On finding your compass

You need to reflect on your legacy. Who do you want to be remembered as? What is a defining feature of your identity?

There will be instances when you will be hoping that something will work, without being able to convincingly explain to yourself how it will work. That is when a little bell should go off. Ask yourself: What’s the problem I need to solve? Does this solution make sense? If I’m feeling some doubt, why? Am I doing this for sound reasons, or am I motivated by something personal?

On treating people:

  1. Excellence and fairness don’t have to be mutually exclusive. 
  2. A little respect goes a long way. The absence of it is very costly. 
  3. Connect and exchange words with everyone at the table. It is a small gesture, but it is important to make people feel seen.

On Leadership:

You have to convey your priorities clearly, and repeatedly. That is what separates great managers from the rest. If leaders don’t articulate their priorities clearly, then people around them don’t know what their priorities should be.

On Leadership:

Good leadership isn’t about being indispensable. It’s about helping others be prepared to possibly step into your shoes, giving them access to your own decision making, identifying the skills they need to develop and helping them improve, and being honest with them about why they’re not ready for the next step.

On Excellence:

  1. If the big picture is a mess, the small details don’t matter anyway, and you shouldn’t spend time focusing on them. You need to have a clear understanding of the big picture.
  2. Do the job you have well. Be patient. Look for opportunities to pitch in and expand and grow. Make yourself one of the people, through attitude, energy, and focus, that your bosses feel they have to turn to when an opportunity arises.

On Innovation:

If you want innovation, you need to give permission to fail.

On Humility:

  2. Don’t let your ego get in the way of making the best possible decision.
  3. Anything that reminds you that you’re not the center of the universe is a good thing.
  4. Hold onto your awareness of yourself, even if the world tells you how important and powerful you are.

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!

Shankul Varada

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.


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
