Admittedly, I really didn't use the forum too often. There were a few times that I found great advice about SBI and books to read, like "Millionaire Fastlane" from other forum members. I was very grateful for these recommendations from like-minded individuals.
I get the most value, though, from Steve's blog articles. Keep 'em comin'!
I think when you have so many different opinions and agendas in one place, it's hard to make all of that into a cohesive "whole". When a forum deals with just one type of thing, like a piece of software, for example - Adobe Photoshop, then the forum posts can easily be kept on track. They either deal with real objective functions of the software, or they don't.
Personal development, though, seems to have so many different aspects and avenues to go down. I wonder how much of it is subjective and how much is objective?
Well... anyway... I'm rambling here, so I'll just end by saying "Thank you" to all the members who posted good solid advice that helped me to get steered in the right direction.
