BLOGKnowledge to Action

by Randall CraigFiled in: Blog, Career Planning, Make It Happen Tipsheet, Management, Motivational

During the last seven years, this Tipsheet has focused on answering one key question: how can we as individuals translate what we learn into practical advice.  The Tipsheet content has ranged from professional success, management perspective, to digital strategy.  Whatever the topic, each week there is a call to action, often with a twist, that can help you “land” the idea airplane.

To translate the concept into action, I focused on many broad categories – here are some:

  • Break it into chunks.
  • Put it on your calendar.
  • Start right away.
  • Set a tight deadline.
  • Reward yourself on completion.
  • Ask tough questions.
  • Refocus on the how the task helps you reach a key goal.
  • Commit to yourself by writing it down.
  • Commit to others by telling them about it.
  • Get help committing from someone else. (A coach or a partner.)
  • Remove obstacles to starting.
  • Try something new: a new perspective gives new motivation.
  • Change your environment to be more productive, or just for the sake of change.


What tricks and ideas do you have to change knowledge to action?  This week, contribute your technique to us – and also to a colleague.
