We strive and learn, and write all the right notes in a very nice and tidy notebook. We buy the right tools, and we connect with the right people.
Today, because of our information/data age of internet, there are so many people to listen to, people who have found a way to solve all mysteries and are very eager to give them away to you for free (including me). I subscribe to many of them. Seth Godin, Tiny Buddha, Kim Anami, Art of Manliness, etc. and they’re great. They all give me such food for thought it encourages me daily. They each have such a rich abundance of life I could spend most of the better part of 10 years reading their archives page after page.
So, I’ve found my golden source of water. My lifeline. My connection to the super culture I’ve always been looking for.
Or have I?
Have I got my new secret way that only a small culture of us have tapped into and will exercise? Sure, we’re exercising our minds and that’s a huge part of the battle. But this idea is dangerously close to sitting back into cruise mode and keep ourselves busy reading blogs that tell me that I’m doing it right.
To quote Ben Harper, “You can put a man through school, but you cannot make him think.”
You’ve done the reading. you’ve studied the books, you follow the blogs, you’ve got the tips. You’ve learned it all. Now we step out into the new light of day and say, “So, I think I’m ready now.”
I think I’m ready now, and I think you’re ready now! But, I guess that’s up to you to decide.
Let’s put this plan into action.
