In our previous post, we said action means acting on the INFORMATION you have. And as we’ve discussed sometimes in the past, information is what keeps you in the formation because it keeps you IN FORM as it FORMS what is IN you that makes you YOU.
There are two main sources of information but we will look into one now and talk about the other in the next post. What is the first main source of information?
KNOWLEDGE! What is knowledge? This is an information you source out from a book, prerecorded audio or video, seminar, conference, school, an incident you saw, experiences or something you learn from someone personally.
One thing common to this source of information is that they all feed a man from the outside, they are based on what a man sees or hears. Having said that, let’s breakdown the word knowledge itself.
KNOWLEDGE is what you KNOW that gives you a Leading EDGE over others. It is an information you have access to which some people don’t. For instance you know how to ride a bicycle through learning, that automatically gives you an edge over those who don’t know how to. You know how to bake cakes through knowledge, that gives you an edge over your clients which is why most of them patronize you.
There’s a popular saying that “No knowledge is a waste”, as simple as it sounds it is true. A day will come that the knowledge you acquired years ago which seems so irrelevant is what will give you an edge over your peers or those you’re training or leading.
It is good to be knowledgeable in so many things but remember, acting on those information is what makes all the difference. Now that you know a source of information which is about you leveraging on things already discovered by others, what are you going to do with the information you’ve gotten from this writeup?
Remember, knowledge should give you an edge.
