Quiet Quitting

  • People who continue to come to work every day and do their job, but maybe aren't going above and beyond-they're turning off notifications and not answering work emails at 10 p.m.
  • Quiet quitting is simply people looking for a little more work-life balance, while actually putting in the work.

Take Advantage of Your "Golden Hours"

Golden hours are essentially our best times of day for deep thinking, creative thinking, and strategic thinking.

Communicate Your Boundaries With Your Team

If you've been a 24/7 worker, you may need to reeducate your team and your supervisor about when you're available.

Say simply, “I won’t be available after 7 p.m., but will be able to get back to you first thing in the morning."

If you receive pushback, ask for specifics about why that's an issue.

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!

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.

Jamyson Haug

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!
