I thought I would start sharing some books that have been especially inspiring to me on the blog and realized that some of the MOST inspiring information has come from an AMAZING guy who has taken the most AMAZING books and come up with an AMAZING way to share the info.
So,If you have never heard of Philosophers Notes http://philosophersnotes.com/why or Brian Johnson then, please, make a cup of tea, take a seat and check out todays blog. You will be very glad you did.
Brian Johnson is the master mind of the Philosophers Notes, which are essentially the Cliff Notes of personal growth books. He shares these in Mp3 files that also have an accompanying PDF file that highlight the “Big Ideas” and “Quotes” from the books for those of us, like me, who need a visual, a place to write thoughts and highlight.
I have a ritual now that I nearly always start my day off with one of the Philosophers Notes as I get ready for my day or as I go for a walk with my iPod. It really sets the tone of my day and always leaves me excited! Each Mp3 is only about 20 minutes long but is JAMMED packed with one “AH HA” after the next! Brian has a fun, laid back style and a great sense of humor that makes it all the more fun to listen to the notes.
The “Notes” are a collection of over 100 Mp3 files with some of the most inspirational books around! A few of my favorite are Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman, The Pursuit of Perfect by Tal Ben-Shahar, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience by Mihaly Csikzentmihalyi, Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl and The Courage to Create by Rollo May... Really, there’s not one that isn’t my favorite!
Brian also does mini versions of the Mp3’s on Youtube. Here are a few of my favorites!
Brian, along with his equally amazing wife Alexandra, have created en*theos academy http://entheosAcademy.com/#2 that is delivering awesome online courses from the top leaders in nutrition, relationships, positive psychology and more!
