How to Get Your Sh*t Together, Part VII: Implementation & Action

Today, we have access to more knowledge than at any other point in human history. When it comes to changing our lives for the better, this is mostly an advantage.

But is it just a question of knowledge? If it were, wouldn't we all be walking around with rocking 6-packs and pockets full of cash?

Why is it that even with the accumulated wisdom of humanity neatly contained in a small device in our pocket, many of us struggle to make real change?

In part, it's because knowing the thing and doing the thing are not the same. There also comes a point of diminishing returns where more information becomes a hindrance to effective action.

If we wish to steer the ship of our lives in our desired direction, we will need more than just knowledge. We will need to become implementers. We will need to overcome chronic procrastination and take consistent, effective action.

But where do we start?

As always, we provide 3 points of advice in order to answer this question and help you become an implementation machine.
