Half the battle, sure.

If you’re about my age (on the Gen X / Gen Y border) you grew up hearing that “knowing is half the battle.” Well, that may be true, but certainly it’s the easier half of the battle.

I know how to do all sorts of stuff.  I know how to eat healthy, exercise, and set up triangles from the guard. I know how to train dogs to stay out of the trash.  I know how to cut the grass and take the trash to the dump.

But surely in all those years someone should have mentioned that knowing was in fact quite easy, and that the other half of the battle – execution – was at least as important and much more difficult.
