Planning vs taking action

Planning vs taking action

Motion makes you feel like you're getting things done. But really, you're just preparing to get something done.

Most of the time we're so focused on figuring out the best approach that we never get around to taking action.

Planning and strategizing are all good things, but they don't produce results.

Motivation

Motivation

Truth is, our real motivation is to be lazy and do what is convenient.

Energy is precious and the brain is wired to conserve it whenever possible. It's human nature to follow the Law of Least Effort.

When trying to build a habit, the idea behind make it easy is not to only do easy things. The idea is to make it as easy as possible in the moment to do things that payoff in the long run.

The two minute rule

The two minute rule

The two minute rule states, "When you start a new habit, it should take less than two minutes to do".

The idea is to make your habits as easy as possible to start.

A new habit should not feel like a challenge. The actions that you follow can be challenging, but the first two minutes should be easy.

People often think it's weird to get hyped about reading one page or meditating for one minute. But the point is not to do one thing. The point is to master the habit of showing up.

Instead of trying to engineer a perfect habit from the start, do the easy thing on a more consistent basis.

I'm at a stage in life where self help books get me excited. It's not a complaint, just an observation.

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.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

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!

β€œ

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.

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.

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!
