As high achievers, we’ve been conditioned to believe that the path to success is paved with relentless work. If we aren’t perpetually exhausted, we’re not doing enough in an endless loop of “Zoom, eat, sleep, repeat.” “Getting ahead doesn’t have to be as hard,” says McKeown, “If we set a sustainable pace, remove unnecessary steps, turn tedious tasks into enjoyable rituals and solve problems before they arise.” The effortless way is not the lazy way. It is the smart way. It may even be the only way.
