You're not wasting time

You're not wasting time

Even if you make a bad choice, you still gain:

  • Experience: Even if you spend years in a career you weren’t suited for, you’ve gained useful skills along the way.
  • Connection: Treat every person you meet as having something valuable to offer. 
  • Feedback: When things don’t work out your way on your initial attempt, you’ll have a better idea of what to do next time.

Value experience over credentials

Value experience over credentials

If you feel unqualified for the path you're walking on, keep in mind that expertise comes from knowledge and experience — not from a piece of paper. 

Being viewed as an expert comes from knowing what you’re talking about and earning people’s respect.

Focus on short bursts of productivity

Focus on short bursts of productivity

Set aside short blocks of time for focused and productive work. To make the most out of it:

  • Don’t multi-task.
  • Get rid of distractions.
  • Commit to a realistic time frame you can follow through (concentrated work + breaks).

“We like to think of our champions and idols as superheroes who were born different from us. We don’t like to think of them as relatively ordinary people who made themselves extraordinary.“

"Don’t look at experts and influencers in a state of awe — vow to take their spot. They aren’t special. They’re just normal human beings who had the audacity to believe there’s more to life than living a mediocre existence."

The labels you put on yourself

The labels you put on yourself

They shape your actions. If you think of yourself as lazy or weak, you act in accordance with that label.

Instead of placing labels on yourself, try making statements indicating you’re in the process of improving. Change “I am” to “I’m working on it.”

Turn envy into curiosity

Turn envy into curiosity

This will help you to take action instead of feeling sorry for yourself. So the next time you see someone do something you want to do, either:

  • Reverse engineer what they’ve done
  • Seek them out and ask them how they did it.

Treat safety as negative

Treat safety as negative

Seek to become antifragile by introducing volatility into your life. Structure your life in a way that benefits from uncertainty. The most adaptable species are the ones who survive — not necessarily the strongest.

Fear as motivation

Fear as motivation

Fear provides the motivation you need to succeed if you use it the right way. 

You can't get rid of fear so point it in a direction that helps you.

Finding your tribe

Finding your tribe

Your goal should be to find your tribe and build a following of dedicated people who support your higher vision.

Find 300 Spartans instead of building a giant army.

Make success chase you

Make success chase you

Focus on becoming the best version of yourself, and success will follow:

  • Focus on creating a great product instead of the number of people who will buy it.
  • Focus on writing great blog posts instead of the number of people who will read them.
  • Focus on learning as much as possible instead of seeking worthless credentials.

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.
