For me, it's all about reflection. It's about moving through your day to the best of your ability and then spending a few minutes in the evening reflecting on the day's events; what worked and what you'll do differently when the sun rises tomorrow. This easier said than done, but try not to judge yourself. Just reflect, and move on!

One of the things I've discovered, Dani, is that the Universe has a way of putting me right smack dab in the middle of a situation where the knowledge I've just been learning about can be given a practical application. It's REMARKABLY GOOD at doing this! :)

Maybe that's one of the tips I would give: Simply look for the places in your life where this knowledge can already be applied ... and then start applying.

The other tip would be to take baby steps. Rather than trying to apply ALL of the knowledge we're taking in (and finding defeat) sometimes it's better and easier to focus on just applying one thing, getting good at it, and then adding another. I've found that this has really helped me.

Anyway, thank you for another lovely post and for being so honest about yourself. It's nice to know someone else has similar struggles as me. :)

Enjoy your well-deserved holiday in Florida. Will look forward to you being back.

Michelle - What a a great point you bring up about reflection. We should all strive to do the best we can, reflect on what we've done, and then move on.

Chania Girl - Excellent point about looking for the places in your life where the knowledge can be applied. Sometimes it really is just about paying attention to what's happening around you. I'm glad you enjoyed the post! :)

They way that i take what i've learned and put it into action is simply by writing it down. Then breaking it down into small simple steps until it becomes a daily habit. Then after doing that for awhile it comes easily.

Hi Dani,
The best thing about having a blog is when you tell others what you're planning on doing, they keep you accountable! I've found my blog a great way of doing all of the things you've suggested above, and also a fantastic way of discovering like-minded people who want you help you put your plan into action! I love these simple tips!

Love the quote and your associated thoughts. I agree, knowledge is key to developing our wisdom. Much of what I read unlocks that which is within me which helps me to grow.
I like you write about what I learn and remember from within.

Have fun in the sun!

Great rundown -- I think continuous learning is the key. Test yourself, learn and respond. It's a learning loop.

Josten - Writing it down does help quite a bit, as does breaking it down into small steps. All of those small steps add up quickly!

Topi - That's so true! When you tell people what you're doing, you're much more accountable for your actions. That's one of the best things about blogging!

Mark - Thank you! I'm glad you liked this post. Like you, I find that what I read really helps to enhance the person I already am and helps me to put my own ideas into action. I'll definitely be enjoying the sunshine!

J.D. - Thanks! Continuous learning is definitely so, so important. Love the idea you brought up of a "learning loop." Great concept!

1. Tell someone else what you learned.

I think thats why I love blogging so much. It realy gives me a chance to share what I've been reading.

have fun in Florida, Dani !

As the Dalai Lama spoke to you...you have spoke to me. Present moment awareness knowlege is one thing and the practice is another.Good for you Dani!. Another inspiring post!


Rocky - I agree with you there. Blogging really does give us a chance to share what we've learned with others. Florida was awesome!

Derrick - I'm so glad this post spoke to you. It's definitely important to have the knowledge, but it's just as important to put it into practice. Glad this inspired you!
