Knowledge + Action = Power. The more you know & apply in your chosen field, the more money you’ll earn. There are so many tools at your disposal: Books, blogs, courses, audio learning and insightful conversations with people who are experts in your chosen field, who know more than you do at this point in your career. If you want to grow, make this the year that you commit to learn. But learning is not enough. Make sure you apply these findings, experiment with them, and tweak them as you go. That’s where the real power lies. Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.” He went onto say that the ability to think is much more valuable that the accumulation of facts to be stored in the brain.
