Seneca

“Two elements must be rooted out once and for all:

The fear of future suffering, and the recollection of past suffering.

Since the latter no longer concerns me, and the former concerns me not yet.”

Finding What We Can Control

Most things are outside of our control, and if you were responsible for everything in your life you would also be responsible for every negative part of it.

Focus on making the most reasonable, logical decisions possible over what you can control and forget the rest.

Being A Good Man

The Stoics realized that morality is simply wisdom in actions. Being good is not an arbitrary, aesthetic choice. It is a practical, wise thing to do and involves being truthful, fair, cooperative and accepting of challenges and outcomes.

Living In The Moment

Living In The Moment

Not living in the moment is what brings anxiety and regret to our lives. Unless necessary, put out of your mind what is to come and what has been. Those are often unnecessary to satisfy most of our present needs.

Seeing The World As It Is

All feelings are the brain’s way of guessing what’s the world around us and what dangers it may pose. Emotions, especially fear, are extremely practical in keeping us alive, but our sedentary lifestyle confuses these emotions.

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.

Sean Green

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!

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.

Ghazala Begum

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.

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!

Jamyson Haug
