Turning knowledge into achievement

Turning knowledge into achievement

  • Knowledge leads to results & achievement only when we let it guide our actions.
  • To efficiently use brainspace & ignite creative new ideas, ask yourself: 

     1. How can I use this (to help channel
focus in that direction) ?

     2. Why must I use this? "Well done" is
much better than "well said".

     3. When will I use this (to generate
motivation internally)?

"How CAN I use this?"

"How CAN I use this?"

  • Start every learning process with "How can I use this?"...the possibilites of that knowledge for you... that's the first thing to direct your focus towards.
  • Questions activate the RAS system of the brain responsible for directing our attention.
  • Attention directs energy flow & leads to action.

"Why MUST I use this?"

"Why MUST I use this?"

  • If emotions aren't involved in a decision, the knowledge from the head doesn't reach the hands as action. H cubed...the head-heart-hand connection. No meaningful action comes without conviction, the involvement of the heart.
  • That's why it's important to find the 'must'...explore the benefits, involve emotions to improve chances of action.
  • It's important for your actions to reflect your show what you are capable of. It's better 'well done' than 'well said'.

"When WILL I use this?"

  • Dreams become real when you put them into your calendar....they turn into goals.
  • Don't cancel on yourself. Treat it as other most important things in your life.
  • You can't get validation from others outside of you. Motivation to put your priorities first run out of steam if it's dependant on outside has to come from within you. 👇
  • When motivation comes from within, we start doing things because it's who we are.

"How do I teach this to someone I love?"

"How do I teach this to someone I love?"

  • When we teach something, it becomes a part of who we are...not just reiterating the words. It becomes personal.
  • When we share something, we learn in twice. We get a more personal perspective on the knowledge.

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.

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.

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.

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!
