Learning is the process of putting together a sequence of thoughts and actions.
It is a series of repeatable behaviors that can be diversified and adapted.
Information is the basis of action for all living things.
Without it, we are not able to control and predict our surroundings, or to react appropriately and flexibly to them.
Information is much more powerful if we can keep it and save it. This is where memory enters.
Memory is the ability to save and recall information so we don't have to go back to square one every time we perceive something as important.
We can think of intelligence as a flexible set of skills: a toolbox. And the most basic tools in the intelligence toolbox are:
Being creative translates into building something new and valuable from apparently unrelated things. In the context of intelligence, this means making new and unusual connections: pairing input with memories and skills, to come up with a unique solution to a problem.

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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
