That and more on this episode!

Today's topic? We spend our early lives rapidly accumulating knowledge. The trouble is that there's a huge gap between knowing and doing. It takes time to be able to translate that information into a form that can affect your life, your career, your family and your training for the better. 

Let's get to it!

I commend you, but you're making a big mistake. Let me point you towards something better...

- Learn to lean forward and work

- Understand the four key phases of development, and where you are

- Finally, embrace where you are now, and know that this is right where you belong for the moment

This podcast could change everything for you.

I wanted to take a moment and share my view on programs. You know, specific programs that you can find out there in the wild. Here's the summary:

- You need a plan...some kind of program...but there's no magic in it.

- The test is whether or not you're making progress. If you are, then you're just where you need to be. If not, a change might be in order.

- However, do not get caught up in the game of chasing down the perfect program for you. No such thing exists! There's no magic out there. You just need to understand which tool might be best for you right now. 

- Your first warning sign is when you feel frustrated that maybe someone else is doing something better. That's a lie.
