In our daily life, we see we can't do those little things which don't even take a major part of our day, don't ask for effort or any kind of mental preparation.

But we are unable to do them. The reason is Procrastination. 

This 2-minute rule drastically cut down procrastination and makes you capable to move around continuously completing these small chores.

Rule #1 by Getting Things Done.

If it takes two minutes to do, get it done right now

Instead of writing a to-do list, or probably forgetting about it or having it come back later which takes more than 2 minutes, do it when you notice it.

These little things start to add up so this rule biases the brain towards taking action and away from procrastination.

Rule #2 by Atomic Habits.

Rule #2 by Atomic Habits.

When you tryna do something you really don’t want to do - simplify the task down to 2 minutes or less. 

If you’re skeptical, then limit yourself to ONLY 2 minutes.

This method seems unproductive at first, it seems stupid but staying consistent with this 2-minute routine day after day makes you master the habit of just showing up.

  • A habit needs to be established before it is expanded upon.
  • You gotta start somewhere but starting small is easier.

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.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.


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.

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.
