Sources of Insight, a blog dedicated to personal effectiveness, offers two free ebooks of interest to home business entrepreneurs:
1) You 2.0, a free e-book designed to help readers find their purpose and develop the foundation to be at one’s best in any situation
2) The Zen of Results, which addresses the question “How do you do less, but accomplish more? ” With its focus on personal effectiveness and personal development, Sources of Insight is the go-to source for people who value profound knowledge for the mind, the body, emotions, careers, finances, relationships and fun.
J.D. Meier of Sources of Insight explains what readers will learn from the two free ebooks:
You 2.0 cuts to the chase to help readers quickly find their purpose — their why, their how, their values, their strengths and their personal success patterns. Once these are mapped out, an individual has a firm foundation to be his or her best in any situation. By finding and living this process, individuals are able to lead a life by design, not by default. I call it ‘You 2.0′ because it’s about renewal and taking yourself to the next level.
The Zen of Results is about personal productivity. The approach in a nutshell is:
- Scannable outcomes to guide your activities and tasks.
- Life frame to organize and balance the important hot spots in your life.
- Monday Vision, Daily Outcomes, Friday Reflection to guide your week.
- Daily Outcomes to guide your day.
