Information overload / by Tyson Pop

In his essay 'The Golden Key', Emmet Fox explains that when any of us are confronted with a difficulty, we run to books (and articles or websites) to skim their pages in an attempt to find the magic answer to the problem that we are walking through. 

That's motivation. 

The problem is that in the process of looking for an answer, we can easily become overwhelmed by all the information that we don't put any of it into practice. So rather of applying anything, we keep burying ourselves with information in the hope that the information alone will fix us. But that just doesn't work. Regardless of how much we read about playing the guitar, eventually, you have to pick one up and start strumming. 

Information will not solve your problem. 

But applying what you're learning will.
