Theory Versus Reality

I received an email, recently, from Nightingale Conant. It read -- in part -- like this:

Well said, Yogi. There are two versions of you that exist.

There’s the “theoretical you” that exists somewhere between your wants and desires and your worthwhile intentions. Perhaps that part of you got up at five this morning and ran six miles or got to work an hour early or made a five-course dinner for your family last night.

Then there’s the “real you.” The one people see every day. The one that produces real results.

Your best advice to improve your life: Introduce the “real you” to the “theoretical you.” The more you learn from each other, the further in life you’ll go.

Good advice, don't you think?
