Information, it’s everywhere you turn. I guess it’s to be expected in the information age.
By my definition an information junkie is someone who gets a high from new knowledge. In and of itself learning new things is a natural desire most of us humans have. It’s when that new knowledge gets shoved into a corner of your mind until it fades away, without ever having been put to use, that you become an information junkie.
You’ve just acquired new information for the high, and have become what I call an action slacker. Again by my definition, an action slacker is someone who does not put the new information they sought, to use. By not putting it to use, and allowing it to fade away, you’ve wasted your time.
There is not much hope of curing an information junkie, however there is a cure for action slackers, put your new information into use, act on it. You will never reach your marketing goals by just acquiring new information and never putting it into action.
How many programs, courses, books, videos, etc. have you spent your resources i.e., time and money, on, just to end up on a shelf or the corner of your mind. If you fail to put that new information into action, it’s just been a total waste.
Now if you have an abundance of time and money to waste, then, aren’t you the fortunate one. I would venture to say, the majority of us are not in that position though.
So, think about it, are you an information junkie or action slacker, do you want to kick the habit?
To your success…
