  1. For every action, there is an equal and opposite emotional reaction.
  2. Ur self worth equals the sum of our emotions over time.
  3. Ur identity will stay your identity until a new experience acts against it.

“If you get off your ass and actively seek out pain, the body is anti-fragile. Meaning it gets stronger the more stress and strain you put on it.….but if you avoid stress and pain… your muscles will atrophy, your bones will become brittle and you will degenerate into weakness.”

Pain Is The Universal Constant

Pain Is The Universal Constant

  • The default human condition is to avoid pain and pursue pleasure, But this pursuit of pleasure is toxic because it is misleading and self-defeating.
  • The antidote is to actively engage with pain and learn to suffer well.

The Blue Dot Effect:

The Blue Dot Effect:

“Humans warp their perceptions to fit their expectations.”


  1. In the pre-Uber days, we were willing to wait for 30 min for a taxi to come. Today we complain if there is a delay of even 5 min. 
  2. A decade back, someone was living in a small apartment and very contented. Today, the same family lives in a Villa with a much higher living standard and feels less satisfied than before. 

Convenience has improved but satisfaction has not.

To Build And Maintain Hope

To Build And Maintain Hope

  1. A sense of control: We’re in control of our own life.
  2. A belief in the value of something: Something important enough to work toward, something better, that’s worth striving for.
  3. A community: A group that values the same things we do and is working toward achieving those things.

People want diversions from their pain, like social media to scroll through, or cheeseburgers or ice creams to divert them from their stress, These things, these diversions, give us the feeling of ‘freedom’ (temporary freedom from our pain), but really this is just FakeFreedom.

  • Real freedom comes from sacrifices and choosing what to give up.
  • The only TRUE form of freedom is through SELF-LIMITATION. It is not the privilege of choosing everything you want in your life, but rather, choosing what you will GIVE UP in your life.

Hope Is F*cked

Hope Is F*cked

  • The hope that brings the most joy to our lives is the same hope that brings the greatest danger. 
  • We must stop hoping and accept what is. That is the only way to end the perpetual cycle of conflict.
  • Don't hope for better. Be better. Be something better. Be more compassionate, more resilient, more humble, more disciplined.

“We are inconsequential cosmic dust, bumping and milling about on a tiny blue speck. We imagine our own importance. We invent our purpose—we are nothing. Enjoy your F*cking coffee.”

"A good idea should be like a girl's skirt; long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest."


“Living well does not mean avoiding suffering; it means suffering for the right reasons.”—Mark Manson

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

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.

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!

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.
