On today’s episode, Greg McKeown talks about the paradox of success where ironically, success itself can become a catalyst for failure. He points out that since success comes with new options and opportunities, you’re bound to find yourself stretched too thin, be it at work or at home. Greg coins this as the undisciplined pursuit of more when the non-essential takes the place of what’s truly essential. 

You have to become successful at success. Remember, a trade-off exists everywhere. So you can either be pulled in a million directions or be focused on the few things that really matter. He highlights the powerful idea of searching for something significant and designing your life around that essential few or those that truly matter.
