Book 2 Action (B2A)
If you read a self-help book that has good advice you need to take action on its suggestions.
Action can tell you something about your goals. Was it enjoyable, painful? How did going for the goal make your feel? Overwhelmed? Happy? When reading a book make a list of actions to take. Prioritize the list, and take the first action. If you're having trouble deciding on an action then just randomly select one and do it. Create two lists of small actions and big actions. Work on the small actions to get the ball rolling. Once you get that momentum going you will be hard to stop.
Taking a small action is better than no action. Any action can create momentum. Believe that a small actions can help. Imagine yourself taking one small action you need to take.
You've already taken action. You acquired this book, you're reading this chapter.
