Always Assume Initiative

Always Assume Initiative

Avoid sitting around waiting for an invitation and be willing to initiate social interactions and events. If you want to spend time or do something with someone, go for it.

If you don’t ever initiate social interactions, others may believe that you aren’t interested in their company.

Honesty Is The Antidote

Honesty Is The Antidote

If you’re interested in forming deeper relationships with others, you have to get over the fear of voicing opinions or being controversial.

If you’re always agreeable and afraid to speak honestly about things you care about, you will be perceived as nice, but almost no one will know who you really are.

Being afraid to talk about your passions and opinions or to ask questions about things you’re curious about is essentially concealing your identity from others and making you difficult to trust or bond with.

Rejection Is A Tool

Rejection Is A Tool

When you consistently express your honest opinions, you’re bound to come across people who completely disagree and run the other way.

That’s a good thing, because you can tell pretty quickly who will be sticking around, and those are usually the people who you can bond with.

It’s better to opt for honest communication and a quick rejection than dishonest communication and a gradual rejection.

Gradual Rejection

Gradual Rejection

Gradual rejection is when the rejection occurs later on in a relationship and is usually between two people are incompatible, but afraid of communicating honestly.

They begin to get frustrated and bitter over their fundamental differences that were never sorted out at the beginning, which often results in a lot more pain.

E.g. two people getting into a relationship, only to breakup later down the line because of their differences.

A lot of people have a difficult time finding others who share their hobbies, interests, and opinions.

This is because they tend to only look for people in the most general of places.

To increase your chances of finding others you can connect with, go to places or events where people who share your interests and values are.

E.g. going to church if you’re a Christian, or joining a sports team if you’re passionate about a sport.

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!

Sean Green

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

Ghazala Begum

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.

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!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
