Taking Action

"Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do."

When I started to collect the information needed to make healthy changes, I wanted to develop a "can do" attitude. But soon learned that a "can do" attitude is all about potential. The ability to eat well and exercise regularly didn't necessarily result in a commitment from me to take action. It wasn't until I made a shift in mind-set to a "will do" attitude that action was taken and change took place. It looks as if Goethe knew about the difference between "can do" and "will do" a couple of hundred years before I did.
