“A man of sedentary occupation goes for a very long walk on Easter Monday, and in the evening is so exhausted that he can scarcely eat. He wakes up to the inefficiency of his body, caused by his neglect of it, and he is so shocked that he determines on remedial measures. Either he will walk to the office, or he will play golf, or he will execute the post-shaving exercises. But let the same man after a prolonged sedentary course of newspapers, magazines, and novels, take his mind out for a stiff climb among the rocks of a scientific, philosophic, or artistic subject. What will he do? Will he stay out all day, and return in the evening too tired even to read his paper? Not he. It is ten to one that, finding himself puffing for breath after a quarter of an hour, he won't even persist till he gets his second wind, but will come back at once. Will he remark with genuine concern that his mind is sadly out of condition and that he really must do something to get it into order? Not he. It is a hundred to one that he will tranquilly accept the status quo, without shame and without very poignant regret. Do I make my meaning clear?” Mental efficiency is an important and ACQUIRED state of mind. It is a strength that must be and can only be developed from within. Mental Efficiency and Other Hints to Men and Women is nothing less than time honored “standard procedure” necessary to develop that strength and begin to make true and lasting positive changes in your life.
Packed with tips, techniques and secrets, this is the book, written one hundred years ago by bestselling author Arnold Bennett, that will teach you how to increase your mental efficiency by leaps and bounds and succeed beyond your wildest dreams.
You will learn:
How to develop the self-discipline you need to achieve your goals How to prioritize and organize your schedule to maximize the most of everyday How to articulate your individuality and make a positive impression on others How to cultivate “the greatest of human qualities” How to forget the past and live in the now How to “settle down” without “settling” – marriage as an all-empowering ‘survival unit’ How reading quality books can dramatically improve your life – the “philosophy” of book buying And much, much more
In this light-hearted yet thought-provoking collection of articles, Bennett offers his thoughts on exercising your mind, organizing your life, marriage, books and happiness, and other pocket philosophies. The book stands the test of time, and much is still relevant and amusing – perhaps even more so, with nearly 100 years of hindsight, than when it was originally written. In this wonderful collection of articles, Arnold Bennett provides his thoughts on expanding and strengthening the mind, organizing your life, improving your marriage, on books, and on finding happiness!
