Take Action

We spend way too much time trying to figure ourselves out. (Steve Case, Everything Counts, 12 January)

... what keeps the so-called consumer society going is the fact that trying to find yourself through things doesn't work. The ego satisfaction is short-lived and so you keep looking for more, keep buying , keep consuming. (Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth, p. 36)

... we have considerable power to change our lives, if we are willing to use it. (One Day At A Time In Al-Anon, 21 February)

Until .... [we're] willing to take action, all the insight in the world isn't going to help. (Larsen and Hegarty, Believing in Myself, 22 February)
