Podcast and founder of The Essentialism Academy with students from 96 countries. More than 175,000 people have signed up to his 1-Minute Wednesday newsletter.

He is currently doing a doctorate at The University of Cambridge, and he is easily one of my favorite thinkers on all things related to effectiveness, efficiency, and—at the end of the day—quality of life.

Originally from London, England, Greg and his wife, Anna, are parents to four children.
