Worrying about Outcomes

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!

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.

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!

Jamyson Haug

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