I knew there had to be a word for this.
I mean there’s a word for everything right?
And here it is in all it’s glory:
I’ve suffered from it, and you probably do to.
In fact depending on who’s research you believe everybody’s done this at some point.
So do you know what ‘tsundoku’ means?
The clue’s in the -undo- part of the word.
The act of leaving a book unread after buying it, typically piled up together with other such unread books.
I once bought a book simply because I liked the cover.
Never even read the first page.
I know, I know you’d never do such a thing right?
Good for you.
But there’s a more extreme form of this malady that I’ve yet to find a word for.
Maybe Uber-Tsundoku would do?
It’s where people buy books, DVD’s, newsletters and every information product they can get on a subject and then do absolutely nothing thing with it.
Sadly it affects a few people in my Qigong Inner Circle. I’m not embarrassed to admit it. I just regret it and get a bit frustrated by it. Each month I spoon feed proven ways to live a happier, healthier and longer life to the group.
I make myself as available as possible to the group.
And yet a small but maddeningly consistent segment of the group don’t do anything with the information I give them or contact me to get help with their practice.
So if you know you suffer from Uber-Tsundoku please don’t waste your time and money joining us in the Inner Circle.
If you really do want to make a go of things, then now would be a really good time to join us in my Qigong Inner Circle. Because as soon as I get a spare nano-second I’m raising the price of membership.
It’s currently at $37 a month.
And many of my members are experiencing great improvements in their health and happiness as a result of their membership.
How do I know?
Because they actually ‘do stuff’ and tell me about it.
Let me leave you with this thought:
Your life is a result of what you do, not what information you’ve got lying around your house or gathering cyber dust on your hard drive.
Right, I’ve got to pick my family up from Nottingham and I need to get going.
But when I get back and finish printing off this months Qigong Inner Circle Letter I’m raising the price of membership to $45 a month.
If you’re ready, I invite you to join us here:
Bye for now
P.S. A friend sent me a link yesterday to an article called: 6 Harsh Truths That Will Make You A Better Person.
It’s not an easy read.
Especially if you’re easily offended.
So don’t say I didn’t warn you.
But if you’re like me and you welcome an occasional kick in the pants, and a big measure of truth to wake you up and keep you moving in the right direction you’ll love it:
