Study what?

Study what?
if you don’t learn these things to put into practice, why learn them in the first place?
– Epictetus

Why do you read or take that course, or watch those how to videos and not implement what you have studied.

To say I know that?

Studying on it’s own is useless, knowledge on it’s own won’t do anything.

If the purpose of study is to collect knowledge then you can instead focus your time on something more useful that will impact your life

Because study without implementing is a waste of time,
Learn, but make sure you do something with it afterwards

Live Up To What They Taught You

The best way there is to thank a teacher…
Is to live up to what they taught you

-Ryan Holiday

I don’t think that there could be anything more fulfilling as a creator than knowing your work had impacted and changed someone’s life…

A teacher can be from a book or some random person you met in the street and everything in between…

I know from working in the fitness world that it’s frustrating when you spend months, years working with someone and then as soon as they leave, They revert back to their old habits…

I’ve also been the dude to read books on a topic and not implement so I am just as bad I guess…

But the principle is simple, Learn something, Implement it, You improve your life and automatically fulfil your teachers legacy.

So Show Your Gratitude and Do What They Taught You.

Applying

Applying.

I read over 60 books last year, some were fiction for a change but the rest were personal development type of books.

I also did a few courses…

The year before I read over 40 (can’t remember the exact amount)

And guess how much of this information I had applied…

Very little.

Information is useless if we don’t apply it.

It just goes into the back burner and then forgotten.

What a waste.

So today’s principle is to apply something you learn everyday.

It’s simple really so I as well as you need to apply it.

(I’ve already slowed down my reading this year so I can apply more and be more productive.)
