The Curse of Curiosity and an Endless Supply of Information

by Ryan M. Healy on March 26, 2013

Us humans are strange little creatures.

We’re curiouser than kids in a zoo. We want to know all kinds of stuff. And secrets we’ve not been let in on practically make us crazy with the desire to know.

But once we know — once we discover the secret — we’re not much interested in using the knowledge. The itch has been scratched, the curiosity quenched, so we’re on to the next thing.

This is mostly a curse of living in the 21st Century. So much information at our fingertips… so little time to apply it. Now there are multitudes who know, yet only a few who do.

Whenever you’re learning how to do something new, make a point to begin implementing your new-found knowledge right away.

Knowledge that’s not used has a tendency to be forgotten. Knowledge that is used is retained, plus you derive immediate value from its application.

How much are you learning? How much are you applying?

If you’re too lopsided, even out the scales.

You’ll feel better. You’ll live better, too.
