It is the best time in world history to be alive. We are safer, healthier, less violent, more tolerant, more educated, and more literate than ever. We have more economic freedom, more knowledge, more entertainment, and more connectivity.
But, the overwhelming amount of information and opportunity makes it more difficult to find meaning and purpose. We should learn how to deal with the effects of new technologies and be aware of its limitations.
In the late 2000s, people believed that we would make better decisions if we were informed correctly. However, it takes a huge amount of energy to cope with contradictory ideas, resulting in blindly believing whatever you want to believe.
The aversion to overwhelming amounts of complex information creates a maturity crisis, which is why the ability to learn will become more valuable in time.
We lived through the first time in history where the amount of stimulation available to us far outstrips our ability to enjoy it. This creates new problems:
Populations are collecting in densely populated megalopolises. The cost of living and level of education is high, so is the access to amenities and art. In contrast, the rural parts of the world are more and more being left behind economically as well as in education, infrastructure, and culture.
This divide causes tension as it drives new attitudes and beliefs about equity, fairness, and justice.
Your ability to learn well on your own is the most important life skill. When there is an infinite amount of information, the advantages of learning and processing information in diverse ways grow exponentially.
This ability to learn well on your own and do so quickly has a compounding effect. The more you learn now, the better you will be able to learn and process new experiences in the future.
In the entertainment world from before, you were either a great superstar, or you were broke.
Today, the great majority fills the middle. If you're good, it is easier than ever to get your work out there and acknowledged.
After at least three generations, it might make more sense to skip going to college.
For some, college still makes sense. However, for many, universities are too expensive, the education they offer is not keeping with the times, and is less necessary for good careers.
Amazon's logistical efficiency, Apple's global supply chain and other tech companies like Samsung, Facebook, and Google are corporations that are holding the world together more than any international governmental organization.
Consider the popular virtue of vulnerability. Initially, the message was that vulnerability is not a form of weakness, but a demonstration of strength.
It didn't take long for television shows and social media influencers to grab hold of "vulnerability" and use it to connect with their audience. Today, vulnerability is almost cliche. It is corrupt and the total opposite of real vulnerability.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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.
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!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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!
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.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
