One of the worst things you can do is waste your existence.

Life is one of the most amazing things in the universe and you’re incredibly lucky to be here right now. So, take advantage of it!

However, if you don’t have goals, you’ll default to focusing on things that don’t matter. You’ll depress yourself with negative thinking or engage in drama with others.

Whether you want to learn a new skill, improve your personality, or strengthen relationships, your goals will determine if it happens. When you don’t have them, you’ll spend time watching those who do, while your life slips away.

4. Make a plan

Next, write out everything you’ll need to do, and if you don’t know, Google it.

  • Then, prioritize these steps and schedule time to do them.
  • Break down the massive projects into smaller steps.
  • Also, give yourself enough time so you don’t fall behind or get discouraged.

Then, hang your list in your daily line of sight and do the steps you planned to do in the times you’ve set.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Jamyson Haug

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