Knowledge

Many people have heard and know that knowledge is power. However, not all people make enough effort to acquire this or that useful knowledge. Therefore, I believe that this topic should be considered in more detail, so that each of you, dear readers, clearly understands what exactly is the great power of knowledge and what needs to be done to find this power. On the one hand, it seems to be clear that you need to learn, get knowledge by all available methods in order to know a lot and, therefore, to be able to. But on the other hand, it’s not always clear to everyone about what kind of knowledge it is necessary to obtain and how to do it better, and most importantly, how to use it later in their lives. Therefore, this moment definitely needs to be properly dealt with. And we will do it.

What is knowledge?

Knowledge is information that, firstly, is verified by practice, and secondly, and this is the most important thing, gives a person the most complete picture of reality. This is the fundamental difference between knowledge and ordinary information, which allows us to have only a partial idea of ​​certain things. Knowledge can still be compared with instructions for something, and information with ordinary tips. The knowledge that a person possesses was very well deposited in his memory, due to the fact that he repeatedly applied it in his life, fixing this knowledge in practice and confirming its truth with his own experience. Over time, knowledge becomes an unconscious skill.

Types of knowledge

Knowledge is different. For example, there is superficial knowledge, but there is deep. Superficial knowledge – this is knowledge that is based on the visible relationships between individual events and facts in a particular subject area. For superficial knowledge, a good memory is enough – I read, heard, saw and remembered the information received, without thinking about why it is this and not the other. And it seems like you know something. Superficial knowledge is often based on two, maximum three links in the causal chain. The model of reasoning of a person with superficial knowledge will be quite simple. It usually has the following form: “If [condition], then [action]”. More complex mental constructions in this scheme, as you understand, are impossible.

An entirely different matter, in-depth knowledge, they already use a more complex structure of reflection and reasoning. Deep knowledge is abstraction, complex patterns and deep analogies that reflect the structure and processes in the subject area. Deep knowledge is based not only on memory, but also on thinking. Moreover, they are not limited only to the construction and analysis of cause-effect chains, but represent a complex web of reflections / reasonings, in which many facts and processes are interconnected. In this case, one single cause may have several consequences, and one specific consequence may arise from different causes. Deep knowledge reflects the holistic structure and nature of existing processes and relationships that occur in the subject area.

Knowledge can also be explicit and implicit. Explicit knowledge is the accumulated experience highlighted and presented in the form of instructions, techniques, manuals, plans and recommendations for action. Explicit knowledge has a clear and concise structure, it is formulated and recorded, both in human memory and on various carriers. Implicit knowledge is knowledge that is difficult or difficult to formalize, that is, to highlight with their help the most important characteristics of the subject of study, discussion. This is intuitive knowledge, personal impressions, sensations, opinions, conjectures. They are not always easy to explain, pass on to other people. They look like pieces of information that are poorly interconnected, and not like a complete and clear picture of reality.

Still knowledge can be worldly and scientific. Everyday knowledge is specific knowledge about something that is based on random reflection and spontaneous observation. They are often intuitive and can greatly depend on the opinions of others. This knowledge is often irrational, that is, not amenable to explanation and full understanding. They cannot be applied to all situations, despite the fact that a person received this knowledge through his experience, because this experience is incomplete, it only partially reflects the laws of various situations. But scientific knowledge is already more generalized, rational, thought out and substantiated by professional observation and experimentation of knowledge. They are accurate, universal, structured and systematized, they are easier to analyze, due to their systematic nature, understand and pass on to other people. Therefore, it is necessary to strive precisely for such knowledge in order to have a more complete and accurate idea of ​​various things in this world. There are many other types of knowledge, but we will not begin to consider them all, we will leave this matter for future articles. Instead, let’s move on to more important issues for us.

Why do we need knowledge?

In order for a person’s craving for knowledge to be especially strong and constant, he must clearly understand why knowledge is needed. Still, their value is not always obvious, since many people do not chase after them as much as, say, for money. Some values ​​are more understandable for us, because we use them constantly and openly, and we see what is of their use. The same money is a value that we all feel, due to the fact that you can buy a lot of money. Or, if we talk about what we are ready to spend our money on, then again, things like “bread and butter” or a roof over our heads seem to us fairly obvious values, since we need these things and cannot dispense with them. But the usefulness of knowledge is somehow not quite and not always visible to the naked eye. But in fact, it’s from what knowledge a person has, depends on his availability of money, and bread and butter, that is, food on the table, and clothing, and housing, and many other important and useful things for life. Knowledge helps people come to all this. And the more a person knows and the better his knowledge, the easier it is for him to come to the material and spiritual values ​​he needs. After all, the same money can be earned in different ways – you can do very hard, dirty and unhealthy work for them, or you can just make the right decisions, give the right instructions, make a few calls a day and earn more than two or three hours than many people earn hard work in a month or even a year. And it’s not a matter of labor productivity, it’s the ability to do such work that many other people cannot do, as well as the ability to replay other people in the struggle for a place in the sun. And all this is facilitated by quality and extensive knowledge. So knowledge opens the door to a beautiful, happy, rich and bright life. And if you are interested in such a life, if you need it, then you need knowledge. But not all knowledge is needed, but only that which can be applied in life with benefit for oneself. Let’s see what kind of knowledge it is.

What knowledge is needed?

As much as some of us do not want to possess all the knowledge that exists in the world in order to be very smart, it is quite obvious that this is impossible. We cannot know everything, because even the knowledge that is known to mankind is so much that it will take several lives to get acquainted with it. And if we take into account the fact that people do not know much about this world, it becomes completely clear that knowledge must be obtained selectively. But this choice is not easy to make. For this, a person must decide what kind of life he wants to live, what goals he plans to achieve, and what is valuable to him in this life. His fate will depend on this choice. It is not by chance that we cannot know everything, because we do not need this. We need to know well the most important thing for us, on which our fate will depend. And this main thing must first be distinguished from everything else. And to do this, it is useful to turn to someone else’s experience. Around us is full of people who have already passed the nth part of their life paths and by their example we can see which knowledge turned out to be useful to them and which not. The life of different people shows us what knowledge can lead to.

Today we are living in a time when there is a lot of different knowledge everywhere. The Internet alone is worth what, in which many interesting and useful things can be found. But such an abundance of information and knowledge prevents a person from understanding what he really needs. I don’t think that this is such a serious problem, like, say, the problem of lack of knowledge, restriction of access to information, censorship, lack of educational opportunities and the like. But still, we must recognize that the abundance of information requires us to take a serious approach to its selection. And the life of other people that I suggest you focus on is the best way to understand which knowledge is important and which is not. All the mistakes that you can make have already been committed by someone. All success which you want and can achieve – already by someone in one form or another have been achieved. Therefore, the experience of other people is invaluable. Study it and you will be able to understand what knowledge you should strive for. Moreover, one should not simply believe what other people say, even if they are very successful people. Better look at what and how they live, where, how and what they studied and learn, what books they read, what they do, what they strive for. Deeds are more honest than words. Also keep in mind that successful people show by example of their experience what knowledge can be useful in life, so you should strive for it. But losers, on the contrary, with their life can show what knowledge is meaningless and useless, and sometimes harmful. This is not an accurate indicator, but you can focus on it. what knowledge you should strive for. Moreover, one should not simply believe what other people say, even if they are very successful people. Better look at what and how they live, where, how and what they studied and learn, what books they read, what they do, what they strive for. Deeds are more honest than words. Also keep in mind that successful people show by example of their experience what knowledge can be useful in life, so you should strive for it. But losers, on the contrary, with their life can show what knowledge is meaningless and useless, and sometimes harmful. This is not an accurate indicator, but you can focus on it. what knowledge you should strive for. Moreover, one should not simply believe what other people say, even if they are very successful people. Better look at what and how they live, where, how and what they studied and learn, what books they read, what they do, what they strive for. Deeds are more honest than words. Also keep in mind that successful people show by example of their experience what knowledge can be useful in life, so you should strive for it. But losers, on the contrary, with their life can show what knowledge is meaningless and useless, and sometimes harmful. This is not an accurate indicator, but you can focus on it. what are they striving for. Deeds are more honest than words. Also keep in mind that successful people show by example of their experience what knowledge can be useful in life, so you should strive for it. But losers, on the contrary, with their life can show what knowledge is meaningless and useless, and sometimes harmful. This is not an accurate indicator, but you can focus on it. what are they striving for. Deeds are more honest than words. Also keep in mind that successful people show by example of their experience what knowledge can be useful in life, so you should strive for it. But losers, on the contrary, with their life can show what knowledge is meaningless and useless, and sometimes harmful. This is not an accurate indicator, but you can focus on it.

Knowledge and Information

Let’s, friends, see how knowledge differs from information. Still, we get this or that information every day, but knowledge is far from always. There are several opinions on this subject. Usually they write and say that knowledge differs from information in that it is part of a person’s experience. That is, knowledge is information verified by experience that a person possesses. This is a good definition, but in my opinion not complete. If knowledge were only part of our own experience, then we would not use such a phrase as “gaining knowledge”, we would talk about obtaining information that can become knowledge only if we test it with our own experience. But we, nevertheless, use such a phrase as “gaining knowledge”, that is, already something ready to use, without testing it first hand. Therefore, in my understanding, knowledge is a more complete, better, more structured and systematized information that reflects a complete and complete picture of a specific subject area as close as possible to reality. That is, it is more harmonious, accurate and fairly extensive information. But simply information is pieces of knowledge, so to speak, elements of a puzzle, from which you still need to make a more complete and clear picture of something. So knowledge is already a picture of reality made up of different information, or you can still say, an instruction for life, which we can use. If, for example, I tell you that a certain instinct is responsible for some specific human behavior, then this will be information, because with this piece of knowledge about a person a lot will remain incomprehensible. If I tell you everything I know about instincts, how they work, how they are interconnected, how they control a person’s behavior and so on and so forth, this will already be the knowledge that I will give you. That is, it will be a more holistic picture of the nature of a person or an instruction to a person that will allow you to learn a lot about him, understand a lot and most importantly, it will allow you to competently work with people and yourself. Information can also be used, but its range of possibilities is much lower. it will be a more holistic picture of the nature of man or an instruction to man, which will allow you to learn a lot about him, understand a lot and most importantly, it will allow you to competently work with people and yourself. Information can also be used, but its range of possibilities is much lower. it will be a more holistic picture of the nature of a person or an instruction to a person that will allow you to learn a lot about him, understand a lot and most importantly, it will allow you to competently work with people and yourself. Information can also be used, but its range of possibilities is much lower.

The acquisition of knowledge

It is very important to be able to properly obtain knowledge in order to learn the maximum of necessary and useful knowledge with a minimum of time and effort. Here a very important role is played by the method of reporting, and, consequently, obtaining information, at least with the help of books, at least with the help of any other sources. The emphasis should be on understanding, thanks to which a person does not lose interest in what he learns about. Because not many people possess sufficient willpower necessary for a serious understanding of the studied subject, while interest in something, fueled, among other things, and by the clarity of the studied information, can turn out to be an excellent motivation for learning. A person will eagerly receive new knowledge if it is understandable and useful in his opinion. Here, a quality education differs from a poor-quality one, including how teachers present knowledge to their students, and not just to what kind of knowledge they give them. A good teacher is a teacher who is able to explain material to students not only in a complex scientific language, but also in the language of ordinary people. You could even say that the teacher should be able to explain the material in the language of a five-year-old child so that everyone can understand it. If knowledge is presented in a clear language, then they will be interesting to people, and if they are interesting, then there will be more attention to them. If people are presented with knowledge in a language incomprehensible to them, then interest in them will be minimal, if at all, and many will simply turn away from them, no matter how useful this knowledge is. which is able to explain material to students not only in a complex scientific language, but also in the language of ordinary people. You could even say that the teacher should be able to explain the material in the language of a five-year-old child so that everyone can understand it. If knowledge is presented in a clear language, then they will be interesting to people, and if they are interesting, then there will be more attention to them. If people are presented with knowledge in a language incomprehensible to them, then interest in them will be minimal, if at all, and many will simply turn away from them, no matter how useful this knowledge is. which is able to explain material to students not only in a complex scientific language, but also in the language of ordinary people. You could even say that the teacher should be able to explain the material in the language of a five-year-old child so that everyone can understand it. If knowledge is presented in a clear language, then they will be interesting to people, and if they are interesting, then there will be more attention to them. If people are presented with knowledge in a language incomprehensible to them, then interest in them will be minimal, if at all, and many will simply turn away from them, no matter how useful this knowledge is.

Quality of knowledge

One cannot but say about such an important thing as the quality of knowledge, on which their effectiveness depends. Still, we gain knowledge primarily for the sake of using it in our lives, and not just to know something. Therefore, knowledge must be practical and effective. Let’s think with you how to determine the quality of knowledge that we can get from various sources. Here, I believe, priority should be given to understanding our knowledge. As I wrote above, understandable knowledge is not only interesting and you want to delve into it, but it is also well absorbed, and most importantly, it is easier to check. In addition, knowledge should be understandable so that a person can not only remember it, but also can develop this knowledge and draw their own conclusions, that is, to generate new knowledge with their help. Then, of course, it’s important so that knowledge is complete, not abrupt and not in the form of dry facts, which again, you just need to remember, but in the form of a whole system in which the connection between the facts should be visible, so that it is clear why something is arranged or works so and not otherwise. And from this follows the following criterion of quality knowledge – this is their reliability. Why exactly follows? Because knowledge, which is presented in the form of predominantly facts, and not in the form of that system of reasoning, consisting of a chain of causal relationships that leads to these facts and helps to relate them to each other, it is quite difficult to check for reliability. You just have to believe in such knowledge, which consists solely of facts, if you yourself were not an eyewitness of these facts. The fact is that it is either there or it is not. But how do you know Does the fact really exist? What evidence is its most reliable? Of course, it is possible to verify certain facts and the knowledge based on them from our own experience, so to speak, to conduct an experiment, as is done in science. But this will require considerable time and effort from you. In addition, if you get poor-quality and even harmful knowledge, then you risk making serious mistakes when checking them, which will not be easy to fix. Therefore, it is important to see those chains of reasoning that allow us to verify the truth of certain facts, at least at the level of theory, with the help of logical thoughts. And if possible, you can transfer this theory to a more or less similar experience from your life, so that with the help of this transfer you can determine the probability of the truth of this or that fact, and at the same time of all the knowledge that we receive.

Often, for effective training, we need the help of other people who help us learn this or that knowledge by linking it with the experience that we have been and are witnessing. That is why we need teachers who explain to us what is written in books and what we see around us. They help us to put in our heads a complete picture of something, supplementing with our explanations the knowledge that we get from books. However, good books can also explain a lot, so self-study can be no less, or even more effective, than teaching with the help of teachers. But provided that the books and other sources of information on which a person is studying are really high-quality.

Knowledge is power

Now let’s think about why knowledge is power. We have already touched on this issue above, but now we will consider it in more detail, so that you have a powerful motivation to acquire new knowledge, regardless of any obstacles. The power of knowledge lies in the fact that they allow a person to bring his plan to life with the help of the necessary sequence of actions. Simply put, knowledge helps us avoid unnecessary mistakes in the implementation of our desires. Thanks to them, we are easier to navigate in this world and can influence a lot in it. Knowing something allows us to control it. But when we don’t know something, we are limited in our capabilities and then those who know more than us can already manage us.

Knowledge also makes us more courageous and confident people. And courage and confidence allow people to succeed in many matters. Let’s say, if you want to do something, then you need to think not about whether it can be done or not, but about how you can do it and what actions you need to take to do this. And before that, you need to think about where and what kind of knowledge you need to get in order to complete the necessary actions [sequence of actions] and do the work you need. That is, knowledge is the key to success in any business. Having the necessary knowledge, you can translate any idea into reality. And this ability to make reality the way we want to see it gives us strength. Let’s ask this question: is it possible to build a time machine? What will be your answer? Think about it. If you think that a time machine cannot be built, then you don’t recognize all the power that knowledge possesses. You proceed from the knowledge that you currently possess, and they do not allow you to assume that it is possible to build such a thing as a time machine. Although for this it is simply necessary to obtain other knowledge that is currently unknown to mankind. But if you are a thinking person and understand one simple but very important truth that we humans do not yet know much about this world, then you can easily admit the possibility of creating a time machine and any other unusual device that can greatly change our life . In this case, you will only have one single question: how to do this? So the power of knowledge is that with their help we can make the impossible possible. You proceed from the knowledge that you currently possess, and they do not allow you to assume that it is possible to build such a thing as a time machine. Although for this it is simply necessary to obtain other knowledge that is currently unknown to mankind. But if you are a thinking person and understand one simple but very important truth that we humans do not yet know much about this world, then you can easily admit the possibility of creating a time machine and any other unusual device that can greatly change our life . In this case, you will only have one single question: how to do this? So the power of knowledge is that with their help we can make the impossible possible. You proceed from the knowledge that you currently possess, and they do not allow you to assume that it is possible to build such a thing as a time machine. Although for this it is simply necessary to obtain other knowledge that is currently unknown to mankind. But if you are a thinking person and understand one simple but very important truth that we humans do not yet know much about this world, then you can easily admit the possibility of creating a time machine and any other unusual device that can greatly change our life . In this case, you will only have one single question: how to do this? So the power of knowledge is that with their help we can make the impossible possible. how you can build a time machine. Although for this it is simply necessary to obtain other knowledge that is currently unknown to mankind. But if you are a thinking person and understand one simple but very important truth that we humans do not yet know much about this world, then you can easily admit the possibility of creating a time machine and any other unusual device that can greatly change our life . In this case, you will only have one single question: how to do this? So the power of knowledge is that with their help we can make the impossible possible. how you can build a time machine. Although for this it is simply necessary to obtain other knowledge that is currently unknown to mankind. But if you are a thinking person and understand one simple but very important truth that we humans do not yet know much about this world, then you can easily admit the possibility of creating a time machine and any other unusual device that can greatly change our life . In this case, you will only have one single question: how to do this? So the power of knowledge is that with their help we can make the impossible possible. don’t know much about this world, you can easily admit the possibility of creating a time machine and any other unusual device that can greatly change our life. In this case, you will only have one single question: how to do this? So the power of knowledge is that with their help we can make the impossible possible. don’t know much about this world, you can easily admit the possibility of creating a time machine and any other unusual device that can greatly change our life. In this case, you will only have one single question: how to do this? So the power of knowledge is that with their help we can make the impossible possible.

The power of knowledge is also very clearly manifested in those cases when a person does not receive, but disseminates knowledge. The fact is that people are driven not only by their instincts that determine their needs, but also ideas, beliefs, and faith. And ideas are infected by people from the outside world in which someone creates and distributes them. And it is precisely the one who infects the minds of most people with his ideas – receives the highest power over them. This is a great force that no other force can compare with. No violence and no fear can be compared with the power of ideas, with the power of persuasion and ultimately with the power of people’s faith in something. Because such a force controls people from within, and not from the outside. So, in order to infect people with their ideas, you need to create and disseminate them in society. This is a very difficult task, so there are so few great ideologists in the world who decide the fate of millions. If you only get knowledge, then this, of course, is also very good. Thanks to knowledge, you will know a lot and be able to. But at the same time, you yourself risk becoming infected with other people’s ideas and, in a sense, become their hostage. This is not always bad, but keep in mind that the highest manifestation of the power of knowledge is precisely the ability to create and disseminate it, rather than receive and apply it.

Price of knowledge

This is perhaps one of the most important questions that everyone should know the answer to. How much is good knowledge in every sense? Do not rush to answer this question, think better. Many of us know and understand that knowledge is needed, knowledge is important, knowledge is useful. But good, high-quality knowledge, which a person will not just obtain with the help of some source or in any educational institution, but which will be explained to him in the most detailed way so that he will well learn it, has a price. The price may be different, but it is important to understand the main thing – good knowledge is priceless! You are well aware that a good education is expensive, but at the same time you should understand that good knowledge, the necessary knowledge, useful knowledge that can be obtained through a quality education always pays for itself, always. Therefore, investing money and time in obtaining good knowledge is an ideal investment. In general, I believe that in this life you can never spare money on such things as health and training, everything else is secondary. After all, it is obvious that any person needs good health, without him a normal life will not be. To do this, he should eat well, rest for the right amount of time, use quality medicine and, if possible, not work in harmful work. I’m not even talking about bad habits – they are definitely unacceptable. And having good health, a person must take care of the contents of his head in order to take a worthy place in this life. Therefore, health and knowledge should never be spared, neither money nor time. These are not things to bargain with. In general, I believe that in this life you can never spare money on such things as health and training, everything else is secondary. After all, it is obvious that any person needs good health, without him a normal life will not be. To do this, he should eat well, rest for the right amount of time, use quality medicine and, if possible, not work in harmful work. I’m not even talking about bad habits – they are definitely unacceptable. And having good health, a person must take care of the contents of his head in order to take a worthy place in this life. Therefore, health and knowledge should never be spared, neither money nor time. These are not things to bargain with. In general, I believe that in this life you can never spare money on such things as health and training, everything else is secondary. After all, it is obvious that any person needs good health, without him a normal life will not be. To do this, he should eat well, rest for the right amount of time, use quality medicine and, if possible, not work in harmful work. I’m not even talking about bad habits – they are definitely unacceptable. And having good health, a person must take care of the contents of his head in order to take a worthy place in this life. Therefore, health and knowledge should never be spared, neither money nor time. These are not things to bargain with. After all, it is obvious that any person needs good health, without him a normal life will not be. To do this, he should eat well, rest for the right amount of time, use quality medicine and, if possible, not work in harmful work. I’m not even talking about bad habits – they are definitely unacceptable. And having good health, a person must take care of the contents of his head in order to take a worthy place in this life. Therefore, health and knowledge should never be spared, neither money nor time. These are not things to bargain with. After all, it is obvious that any person needs good health, without him a normal life will not be. To do this, he should eat well, rest for the right amount of time, use quality medicine and, if possible, not work in harmful work. I’m not even talking about bad habits – they are definitely unacceptable. And having good health, a person must take care of the contents of his head in order to take a worthy place in this life. Therefore, health and knowledge should never be spared, neither money nor time. These are not things to bargain with. I’m not even talking about bad habits – they are definitely unacceptable. And having good health, a person must take care of the contents of his head in order to take a worthy place in this life. Therefore, health and knowledge should never be spared, neither money nor time. These are not things to bargain with. I’m not even talking about bad habits – they are definitely unacceptable. And having good health, a person must take care of the contents of his head in order to take a worthy place in this life. Therefore, health and knowledge should never be spared, neither money nor time. These are not things to bargain with.

How to get knowledge?

To get good knowledge, you must first determine the priority of those methods of obtaining them that are available to a particular person. And then use these methods in the appropriate sequence. In my opinion, the best way to get knowledge is to get it from other people and with the help of other people. But the point here is not that someone will decide for you what and how you need to learn, but that you will use another person, other people, as your teachers, to learn the things you need. That is, you need to determine the plan of your training just for you, as in the case of self-education – the best way of education. But at the same time you need to use other people as assistants, mentors, advisers, so that they tell you what to learn and how to learn. After all, let’s say if you are still very young and know little about this world, then it will be difficult for you to figure out what is important and valuable in it and what is not. You need to listen to the advice of other people, smarter and more experienced, but the responsibility for the knowledge you receive should rest with you. People are a source of knowledge that is very convenient to use. When a person explains to you what and how it works in this world, when you can ask him questions about incomprehensible moments, you can ask again, clarify, argue, you can correct your mistakes in the learning process with his help – this is just a great way to learn something , and fast enough. but the responsibility for the knowledge you receive must rest with you. People are a source of knowledge that is very convenient to use. When a person explains to you what and how it works in this world, when you can ask him questions about things you don’t understand, you can ask again, clarify, argue, you can correct your mistakes in the learning process with his help – this is just a great way to learn something , and fast enough. but the responsibility for the knowledge you receive must rest with you. People are a source of knowledge that is very convenient to use. When a person explains to you what and how it works in this world, when you can ask him questions about incomprehensible moments, you can ask again, clarify, argue, you can correct your mistakes in the learning process with his help – this is just a great way to learn something , and fast enough.

Books also play a very important role in the process of gaining knowledge – from my point of view, this is the most preferred way of learning without the help of living people. Not video, not audio, but books, that is, gaining knowledge using printed text, using signs, symbols, this is what is useful. The text, it doesn’t matter whether it is on paper or on the monitor screen, is the material you need to work with. Do not just look at it like pictures, namely, work with it – think about the written thoughts, words, ideas, laws, analyze them, compare, evaluate, check. A text – it is always before your eyes, it can always be divided into separate sentences, phrases, words, in order to carefully study it. In some cases, it is more useful to read not books, but articles, including scientific ones. They are useful because they convey knowledge in a compressed form, they do not have as much unnecessary writing as in most books. Still, we all have limited time, so it may simply not be enough to read tremendous books. But the article may, although not always completely, but rather quickly and accurately convey to you the very essence of the laws governing our knowledge. And then you decide for yourself what you need to delve into and in which direction to expand your knowledge by finding additional materials on the topic of interest to you. from which our knowledge is formed. And then you decide for yourself what you need to delve into and in which direction to expand your knowledge by finding additional materials on the topic of interest to you. from which our knowledge is formed. And then you decide for yourself what you need to delve into and in which direction to expand your knowledge by finding additional materials on the topic of interest to you.

И еще один хороший способ получения знаний, давайте будем считать его третьим по значимости – это наблюдение за происходящим. Мы все имеем какой-никакой опыт, и продолжаем получать его ежедневно, который нас многому может научить. Причем это такой учитель, который никогда не обманет. Но чтобы нам чему-то научиться на своем опыте – необходимо быть предельно внимательным ко всему, что нас окружает и что с нами происходит. Многие люди ничему не учатся на своем опыте лишь потому, что не обращают на него должного внимания. Они не наблюдают за всем, что происходит в их жизни и поэтому много ценной информации проходит мимо них; не придают значения важным мелочам вокруг себя, которые могут о многом рассказать. Ну и, конечно же, они не анализируют достаточно хорошо все те ситуации, которые были в их жизни и чем-то их учили. Но я считаю, что человек может и должен учиться у всего, что он видит и слышит вокруг себя. Для этого просто нужно быть внимательным и наблюдательным. А эти качества может развить в себе каждый. Иной раз с помощью простого наблюдения можно научиться гораздо большему, чем с помощью многих хороших книг. Потому что оно способно показать вам такие детали в происходящем, на которые другие люди могут не обратить внимания или не придать им нужного значения. К тому же свой опыт, как правило, дает больше уверенности в понимании чего-либо, чем чужой, в искренности и корректности которого по ряду причин всегда можно усомниться.

Knowledge and thinking

Knowledge is knowledge, but in our time, the ability of a person to think, including non-standard, creative, flexible, is of particular importance. Thinking allows not only to effectively use a person’s knowledge, but also to create their own, to come up with new interesting ideas that can fundamentally turn over his idea of ​​something. And this, as you already know, is also very important, and sometimes much more important, than the experience already accumulated by mankind. Knowledge, even very good, is rapidly becoming obsolete today, albeit not completely, but to a large extent. While thinking is always relevant, it allows you to adapt old knowledge to new conditions and, when necessary, create new knowledge that will help solve the actual problem. Therefore, to learn something once, and then rest all my life resting on our laurels, using our knowledge, it’s still possible, but in the near future it will become impossible for those people who want to live a good, high-quality life. The modern world clearly shows us that we need to learn all our lives. This is the only way to survive and achieve success in a highly competitive struggle.

And I personally consider a good life a life in which a person is engaged in a truly favorite thing, even for little money, and does not work all day for an unloved and sometimes even a hated job, in order to only earn a piece of bread. To do what you love in the modern world without adapting to the labor market is a great luxury. If you come to this, you will feel happy.

So, friends, thinking must be developed. Without developed thinking, even very good modern knowledge can become dead capital. And nobody really needs dead knowledge. And to make them alive – you need to use their thinking to adapt them to solve various pressing problems and problems. Just imagine a modern medium or large business in which there is fierce competition, and in order to win it, you need to give a result, and not dig up dusty knowledge in your memory in order to show it to your competitors. Therefore, thinking comes to the fore, as it allows us to be more practical. And knowledge today can be obtained very quickly on the Internet, and many of them will be more modern and accurate than the knowledge that a person has in his head.

In general, most of the knowledge is what not only one person has, but also many other people. And the more people know about something, the weaker this knowledge. The strength of knowledge is determined, including their availability. If some knowledge is available only to a few people, then there is a lot of power in them, and when most people learn about them, they lose their strength. So, let’s say someone knows about something useful, while others do not know this, and this someone has an advantage over the others, thanks to his knowledge, which is available only to him. But once this knowledge spreads and a person loses his strength, as his monopoly on this knowledge will collapse. After all, if everyone knows what you know, then what is your advantage, what is your strength? So, the knowledge that we get in standard ways, as a rule, is known not only to us, but also to many other people. So, we have no other advantages over these other people, other things being equal. By other equal conditions, I understand such things as a person’s willingness and ability to apply his knowledge, as well as perseverance, hard work and the like. Without them, knowledge is useless.

So it turns out that what we know is often known by some other people, and this to some extent equalizes us with them. But good, developed thinking can lead a person to such knowledge that will be known only to him alone. Indeed, thinking is able to give birth to completely new knowledge, new solutions and new ideas. It can lead a person to insight – insight, insight, awareness, a breakthrough in solving some problem that cannot be solved by standard methods. Thus, developed thinking gives a person a serious advantage over other people. So knowledge is, of course, power. But together with developed thinking, they become truly great and absolute power.
