Only 30 Seconds! -part1

Only 30 Seconds! -part1

Immediately after every lecture/meeting/ any significant experience, take 30 s — no more, no less — to write down the most important points.

If you always do this, and even if you only do this, with no other revision, you will be okay.

  • It’s not note taking: It’s an act of interpretation, prioritization & decision-making.
  • Quantity is not an excuse: Capturing everything is worth less, we only avoid the hard work of deciding what something counts .
  • You learn to listen better, ask better questions: this habit changes the way you pay attention to a talk/discussion.

  • Act quickly: Waiting a few hours, you may recall the facts, but you lose the nuance. And this makes all the difference in deciding what matters. (The tone/way one seemingly simple suggestions sparks others? The shadow of an idea in your mind? Write down fast!)
  • You’re able to help others more: This habit helps to observe what matters to other people, manage different interests in future conversations, understand others needs and so solve their problems.
  • Each time you practice, it gets a little easier, a little more helpful/valuable and little more fun.

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.

Shankul Varada

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.

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!
