Beat Procrastination

Beat Procrastination

  • By having zero expectations, you can beat procrastination. The mere thought of beginning work causes resistance. Instead of starting work, you're training yourself to reach a norm. When the job quality expectations are too high, it takes longer to get started.
  • Low-quality work is simple to start.
  • High-quality work feels like preparing for a two-day marathon.
  • Accelerate your Flow state to Level Up.

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.
