  1. Hope that luck finds you.
  2. Effort to get smarter so luck finds you.
  3. Spot Ideas by being serious about your learning.
  4. Destiny. You connect concepts and generate new ideas so to attract opportunities. 

Based on Naval's 4 types of luck idea.

Level 1: Hope

You stay up to date with the news, scroll the feeds. Nothing proactive.

You are the mercy of the tech & media companies but somehow think you are better than them. Good luck!

Level 2: Effort

You dedicate time & energy to develop your skills. You read books, go to courses etc. You take your life seriously and you get a (vague) sense it could be improved.

If you get better at the game of life, opportunity will seek you out. Luck favours the prepared.

Level 3: Spotting Luck

You see take your education seriously & you are always looking for the insights in everything you are consuming (reading, watching, listening etc). You capture ideas and you reflect on them. 

You can cut the signal from the noise and this makes you sensitive to luck.

Level 4: Luck becomes your Destiny

You have enough knowledge to be creative: connecting (or recognising relationships between) concepts. You generate new ideas and insights, and thus casting a web of magnets out into the world.

Those ideas will attract people to you. As your web grows, the connections—and luck—compound accordingly.

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.

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.

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.

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.
