My inbox is full each day. It’s true for almost all of us. It’s also true that this is my fault, I signed up for most of these newsletters and let’s be clear I enjoy the content, for the most part.
But these actions are coiling the spring. I am learning. And there comes a point where the learning needs to end and action needs to start.
Don’t get me wrong. I understand the benefits of being a life long learner and consider myself one. However, if you are cold, there is a huge difference between learning how to build a fire, and actually making one.
My life, much like yours, is crowded. There is only so much time in a week. And it’s time I started using what I have learned.
So I am putting the books away.
I am clicking on the delete or archive button and not opening that email.
Because July is dedicated to action.
To forward movement.
To getting out there and getting my hands dirtier than they’ve been this year.
After all, this is the intension of learning is it not?
