Daily routine

Daily routine

The best routines come at the start and end of the day because they give a great start and finish to your day.

Develop a routine for when you awake, for when you start working, for when you finish and leave work, and for your evening.

How to Develop Habits

  • Focus on just one habit, for 30 days.
  • Put it on paper, together with your motivations, obstacles, and strategies for overcoming them.
  • Commit fully, preferably in a public way.
  • Track your progress.
  • Remain publicly accountable — report on your progress each day.
  • Have support for when you falter.
  • Reward small wins.
  • If you fail, figure out what went wrong, plan for it, and try again.

Develop Positive Thinking

Develop Positive Thinking

Start by becoming more aware of your negative self-talk: do a little tally sheet throughout the day, marking a tally each time you notice a negative thought. Soon you’ll recognize them, and you can squash them.

Focus on one goal

Focus on one goal

This is the most powerful way of achieving your goals.

Exercise

Exercise

How exercise is improving your life:

  • It makes you feel better about yourself and more confident.
  • It forces you to think positively, in order to sustain exercise.
  • It relieves stress and gives you time to think.
  • It helps with creativity.

Single-tasking

Single-tasking

  • You’ll be more effective with your tasks and get more done. Things like constantly switching tasks and being distracted by other “urgent” things really affect overall productivity.
  • You’ll be less stressed overall and (in my experience) happier throughout your day.

Kindness

  • Do something kind for someone each day. 
  • Each time you interact with someone, try to be friendly and compassionate.

Eliminate the non-essential

Eliminate the non-essential

The essential relates to the things that are most important to you from your life.

Find them and then eliminate everything else. This simplifies things and leaves you with the space to focus on the essential.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
