All I needed was growth,

I sought pleasure instead.

In your arms I found comfort,

You masked a pain that you could not heal.

Whatever your reasons were, I thank you for the time we had.

Now it’s time to grow,

Now it’s time to grow,

I recognize my choice and flaws,

I admit my weakness and my pride.

It’s true you had me overfed with trifle pleasures,

but I did not always have to eat from your seductive buffet.

I see clearly now.

The big red button across the room.

We drop our dreams and ambitions outside its door,

One push and a three-second jolt of electricity running through our brains.

I watched Darcy, Victor, and Mia all go in, mindlessly.

A vigorous punch and each time the sound was the same.

Self-destruct! Self-destruct! Self-destruct!

Self-destruct! Self-destruct! Self-destruct!

I flee from you and am not turning back.

It’s a difficult journey but I’m not coming back.

My map is incomplete and my destination, I don’t know.

but I’m not coming back

I choose growth.

I’ll keep choosing growth.

This time, I won’t self-destruct.

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.

Sean Green

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!


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

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.

Jamyson Haug

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

Ghazala Begum

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.

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!
