“Marc Lesser dives into one of the most pervasive and persistent difficulties of our time — overwhelming busyness — with courage, deep practical know-how, profound spiritual understanding, and kindness....Less goes way beyond most self-help books — yet stays within everyone’s reach. Quite amazing.”
— James Flaherty, founder of New Ventures West Integral Coaching and author of Coaching: Evoking Excellence in Others
“This valuable work is so loaded with practical, applicable insights and suggestions to simplify work and daily existence that after reading it I felt that I should be studying at Marc’s feet....Give your daily life and work a spring cleaning by following the practices and path suggested in this book.”

“This Buddhist teacher-cum-lifestyle coach has come up with a very practical life plan.”
— Mandala magazine
“Less is more, as the old saying goes. Author Marc Lesser takes this to heart in his new book, Less: Accomplishing More by Doing Less. 'Too often we mistakenly believe that doing less makes us lazy and results in a lack of productivity,' Lesser writes. What it really does, he argues, is make us better appreciate the things we actually do get done. The author offers a 'Less Manifesto' aimed at getting more of those kinds of things you can’t put your hands on: patience, love, kindness, generosity, and quiet self-reflection.”
— Body + Soul magazine

Turning off my email new message reminder was the best thing I've ever done. I'm getting more accomplished because I don't see the little reminder in the corner of my screen every time a new message pops up so I don't check my mail immediately.
The two matrices mentioned in the book help to get your work aligned with your goals. The system is flexible and can be used in conjunction with things from some of the other productivity gurus.
The author has lots of other tidbits and useful information on his website and through his blog [...].
