We get a great sense of achievement when we have gone through a process of learning something new especially when we really understand it. The infusion of that knowledge could easily deceive us into thinking we have accomplished something. However, there is a huge gap between what we learn and the actions we take to produce results based on that knowledge.
I came across a quote that captured this reality. “You should know now that a man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting, nor by thinking about what he will think when he has finished acting.” – Carlos Castaneda.
The purpose of learning is it to take action, action that will take you to a better place than you were before you learnt a new thing.
Adopt this principle of learning-action in everything you do.
