This has been called the ‘knowing-doing gap’.

What things are in your knowing-doing gap, and is that a useful place for them?

What happens to them in there, and what happens to you when you have things in your knowing-doing gap?

As they say on the London underground stations, “Mind the gap!

Here is more insight on why we want to do something, and four fascinating questions.

My best wishes, Paul
