Easier = Better

Easier = Better

In essence, if you make something easier to begin, you will be more likely to make substantive progress on that activity. This applies to habit building as well - you are more likely to ingrain a habit that is easier to start and perform.

Making it 'easier'

Making it 'easier'

You can accomplish this in a myriad of ways:

  1. Have a dedicated area for studying.
  2. Put your study paraphernalia in places of easy access.
  3. Have similar items together (pens in a jar, books on a bookshelf, etc.)
  4. Try to stay organized as best as possible.

How to accomplish this

How to accomplish this

As you can probably guess, we accomplish this by making these things harder to access.

  1. Put your phone into another room - you will have to walk over to the other room in order to access it.
  2. Silence notifications
  3. If applicable, use a website blocker to temporarily prevent you from accessing distracting websites.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
