A Live Developer Journal

Essentialist Dev

My mission is to help you act on the things that matter to you.

I do this by creating customizable Action Plans, inspired by questions you ask me on Twitter.


The name "Essentialist Dev" is inspired by Greg McKeown's Book Essentialim: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less.

It's easy to get overwhelmed by how much there is to learn as a developer. This book helped me realise that we can choose to do anything, but not everything.

Only once you stop giving yourself permission to do it all, to stop saying yes to everyone, can you make your highest contribution to the things that really matter. - Greg McKeown
