Success is not the result of any single quality; it’s about alignment between who you are and where you choose to be.
People often say that effort is the number-one predictor of success, but research shows it’s actually one of the worst.
Invest in strength versus lack of weakness. While improving yourself is noble and necessary, research shows that many of the more fundamental aspects of personality don’t change. Traits like verbal fluency, adaptability, impulsivity, and humility are stable from childhood through adulthood.
The science of luck is about encountering new opportunities which can be simpler if you are an extrovert.
Dealing with other people is a huge part of what most of us do, and how we get along with others is often key to success.
As a rule of thumb for meeting new people, assume the other people will like you and they probably will.
It is better to give than to receive, therefore look for opportunities to do something for other people (e.g., sharing knowledge).
Find a mentor! You don’t have time to make all the mistakes yourself, and of course making those mistakes can mean failure.
It’s better to let others make those mistakes and you can learn from them. Great mentors and great teachers help you learn faster.
When pessimism teams-up with ambition it often produces outstanding performance.
To be the very best at anything, you will need to be your harshest critic, and that is almost impossible when your starting point is high self-confidence.

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!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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!
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.
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.
