Act like a sea star

Act like a sea star

... not a wounded bird. 

While a wounded bird usually can’t heal on its own, a sea star regenerates its own limbs. It doesn't have to wait for someone to come to the rescue.

While outside help can be beneficial, you don't always need someone to help you overcome an obstacle. You can find solutions to your problem.

Avoid becoming overwhelmed

Exposing yourself to too much information can actually work against you. Confusion can lead to indecision, which can easily prevent you from moving forward.

Nip it in the bud using stress-reduction techniques. Go for a walk, listen to music, cook, or write. The time away will allow you to see things from a fresh perspective.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help

Sometimes, life can get so challenging that we isolate ourselves. You should find a source of emotional support during those times.

Seek out people who lift you up, rather than pull you down.

Make gratitude a daily habit

Make gratitude a daily habit

When you stop and think about everything you have to be thankful for, the situation seems a lot less bleak.

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.

samz905

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.

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!

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

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.
