Have a 'dump'

Have a 'dump'

The general rule to beat the stress out of you is to not keep looking at future deadlines or to-dos. It's important to focus only on the list that you've curated for that day.

This is why we have a 'dump.' It is the area in your workspace where you store yet-to-be sorted to-dos. If something is urgent, we slot them into our schedule and put a task back in the dump.

At the end of the day, we need to review our dump to set up tomorrow's task list. As long as you're reviewing your done tasks, they won't fall through the cracks.

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

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.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

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!

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