Get Your Resolutions Back on Track with Summed Up

With the end of January comes the end of any pretense that New Years resolutions will actually be kept. At least, that’s what usually happens. But this year Scribd’s on hand to offer some support. You might’ve been a little overambitious with your goals (how many books was it that you were going to read a month?), but there’s no reason to give up your dream of becoming better-read, healthier, or more financially secure as February looms. 

Enter Summed Up: summaries of those books you’ve been meaning to read, but haven’t had a chance to get to. Scored tickets to Hamilton? Make sure you’re ready to focus on the amazing show (and not scrambling to keep up) by catching up on Ron Chernow's biography. Had big goals to start saving, and fell short? The salient points of Total Money Makeover are waiting to help you get back on track. Been meaning to get things organized, but just can’t seem to make it happen? A summary of Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up will get you there faster. Having trouble keeping to the strict diet you planned? Michael Pollan’s key takeaways from In Defense of Food will help you focus on the big picture (and cut yourself a little slack). 

Setting goals is great, and keeping them is even better. But finding efficient ways to meet your goals without sacrificing time from your busy life? We think that’s the best resolution of all.
