A spectrum of philosophies

There is great variation in the way people approach structuring their lives, with different approaches to planning, goal setting, and decision making.

  • The first approach is to live for today. People in this category prefer what is current to what has already happened or what will occur. These people can be characterized as present time-oriented.
  • At the other end of the spectrum, there are the extreme planners, where meticulous control and extensive consideration of one’s life’s direction are thought to be the best ways to ensure success and overall well-being.

The three pillars of life management

The three pillars of life management

  1. Personal goals. Instead of creating multiple to-do lists, consider your life as a whole. By acknowledging that you are more than the sum of your parts, you can work on what researchers call intergoal facilitation. 
  2. Self-regulation. Once you have selected your integrated goals, you need to understand and manage your reactions to events happening around you. This self-regulation process involves practicing new skills or seizing the right moment, and finding ways to overcome obstacles to success.
  3. Age-related expectations. You may need to adjust your goals based on the phase of your life.

Practicing life management skills

Holistic life management is never “done and dusted” — it’s a constant work in progress of selecting integrated goals, regulating our reactions, and adjusting our expectations. 

Lifelong learning and the willingness to explore, make mistakes, and adapt are all essential skills to make the most of your life.

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.

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.

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

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.
