Adventures in Life

Become who you aspire to be. Coach Willis shared this year's key thoughts in Napkin.

We care deeply.

We live through wonderful times. Information supply peaks. Social media, newsletters, podcasts – thousands of years of human thought are right at our fingertips.

Human curiosity is the key to progress. But ever more curious minds feel overwhelmed and struggle to “keep up” with information streams. This feeling is instilled by the countless time bound information feeds we juggle every day and leads to a rat race instead of deep thought.

We need a place to store all the inspiring thoughts we come across. A place where the relevance of information is determined by its content, and not by publishing dates or social status. A place that is private by default and that is built for inspiration.

That’s why we build Napkin.
