We freaking love information.
Sometimes we’re bombarded with it unintentionally.
Gossip, advertisements, notifications, and what not.
Often, we seek it out.
It might be news.
We can’t stop checking our channel or website of choice.
We’re always waiting to see the latest, breaking, news.
It might be social media.
We can’t stop scrolling our feeds.
We want to see what our friends – real or digital – have been up to.
It might be fitness and nutrition knowledge.
What do the latest studies say on carbs, fat, protein, ketosis, intermittent fasting, or whatever?
We want to make sure that whatever we do is 100% up to do.
It might be vocational or business-related.
The latest and greatest marketing and sales techniques.
We want everything we do to be just right.
Whatever it is, we can’t stop seeking more information.
We keep planning.
We just have to know.
What we missed.
What’s going on.
What people are saying.
Are you stuck in this pattern?
Have you ever considered if this is actually serving you?
Do you need more information?
How will knowing more change what you do?
What are you doing with what you already know?
Often, it’s not information we need.
It’s doing what we can with what we have.
Acknowledging that every moment is fleeting.
Every moment spent “preparing” is a moment we may not be fully living.
There’s a balance to be struck, of course.
Particularly if you’re one who enjoys learning.
Or when you must learn new skills to live your best life.
The acquisition of knowledge is nothing without the application.
At some point, we apply what we learn.
That’s when things get real.
When life starts.
When we’re challenged to “do”.
It’s scary, for sure.
But, oh, so rewarding.
Are you stuck in a pattern of seeking more information?
When will you start doing?
You’ve got this.
