The Warrior of the Mind

Psychotherapist Donald Robertson makes a very useful distinction1:

  • A librarian of the mind is someone who merely catalogs ideas that they learn in their head.
  • A warrior of the mind is someone who applies ideas that they learn on the battlefield of life.

As you explore One Percent Better, I encourage you to do it as a warrior.

Take the concepts, strategies, and protocols that resonate with you, and try them out in your own life.

It won’t be as comfortable as being a librarian, but it will make all the difference in how much value you get from the newsletter.

Because ideas are only valuable if you actually put them to use.
