Talk to People

Don't expect anything. You’d be surprised at how much you can learn just from listening to other people talk.

You’ll get insight into people’s motivations, hopes, dreams, and ambitions. And you can learn how others got to where they are today—and if that’s a path you want to be on, too.

Get Started

Do something. Even if it isn’t quite the right thing, it is nevertheless movement that can give you an opportunity to experience.

There are so many things you can do for your career—even if you don’t know what you want to do: start creating a portfolio or learn a new skill.

Walk into a bookshop and go straight to the autobiography section. Buy books from across different industries, societies, and cultures.

So what better way to get started than by learning how others reached their goals? Keep in mind as you’re reading that these people weren’t born knowing what they wanted to do either.

Leave Your Comfort Zone

Maybe you don’t know what you want to do because you haven’t tried what you’re meant to do yet. And you won’t know if that is true or not until you get out there and start ruling things out.

Be Okay With Failing

Nothing will slow you down more in your quest to figure out what to do with your life than being afraid of failure

You won’t ever be able to nail down what makes you happy if you rule everything out because it sounds hard.

Enjoy Not Knowing

Don’t pressure yourself to be in the future.

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!

Sean Green

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

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

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!

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.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
