Focus on knowledge over information
Most people acquire a lot of information but not much knowledge. That’s because it’s easy to obtain information. But acquiring knowledge takes time.
For example, reading a book or taking a course is a serious time investment that requires an actual decision. You think, “Is this worth my time?” But you don’t ask that when you grab your phone to consume random information or scroll through social media.
This leads you down a rabbit hole. And you end up consuming a lot of information that serves no purpose. When you acquire knowledge, you do it with intention and a specific focus.
