Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity.

Small changes may have a negligible immediate impact but when they become a habit and are repeated regularly over time they can change our whole lives.

The makings of a habit

The makings of a habit

  1. Cue: A trigger that gets you to act
  2. Craving: a desire you want to fulfill
  3. Action: the action of the habit itself
  4. Reward: the positive feeling you get from completing the habit

Cue: visible and unmissable

Alter your environment to make good habits easy and bad habits hard: put your running shoes right next to the bed for example. Also have a detailed plan of action called an implementation intention.

Temptation bundling

Temptation bundling

Link an important but unappealing behavior to something you enjoy doing: like listening to your favorite music while doing your chores. This will release dopamine in the brain and you will actually enjoy the new behavior.

New habits must be as simple as possible

New habits must be as simple as possible

  • reduce friction for good habits (e.g.: keep that plate of fresh fruit right in the middle of the desk)
  • build up friction for bad habits (e.g.: unplugg your TV and put the batteries out of the remote when you want to reduce your TV-time)
  • Break each new habit down into something you can do in 2 minutes: read one paragraph or do 5 push-ups.

You could put 5$ into your piggy bank for each day not smoked.

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

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

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!

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.
