Knowledge isn’t binary.
Let me explain.
Most people think they either know something, or they don’t know something.
Well, I got news.
There’s a whole nother layer.
It’s called, not knowing what you don’t know.
Let’s make this simple.
Take building muscle for example.
You might know that in order to build muscle, you need protein.
You might also know that you don’t know when the optimal time is to get that protein into your body.
You know that is something you need to learn.
We have google.
But you might not know that you don’t know how to count macros, which is an essential part of giving your body the nutrients it needs in order to build muscle.
In reality, what you know is something like 10% of total knowledge.
What you don’t know is probably another 10%.
But what you don’t know is the large majority, call it 80%.
The smartest people truly understand how little they know.
How do you currently react to failure or setbacks?
Think about how you answered the question.
Be honest with yourself, truly.
Do you take setbacks personal?
Do you let them get you down?
Or do you know how to use them as fuel? Do you view failure as a learning opportunity?
Just sit with this…
