The philosophy of Bruce Lee, of learning as much as possible and assimilating what is useful has always been one of my goals in life. Learning can be rewarding, without one needing another reason than the pursuit of knowledge itself. Taking knowledge and using it is in the world is a powerful tool human beings possess, but simply knowing how to accomplish a task should not be enough.Finding what works best for you, and streamlining how you operate is a priceless boon that can save a lot of time and effort.

Knowing the particulars of one’s own abilities, combined with the pooled knowledge of the modern age can take one far in the world. Taking the time to master the intricacies of one’s everyday activities may seem a daunting, impossible task if one doesn’t take a measured approach to acquiring data. There can easily come a point where one is taking in too much, and thus rendered unable to remember anything beyond short-term memorization.

Truly learning something means putting into practice and actually thinking through processes, troubleshooting issues as they arise. For most activities one can engage in these days, others have likely come before you, and have much to offer those willing to take the time to listen. One is often confronted with challenges in life that can be devestating if completely unprepared, and preparation requires some research regarding just what life might throw your way. With the proper education, one can do or become whatever they might imagine.
