10 Simple Truths Smart People Forget

By Mark Chernoff

Some of the smartest people I know continuously struggle to get ahead because they forget to address a few simple truths that collectively govern our potential to make progress. So here's a quick reminder:

#1 – Education and intelligence accomplish nothing without action.

It doesn't matter if you have a genius IQ and a PhD in Quantum Physics, you can't change anything or make any sort of real-world progress without taking action. There's a huge difference between knowing how to do something and actually doing it. Knowledge and intelligence are both useless without action. It's as simple as that. For some practical guidance on taking action, I highly recommend The Now Habit.
