Taking copious notes prevents you from forgetting things and saves you the time you would spend searching for it again.

Get a Lot Of Feedback

Having feedback can help you spot issues you tend to overlook. Also an uninvolved opinion also prevents you from investing on something that is bad because you are emotionally attached to it.

New Formats And Structures

Writing in different styles and formats lets you find and hone aspects that apply to multiple formats. You also get to exercise your skills as the writing won’t come as easily as it would if you were writing in the style you’re comfortable with.

More Practice, Less Theory

It's easy to unintentionally keep researching or reading or tweeting and not writing to the point it becomes procrastination. To fight against that, limit the time you spend on those activities and stop subscribing to sources of content that don’t add to your work.

Experiment with New Formats

New formats are exciting and scary, and definitely worth doing if you want to stretch your writing muscle.

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.

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

Jamyson Haug

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

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.

Ghazala Begum
