“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.” -Mahatma Gandhi

Welcome to Brioxy. We’re incredibly excited you’re here! Over the last 6 months, as we’ve prepared for our beta, lots of people have asked two specific questions:

  1. What is life design; and
  2. Why a platform for young people of color?

There are three important things you need to be successful as a young person of color:

  1. You need to know the rules of the game;
  2. Understand your own leadership and how best to harness it; and
  3. Have a space to hold yourself accountable for getting shit done.

All around are incredibly talented young people of color with ideas and visions that could change the world. Yet without access to the resources and capital to make them happen, these ideas are often poached by those who do have the resources and networks.

We’re tired of that! Brioxy is a place that combines life planning, life hacks, and project management for your day-to-day life. That’s life design. We want to be in your corner, putting you in control of your life and destiny.

Signing up for Brioxy will help you to stop making the most common mistakes:

You set deadlines, but not a schedule. Making things happen requires not just a deadline but a schedule of when things will happen, in an order that allows you enough time to do them well. Most project or life management platforms don’t give you space to manage multiple deadlines over time. That’s the key. You need to make sure that you free your mind up to dedicate as much of your time and energy to the tasks at hand. Scheduling out your tasks on Brioxy ensures you’ll get more done.

You’re not growing fast enough: Malcolm Gladwell is famous for popularizing the 10,000-hour rule. Basically it says that it takes roughly 10,000 hours of intentional practice at something to become gifted at it. We think of it more as the privilege principal: those who have access to resources to start their 10,000 hours sooner are ahead of the game. It would take a lifetime to learn all the lessons you’ll find on Brioxy. Make up for lost time and accelerate your growth—learn from others.

You’ve set your sights on an event instead of your habits. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It’s easy to become fixated on the outcome we want to achieve. However, it’s the changes in our daily habits that transform us. The life hacks on Brioxy get you to think about the small habit shifts you can make to unleash your greatness. We believe in the power of the “small win”. Those small wins everyday will help us to become our highest self.
