Connecting the dots…


“This is the paradox of historical knowledge. Knowledge that does not change behaviour is useless. But knowledge that changes behaviour quickly loses its relevance.”  Homo Deus: A brief history of tomorrow – Yuval Noah Harari

This great phrase made me think a lot about what we do and don’t do with knowledge. So often we have the knowledge but we don’t do anything with it. We know we should be reflecting, taking in the knowledge, processing it and figuring out what we need to change to improve, but when it come to implementing the change, we put it off or get sucked into our day-to-day lives. 

But once we’ve implemented the changes, we can move forward and learn new things, not having to worry about doing something with the old behaviour anymore. 

In the end, the only thing that matters is growth.

    Funny… just was writing something around the Trap that knowledge and language brings. We can stay stuck in generating meaning and knowing without shifting into the embodyin and feeling part. Got me thinking again ????
