You're probably not a fan of self-help books based on cliche and silly advice. Like, how you can be happy if you lose your cat. Or how you can sip your favourite cocktail on a private beach in just three easy steps. The truth is, many non-fiction books are like this. But some go beyond this stereotype and leave you with habits that can radically improve your wellbeing. To explore these books in a unique way, read on.
A Unique Approach to Learning
You know the feeling when you're being given advice, when you're made to feel like there's something wrong with you that needs to be changed? There's this sense that there's an almighty teacher telling you what to do. But as opposed to instruction, we tend to learn best through example and inspiration.
On Growth Notes, by uncovering how one person applies the actionable suggestions from a book as they narrate their journey towards greater wellbeing and concious living, you'll feel connected and draw ideas from your own experience at the same time. By being personal, learning on the platform is joyful, relatable, and delicate.
How Does it All Work Together?
We live in a world that constantly sells us the promise of more. But our focus and efforts are best spent on less. With that, all the books added to the library are alligned with living a more meaningful life. Meanwhile, each book on the platform is reviewed in a visually engaging 8-10 page PDF, alongside an insightful 10 mins audio commentary.
"The true way lies not in a process of accumulation…but rather in elimination" - John Little, The Warrior Within.
Inspired by nature, each Growth Note begins with a section, titled 'Trim Weeds' - where the most crucial habits to avoid, based on a book's wisdom, are unearthed. Instead of focusing on adding, the primary focus is on finding and removing what's unhelpful via negativa1. The second section named 'Plant Seeds' takes you to an exploration of just a few, key positive habits worth adding for daily fulfillment.
