We are born curious. Children learn from their surroundings by touching, smelling, and looking at everything. It is our best and most effective tool for discovering new things. However, some people are born with a deeper sense of curiosity that allows them to learn constantly.

We can also cultivate curiosity. Whether traveling, reading, or finding yourself in a new situation, be curious and present. It is a great first step in your journey to becoming more knowledgeable and accumulating new and innovative perspectives.

The power of focus

The power of focus

Geniuses are completely focused on their work and prioritize it.

Take the case of Albert Einstein, for instance. If you think of him, you probably picture him in a solitary study or behind a dusty blackboard in a lecture hall working on his groundbreaking ideas. In reality, Einstein was able to maintain his concentration regardless of his surroundings.

Rediscovering a lust for creativity

  • Be open to new and unfamiliar experiences. Push yourself to do something that scares you. Let yourself get lost in the wonders of nature or a new city.
  • Learn about geography, history, and local culture.
  • Ask questions. When you’re in the role of student or employee, don’t be afraid to reveal what you don’t know.
  • Once you ask, listen to understand. You’ll always learn something.

Defying the established order

It is not unusual for geniuses to wreak devastation on their surroundings. The boat sways as a result of their actions. 

Whether we like it or not, they are altering the course of history. They also don’t do it in a way that is compliant with the law.

Rest and relaxation

Rest and relaxation

Being brilliant entails more than simply being able to focus. It also involves the capacity to unwind, which is the polar opposite of exerting oneself and concentrating intensely.

According to the creative habits of many geniuses, the most effective method to come up with new ideas is to take a vacation from your job for a period of time, enabling your fatigued mind to slacken and relax as much as possible.

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.


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

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

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!

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.

Ghazala Begum
