1. Delete the unneeded

Go through each app and ask yourself 2 questions:

1. “Do I overuse this app?”

Yes? Delete it.

2. “Does this app help me and do I need it?”

Yes? Keep it.

But what if you want to take self-control out of the equation?

2. Download an app-blocker

You’d be surprised how many times you unconsciously check your apps.

Downloading an app like Freedom can be a lifesaver.

Freedom allows you to block specific websites and apps at certain times.

This trick alone will save you hours of wasted time.

3. Make it difficult

Disable app stores and use parental control.

iOS — Go to Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions again. 

Now, go to iTunes & App Store Purchases and disable App Store installations.

This will completely hide the App Store from your phone.

4. Lock it up and throw away the key

Even if you use parental controls, you can still access the apps if you use your password.

Unless…

You generate a random passcode, write it down, and give it to someone.

Now you can only access the apps when you absolutely have to.

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.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

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!
