To Have Knowledge And Not To Apply It Is Not Knowing It

Confucius said “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”

By this quote he means that if you learn knowledge and do not apply it; it is equivalent of not knowing it. You cannot master a skill by just knowing about it. You must use the knowledge you attained to apply in real life, then and only then you can become a master of that skill. When you apply what you have learned then you get experience and understanding of the processes in the skill. That is only thing that matters if you want to be the master of the skill.

You can get knowledge from masters of the craft like basketball from Michael Jordan, Jeet Kun Do from Bruce Lee, stock investment from Warren Buffet, football from David Bekham and boxing from Muhammad Ali, it will not make you the master until you actually practice it.

So conclusion of this thought is it does not matter that how vast your knowledge of the subject is, only thing matters, are you applying that knowledge? To know and not to apply the knowledge is not knowing at all.

How To Master Anything

It is a simple principle. If you want to be successful in anything, you need to master the thing. If your goal is to be a heart surgeon, you need to be mastering cardiology. It does not matter what your goal is you must master the know how to be successful in that field.

Most important thing in mastering is to be mastering the basic. Basics are the fundamental blocks on which whole building of mastery stands. You should build a strong base first. Then you can build as high as your base will be able to support. As stronger the base is built, the more height for the building can be achieved. Same way more you master the basic fundamentals of anything, more mastery of that field can be attained. Set up a solid and sound foundation if you want to be master of anything.
