Less Information. More Taking Action. — Coaching Call with Tripp Lanier

Do you have an amazing collection of books but lousy focus and discipline?

Do you get excited about new ideas but then feel bad because you don’t really do anything with them?

And what would happen if you took a break from jamming new ideas into your head?

Today’s coaching call is with a self-proclaimed personal growth junkie. He can easily spend hours pouring through books and podcasts, but when it comes to taking action it’s like pulling teeth. We take a look at why he’s leaking his energy and challenge him to reconnect with what really matters.

We join the conversation after the guest has given me a high level view of his situation.

In this conversation:

  • Being a personal development junkie
  • Wanting more focus, consistency, and discipline
  • Wasting your potential
  • Comparing yourself to others
  • Dealing with resistance


  • Learning to trust yourself
  • Wiping the slate clean
  • Reconnecting with your essence
  • Going on a “consumption diet”
  • Getting grounded
