1. What’s the one quality that everyone must have?

1. What’s the one quality that everyone must have?

Persistence, perseverance, determination, grit—call it whatever you want.

Living a tranquil life is hard. And it takes a lot of hard work to achieve a state of tranquility. Persistence is what makes that possible.

When you give up without a good reason, you’ll never know how your life could end up.

2. What’s the one book you suggest everyone read?

  • Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
  • Men’s Search For Meaning by Viktor Frankl
  • The Story Of My Life by Helen Keller
  • On The Shortness Of Life by Seneca

This book needs to be read consecutively. Preferably, you want to read it for at least two hours a day.

3. What’s one powerful advice for living a fulfilling life?

Get clear on what you want.

People who always hesitate, can’t make up their mind, and who are all over the place, will be left behind.

Decide what you want. And be firm with your execution. Don’t deviate from the path. For nothing and no one. If others can’t accept that, they are not the right people in your life.

4. What’s one piece of important financial advice?

Don’t try to make money.

That’s because of a well-known paradox: He who tries too hard will fail.

When you try hard to make money, you’ll become unethical and focus on the wrong things. When you focus on providing genuine value, you will be rewarded for your help.

5. What’s one skill that everyone must have?


Not because we write so many texts, emails, and messages. No, writing is thinking.

So when you become a better writer, you’ll also become a better thinker.

How does one become a better writer? By writing more.

6. What’s one thing that you regret starting late?


I’m not talking about stocks or real estate. I’m talking about adopting the mindset of an investor.

I never thought of everything you do in life as investing. Working out, reading, taking classes, spending time with people who matter to you—it’s all investing because these activities have a return.

7. What’s one thing you learned the hard way?

Doing something is different than reading about it.

Sometimes you read about something that sounds nice. Starting a business, moving to a specific country, working remotely, etc.

Of course, this is not true for everyone in big cities. But it’s the way many people my age live. And that’s something none of them will admit.

8. What’s one thing that should never be forgotten?

You’re never alone.

Life gets hard sometimes. And for some of us, our natural instinct is to solve everything by ourselves.

Don’t do that. No one in the history of mankind became happy or successful without help. Realize that you’re not alone.

Seek out people who share the same values as you. Become friends. They will help you when the time is right. And vice versa.

9. What’s one thing we must not think twice about spending?

This is obvious, but my answer is “books”.

A few years ago, I acted like a cheapskate when it came to books.

I remember picking up Antifragile by Nassim Taleb in a bookstore once. I decided I couldn’t spend 10 bucks on that book. I probably went to a Starbucks after that to drop $5 on a fancy drink.

10. What’s your definition of life in 50 words?

This is a very powerful question. The truth is no one knows what they are doing.

That’s life in 7 words. And it’s something I truly believe in. It’s what keeps me sane.

No one knows. We can all guess! And that’s what a lot of people do. However, we must know that everyone you see around you is no different from you.

That means we’re all the same. We’re trying to figure things out. That’s precisely what this article was about.

A medical student!🩺 I’d like to live as simply as possible. I love reading- regardless of what type of book it is. People are wonderful, especially those closest to me. I’m determined to do some good for others in whatever I end up doing in the future.

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!


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

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!
