Focusing on the small wins over the big goals

  • In mountain climbing, break each climb into smaller milestones and focus only on making it to the next milestone
  • Cherishing small wins motivates you to keep going and eventually, you reach your big goal

Reframing "failure" into re-prioritization

  • Turning around and giving up on a summit objective after months of hard training and preparation can be excruciatingly painful.

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!

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.
