It's not about choosing a word to guide your life, it is about uncovering that word. And the moment you do, you will feel the power of that word. The authors walk you through a simple process to uncover that word by examining your past successes and struggles, and your future hopes, dreams and concerns.
Once you have that word you'll find you can narrow your focus and simplify just about everything in your life and work.
My biggest take-aways:
1. Buzy-ness is a disease that is robbing us of our life
2. Buzy-ness throws us into survival mode and leaves no time for mission and meaning
3. Buzy-ness makes us stop caring about the things we actually care about
4. The key to eliminating buzy-ness is a narrowing of focus and a philosophy of simplicity
If there is a downside to this book, it spends a LOT of time at the end reporting on how different groups used this technique. For me, these went on a bit long.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book...and in fact, I have recommended it.
