Even though this post is about blogging, it applies to any project or business you undertake. Most people want to do more. In fact, they get advice and usually think “wow, that’s really good advice” and then do nothing. As the post points out, you actually have to actively apply good advice in order to benefit from it.
Maybe it has something to do about the price of the acquired knowledge. This part is particularly well stated:
“That’s the ironic part. If you had had to pay for this advice — if you had laid a cool three grand on the table and received this marketing plan in return — you would damn sure have put at least some of it into action.”
I guess I need to get my act together and start applying all this great advice.
