Knowledge is important, but it isn't everything. Having desire, determination, perseverance, enthusiasm, passion, and action will pull ahead of knowledge with no action. You have to want it, then act on it.
I take this exactly from W Michael Scott - Thoughts of the Day July 19, 2012.
Knowledge is important, I can't stress that enough. More important, however, is what we do with that knowledge. We know all too many people who were super smart and know much more than we could ever hope to. Unfortunately, all is lost because they did nothing with it.
This message is, like many, simple but critical. We must have the desire, the determination, the perseverance, enthusiasm and passion to take action on that knowledge and put it to good use. Otherwise, what good is it? Knowledge gained but never used will be lost forever.
Have a great week.
