HIGHLIGHT

HIGHLIGHT

If you set a single intention at the start of each day, then you will be more satisfied at end of the day after completing that task.

Focusing on a daily highlight stops the tug-of-war between Infinity Pool Distractions and the demands of Busy Bandwagon.

It creates a 3rd path: Being intentional and focused about how you spend your day.

A Highlight should be bigger than a task but smaller than a major project.

Busy Bangwagon & Infinite Pools

Busy Bangwagon & Infinite Pools

Busy Bandwagon: This is the illusion of endless tasks.

Infinity Pools: Apps and other sources of endless (or infinity) replenishing contents. These are the endless distractions.

These days 'BUSY' is just like a 'Badge of Honour'

We are just trying to squeeze productivity into every minute of the day and forget to live more intentionally.

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.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

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.

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.

Jamyson Haug

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

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.
