Hi, I’m Waldi!

I believe that ideas have the power to change lives.

But amidst an infodemic of superficial information, great ideas are hard to find.

I want to change this by collecting the best ideas I find on this website.

As a historian, I do this primarily by reading books, listening to podcasts and studying scientific papers from all areas of life. Whenever I find a great idea, I write about what we can learn from it.

By doing this, I strive to create a timeless collection of helpful ideas that you can use to live longer, be happier and get more done.

That being said, I don't have all the answers - nor all the ideas. In fact, I still have a lot to learn. I simply share what resonated with me and hope it's useful to you.

If you're new, I suggest you start by reading the most popular ideas.

If you find the ideas I share useful, you can subscribe to my free newsletter, in which I share articles, books and podcasts that allow you to learn about an idea in-depth.

If you want to dive deeper into my work, you can browse my list of recommendations, explore my book notes and keep tabs on what I do.

You can also learn from the short nuggets of wisdom I share on Twitter and Instagram.

And if you want to support my work, you can do so with less than 0.17€ per day.

I hope that my writings prove helpful to you.

If even one idea helped you in any way, I consider my work successful.
