Information is everywhere, is offered by a multitude of sources and is nearly immediately brought before us. We really don’t even need to go looking for it anymore because many sources are dutiful in putting it before you without your permission.
Some of the information might be invaluable and some useless. How do you discern the value of information? It’s important here to remember that we will only learn by doing. Be selective.
Unapplied information is of no value to us. Information lies vacant and empty until we apply the information into our own experiences. From these experiences, we will learn for ourselves what the value of the information is. From this learned point, you will then carry the lessons learned as you truly come to know more.
Be cautious of the information that you take in and then apply for yourself to learn from. It should require your permission.
“Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience. You need experience to gain wisdom.” — Albert Einstein —
