Key, overarching idea of the book:
Our brain is 'driven' by 2 different parts: System 1 & System 2.
System 1 can assess a situation and choose a response very quickly. It controls most of what we do, and is like the line-workers and middle management of our body & brain.
System 2 is slower, more deliberate, and -- most crucially -- it's very lazy. It rarely engages unless it has to.
My analogy for System 1 & System 2: a functional team (whether a sports team or a startup) where all members are equally young & inexperienced, but 1 has been nominated the leader. This person has to sometimes step out of their default, reactive behaviours and act like the grown-up in the room, but it takes conscious effort to do that. Those are the situations when System 2 gets involved.
System 1 = your Automatic brain, and it's often ruled by emotions and feelings way more than we'd like.
System 2 is your Deliberate brain.

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