There are few more important tasks than developing our minds – that is, practising becoming a little less confused, anxious, unfocused, distracted and forgetful. For this challenge of self-development, we need a good self-help book. Unfortunately, our culture has been very suspicious of self-help books. Intellectually minded people often scorn the idea of them.
This book is intended to be the start of a better kind of self-help book. What constitutes a self-help book is very broad; at heart, it means any book that helps us to see our minds more clearly and thereby to improve our levels of self-knowledge, judgement and introspection. This book might become home to dreams or plans, to-do lists or meditations. It might be the platform from which ambitions can be worked out or emotions processed. It is hard to know ourselves without first writing down key bits of our minds. The self-help book deserves to be rediscovered as the most effective genre of literature we know. Here, you – who understand more about your needs than anyone else – are its author.
