Knowledge is worth nothing if it is not being used.
I saw this in a newsletter I get, and it hit me like a ton of bricks.
I am an avid seeker of knowledge. To me there is nothing more fun than learning new facts, and I am interested in almost everything.
Am I using it?
Well certainly not most of it. Wow. That certainly puts things in a new light. Seeking knowledge is good, yes, but seeking knowledge for its own sake is worthless. Only when that knowledge is put to use can it become wisdom.
Yes, wisdom… that is what I really should be seeking, isn’t it?
Yeah, I knew that.
