When boredom strikes, resist the urge to distract yourself immediately. Instead, take a moment to reflect on why you're feeling bored.

Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don't fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day.

The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.

Value of Time

Value of Time

Recognize that the value of time is more important than time itself. How you spend your time, especially during moments of boredom, shapes your life's narrative. Consider the analogy of an apple in a basket: just as you must remove all the apples, including the decaying ones, to maintain freshness, similarly, use boredom as a signal to evaluate and remove stagnant activities or mindsets that hinder your growth.

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

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!

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!
