More About Intek - Knowing a Skill vs. Living a Skill

About three weeks ago, I recognized a common phenomenon that's hard to describe.

A lot of times, you know something, but you're not doing it. Or you're not living it regularly.

When you come across information you've already read or seen, the temptation is to say, "I already know this." Okay, you know it - but are you living what you know? If not, you might want to keep studying and practicing on that topic, even if you feel like you "know" it.

When I start reading a book on managing money, or managing time, or setting goals, sometimes I have a reaction. I say, "I already know this." But then I stop myself. Stop. And I ask, "Am I living it?" Okay, I need some goals and I need to look at them regularly. Am I doing it? If not, I'll re-read the section, or watch another video on it.

I'll be honest - it's somewhat boring going through information you've already come across. But it's necessary if you're not doing/living it.

Three Day Challenge Report

On Huan M. Nguyen

Wednesday September 25, 2013

Good day for the challenge. I began a tracking habit, that I think will bring good gains and help me to keep on track and be more productive. It's given me a boost of motivation for today, that's a good sign. What it looks like:

Just looking at this, I know I spent 1 out of 5+ hours I know that I had free time on campus studying. Some of it was spent on eating, and things went well there. The tracking also gave me a motivational push to do some meditation today.

Going forward, I think this will be a useful tool.
