New Year's resolutions fail

80% of New Year’s resolutions are broken within two months.

Going against our nature

Going against our nature

Change is easier when we play our strenghts, but is going to be hardest when we are not committed and when it involves going against our nature. 

A hack that promises to help us can’t when it depends on us having to unlearn our deep-rooted patterns of adapting. That’s why playing to our strengths is much easier, to the point of not requiring much effort at all.

Wanting change vs. wanting to change

Wanting change vs. wanting to change

Most people don't really want to change, they want to have changed.

When people profess a clear desire to change, that usually means they are interested in change as an outcome rather than change as a process.

Change and our environments

The mere thought of change is threatening and frightening, which is why we gravitate toward the familiar and are generally happier with the devil we know. We make our environments as predictable as possible

Personalities and change

Personalities and change

Our personality constrains our ability to change, limiting our likelihood of replacing old habits with new ones

This is not to say that people can’t change, but they either become exaggerated versions of their earlier selves, or follow a common maturity curve that makes them less open to new experiences.

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

Sean Green

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.

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!

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
