As I have subscribed to Blinkist many months ago and have been a fervent follower of their daily newsletter aswell as of all their suggested readings since “Day One”, I was pleased to see that they lately launched the concept of podcast episodes on their websites (available for free here). The first theme is about “simplifying” your life.
As they put it:
“Simplify is for anybody who’s taken a close look at their habits, their happiness, their relationships, or their health and thought “There’s got to be a better way to do this.””
In the following 5 episodes, productivity / happiness / specialists and best-seller writers talk about what they know best:
5 – You Have More Time Than You Think, by Laura Vanderkam (author of several time management and productivity books like What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think, and All the Money in the World: What the Happiest People Know About Wealth. She also blogs daily about Time Management, Life, Careers & Familyat at LauraVanderkam.com).
4 – The Salad is the Main Meal, by Dr. Joel Fuhrman (Family Physician, Nutrition Researcher, New York Times Best-Selling Author of Eat to Live, he is the advocator of what he calls a micronutrient-rich diet).
3 – Your Brain is Not a Hard Drive, by David Allen (widely recognized as the world’s leading expert on personal and organizational productivity, he is the creator of the time management method known as “Getting Things Done“, a total work-life management system that transforms overwhelm into an integrated system of stress-free productivity).
2 – You Do You, by Gretchen Rubin (author of the New York Times bestsellers Better Than Before, Happier at Home, and my one of personal favourites, The Happiness Project, she reports on her daily blog her adventures in pursuit of habits and happiness).
1 – Keep Not Breaking Up, by Dan Savage (media pundit, journalist, activist for the LGBT community and author of Savage Love, an internationally syndicated relationship and sex advice column appearing in several dozen newspapers around the world.
