It was Jane Austen’s most romantic writing. But underneath there was a deeper desire. Something we all share. A thirst for more information. Learn how Three Magic Minutes can radically change the way you process the information around you.


Where is the life we have lost in living?

Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?

Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

That’s a good question. And it’s worth reflecting on.

What information do you value most? What relationships? How can you demonstrate you truly value them?


Schedule 3 Magic Minutes today after an important event and ask What Have I learned? You may have to set a reminder in your phone or create a calendar invite. Some of my friends have put it in the agenda for their meetings. The 3 Magic Minutes are a luxury of self-reflection. It’s connecting all the dots you’ve been collecting along the way. And then, hopefully, what you will do differently, or better.
