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.

A Week of Feelin' Good

On Joshua Thomas

This week I cut out fried food entirely from my diet, and the effect has been astonishing. My energy levels and mood are through the roof, and my stomach is feeling amazing.

It's a little difficult to keep up, but my diet is very simple so I generally eat the same thing every day.

The change came after listening to a podcast in which Sebastian Marshall described his system of self-tracking. I've been self-tracking to a limited half-assed extent for a long time, but the lack of scientific rigor was just not there.. even for a 1-subject-study. I upped my standards, began isolating my studies instead of mixing them, and I'm getting a lot from it.

I'll write more on my self-tracking method in a future post! Right now I want to utilize this newfound energy 8)
