…it’s a question of whether you need the knowledge.
Sometimes we base our choice of what to learn about by what interests us, but actually to succeed in our goals, we need to learn about what’s necessary, even if it isn’t very interesting.
Many worthwhile goals have lots of necessary but not sufficient conditions for success. We need to get all of these in place before the desired result will occur. Until then nothing much happens.
Some of the conditions for success might be boring, tedious, painful, difficult, complicated, inconvenient, expensive, or embarrassing to establish.
Too bad, unfortunately.
If they’re necessary, we need them.
