Instead of wasting your time escaping from your present life, invest your time in figuring out what is the life you want to live. Instead of slipping into that rathole of scrolling through the feed, go watch or read about different topics and see what interests you and maybe you’ll find something which will make your life more interesting and which will push you to go forward in life instead of sitting on the couch and scrolling through the feed.

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.

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!

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.

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

Jamyson Haug
