Understanding the concept of opportunity cost
... by trial and error and consistently analyzing things related to big ideas, until you've practiced enough your brain can easily establish unusual correlations and a global comprehension develops.
Other ways to increase your capacity for thinking big include problem solving, performing optimizations, providing value to other, being ambitious and mentally trying the outlandish.
The key to shifting your perspective and developing the habit of thinking big involves stepping outside of yourself and into another persona — essentially becoming someone who will help you see things bigger, better and more creatively.
You must also think from the perspective of having no limitations or fears and ask big questions persistently until the right answer comes to mind.
To think big, find the time to think proactively about your situation. If you don’t you end up in reaction mode and that’s not conducive to finding solutions and ideas that address the larger aspects of an issue.
Also, think of big problems as opportunities. The more often you solve them the better you’ll become at solving future problems.
Weaknesses are things we neglected and consistently focus on over a lifetime. They are not limitations, but rather opportunities for change.
By challenging our weaknesses we naturally strengthen our ability to deal with the unexpected and develop our arsenal of skills and resources that can be used to tackle big goals.
Big goals are only achieved by those with the willpower and resilience to keep moving forward when others give up. Those who think big understand cultivating and cultivate these traits on a daily basis even when performing the smallest of tasks.
Thinking big implies setting goals beyond your comfort zone. The bigger the difficulty the bigger the thought.
Keep in mind that setting unattainable goals is counterproductive. An unattainable goal can lead to stress, worry, fear, procrastination and a plethora of other limiting emotions and behaviors.
To keep yourself on target, motivated and moving quickly, you must continuously test yourself and your ideas. And this involves setting challenging time-frames that test your limits and stretch your comfort zones.
Routinely create artificial problems to strengthen your problem-solving ability and stretch your imagination.
Artificial problems also have the benefit of at times leading to unexpected solutions for other seemingly unrelated issues.
Ignore the details at first, or what cannot be done. Instead, focus on the big picture and on the possibilities of bringing an idea to fruition. Later, you must ask effective questions that break down the idea into workable parts — making them practical and real-life scenarios.
Big thinkers always attempt to maximize the use of their time. As a result, they primarily focus on only the highest value activities that will help them to bring their big ideas into reality.
When conceptualizing big ideas, big thinkers take into account their personal strengths and abilities. By conceptualizing ideas that naturally support their strong attributes and talents, they increase their motivation and dedication.
Consistently reframe your problems by expanding possibilities and perspectives. First see the problem for what it is, then twist your perspective of the problem in a creative way to help yourself brainstorm better ideas and solutions.
Big thinkers associate with other big thinkers who are ambitious, motivated and inspire others to think, act and be bigger than they ever imagined was possible.
Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass. It`s about learning how to dance in the rain.

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

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