Have you ever eaten a fruit salad that contained tomato as one of the ingredients? Have you ever encountered someone who knew a whole lot of information but didn’t know what to do with all their knowledge?
The purpose of knowledge is action.
Without taking action, knowledge simply becomes more knowledge. If you are accumulating knowledge just for the sake of knowing it, what impact are you making?
Reading a book can give you great input and expand your knowledge base. However, reading thirty books and hoarding the knowledge fails in comparison to reading one book thirty times and implementing the knowledge into action.
As chiropractors, business owners, and community thought leaders it is better for us to be an inch wide and a mile deep instead of being a mile wide and only an inch deep.
I’ve seen this truth applicable when dealing with doctors and the techniques they choose. Every time, it’s better to take action and master one or two techniques than it is to accumulate the knowledge of all of them.
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom, is knowing not to put tomato in a fruit salad.
