What is Blinkist?
Blinkist is a way to consume good quality information fast.
Blinkist has done all the hard work for you. They’ve read the books and have made a summary for you with the key pieces of information. There's so much content out there. How can you read it all? You can’t!! But with Blinkist you'll be making the best use of your time.
I read The Happiness Project in less than 15 mins and these are some of the key pieces of information I took away.
What you do every day matters more than what you do once in a while
You can’t change your partner; you can only work on yourself
There was no such thing as love, but rather only proofs of love
When we work, we maintain social ties and feel valued. The feeling of growth we get from working is an inexhaustible source of self-confidence and recognition
If your job happens to be your favourite thing to do, it can be a great source of happiness
Challenges positively stimulate our brains and dealing with new situations often brings about unexpected satisfaction.
It’s the little moments of success that make us happiest
Happiness is different for everybody. And we’re all capable of boosting our happiness if we recognise what makes us happy and take concrete steps to make those things happen.
