To Know and Not to Do

I’ve always loved this quote. We tend to give ourselves credit for what we know rather than what we actually do. We’re quick to remind others, “I know how to do that.” Maybe, but are you doing it?

If reaching our goals and dreams was merely about what we know, we’d probably already be there.

The truth is it’s about consistently and persistently we apply what we know to what we want to achieve.

Always be learning, but always be prepared do as well.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!

Motivation Classics: Big Rocks – The Affirmation Spot for Monday July 26, 2010

Perhaps it is a part of the human condition that we so regularly need reminders of the most important things. We seem to be experts at minutia and forget about the big things except in those moments when we have a return to awareness.

Most of you have probably heard of Stephen Covey’s famous Big Rocks story. However, I’d never actually seen the demonstration until I came across this video. This is one of those important insights we need to constantly have in front of us.

Stay inspired!
