To conclude my series of podcast episodes about the importance
of “Focusing”, I was honored to
interview Greg McKeown, author of
the New York Times Best Seller
Book – Essentialism: the
Disciplined Pursuit of Less.
Greg has taught at companies that include
Apple, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Salesforce, and
