After I profiled Essentialism, I sent the author, Greg McKeown, 5 short questions.
Affably, he was kind enough to respond to each of them.
Here is his shortest interview ever.
1. Coffee, or tea?
“Herbal tea. Never coffee or black tea.“
2. Appetizer, or dessert?
“Dessert as the appetizer. Start with the essential.”
3. Mountains, or beach?
4. Early-bird, or night owl?
“I like both because they are quiet times to think. But the output is much better in the early hours.“
5. One book you would recommend every 18-year-old read?
“Seneca’s ‘On the Shortness of Life.'”
