People with a lot of self-discipline understand that willpower is a last resort.
Willpower should never be a primary strategy for accomplishing difficult things.
Better to avoid temptations in the first place than trying to resist them.
How would I achieve my goals if I had zero willpower?
Self-disciplined people view motivation as extra credit — nice to have when it shows up, but never to be expected or counted on.
Feeling a surge of motivation is not required to do hard things.
Self-disciplined people don’t fall into this trap because they understand the true nature of the relationship between feeling and action:
Self-disciplined people know that feelings are not to be trusted.
Self-discipline requires a healthy skepticism of your own emotions.
Emotions are behavioral heuristics — your mind’s guesses about how you should act. Worth paying attention to, but not to be followed blindly.
Self-disciplined people have a knack for staying focused on effort and ignoring outcomes.
Self-disciplined people are able to make consistent progress toward their goals precisely because they don’t spend much time thinking about them.
Spending too much time thinking about your goals is a distraction from the things you actually have control over — your actions.
The best attitude toward outcomes and goals is to “set it and forget it.”

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.
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.
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.
