Knowledge is power. Knowledge can also be a trap. Because we can be delighted learning new things we can be trapped into learning for learning's sake.
Now, it is countercultural to suggest that knowledge is wrong, especially when ignorance is so bad for the world and us, within it. But it is also true that we have limited time to be effective and the distractions we work with only increase in number. Within that environment our learning has to be targeted. The more targeted it is the greater the depth and precision of our skillset becomes. This gives us confidence. Confidence changes our perspective.
We then learn to act differently.
Learn with purpose.
