Recreate your relationship with your phone

  • Turn off notifications. Reduce distractions and the urge to check your phone, encourage proactive behavior, and improve cognitive load.
  • Use it as little as possible. Stop carrying around your phone everywhere you go. Make it a challenge to watch your screen-time drop over time.
  • Get over your FOMO. Overcome your fear of missing out by uninstalling your social media apps or stopping checking them every 2 seconds.

How to train your attention

How to train your attention

  1. Unlock the power of brain points. Our brain has a limited daily decision-making capacity and can be depleted (or increased) by different activities. I explain this in more detail here.
  2. Exercise your mind and body. Start meditating, reading books, and doing physical activity. This will boost cognitive abilities, including attention, focus, and concentration, among many other benefits.
  3. Journaling. Keeping a journal helps you gain awareness of your thoughts and how they influence your attention. Free guide on journaling.

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.

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!

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!
