The encouragement to think

Few of us dedicate their time to solitary thinking that can restore our spirits and move our lives ahead.

It's easier to spend time picturing our goal or what a project is going to be like than to actually do the project. We tend to value the thinking mindset more than the doing mindset.

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.

Shankul Varada
