Feeling Like-30 Again
Who is it for
Wiztango is a digital platform for Publishers, Authors, Enterprises and other Content Originators to enable learning circles.
The Lifelong Learning Council aims to help people of all ages develop a habit of continual learning for a more purposeful and productive life. We hope to inspire a society that embraces lifelong learning as a way of life.
LearnSG Seed Fund – a $3 million fund set aside for 1 year – aims to grow community-led learning initiatives. We are looking for ideas that:
Build and promote lifelong learning culture
Impart and encourage work and life skills learning
Benefit the community and Singapore
No idea is too big or too small. Get funding for up to 90% of project costs, capped at $50,000 (whichever is lower).
So, get together with your friends, neighbours or community and bring your learning ideas to life.

Around age 40 or so, we hit life’s proverbial wall. General tiredness, depleted stamina and dropping energy-levels seem to be the norm. Are you feeling it? Do you just accept this as-is or strongly desire change? Step into our digitally-facilitated coaching circle, commit yourself to a 21-day journey and begin to feel re-juiced again.
A few years before I hit the 50-mark, I began realizing a persisting sense of tiredness. My vital signs were all A-OK. Often, I reflected on it and what bugged me was whether this feeling would just never go away; YIKES!! I simply couldn’t accept it. I researched and took action for a top-to-bottom re-haul. Now, I am in a much better place, feeling stronger, smarter and healthier than even couple of decades ago.
The choice to do something is clear. We don’t need a gym membership or a fad-diet but we achieve it as close to zero-budget as possible. We focus on changes in our daily activities and habits centered around three key areas (1) mind (2) body (3) nutrition. I have done the work and created a road map for you. We also have a great digital system to facilitate the process.
How does it work?
There is no sage on the stage and as such each of us must work to achieve change. In our case, we, generally, means you as part of a group of people, a learning circle or a collective intelligence formed for this shared purpose. As highlighted in the agenda, there is a set process with daily content and activities. The learning experience is digitally-facilitated. As such, we can do it anytime and anywhere; we save time and effort to travel and to meet.
Our daily schedule
Day 1 | We kick-off with a digital-virtual (online) session. If you miss this session, no worries, a video of it is shared. FYI: this is no motivation talk. It is you who must contextualize the challenges and opportunities. My role is only to facilitate. Your goal is to create a strong WHY. Because we do know that success is elusive if the intrinsic motivation is unclear.
Day 2-21 | You research the mind, body and nutrition; share insights and recall relevant stories. Each day sets the stage for you to reflect and apply the learning into your life.
Day 22 | Review and reflection
Join me on this journey back to the future, back to when we were younger but not as smart.
