The knowing-doing gap

Too many people know what to do and don’t do it because of the core function of the brain, which seeks your comfort over your advancement.

A good way to overcome the self-sabotage that happens when you procrastinate or don’t follow through with a commitment to yourself is to sincerely ask what you are losing by delaying to act.

If you can sincerely answer this question, you’ll act. You see, if the perceived pain is more than your present comfort, the knowing-doing gap will close.
