Theory vs. Reality (GWTW81)

Recently I’ve made some changes in my life and business, which got me thinking about all the theoretical stuff I consume—books, blogs, newsletters, tutorials—and never do anything with. In this episode of Getting Work To Work, I share some thoughts on why theory is great, but action is better. Note: I got a little passionate in this episode, so there is some swearing throughout.

Four Reasons Why Turning Theory into Reality is Important

  1. Theory is incredibly important, but it’s not enough.
  2. Untested theories will not produce any results.
  3. You’ll never know how to handle an emotion or situation until you’re knee deep in it.
  4. Make something. Anything.
