1. Comparison is Competition

Shree Om Swami once said that comparison creates competition until and unless you are competing with yourself. 

Comparison creates a feeling of jealousy as you want to become better than others so it's a kind of bad idea as you are wasting your time and energy in something that's actually a big myth.

Comparison is common in today's youth but while you are working for self improvement you have to come out from this idea. 

Just remember one thing: there is someone who can do things better than you, you can't be perfect, you can just be improved, so don't make yourself perfect.

2. Avoid Distracting thoughts

Thoughts are a part of our day to day life and they are infinite there is no way to end them as they get connected with each other.

Getting yourself distracted from thoughts can be very time consuming as you lose your focus and time both. 

Try meditation and perform yoga. Make yourself busy the more you will be busy the less you will get distracted.

3. Don't plan everything

A person who plans everything can't stay happy, you can't plan your whole day. There are some aspects that are uncontrollable and can't be controlled by humans.

Setting a goal and a to do list is good but claiming to work in an allotted time seems next to impossible.

So sometimes it's better to have no plans because your plan doesn't work everywhere. Just keep a belief in your skills and hard work, make a to-do list and you are done.

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!

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.


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

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.
