In this episode I'll give a summary, some highlights and exceprts from the book Leading at the Speed of Growth by Katherine Catlin

Jul 26, 2015

What do I cover in this episode of the podcast?

  • The main gist of the book
  • An overview of the four main parts of the book
  • Quotes and stories from the book
  • At the end I’ll do a kind of oral meditation for you, contrasting an essentialist and a nonessentialist. I imagine that if you like this, you might come back to this part of the podcast and relisten to it a few times.

Essentialism is one of those books that I come back to and re-read a few times a year. And the reason I say I “re-read it”, is because this book is more like a meditation. In this episode I’ll gives highlights, takeaways and read some quotes from Essentialism.

In this week's On Books I'll dive into Essentialism by Greg McKeown.

In Mating in Captivity, Esther Perel asks the question, “How can you want, what you already have?” 

Love is about having; desire is about wanting. When you have too much desire you’re insecure and anxious. On the other hand, when you have too much love you’re too comfortable, you have too much security, and you feel trapped.

The thesis of Mating in Captivity is that if you’d like to create passionate, long-lasting relationship you’ll need find a balance between your love and your desire. Perel gives her advice and tactics on how to find this balance.
