We’ve all heard this phrase, but until Knowledge is applied, it has zero valve, only once you’ve taken the time to apply this does it become powerful.
I’m going to share my easy ways to put all your knowledge into practice – and gain the real-life experience that counts.
- When you spread the word, you’re not only introducing others to a new topic, but you’re also reminding yourself of what you’ve learned. Every time you repeat it, you’re reminding yourself. The more you tell others, the more likely you’ll remember it. The more you remember it, the greater the chance that you’ll put the ideas into action.
- Take notes, on what you read is a great way to commit ideas to memory and to gain a better understanding of them.
- Make a list and add the action you want to take to your To Do list, or schedule time on your calendar to focus on your new course of action. Putting it in writing will make it more concrete and make it more likely that you’ll actually follow through.
- Take Action add it to your daily or, at the very least, weekly routine. Take action first thing in the morning if you can to make sure that you don’t end up putting it off later in the day. If you make your action part of your routine, you’ll be a lot more likely to stick with it.
- Keep learning about the topic. The more you learn about a subject, the more space it takes up in your mind. (I’m not sure if this is a fact, but it seems to be that way in my experience.) The more space something takes up in your mind, the harder it is to forget about it. Therefore, it’s best to keep learning more about what you want to be knowledgeable about. The more you learn, the more you’ll think, and the more likely you’ll put these thoughts into action.
How do you take what you’ve learned and put that knowledge into action?
