I can watch a gardening and home renovation show and learn a couple of new handyman tips, but I won’t really get better until I start to apply my new knowledge.

I can watch a cooking show and be intrigued by a new recipe, but I can’t say that I have mastered it until I’ve tried it a few times.

I can go to an awesome sales seminar and pick up some amazing tips on how to generate leads and close sales, but I’m not a better salesperson until I apply these skills with real people.

I can witness a brilliant speaker and preacher talk about how to live a better life, but I don’t actually have a better life until I utilise what I’ve heard.

It’s important to get helpful content into your head.

Reading great books, watching clear instructions and listening to experts are all good and noble things to do.

But they will only take you so far.

So, what are you waiting for?
