Why rest and recovery are important
Getting ready can become a distraction.
Being prepared is overrated: start before you feel ready.
Being successful is not about your ability to plan, but your ability to act.
You may make more mistakes at first if you decide to start acting before you feel ready, but the long-term compound effect of learning from these mistakes will get you closer to your goals than any amount of preparation.
The illusion of a perfect time to start is holding you back.
“It takes a long time to feel ready. Everyone thinks it’s an overnight thing, but when you start out, it’s really hard.”
Yes, getting ready is comfortable.
But most successful people report feeling uncomfortable when they first got started.
Many still feel uncomfortable—or, in the words of Larry Page, “uncomfortably excited”—many years after they achieved what many would consider as huge successes.
Instead of preparing and researching, start before you feel ready.
Pick a first step and just do it. Repeat that step until you feel comfortable enough, then kick it up a notch.
When you look back, you won’t believe how much progress you’ve made.
You don’t know what you don’t know. The best and quickest way to learn is through experience
Avoid the illusion of productivity. Reading tutorials or watching fitness videos feels good, but it’s just a way to trick your brain into thinking you’re being productive by keeping busy.
Momentum takes time to build up. Over time, your efforts will compound. Any time spent not acting is time wasted.

Procrastination is such an obstacle for creative perfectionists that sometimes we could use a reminder to just do things. Stop overthinking.

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.
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.
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.
