Easier Said than Done

I picked up a copy of Dale Carnegie’s 352 pg bestseller, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, and immediately feared I could never finish it.

Now, two years later, my fears appear justified.

It sits on my top shelf next to War and Peace, (and the cliff notes to War and Peace), taunting me. Telling me I am a failure.

352 pages. What a fool I am. Ha!

Yes, I’m afraid my story is one of a phoenix who rose too high.

Score one for you Mr. Carnegie.

You’ll find me cowered in the basement, where I’ve been for the past two years, your book’s crumpled dust cover in my sweaty hands.

    Thus the Catch 22, a book which would free you of fear goes unread because you fear not being able to finish it.

    Too bad there’s no Post Type for Irony.

    Don’t live in the basement forever. Take the Dale Carnegie Course, it will provide you with a structure where you can apply what’s in the book. That’s how you’ll get real change to happen.

    It’s not what you know but how you apply what you know that makes a difference.

    Good luck!
