… as opposed to what you know about.
It’s one thing to know about something, quite another to know a subject and be able to deploy it in life. Unless you can do (or be) something, you don’t know it, not really. There’s a world of a difference between knowing your purpose and knowing about purpose, for example.
This comes up with books—a great change resource if used properly…
Sometimes people ask me to post a summary of a book I’ve read for them to access, as if that’ll achieve the same effect. And sometimes, I’m offered summaries by other people.
It would be handy if you could radically cut the time invested and still get the same result, and change by just as much.
You can know about something from a summary, but you can’t truly know it.
The best books take you on a journey of learning. You’re changed by the process of reading from cover to cover. Your unconscious mind accepts new patterns. As a result, you live what you’ve learned, and achieve the corresponding results.
Changing what you know about isn’t the same as changing what you know.
A summary most likely won’t change what you know. Skip the reading and you skip the change.
What do you know about and what do you really know? And how do you tell the difference?
(I think a clue is one’s a head thing and the other’s a whole body experience.)
