Why courses doesn't work (so ideally)

Useful towelwrite it down ... notebook and penHave you ever attended a course for a day, a weekend or even whole week? Do you remember how enthusiastic you were about the techniques which seemed to be a gateway to a new prosperous life? But then a month later you realized that you use tricks from the course less and less that you probably forgot half of the techniques you learned. There are two main reason why it happened:
Firstly you lost motivation. Everything seemed so easy in the inspiring environment among people who were on the same wave. When you got home you still felt exited about what you learned however each day ordinary routine took off all the magic piece by piece. That is why so many people can make profit creating more and more courses. On the other hand all these courses provide great benefit because each refreshes your motivation.
Courses are great for motivating you.
More importantly however: you learned too much. There are usually so many things and tricks you learn that you can grasp only one or two which you really can build into your life. If you try, enthusiastic as you are, to try all of them you don't have enough time to really understand and get into the core. It's said that it takes three weeks or a month to change a habit and learn it to the bone. When you try something for a day and then switch to explore the next skill you can sooner of later forget both. 
Just pick what you like and implement it in your life. The rest will appear again when you will need it.
The solution is easy - try just one thing. Read or get a training about it for just few minutes and spend hours thinking and trying it. The next day try a bit more of the theory to get inspired and fuel your excitement and again try to implement it in your life. This way is slower, but it can help you to really acquire the knowledge. One stone brick will last longer than ten stairs of card dome.
Clemens Kuby mentioned it in one of his books: "whenever I go to a self-development or any kind of course, I don't try to capture everything. I'm examining which part I react to and then try to understand my feelings and its message. It proved to be much better than to try to make all the notes while not having time to live any of it."
