I get asked a lot of questions. The subject of many questions isn’t even what the person really wants. I’ll decipher for you here.
Information: Information is endless. Some new information was published in the time it took you to read this sentence. So if a person is asking for information, 1) Google knows more than any human being, and 2) this person will always have a built-in excuse to not take action – there’s more information to seek and review!
Advice: Every time I get asked for advice, the person asking me has already figured out his options and decided on one. Advice is this person’s way of having his decision confirmed, giving him a scapegoat if things don’t go as planned.
So many people will never escape the information/advice matrix. Which is an opportunity for you: Start. Now.

Decide on something and start doing it. You don’t have to know what to do. You don’t even need to do it well. But you must do it. Here’s why:
- Knowledge > Information. Learning by doing is more valuable than learning by watching, hearing or reading.
- Momentum. Once you get moving with action, it’s that much easier to keep going. The longer you wait to take action, momentum builds for you too: The momentum of inaction.
- Less competition. The best programs, books, blogs and videos in the world are all stuck in people’s heads. No consumer will ever experience those non-creations, and that’s a damn shame. The good news for you, self-starter, is you can step in and take the money off the table. While those people think about it and seek more advice, you can do what they’re afraid to do: Just start.
