Absorbing vs Doing

January 27, 2014

One of the most important decisions you’ll make today is how much of your time you’ll give to absorbing, and how much time you’ll give to doing.

There was not always the endless supply of information we have today.  So used to be that once you absorbed all the available information on a topic of interest you got started doing what ever it was you were planning to do.

Two things have changed.  First the availability of information is now infinite.  Second the speed at which new information becomes available has more than doubled.  All this makes it difficult to stop absorbing and to start doing.

I suggest you budget some time for actually doing.  It’s the only way you’ll make a ding in the universe.
