  • 'How is this different than other things I’ve read?’ 
  • 'How does this relate to other material I know?’

Sticking With The First Answer

In school, many of us were taught that if you put an answer on a test you shouldn’t change it, but we’re actually better off reconsidering. We actually need time to deliberate and reflect to understand something.

How to really learn: While facts are important, how you use them is key. To solve new problems and come up with ideas, you need analogies and systems of how things relate to each other.

More Time For Learning

Putting in a lot of hours doesn’t always mean you’ll become good at something. People tend to be blissfully unaware of their incompetence.

How to really learn: What works instead isn’t just time; it’s outside advice and input. That’s why hiring coaches and tutors is so beneficial to learning.

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.

Sean Green

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!

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.
