How do you absorb Steve's teachings?
I've read most of Steve's articles. But not all. I'm mostly interested in the ones that resonate best with me of course.
Recently though, I had found myself reading 5 articles a day, with the thirst of absorbing them all and using them all at once.
Not the most effective idea for me.
The topics jumble up in my head and when I put them together, they fade into a fuzzy picture. A shadowy concept of the specific idea.
So I created my own certain method to maximize the value I get from his blog entries. It's designed to make sure that I implement each one in any way that happens my direction.
I pick one blog entry and dedicate the ideals in that entry over the span of one entire week. This means with everything I do, I think back on the particular entry and see what aspects of it I can apply to whatever is happening at the time. At least once every day of the week, I will go back over the entry to keep it fresh in my mind.
Also, in combination, I take The Journal, with Steve's templates, choose one template that matches the current week's blog entry, fill it out and apply what I have answered it with in conjunction, throughout the current week.
This conditions me to fully absorb all the entries that I resonate with most one at a time.
Now that I've shared mine, what kind of methods do you use to keep Steve's teachings in mind?

I am traveling in metro and bus to work and back around 3 hours a day, so all this time is dedicated to reading Steve's articles. Normally I print out whole month and then just read. Some how most of the articles do not reflect to me but some of them just exactly what I need, so I just read, some time highlight, and then on other side of paper write short notes. Next morning I coolect notes and put them to my action list, or schedule. Instead of carefull study every article I am going to pass through them many times, as my life change and certainly I need different advises to apply.

I'm sure this will be a controversial post on his own forums... but oh well,
several years ago I found his website and read most of his blog (that existed at that time). There was a long period of time... several years, where i lost focus on personal development. When, several years later, I looked at his blog again... the main thing i noticed was how much is related to money... specifically money for him.
I noticed lots of "try (buy) this product" stuff and his personal seminars (crazy expensive) and such. Anytime I feel someone is trying to sell me something, a red flag goes up, and I start to scrutinize.
Overall, my current position is something like: There is definitely SOME good that I can get and have gotten from SOME of his free stuff, and I like the FREE exchange of ideas amongst patrons of the site... But with all the money he is trying to (and probably succeeding at) making off of this site, I try not to put too much weight on his "teachings".
For the amount of money that he should have made by this point in time, and with his personal goals (something like: grow and help others grow, if i remember correctly) I would think he could be doing a lot more FREE good. I'm sure someone who makes so many thousands of dollars a month passively off of this website could host FREE seminars, and really try to do some good in the world without requiring monetary compensation.
But here we are... in reality... where money is interlaced in all the workings of society.
Anyway, just my 2 cents... take em or leave em
