Learn from Blinkist’s bestselling books, expert-led guides, and curated reading lists to achieve any goal in 2023.

New Year is the time we look ahead to the next 12 months and think about who we want to become. For you, that might be a better friend, a better partner, a better boss, a better parent — or all of the above.

In fact, most New Year’s resolutions revolve around being a better person in some way. In the US, the top resolutions for 2022 ranged from exercising more and eating healthier to spending more time with family and friends and less time on social media.


For a goal to be successful, however, you need to have a plan, and that’s where Blinkist can help. Blinkist is an app that shares powerful ideas from nonfiction books in 15-minute explainers. There are 5,500 titles to explore across 27 categories including personal development, sex & relationships, and psychology.

No matter how you want to be better in 2023, Blinkist has the tools to help you do it.

“With Blinkist you can boost your knowledge and gain new perspectives so that you can be a better professional, a better partner, or a better you.”
–The United Nations

Here’s how you can use the app to become the best version of yourself possible in 2023.

Better Yourself in Just 15 Minutes

It’s no secret nonfiction books are home to life-changing advice. But most of us simply don’t have the time to sit down and read them.

To help, Blinkist’s team of expert researchers, writers, and editors read through a book and pull out the most important information into a bite-sized explainer you can get through in just 15 minutes.

You can choose from titles like Atomic Habits, The 5 Love Languages, and How to Win Friends and Influence People. And the library is always growing, too, as the team adds 70 new books each month.

“I read a lot of management, self-improvement, and entrepreneurial books through Blinkist because I can gain specific knowledge on my industry or on ways to improve myself.”
–Steven Renwick, CPO of Regis24

Work Towards Your Goals On the Go

All of Blinkist’s explainers are available to read and listen to, meaning you can fit self-development into pockets of time throughout your day. Read on your lunch break or before bed, or listen while traveling to work, at the gym, or running errands.


Explore Expertly Curated Collections

When making a big change in your life, knowing where to start is often the hardest part. Blinkist’s expert curators have you covered.
They create collections of books covering one topic in particular. Some are reading lists you can make your way through, others are titles recommended by a successful figure or thought leader, and then there are short multi-day challenges to give you a crash course in a topic.

Collections for a better you in 2023 include “Get on Track to Being Debt-Free,” “The Modern Mothers Toolbox,” and the “10 Day Compassion Challenge.”

Guides Take You Through Self-Development Mini Courses

Guides are one of Blinkist’s latest offerings. They’re mini-courses narrated by an expert that take you through key lessons from multiple books, short exercises, and helpful recaps.

With Guides, you can dive deeper into a topic and leave with the tools you need to make changes in your life.

For example, productivity expert Kory Kogon walks you through the Guide “5 Steps to Accomplish Your Goals,” Blinkist’s head of content development Caitlin Schiller narrates “Finding & Nurturing Adult Friendships,” and marriage and family therapist Shadeen Francis created “The Secret to Pleasurable Sex.”

Share Your Favorites with Friends, Family, and Coworkers

Want to build deeper connections with those around you? What better way to do it than by learning and growing together? Another new feature on Blinkist is Spaces, a way you can recommend your favorite titles and share notes on ideas you’ve discovered with others.

You can create Spaces for your book club, work team, or just you and your best friend, around topics like personal development, productivity, or parenting.
