Bite-sized knowledge

to upgrade

your career

Ideas from books, articles & podcasts.

“When we practice something, we are involved in the deliberate repetition of a process with the intention of reaching a specific goal. The words deliberate and intention are key here because they define the difference between actively practicing something and passively learning it.”

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Practice focuses your energy on the process.

Passive learning creates knowledge. Active practice creates skills.

... but learning is not practice. Unless you apply that knowledge and make a meaningful contribution with it, passive learning is not a form of practice. 

Some of us use learning as a way to avoid doing the actual work toward reaching our goals. In this case, it becomes a form of procrastination.

New knowledge does not necessarily drive new results, especially if your goal is to make progress and not to simply gain additional knowledge.
