Don’t fall for mediocrity

The big reality is that everything you know existed in public domains years before you were born, and you have access to it because of that.

Your quick assimilation of the material does not imply that others will or not have received the same information.

Because of your observation lens based on your knowledge stack, you start to become critical at some point, and this can prevent you from evolving and becoming the best version of yourself.

Knowledge is still just a sliver of data in a brain filled with firing synapses. Wisdom, on the other hand, is the conduct of custodians in preserving the optimum use of knowledge.

This suggests that knowledge is available to the public, but wisdom is held by caretakers. The bad news is that custodians can share with whomever they want.

And keep in mind that the more you learn, the more there is to learn. A entire bundle of wisdom can never be possessed by a single person. That is why specialization exists. And your rewards are determined by your mastery of a key specialization.

As a result, be wary of those custodians who may be keeping your next wisdom breakthrough bucket hidden from you.

To get more, share, learn, and be humble.
