Finding time to think and plan your life

Finding time to think and plan your life

Thinking-time facilitates thoughtful big-picture solutions. It's also calming and gives us additional control over our life.

  • While walking the dog, on a hike, or while commuting.
  • Waiting for the elevator, at a doctor’s office, in the supermarket line.
  • When bored instead of eating or turning on the TV.
  • Just before going to bed or when you first wake.
  • When you get home from work or on a weekend morning.

Tools to make thinking-time a habit

Tools to make thinking-time a habit

  • Make it easy. You can decide to not make it daily, but as an alternative to vegging on the couch in front of the TV or with your phone.
  • Remind yourself of the benefits to justify why you deserve thinking-time. Benefits - better address problems & have a long-term approach to life's big issues.
  • Create a motivational mantra that you’d say each time you drink something,
  • Tie the new habit to something you never skip. Like, just before dinner or bedtime.
  • Create accountability. For example, use a tracker.

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

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.

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.

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!
