Make knowledge Powerful – Intended Lesson For This Map
To understand that, while consuming knowledge is important, it’s not enough. The real power of knowledge comes from doing something with what you learn – taking action on it!
Key Ideas On This Map
Knowledge Without Action Is WorthlessIf
You learn something valuable, and you don’t do something with it – change how you think or what you do, then consuming that knowledge was largely pointless.
Do I need more information or more implementation?
Not getting the results you want? Ask yourself: Is my challenge that I don’t know what to do, or is it that I know what to do, but I’m just not taking action on it? Implementing a single idea can have a greater impact on your life than simply knowing to ideas that you never do anything with.
Living It Daily (bottom of page)
A bookshelf full of books where you’ve captured key ideas (underlining or highlighting words and phrases, or taking notes) does not mean you’re doing something with what you learn. It means you’re good at capturing ideas. Take those ideas and actually start using them in your life – that’s what truly makes the difference in the learning experience.
