The Expanding Map of Knowledge and Ignorance

You are a student of life for life. Your knowledge is expanding, but so is your ignorance, for as you continue to learn, there will always be so much more for you to further explore. 

Why you should create your own map:

  • It helps you identify your knowledge gaps in the areas that actually matter to you
  • It highlights your strengths. The closer you are to mastery, the more strengths you have in the specific area of discussion.
  • It gives you a holistic view of where you stand today so you can phase out the steps for what’s ahead.
