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 Power of Now in less than 15 mins and these are some of the key pieces of information I took away.
Emphasis on living in the present moment as a way to avoid most of the pain that we usually experience.
There are no advantages to worrying about the future or dwelling in the past, but there are many to living “in the now.”
Stop clinging to the past and stop fearing the future, and you’ll see how dramatically your life will improve.
The ego is a destructive part of the human mind. It wants to be the most important part of you and knows no limits, so if you let it gain control, it will bring you much suffering.
By shifting our focus from the mind to the body.Your body knows what’s best for you. By listening to your body, you can get a very clear sense of what is important in your life.
Do not focus on the past or the future! Live in the present and try to separate yourself from the over-thinking mind. Following this method will reduce your suffering and improve your life.
The “ego” is a part of your mind that stops you from being happy.
If you want a richer and almost painless life, separate yourself from your mind and focus on your body.
