The Reproduction Shift: Ladder-Climbing to Ladder-Building

  • “How high can I go?” was the question of the ladder-climbers of the greedy 80s. Then it evolved to something a bit more human as “How high will others go with a little help?”
  • These ladder-holders recently became ladder-extenders, and started positing themselves the question: “how high will others go with a lot of help?”
  • We need to make the final step and become ladder-builders. The new question leaders should adapt as an objective is: “Can I help them build their own ladder?”

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

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!

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.
