“Learning without thought is labor lost; thought without learning is perilous” – Confucius

This quote tells tells us that learning and thought are quite different – and, equally important.

The act of learning brings knowledge.
The act of thought brings application to new ideas, acts, and endeavors.
The synergy between is crucial. One is nothing without the other.

We don’t need useless trivia knowledge, just for the sake of knowing it – that doesn’t directly make our lives better. The quote refers to this as “labor lost”. Nor do we want to rush into hike up the Appalachian mountains without doing some research and preparation first. That would simply be dangerous, and as the quote puts it, “perilous”.

The balance is spending the right time on both.
Prepared, but never in paralysis through analysis.
Innovative, but always a student.

With our aim to make every day our best, let’s strive to never be wasteful in time, nor perilous in action.
