Think: Mini-CliffsNotes for Self-Development Books! :)
The easiest way to describe PhilosophersNotes: they’re kinda like mini-CliffsNotes for self-development books or “Concentrated wisdom for your hero’s journey.”
Have you noticed that in any given book, there are usually 5-20 REALLY “Big Ideas”—those life-changing gems that really make an impact in your life?!? (... those pages are usually all marked up, underlined, starred, highlighted and all that goodness in my books! ☺)
Well, what I’ve done is opened up my favorite books, gone straight to those pages with the BIG IDEAS and created “PhilosophersNotes” that quickly give you the inspiring gems along with my thoughts on how these ideas have impacted my life and how they can impact yours.

"Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them in: but as a rule the purchase of books is mistaken for the appropriation of their contents." ~ Arthur Schopenhauer
In about 20 minutes a week, we'll get you thru the Big Ideas of 50 of the best self-development books ever written—you'll get a 6-page PDF and ~20-minute MP3 for each title so you can decide if you’d prefer to read over a cup of tea or listen on your way to work, on a hike, at the gym, doing errands or whatever’s best for you!
It's All About the Big Ideas We Can Apply NOW!
“If I read a book that cost me $20 and I get one good idea, I’ve gotten one of the greatest bargains of all time.” ~ Tom Peters
As we explore these great books, we WON’T get stuck in just the dry intellectual stuff.
In my view, if we can’t discover a truly life-changing insight in each of these books (we’ll shoot for many more than just one!), then we’ve wasted our time.
We’ll gain mastery in spiritual economics (we MUST learn how to integrate our spirituality/self-actualizing with our bank accounts, no?), health and fitness (how can we possibly live at our highest potential if we have a hard time getting out of bed?), and relationship skills (love, love, love!!). We’ll learn a bunch of ways to discover our purpose/dharma, how to follow our bliss, how to feel the fear… and do it anyway and how to live the 7 habits of highly effective people. And, we’ll study the science of getting rich and the magic of thinking big. And all kinds of other goodness.
I’ll be the guy sharing the Big Ideas and waving the pom-poms. Life’s WAY too short to get stuck and part of my job will be to help you translate this wisdom into ACTION in YOUR life.
Let's Get This Party Started! :)
"The greatest stock market you can invest in is yourself.
Finding this truth is better than finding a gold mine."
~ Byron Katie from Loving What Is
In sum: I hope to share my PhilosophersNotes with you. I think you''ll dig 'em. And I have a strong feeling that together we'll be able to continue to transform our lives through the incredible wisdom of these great books.
Yours in growth, creativity, service and smiles,
