Thriving in the Technology Era is a Harsh Sport

Thriving in the Technology Era is a Harsh Sport

This is why you want to expand your knowledge and skill repertoire so that you can gain some competitive advantage.

Combine a handful of skills that are rarely linked to each other, rarely blended together.

Examples:

  • Doctor& YouTuber/Streamer
  • Computer Science & SEO/SEM Marketing
  • UI Designer + Mathematician
  • Historian + Lawyer + Statistician
  • Programmer + Philosopher + Public Spe  aker

View yourself as an Experimenter

View yourself as an Experimenter

You are not trying to master and combine 50 different random skills and juggle an overwhelming amount of snowballs that can ultimately melt in your hands.

You are simply spreading your wings just a little bit more, a well thought spread I might say. Flying across the world of various skills and playgrounds that can be rarely found in the same mix.

Translate your thoughts

Translate your thoughts

"If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough."

- Albert Einstein

:::

Meaning =

if you are not able to translate your thought processes’ outputs into meaningful, actionable advice one can learn and build on is a huge loss for the future of humanity.

UI designer might be a skillful wizard with his craft, but making your project understandable for a non-designer, making him appreciate and then build on its true value, that’s a huge leap in our communication infrastructure.

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

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.

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!

Sean Green

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

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.
