MODELS OF REALITY

  1. Create a manifesto that summary what you’re seeking to bring to the world, your beliefs and values, and how you operate. Add this to your website if you have one. Remember to share the ?why of what you do.
  2. Find your big why. Throw out the dispassionate corporatespeak. Talking about your beliefs, your values, your vision for the world will engage people’s emotions, which is how they make decisions.
  3. Craft a Vivid Vision and make it public. Speak three years into the future. Don't worry if you’re currently small or operating from a warehouse. Talk about the future as if it’s happening now.

Means Goals Versus End Goals

  • End goals are the beautiful, exciting rewards of being human on planet Earth. End goals speak to your soul. They bring you joy in and of themselves, not because they confer any outward label, standard, or value attached by society.
  • Means goals are the things that society tells us we need to have in place to get to happiness. Almost everything I wrote down as a goal was actually a means to an end, not an end in itself.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

samz905

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

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!

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.

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.

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!
