Why Learning Isn’t EVERYTHING!

๐ŸŒŸย ITโ€™S NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU INGEST, BUT WHAT YOU DIGEST!ย ๐ŸŒŸ

โ€œIโ€™ve read 100 books on the subject!โ€ย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

โ€œI have 5 Certifications!โ€ย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

โ€œI have 3 Masters Degrees!โ€ย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

Having expertise in a subject is without a doubt important. Like we wouldnโ€™t want toddlers performing open heart surgery or dogs flying helicopters, right?!ย ๐Ÿคฃ

But what Iโ€™m getting at is just because someone learns a lot doesnโ€™t automatically mean they know more.ย ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

๐Ÿ“Œย You can read hundreds of books on a subject, yet never use what you read.

๐Ÿ“Œย You can earn a certification, yet not remember the very information which got you certified in the first place.

๐Ÿ“Œย You can go to college and receive a degree, yet never use the skills you developed.

Let me ask you a question: for all the school tests you ever took, how much information from the tests do you remember?ย ๐Ÿค”

80%? 50%? Nothing?! Youโ€™re not alone!ย ๐Ÿ˜…

๐ŸŒŸย ITโ€™S NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU INGEST, BUT WHAT YOU DIGEST!ย ๐ŸŒŸ

Itโ€™s not about how much you know; itโ€™s about how much you use. Itโ€™s not about the amount of information you receive; itโ€™s about what you use with the information you receive.ย ๐Ÿ™Œ

Itโ€™s the reason why Iโ€™ll read the same book twice, why Iโ€™ll listen to an online course multiple times, why Iโ€™ll re-read notes from seminars Iโ€™ve attended.ย ๐Ÿ“š

Because I can assure you: unless you have a photographic memory, you donโ€™t retain every piece of information you learn just from hearing it once.ย ๐Ÿ‘

You donโ€™t lift a few weights at the gym and suddenly are fit for life. You need to keep going back to the gym to maintain the muscles youโ€™ve already built.ย ๐Ÿ‹๏ธ

And the same goes for your mental muscles. You need to keep learning and building on what you’ve already learned. Otherwise, like a muscle, it deteriorates.ย ๐Ÿง 

Repetition and application are keys!ย ๐Ÿ”‘

๐ŸŒŸย ITโ€™S NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU INGEST, BUT WHAT YOU DIGEST!ย ๐ŸŒŸ

After all, why do you think I keep repeating this same sentence over and over again?ย ๐Ÿ˜‰
