Knowledge is only potential power

Enjoy doing what you know you can excel.

People, with rare exceptions, do not fail because they lack knowledge, education or talents. They fail chiefly because of what they do not do.

"The great end of life is not knowledge but action." - Thomas H. Huxley

What we need around here is not more "knowing" but more "doing"... not more knowledge, but more action. A sure sign of progress is: quit reading and start doing - taking action.

Knowing is not enough; So ensure you use what you had acquired!

Hi a2z,

To tell you the truth, only this couple of years I begin to understand that "Knowledge is not power" but rather "Knowledge is only potential power".

I had been acquiring skills, books, software, etc. but did not really make use of them fully. Hope this post could enlighten others who maybe having the same wrong message and remind myself the importance of application.
