Learn and understand

Sometimes learning can feel like a chore. Sometimes it seems that learning is just the mundane, yet necessary thing you must do before you undertake whatever it is you really want to do.

Yet learning is much more than that. In additional to showing you what action to take, learning also can significantly increase the effectiveness of that action.

Learning is not merely an obligatory step on the path to action. Learning has a value all its own, a value that lasts long after you’ve completed whatever it was that compelled you to learn in the first place.

Learning not only enables you to know what and how. It also provides you the opportunity to understand why.

Understanding why can add enormous value and effectiveness to anything you do. When you have a solid grasp of the fundamental concepts behind your actions, you give the power of purpose to those actions.

Leverage the energy of your efforts. Learn so that you can do, and so that you will understand.
