Having v. Using

Have you ever had a problem that you just can’t seem to fix? Maybe the issue isn’t having the right information, maybe the issue is application.

We spent all last Saturday working in the yard. Bret was mowing the dandelions grass, while avoiding mounds left by moles while I was pulling weeds out of the cracks in the driveway. During this fun activity, I got to thinking about how much work it is to take care of our yard.

When we moved in 2 years ago, we promptly bought weed killer / fertilizer for the yard, mole killer and cement crack filler. Why then are we still having to deal with this? The answer is embarrassingly simple – all those yard miracles are sitting on the shelves of the shed, completely unused.

Although we have the answer to our lawn problems, we haven’t taken the time to use them. In reality, it would take less time to use them and then never have to deal with the problems again, but for some strange reason, we never have. So, we have weeds, moles and cracks while the solutions sit like trophies in the shed, mocking us every time we go out to work in the yard.

Lest you judge us too harshly, do you ever do the same thing? Do you read blogs like this one, attend seminars or buy books to help you improve your life … but don’t apply what you’ve learned. It's not enough to have information, you must use it for it to work! Click To Tweet

I think it’s about time to start using what we know so we can see real life change!
