Decisions fatigue your brain. And routines eliminate decisions. Which ultimately means more brainpower. Routines are not OCD — they are efficient.

Take that first hour to think about the day ahead of you, read a book, enjoy your breakfast, coffee or tea.
A smartphone’s primary function is to interrupt you. Don’t let other people or apps interrupt you during the first hour of your day.
If you have recurring tasks, try to do as much of the same thing on one day, so that nothing else gets in the way.
Ask yourself the question Is That Really Necessary? as often as you can. You will find that your answer is usually: Nope.
Keep a simple work and living environment. A desk, a laptop, and a notebook. You don’t need any fluff.
With a cluttered brain, you can’t get stuff done.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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!
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.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
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.
