A Bit of Friday Reading: Getting into the Action Habit

As I was surfing admittedly random Web sites this morning, I came across this article on the self-help Web site on how to get into “the habit of putting ideas into action now,” as the article’s author and Web site editor Erin Falconer puts it.
