Using knowledge

A 358 page book advocating a specific diet needs only seven bullet-points to summarize how to actually follow the diet.  A 450-page book on mindfulness meditation contains four bullet-points outlining how to perform the meditation.

99% of self-help “knowledge” is comprised of arguing the case for “why”.  Less than 1% is dedicated to the directives (the “how”).

The challenge for those of us who are intellectually curious and always consuming, is to ensure we convert learning to action by answering “how will I use this for myself or others?”

Knowledge is NOT power, applying it is.
