Just registered to this bored.
I can empathize with the knowledge gathering thing, and looking for how to even begin to apply said knowledge into ones life.
I went for years, making changes by quitting, first negative things, like smoking/drinking, etc...but it never seemed to really change my life any, even though NOT doing these things is better for me. But, I finally started to try the other route. Implementing things INTO my life, instead of elemenating things.
1. Going for a walk.
2.Saying my prayers/intentions on a regular basis.
3.Sitting in SILENCE, actively. (As oppossed to watching TV.)
4.Joining in on the MDI.
5.Saving my change in a jar.
6.Paying my bills on time.
7.Putting together a Get-out-debt-plan, and actively working it.
These are just some small examples, but over the years, I've noticed a pretty good over-all change in my life circumstances.
Not yet where I want to be, but I can see how far I've come. Still, when I think a further change needs to be made, I end up automatically looking for things to eliminate in my life, and soon I notice that, and start to actively look for positive things to bring into my life instead.
I think Steve mentioned in one of his articles that it's not enough to just eliminate a negative. That's all well and good, but to bring in a positive substitute, helps to fill the gap.
Steve's site was an answer to a seeking of implemental knowledge, for me. Many things I could do, RIGHT NOW!
