The Drift

The Drift

Drifting can happen to anyone. It’s not just a problem for young people; it happens to people of all ages and career levels. 

Drifting happens for many reasons. Some people are unaware of what’s going on in their life or what is at stake, they’re distracted by a hobby or career, overwhelmed with responsibilities and commitments, or deceived by their own minds. Regardless of the reason for drifting, it can lead to 5 consequences: confusion about life’s meaning and direction; wasted time and money; lost opportunities; physical pain from poor health; emotional pain due to lack of fulfillment.

Life Planning

Life Planning

A Life Plan is a document that helps people answer questions about their life and goals. It outlines steps to achieve those goals, as well as answers some specific questions they may have regarding their lives.

The first step is for people to think about the end of life and legacy that they leave behind; then they should write down their plans by prioritizing each goal with importance and urgency.

When formulating your Life Plan ask three important questions:

  • How Do I want to be remembered?
  • What matters the most?
  • How can I get from here to where I want to be?

 Life Viewed In Terms of Compartments

Life Viewed In Terms of Compartments

  • The Circle of Being. These are things that emanate from you. They include the spiritual, physical, and intellectual accounts

“We tend to think effective people are busy. Not so, unless they’re busy with the right things—and many people aren’t. When things in our business or life get busy and hectic, we often lose sight of our priorities. But by keeping the truly important things front and center, we often get the perspective we need to make better decisions.”

“Here’s the reality: Your personal life is a myth. There is no such thing as a compartmentalized life. Every area, space, category, and set of relationships is interrelated. You are a seamless whole.”

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!

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!

Jamyson Haug

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

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.
