Books can be da…

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!
