We are what we repeatedly do.

Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

Going With The Flow

Going With The Flow

When we have to complete a task we don't want to do, every minute feels like a lifetime and we can't stop looking at our watch.

What makes us enjoy doing something so much that we forget about whatever worries we might have while we do it? When are we happiest? These questions can help us discover our ikigai.

There is no magic recipe for finding happiness, for living according to your ikigai, but one key ingredient is ability to go with the flow.

Wabi-sabi-

It's a Japanese concept that shows us the beauty of the fleeting, changeable, and imperfect nature of the world around us. Instead of searching for beauty in perfection, we should look for it in things that are flawed, incomplete.

Impermanance Of Things

Impermanance Of Things

  • The only moment in which you can be truly alive is the present moment.
  • We should never forget that everything we have and all the people we love will disappear at some point. This is something we should keep in mind, but without giving in to pessimism. Being aware of the impermanence of the things doesn't have to make us sad; it should help us love the present moment and those who sorround us.

Resilience

Resilience

One thing that everyone with a clearly defined ikigai has in common is that they pursue their passion no matter what. They never give up, even when the cards seem stacked against them or they face one hurdle after another.

But resilience isn't just the ability to persevere. It is also an outlook we can cultivate to stay focused on the important things in life rather than what is most urgent.

Sooner or later, we all have to face difficult moments, and the way we do this can make a huge difference to our quality of life.

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.

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!
