My post is a little bit different this time... I'd like to tell you about an app I found that has been so helpful. Perhaps you'll find it useful, as well.
Like most people, my days are full of activity and it's not always easy to squeeze in personal growth.
Enter the Blinkist app.
Rather than trying to describe it myself, here's a brief description from their marketing:
"Where do the world's smartest people get their ideas? From great books! Blinkist transforms the key insights of 3,000+ best-selling non-fiction books into pwerful packs you can read OR LISTEN TO (emphasis mine) in just 15 minutes."

This app has been a great tool because it pulls key concepts of books, summarizes and narrates them to me while I drive. On a one-hour drive in the car, I can easily listen to key-point summaries of three books. Incredibly efficient!
So check out the Blinkest app and see if it's something that you might find useful, as well. I am not being compensated in any way for sharing this app--I just really find it helpful, and hope you will, too.
