Having A Good Laugh

Having A Good Laugh

Games, just like life, have a competitive component to them. But being obsessive, strict, and narrowly-focused on one thing to the exclusion of everything else is not the way to go if you want to be truly happy. Gaming is often just about feeling good, having fun, and being fulfilled and content at the end of the day.

Finding Shortcuts

Finding Shortcuts

There are rules to everything, and understanding the underlying system, makes it easy to find loopholes and exploit them.

In real life, there are many predictable situations and in most cases there is an easier way to overcome them if you know they are coming. You have to pay attention and exploit them within reason.

Failure Is An Opportunity To Learn

Failure Is An Opportunity To Learn

To get good at a game, you need to get to know the rules of the universe well and to develop the necessary skills. To do this, you need to fail many times.

Once you get into this mindset of “failure is merely a teaching tool,” you’ll start to apply it to other aspects of life without even realizing it. You can develop a lot of patience and focus if you go through life as if you were playing an RPG.

Hours Of Frustration Can Turn Into Joy

Sometimes you get stuck in a rut for hours before you ultimately complete an objective. But there is a feeling of utter joy when you finally accomplish something that seemed impossible for a long time.

Think Outside The Box

Think Outside The Box

There often comes a point in a game where you find yourself stuck. But eventually you learn that having patience and giving it time is better than despairing. 

When facing a hard challenge in real life, take some time off, do something else and try to think of different solutions to the problem after your brain has relaxed for some 10-20 minutes.

Don’t Be Too Trusting Towards Strangers

Don’t Be Too Trusting Towards Strangers

As kids, we are taught not to talk to stranger and be on our guard, but as we age we become less distrustful. And that’s not always for the better.

As choosing an easy to decipher password or trusting a stranger with your online items will show, there are many scammers out there waiting to pray on your compassion and trusting nature.

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.

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!

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.

Ghazala Begum

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.

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.
