I’ve spent time in my life talking about the books I’ve read and all these amazing things that will turn me into a superstar.
The thing is, reading is one thing, applying it is another.
Knowledge is only power when we choose to apply it and keep applying it 100%.
Learning is essential as a person in all aspects of life. Learning comes from creating experiences, from the act of doing something and producing an outcome.
It also comes from reading, observing, from all sorts of different sources. Although the best learning comes from doing things ourselves.
However, learning in itself is not enough. Simply learning does not ensure that you will not repeat an outcome.
What ensures that you will not repeat an outcome, that you were not happy with, is to apply the learning.
Yesterday I asked ‘what did you learn today?’, well now today the question to ask is, what did you apply?
If we do not apply learning, then learning has little real value.
