This could not be more true today.But the way we’ve learned tothink about information and knowledge isINSUFFICIENT.
Our educational system trains us to MEMORIZE FACTSstored in textbooks and then rewrite them on an exam.
But as a modern professional,you can’t acquire knowledge this way,because the knowledge you need isn’t static—IT IS ALWAYS CHANGING.
In the world of work, EVERY DAY brings newchallenges and decisions.
Collecting facts won’t get us anywhere.What will get us somewhere is being able to accessthe information we need WHEN WE NEED IT.
