“The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.” - Albert Einstein

Is your where you want it to be? I'm guessing not, because you are showing up to this website looking for something. But should you be looking for more ideas, information and knowledge. Or should you be looking for ways to implement, accountability and ways to create action-focused habits?
