Essentialism is the book I most recommend to my corporate clients (I’m a Performance Psychologist based in Australia), and the method has helped me to personally reshape my life. The podcast has been a great initiative and continues Greg’s high quality work. Strongly recommend to anyone who...Read full review »

I just listened to the Gretchen Rubin episode and it’s fantastic. Tons of useful information crammed into a short entertaining conversation. I loved learning about Gretchen’s writing process and how she works as well as hearing her talk about the insights she’s gained. So good!

Excellent, insightful content, true to the book. I commend Greg for the lack of overt or covert commercialism; I need not wade through seven minutes of ads to get to the subject matter. His message- doing what is essential, based on one’s own sense of purpose- is more important than ever, in the...Read full review »

I loved the book Essentialism and this podcast lives up to the same standard! It is inspiring and continues to drive the “essentialist way of life” home.

Found out about you through the millennial minimalists. Listened to your audiobook essentialism. Changed my life. I’m a wife, mom to two girls, and a pediatric RN on a local oncology floor. My attention, time management, compassion, and mindfulness toward running my house with husband, kids,...Read full review »

I am re-reading Essentialism after a couple of years, and it is still excellent. I appreciate this podcast because it brings in so many perspectives from other thinkers on this topic. Excited for Greg’s next book, and I can hear hints of his latest thinking in these discussions!

The book changed my life. After two painful moves because of the amount of stuff we had accumulated, then a forced downsizing because my husband became very ill, I read the book “Essentialism.” (I actually read it twice within the same month. It was that good.) When my husband began to heal, and...Read full review »

Love the weekly podcast to reinforce the importance of essentialism. I enjoy the discussions with people dealing with essentialism in their real-life situations as well as the great guests.
LMT-345 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/20
The most value part of this podcast is that there’s a lot of different stories involving essencialsm (and also non essencialism) out there and, somehow, all the stories have something in common with mine, showing that is possible to learn more and live better. Besides being an excellent author,...Read full review »

I look forward to my weekly dose of essentialism in the form of this podcast. In addition to the book, the podcast helps me apply essentialism principles in my everyday life. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to lead an intentional, purpose-driven life.
Travelgirl879 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/11/20
I read the book twice the first month I bought it a few years back. Then I made an entire outline of notes based on the book. This podcast is such a wonderful supplement to the book. Greg does an excellent job of listening, unpacking and getting into depth with both his advice and his...Read full review »

Thank you for reminding me how important is to find and keep essentials in life! I am honoured to have the ability to listen to this podcast.

Learning Wednesday conversations are even better with key insights from 3 great sources: 1) essentialism book and 2) weekly essentialism podcast with Greg McKeown and 3) weekly one minute newsletter. It is now the priority to eliminate the non-essential to give space for the essential.
30MinutesA_Day via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/20
The approach in the podcast almost feels like therapy. Greg’s interview style with all his guests allows you to put yourself in their shoes and consider how you can improve on doing what’s essential in life. It is a valuable, weekly reminder to chase only what is the most important to you.
acott21 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/04/20
There are so many podcasts to choose from, but Greg’s should be on your curated list of quality content. He brings you what is truly essential, concepts that you can implement right now for a more fulfilling life. Highly recommend.
Tyinaustin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/28/20
The only book and the author I keep coming back among 100 of management related books. His simple approach in problem solving and essential thinking is gold! Whenever I have struggle with my business I keep coming back to him and gain some clarity to make next breakthrough happen.
LUTHORCORP via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/27/20
Greg’s extraordinary book, Essentialism, and this podcast provide all of the tools you need to make every day of your life more meaningful. Start your journey as an Essentialist! Focus on the few things that really matter — what’s essential. Eliminate everything else.
CADS67 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/24/20
I could probably keep on writing to express how valuable this podcast is. I read the Essentialism book several times now and it probably has had the most (positive) effect on me a book has ever had. In combination with this beautiful podcast it is shifting my mindset to understanding what is...Read full review »

I read Greg’s book a few years ago and knew I’d found something I could work with. Some time later I eventually found, and started listening to, the podcasts and, wow, these made another level of difference to me again! Greg’s skills and manner are remarkable. He finds the perfect way to let the...Read full review »

Essentialism is applicable to every aspect of life whether it be work, family, social, or yourself. It’s a mindset that needs to be shared with everyone and this podcast covers all the areas!
PSD9283 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/21/20
Especially the Essential Interventions are helping me a lot putting Essentialism into practice.
luaö via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 09/19/20
These podcast have been great for creating family discussions, thank you Greg and all of your guests.
DrDanGG via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/17/20
Simply the most interesting, informative and actionable discussions available in podcast form.
jf4lc0n via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/16/20
Greg McKeown does what few experts have the courage and compassion to do: he teaches his essential general principles by doing specific “interventions.” The messy intersection of real life and first principles reveals true value.
HEBud1957 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/07/20
Practical inspirational interviews with bright individuals. Greg is the ultimate communicator and has a unique ability to drive a very intelligent conversation with his guests .
NO MBA via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/30/20
Greg McKeown is one of the best interviewers I’ve ever listened to. He picks fascinating guests and asks peculiar, insightful questions that generate amazing discussions. You will enjoy!

Greg is one of the truly brilliant minds of our time. If the world could collectively apply this guidance I’m convinced we would increase both productivity and life fulfillment, the holy grail of mortality.
andybcs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/15/20
Essentialism is dynamic and evolving. The interviews aren’t the standard tell me about your book. Authors and others alike the interviews are great. The interview with BJ Bogg magnificently brought out the best aspects of both author’s books and how Tiny Habits and Essentialism can weave...Read full review »

Think the world of Greg. His book Essentialism is a game changer and I’m so pumped he’s doing this podcast!

UPDATE: I’ve been listening for a few weeks now and am enjoying it. I don’t know every guest, but I do appreciate how he will talk to both “normal” people and the rich and famous. Still 5 stars! Greg McKeown’s philosophy is necessary for anyone who feels like they’ve hit a wall or are doing more...Read full review »

I have tried to listen to an episode with David Allen. It was a very random and unstructured conversation where I could not get anything valuable out of it. The sound quality was not good either.
podcast_lover_2020 via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 07/28/20
Greg McKeown is such a good interviewer. He’s a good listener, good at restating, great questions, so meaningful. Love the podcast. ❤️
Creating Jenny via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/20
I loved this podcast so much I went out and bought his book then went to Patreon! Greg asks his guests incredibly thought-provoking questions that not only provide you, as the listener, with great knowledge and wisdom, but they as provoke reflection within oneself. My only regret is finding the...Read full review »

This podcast is great 👍. Keep going!
LauraChamonix via Apple Podcasts · France · 07/24/20
I love the book, but this podcast is too long and after 20 minutes the “interviews” lose track and the focus on “what are we talking about?”.
marciocantelli via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/23/20
Every podcast episode I’d listened to was inspiring and to the point. It motivated me to look at things I’m doing differently and reinvent my relationship with doing and busyness. I love the idea of doing less but better. Looking forward to every new episode
Amazinglifeforever via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/22/20
It was published before everyone went woke, and it’s excellent. This podcast, however, not so much. Same predictable guests saying the same predictable things. A shame really as the book changed my life.
Rrtuuyt via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/21/20
This podcast is not just inspiring and educational, it also encourages us to on new ways to apply essentialism to the very areas of our lives that matter most.

Update 7/17/2020: The essentialist intervention with Emily was the first episode I loved! Finally, essentialism for the everyday person. Thank you for including this episode.
