New Book: How to Work on Oneself
Post from June 2, 2016 (↻ April 7, 2019), filed under Philosophy.
Doubt led me to explore ways to grow, doubt now led me to ask my editor three times whether or not to publish under a pseudonym: I sketched, in what resembles a fluffy essay, how to learn, how to grow, or—How to Work on Oneself.

How can we learn more effectively, how can we best work on ourselves, how do we grow? That is the subject of this brief book, this short sketch by philosopher and world traveler Jens Oliver Meiert. A light treatise on personal growth, he goes over 20 paths to get to know ourselves, for “we are okay as we are, but we can always improve.”
❧ I’m ambivalent about this piece, yet I intend to look ahead and forward to wrapping up the next “Little Book” for O’Reilly (to come out in September), and to finishing two more manuscripts. Thanks to everyone who’s supporting my work—at the moment I write more compulsively than anything.
