When Sahil Met Tim

When Sahil Met Tim

  • Sahil Bloom met Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, at the gym; they were both a part of the 5 AM crew.
  • Tim Cook has the most insane work ethic; wakes up at 3:45 every morning
  • They started chatting about an article Tim Cook was cited in.
  • Sometime later, Sahil correctly guessed his e-mail address and sent him the article as a follow up to their gym chat.
  • Sahil never asked them for anything; he never wanted a job at Apple or to pitch a startup idea.
  • He just wanted to be around them and learn, absorb.

The Zone Of Genius And Excellence

The Zone Of Genius And Excellence

  • The Zone of Genius is like a “sweet spot” where your interests, passions, and skills align
  • You are playing a game that you love to play and are uniquely suited to win at.
  • The Zone Of Excellence is when you have high competence but you lack energy and passion for the things you do
  • People stop asking questions when they experience comfort (a steady paycheck, a pat on the back for doing a great job, etc.)
  • This kind of comfort and productivity is not bad in itself. If that makes you happy, it’s amazing.

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

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.

Sean Green

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!

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.
