Books can be dangerous. The best ones should be labeled “This could change your life.” ~Helen Exley
I read this and reflect on how true this is. Particularly in the “self help”, “motivation,”and “life improvement”categories. i fully read with the utmost interest, and aha moments with the fullest intent of embarking on change, or implementing this fabulous new idea. Only to find, I sit the book down when done, and only on rare occasion do i follow through on my self promise.
This is a shame, for there are some fabulous ways to make subtle changes. I have had the most long term and lasting changes with the Big Book of AA. However, i have ventured into things newer than just recovery, that offer a multitude of ideas that are great. Am i just undisciplined, or is this something that you do as well? comments welcome!
