The Action Course

Learning the Art of Doing

Reading is an important part of my life. It sustains, energizes, and shapes me in ways nothing else can. Yet, with a certain breed of book, I find myself wanting a way to integrate the ideas into my life more deeply. It feels like the author is leaving me hanging. I didn't want anyone feeling this way after reading The Pocket Guide to Action: 116 Meditations on the Art of Doing - especially since the book's about taking action.

Thus The Action Course was born!

The course is a collection of high-potency tools for improving the way you see and operate in the world. They don't require you buy into hype. Like any good tool, they just require use.

Each section builds on an important idea in The Pocket Guide to Action and culminates in an exercise.

These exercises will get the ideas active within you. This is what's so effective about the course. Instead of downloading a bunch of new data, you'll be programming your own operating system.

The posture we need now is impossible to achieve through reading alone. We need to engage. Viscerally feeling our ideas in action is the only path to sanity or effectiveness in times like this.

I originally wrote The Pocket Guide to Action for myself because I needed to take a new posture towards the world. I created this course because I needed tools to live with this new posture more completely.

The tools and resources here continue to serve me well. They've already helped several beta testers take a more powerful posture towards life. I think you'll find similar success with the ideas here.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if the course is no good?
First of all, it's awesome. :) That being said, I don't want your money if you don't want me to have it. Just tell me you want a refund within a week of buying the course and I'll send you your money back.
How is the course different than the book?
The course takes about 20 ideas from The Pocket Guide to Action, expands them, then provides an exercise to integrate them into your life. The book focuses on giving you a new lens and helps you begin to see through it. The course focuses on installing that lens more completely.
How much time do I need?
It totally depends. Some people spend a ton of time on each lesson while some race through them. Some do a lesson a week, some try to do them all in a day. You'll naturally do what's right for you.
Do I need to have read The Pocket Guide to Taking Action to take this course?
Not at all! I originally designed the course as a companion to the book, but then some beta testers told me they were making big changes because of the course--and they hadn't read the book! I was pleasantly surprised. The book is great. One of the best. A true masterpiece. And you should read it. But you don't need the book to make this course work for you.
