Reading is a passion of mine. To sit down with a book, a cup of hot, steeping tea, my favorite blanket (yes, I actually have my own personal “blankey” that I sleep with every night), and a scented soy candle burning in the background, is an indulgence of mine. One that’s as delicious as sipping a glass of fine red wine.
Unfortunately, pampering myself in that way is not something I get to frequently partake in — at least not the complete ambience part of it. Instead, (being the busy mama to my curious 13-month old) reading has become more of a binge-when-I-get-a-free-moment kind of thing.
So, when I just *happened* to stumble upon Brian Johnson’s website — www.PhilosophersNotes.com — a few weeks back, I was completely intrigued by his slogan which promised to deliver: “The ultimate personal growth tool. Giving you more wisdom in less time.”
I watched his video, quickly perused the website, and entered my email address into the signup box to receive “3 Free Notes” — “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey, “Ask and It is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks, and “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz.
Having read all but “The Four Agreements” I chose to start there… And WOW! Was I impressed! Not only with the wisdom Ruiz bestow’s upon his readers, but with the way the Philosophers Notes comprehensively distills and warmly communicates the essential teachings and “BIG Ideas” into a condensed, convenient, 6-page PDF and bonus 20-minute downloadable MP3 that allows me the option to listen to the Note whenever I’m washing dishes while the little one plays or, plugged-in in the car.

Another cool plus is that reading/listening to the Notes gives me the option to prioritize my “must read next” list and decide which book most deserves my attention — which just so happens to be “Mindset: How We Can Learn to Fulfill Our Potential” by Carol Dweck. (I can’t wait to dive into it based off the Notes I read!)
Best of All…
Brian offers potential members a “Pick Your Price” payment method. So, if cash is tight you have the option of gaining access to the Philosophers Notes for a price that’s more congruent with your budget. Better yet, if cash is really tight, you can also apply to receive a scholarship.
As Brian says:
“…We all want to change the world. And we think the best way to do that is to inspire and empower as many people as we can to get their wisdom on, live their highest truths, and give their greatest gifts in greatest service to the world.”
Amen to that!
