Develop rare and valuable skills by immediately implementing what you’re learning.
Apply what you’re learning better than anyone else. The difference between wisdom and knowledge is that wisdom must be earned through experience. Wisdom implies understanding, which very few people have. Only those with concrete experience and a higher-level perspective understand. You can’t understand something if you don’t live it. Theoretical knowledge or a treasure trove of information won’t do you much good if you don’t know how to apply it. The only way to get good at applying something is to constantly learn, document, teach, create, tinker, play, fail, and sell.
“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.”- Pablo Picasso.
