In business you don’t learn something as a hobby: you learn to improve your results.
Knowledge must not remain theory: it must be used.
Otherwise it’s just an intellectual exercise. A rewarding pleasure, but without any economic return.
Moreover, hobbies cost…
…while the knowledge of those who deal with business must not be an investment, but a tool to generate profit.
But then even the famous expression “knowledge is power” is not true?
Not exactly, and certainly it’s always been a good incentive to know. But it’s a half-truth. And it risks being misleading.
In order to give power, in fact, knowledge alone is not enough: we need to move from theory to practice.
If you don’t APPLY what you have learned, if you don’t use it, you won’t get anywhere.
