Wisdom without Action is Wasted

“Knowledge is NOT power. Knowledge is only POTENTIAL power. The execution of knowledge is where your power lies. Knowledge is not mastery. Execution is mastery. Execution will trump knowledge every day of the week.” Tony Robbins

The best strategies in the world will not help you if you don’t execute them. The world is full of highly intelligent and knowledgeable people that don’t accomplish anything. Their ideas are never implemented. Their plans never executed.

Reading, learning, and planning are great, but without execution they are meaningless. Reading a great book and becoming excited about what you learned is only the beginning. You must find a way to execute on the ideas.

I recommend you read a great book over and over again until you have sucked every bit of useful information out of it. True learning occurs through repetition. “It is frequent repetition that produces a natural tendency.” Aristotle

Don’t fall into the trap of reading a lot of books but failing to apply what you have learned from any of them. It is better to read one book, highlight it, re-read it until repeatedly until applying it is smooth and natural. Repetition leads to mastery. “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” Bruce Lee

“Repetition is the mother of learning, the father of action, which makes it the architect of accomplishment.”  Zig Ziglar
