The importance of setting boundaries
“It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested. Life is long if you know how to use it.”
“To accuse others for one’s own misfortunes is a sign of want of education. To accuse oneself shows that one’s education has begun. To accuse neither oneself nor others shows that one’s education is complete.”
“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.”
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
We are creatures of habit. Whether those habits serve us or hinder us is the difference between being happy or being stuck in a life where we merely exist.
Choosing the right habits is the ultimate lifehack to help you be happier. And those habits may be different for each of us.
Our happiness is a byproduct of our thoughts but focusing on only having positive thoughts is unrealistic. Instead, focus on not dwelling on the negative ones.
We judge because we want to know the answer before we understand the challenge. The first step in moving past judgement is releasing the need for an answer.
Instead of judging, form an opinion. Judgements are assumptions that usually do not change. An opinion, however, is an isolated view of the world that can change with the discovery of new information.
We do plenty of activities that do not contribute to the fullness of our life, some of them are mandatory but others are optional. Understanding how you spend your time makes it simpler to choose to do things that lend value to it, and that even makes the mandatory tasks easier to do.

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