Why aren’t people healthier, happier, more enlightened, and more fulfilled?
One of the critical pieces of the answer to why comes down to the importance of action and the necessity of taking action.
As touched on previously, action is a critical component of successfully making change and in going beyond merely accumulating knowledge. Through action, knowledge moves from a state of storage into a state of being.
However, even while knowing this, sometimes taking action can prove tough.
As a result, in addition to appreciating the fact that taking action is essential, gaining even a cursory idea of the ways action impacts us is useful.
(By having a broader understanding of the way action impacts us, it can be a bit easier to remind ourselves of its importance, and thus feel a bit more motivated.)
