The quote below captures for me a great perspective with the significance of applying what you are learning. To read a book and hold it all in your own head initiates no change, facilitates no value, and offers no hope for impact. The learning and the teaching of what was learned is of little value if never applied into experience.
Apply what you are learning, there are millions of resources filled with connectable and transferrable resources to make a difference. As you grow with your capacity to teach others what you have learned, insure that they apply for experience as well. The student determines the value derived from what they have learned and what they will carry forward into other experiences.
“You can teach a person all you know, but only experience will convince him that what you say is true.” — Richelle E. Goodrich —
