Thanks for checking back in to the blog. It's been about a month since my last post, and I've had a lot going on including starting a podcast (The Iron Strong Podcast). If you haven't checked it out, do so now! We're talking about optimizing health through performance, fitness, recovery, and mindset. We have already put out 3 great episodes already.
The podcast topic brings me in to my blog topic today "Consuming vs Doing." This is a hot topic right now, and one I have been wanting to touch on. Have you ever had someone brag about reading 1 book a day for a year, but are never able to implement the ideas from the book due to moving on to the new content (yep, it happens). There are many reasons we consume content at scale. "Consuming content" can feel like your are accomplishing something, and at times is a good thing but, it is a much easier route, than performing something consistently to solve a problem.
In today's world, with the infinite amount of information on the web and consistent stream of information coming from "experts" around the globe, we are inundated with suggestions of what we "should be" doing to fix specific ailments, what diets to perform, what to do with our money, how to start a business etc.... As you all know this can be paralyzing at times and lead to inaction due to "Fear of Doing The Wrong Thing" or even worse sometimes is "Giving up on the process to Early." Has anyone ever spent hours researching Google Reviews about something like the right massage tool, and then not purchased it, only to go back several days later to research further? This is all driven by Fear of selecting the wrong one based on others suggestions
