Focus only on One Project

Focus only on One Project

The rule is to have one project at a time. Among all your interests , pick one to pursue. You can always learn something else later, but if you find you lack time for one then you will definitely fail to find time for three.

Anything that requires learning effort is a project. Commiting to one project promises real progress. In practice, sequentially pursuing projects doesn’t limit your breadth.

Make learning easy to get started. Set up the right environment for least preparation before real practice.

  • Have materials on you at all times . If you’re reading, always carry a book or Kindle.
  • Set up your working area so starting is instantaneous. If you’re studying for an exam, keep material open to start.
  • Batch all the tedious starting work. Tedious preparations may precede real learning. Set time aside for it to take advantage of time to make progress.

Integrate Life and Learning

Integrate Life and Learning

Align your project with sources of meaning in life like something that fits within your existing work, social or family pursuits.

Learning a skill independently before getting responsibilities for it becomes harder to follow through but a skill for work is easier to learn. When learning is disconnected from other things we care about, it tends to fall away.

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.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

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.

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.

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!
