Most of us feel pretty busy, but Hitha Palepu is a prime example of someone who thrives at this pace.

She’s a mother, mentor, an accomplished author and the co-founder of Bridge2Act. An extraordinary platform which allows you to donate to vetted non-profit organizations and charities. Her website’s name, Hitha On the Go, is a fair representation of just how she operates.

With all of the above at play, you’d think that Hitha would have enough on her plate. But with this vast variety in work and lifestyle her appetite to learn has only grown.

Hitha’s solution is the Blinkist app.

Blinkist helps lifelong learners like her access the great nonfiction books they ache to read, but might not have time to dive into in full.

Sound too good to be true? Noted.

Admittedly, the app cannot control or alter time, but what it can do is give you the most important aspects of a book in the blink of an eye – more than 1,900 of them, as a matter of fact.

It’s with the Blinkist app that Hitha manages to fit her daily learning into her already busy lifestyle.

The app has especially transformed Hitha’s morning routine.

As soon as she rises Hitha is very much on-the-go.

Following meditation and journaling, Hitha digs into her first read of the day using the Blinkist App.

Hitha follows up by listening to yet another bestseller with Blinkist audio.

This hands-free way of reading allows her to dive into her day—make coffee, get together her workout clothes, and get her kids ready to go—without wasting a moment of time she could be learning.

By the time most people wake up, Hitha has already read the highlights from two nonfiction books, and is ready to tackle her day.

Hitha loves reading about history, science, productivity/work, psychology, and business, but is interested in just about everything.

Blinkist has given her the resources to increase her knowing on these subjects each and every morning.

She’s also able to apply her learnings immediately. From learning about Nike’s founding success in Phil Knight’s Shoe Dog, to changing work methods through Francesco Cirillo’s Pomodoro Technique Hitha builds the knowledge she gathers through Blinkist into ever-better days.

Ultimately, Hitha created more space, more success, and more knowledge by carving out a place for learning with Blinkist.
