The best answers in the world have no value whatsoever if they belong to the wrong questions.
All of us have goals and desires, and to move towards them we look for answers. We fail to realize that the answers are not as important as the questions we can ask.
The focusing question which is essentially a combination of the most important questions, goes like this: What is the one thing that I can do, so that by doing it, everything will be either easier or unnecessary?
This question looks at the smallest thing that will impact the biggest thing.
Normally we think we are productive and working hard, but in reality, we may be just confused, busy doing urgent things on our to-do list that may not be important or impactful for our main goal.
The focusing question removes the clutter and makes us focus on the one thing that is aligned to our main purpose, making us avoid pseudo-work.
Many of our activities are unnecessary but we don’t know it. If instead of asking ourselves what is to be done, we change the question to what is that we can simplify, or subtract from our work.
This puts the focus on the essential activities while eliminating the ones which look like work but are not helpful in any way.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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.
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!
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.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
