The Daily Highlight (HIGHLIGHT)

The Daily Highlight (HIGHLIGHT)

Choose ONE important, needle-moving activity to be your highlight task of the day.

If you can only accomplish one thing today, it should be this.

Mile long to-do lists can be counter-intuitive.

Cut it down to what matters.

Create Distraction Barriers (LASER)

Create Distraction Barriers (LASER)

The more layers of separation between you and a distraction, the more likely you are to resist it.

  • Log out of social media accounts
  • Put your phone out of reach
  • Set screen times limits

Stop giving yourself the option of distraction.

Live Like a Caveman (ENERGIZE)

Live Like a Caveman (ENERGIZE)

We are historically hunter-gatherers:

  • Walk more
  • Eat less processed food
  • Add bursts of activity in your day

You don’t have to do HIIT every day and starve yourself to be more fit.

Focus on small, sustainable changes.

Trial and Error Daily (REFLECT)

Trial and Error Daily (REFLECT)

Effective change happens when we take time each day to reflect:

  • What worked?
  • What didn't?
  • What can I do differently tomorrow?

The systems in your life are like living things.

— Constantly growing and changing as you do.

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

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
