Sources of Insight, a blog dedicated to helping individuals stand on the shoulders of giants by leveraging insight and action from the world's best books, people and quotes, announces the recent release of "You 2.0," a free e-book designed to help readers unleash versions of their best selves. 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.
"'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," says J.D. Meier of Sources of Insight.
