Guidelines is a collection of insights and carefully considered lessons that respect your time. Nothing is superfluous, and every insight is valuable. There are a lot of books about productivity, leadership, and general self-improvement I might recommend — but if I had to advocate for just one, it would be Paul's Guidelines.

If you love reading self-help books, improving yourself and learning more... If you’re interested in business, productivity, entrepreneurship, health and getting more out of life… And if you want to become the best possible version of yourself, then read on and learn why Guidelines should be the next ebook on your digital shelf.

Do you enjoy reading but struggle to find the time to pick up a book?

ipad book newBooks are great aren't they? So full of wisdom and useful ideas, reading is a great way to improve yourself. The only issue is finding enough time to sit down and actually read. On top of that, there are so many great books to choose from, we often end up with more books to read than hours in the day...

Do you like the advice you read but then forget to take action?

This is another common problem - we get so caught up trying to read more and more, it’s easy to lose sight of the purpose of reading which is to learn new things. Taking action after reading a book isn’t always easy, which is why I’ve written a number of book summaries to help people quickly remind themselves of the content and take action on the most important ideas.

If you like reading self-help books, then you'll love my new ebook...

Guidelines: The best advice from 43 best-selling books

Guidelines is the ultimate book summary. Available as a 105-page ebook and 2.5 hour audio book. Guidelines lists 41 rules (or guidelines) that you should follow to improve your productivity, become a better leader, do better in business, improve your health, succeed in life and become a happier person. Guidelines digests the best points from over 43 best-selling books like The 4-Hour Work Week, The Miracle Morning and The Obstacle is the Way into 31 specific and actionable guidelines.

Here’s what you’ll get out of reading Guidelines:Book and coffee

  • Learn the 41 proven action steps to help you do better work (backed by over 38 best-selling authors).
  • Most of the self-help advice you hear is too general and fluffy. Learn the most common tips that dozens of authors recommend.
  • Give me 2.5 hours and I’ll summarise the main lessons from over 43 best-selling books (better than taking years to read them all individually).
  • If you want to read and learn more, but don’t have time, this is the ultimate book summary for you.

What’s the alternative? At least $300+ and years of reading...

The books mentioned in Guidelines are brilliant and I absolutely recommend you read them… eventually. But, reading these 33 books would could you at least $300+ to purchase (even more if you buy the physical versions) and would take literally years to get through. You don’t have time for that... Self-help books Instead, you can spend a fraction of that on Guidelines today and quickly digest the most actionable and useful advice in 115 minutes. Then you can go back and read the books that interest you the most. I’ve even linked to them in the ebook so you can go and purchase them as you see fit.

Who am I?

My name is Paul Minors. I am a productivity blogger and coach. I love reading and you may have already seen that I have a number of book summaries already available for download. These summaries are a great way you can quickly remind yourself about important ideas and action steps. For me, reading is one of the best ways I can improve myself, learn new things and become a better person. I've thoroughly enjoyed curating the content I've read over the years and distilling everything into Guidelines.

I finished reading “Guidelines” over the weekend and loved it. Lots of good stuff in there. After reading so much stuff you really start to see common themes and Paul did a great job of listing some big takeaways and action points. Thanks for making this resource!
