The To-Do List

The To-Do List

  • The to-do list is the most important component of any productivity system.
  • It takes the mountain of tasks, chores, activities and ideas out of our head and into the world, where we can see them clearly.
  • The to-do list frees up our brain for creative work, without the fear of forgetting something.
  • If the list becomes too overwhelming, we can edit, condense, or delete tasks to make it simpler.
  • We can opt for a notebook and pen, or install an app on our smartphone.

Habit Formers

Habits are powerful, and the key component of any habit is being regular.

Just like Jerry Seinfeld used a giant annual calendar, crossing a big red X on days he worked, we can use habit-forming apps to keep us regular in our desired routines and not break the chain.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

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!
