Start Small And Not Big

Start Small And Not Big

Keeping and maintaining good habits works a lot easier with small changes and small habits or actions. If we think "too big" it most probably won't occur.

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!
