The Double-Edged Sword of Learning

I’m definitely of the opinion that you should always continue learning – that you should always be seeking out new knowledge and growing.

However, constantly learning can be a double-edged sword if you don’t apply a filter.

The problem with constantly learning is that you are going to encounter lots of opinions that differ and even contradict what you are currently doing.

And while it is good to adjust your program as you learn and grow, there are also going to be times when you need to IGNORE the new information.

There are lots of different things that work and you can’t do them all…especially not all at once.

So while you want to try to incorporate the new things you learn, you must do it in a way that actually allows you to BENEFIT from all of your new knowledge.

That means not always chasing shiny new things and constantly doing the latest and greatest.

It means experimenting (aka actually giving something time to see if it works) with something new and seeing if it works and then deciding to keep it or not.

The more you learn, the more you will understand that you have to FILTER what you learn and pick and choose what to believe and apply.

While there are lots of things that work, you have to find what works for you.

All the learning in the world won’t help you get results if you don’t apply it appropriately.

While you want to continue to seek out and read new information, you need to process it for yourself.
