Establishing a relaxing bedtime routine
Focus on what you can do TODAY, not on what you didn’t do yesterday. Don’t become mired in the past. What’s done is, well, done. Make today count.
The trick to getting started is...getting started. Establish a regular work routine rather than just waiting around for inspiration to strike.
Once you get started, you may find that things begin to fall into place. Once a process starts in motion, it tends to stay in motion.
Break down larger tasks into more manageable subtasks . Create a list of subgoals or subtasks. Accomplish the subgoals and the final goal becomes achievable.
Focus on the present subgoal. Don’t worry about subgoals further down the list.
Start with small, easily accomplished subgoals, and build up from there.
Starting small helps you reach a larger goal without overwhelming yourself.
Credit yourself for whatever you accomplish today, however small it may be. Don’t focus on things you still need to do. Credit yourself for what you did do.
Don’t begrudge yourself for what you didn’t do. Just carry over any unfinished tasks to the next day.
Break down tasks into 15-30-minute morsels. Don’t bite off more than you can swallow at any one time.
Give yourself a 10-15-minute break every hour. Reward yourself for accomplishing a designated task by then (and only then) engaging in a more desirable activity.
Think video games, Facebooking, reading, texting, watching TV, etc. You choose the reward, but the trick is to connect it to the completion of the designated task.
At the end of the day, jot down 2-3 things you accomplished that day and 2-3 other things you plan to do tomorrow. Then expand the list to more things. Create a schedule in advance so you will hit the ground running each day.
Apply the "good enough" standard to yourself. You don’t have to be perfect. You just need to be good enough. Setting unrealistically high standards prevents you from trying because of the fear of not meeting the unreasonable expectations.

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!
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.
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.
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.
