Stay On Your Course

Stay On Your Course

Don’t switch fields, don’t look for a new job, don’t move on.

There’s a decent chance your motivation for leaving is driven by two things: The grass-is-greener fallacy of wrongly assuming the alternative is better or denying the fact that great opportunities occasionally require annoyance and sacrifice.

On the flip side, some careers and jobs are dreadful, and the economy only works when people are willing and able to find better opportunities. 

Stay put is good advice maybe a third of the time when you’re young and perhaps half the time when you’re older.

Trust Takes Time

Trust Takes Time

  • Most people would never consider marrying a partner until they’ve dated for at least a year, maybe five, because it takes that long to grasp what a person is or isn’t capable of beyond their surface-level resume.
  • However, people expect their employers and coworkers to give them full respect, autonomy, and confidence from the start. It rarely happens.
  • Trust has to be earned, and it’s mostly earned through firsthand observation over time when people watch you under a variety of circumstances. Even when you have a track record at other companies, trust is doled out in small doses initially.

Earning Trust Is The Hidden Benefit Of Staying Put

Earning Trust Is The Hidden Benefit Of Staying Put

The key is that you’ll probably do your best work when you've earned your colleagues’ trust, which is the hidden value of staying put.

This is especially true if your job involves making good decisions vs. doing something physical with your body. Good decisions require lots of quiet time alone in your head, maybe sitting on the couch thinking or going for a walk. It rarely looks like work, which means your coworkers have to trust you when you’re doing it.

Staying Put In Investing

Staying Put In Investing

In investing, selling after a bad stretch feels like the right thing to do. You learned your lesson and seek greener pastures. But everything we know about investing shows it’s the wrong action: the big money comes from compounding uninterrupted over years and decades, when what you’ve done is not as important as how long you’ve been doing it for.

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


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!

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.

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.
