How to make rational decisions
The role of biases in decision-making
The impact of social norms on decision-making
To use foresight and to tackle the world’s problems one individual at a time, we must be of sane mind.
We must also understand the problems and empathize enough that we want to give money to organizations that help, offer up our homes to those in need when we can, and do jobs that help shape a better future (among other types of action). We also want to share kindness and love to others — friends, neighbors, people we encounter at the grocery store — and raise kids that do the same.
We now gain a huge amount of our knowledge through images, and that’s not all bad. Many people learn and retain information better through images. But because we are likely to believe what we see, digital images (which may be altered or out of context) may be contributing to a post-truth world.
Is the problem the images? In our image-centric world, is there a different impact on our brains? Do we think emotionally instead of rationally when we understand ‘the news’ in this way?
Hegelian dialectics teaches us that moving between opposing views and looking for different angles will help us find the best way forward.
Hegel believes that all world problems will eventually be sorted in this way. The caveat is that we have to be open to hearing/seeing/reading these opposing views.
Often we forget to look at what’s good or what we have achieved in the face of difficulty. Sadly, it’s easier to remember our traumas than happy memories.
It’s easy to think about what we still need to do or what went wrong or an uncomfortable situation. But stop to think of what you have achieved or your top three moments of the day. You might be surprised by the results.

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!
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.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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.
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.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
