Don't try to achieve balance

Don't try to achieve balance

You must shift your priorities to the most important at any given time to move forward. Like riding a bike, where you have to shift your weight forward and start moving, not to topple over.

3 key areas in life

3 key areas in life

  1. Work: your job
  2. Personal: relationships, hobbies, health
  3. Home: Household chores

Don't try to spread your time and energy equally between these three areas. Ask yourself: "What is most important right now?"

Unrealistic expectations

Unrealistic expectations

Identify these expectations, whatever they are for you, and let go of them. Stop worrying about what other people may think of you and make decisions that reflect what is truly important to you.

When you’re 20 you care what everyone thinks, when you’re 40 you stop caring what everyone thinks, when you’re 60 you realize no one was ever thinking about you in the first place.

Define your life's purpose to make better decisions

Define your life's purpose to make better decisions

  1. Your mission: ABC Brain Dump will give you 26 different words -  look for recurring patterns/themes and write down your easily memorable and short mission statement.  
  2. Your vision: “Where do you want to be in the future?” Use a vision board and imagine your best possible future. Turn it into a short, memorable vision statement.  
  3. Your core values: Write down no more than 6 words that you would like others to use when describing you in your absence.  

Put these 3 together and you will have a better idea of your life's purpose and a guide for making better decisions.

Three productivity myths busted

Three productivity myths busted

  1. Multitasking makes us slower and produces drastically inferior results 
  2. We need to take breaks: 20 minutes for every 100 minutes worked 
  3. Technology is not always better: Write down your ideas and to-do's from time to time. You will pay more attention and store the information better

Priority List

Priority List

  1. A: Important and urgent
  2. B: Important and not urgent
  3. C: Unimportant and urgent
  4. D: Unimportant and not urgent

Sort all your tasks into this framework and tackle the As before the Bs and the Bs before the Cs. Eliminate the Ds.

C - Connected to your purpose?

L - Linked to a goal?

E - Essential?

A - Advantageous?

R - Reality-based?

When you answer 3 or more of the above questions with yes the task is important. If not, then it is only urgent.

Whitespace - Play and Explore

Whitespace - Play and Explore

We all need more whitespace in our lives: Time to explore, play, and think. Try switching off your phone from time to time and going out into nature to get lost in your thoughts. Meditation can also be a great addition to your daily routine.

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.

samz905

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.

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.

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
