Experientia docet

I've not had good luck with radical change; what has worked for me is to pick some thing specific, some particular mission, and working on that. Trying to flip your whole life over, all at once - well, it's kind of like trying to flip a car. Sure, if there was a fire, and your child was trapped in there, you might well have the strength of 10 queues and toss that sucker right over. However, barring you having some reason to believe that your life is on fire and someone you care about is trapped inside, I think it's better to pick a thing to start doing - once a week, every day, whatever - and work on that. Gradually, you build up to the point where you're doing all the stuff you want to do, but this approach, in my experience, makes it less insurmountable-seeming.
