I read something amazing from my favourite author: Thich Nhat Hanh.
He uses gas and electricity to represent the general knowledge.
We know enough about both sources of energy to use them regularly and not be afraid. At the same time we know about the danger. Yet, we still use both. Same should apply to life and our careers.
I believe in learning and knowledge, that’s one of the reasons why I work as a college instructor. I agree with Thai though, that some of the information available to us, is overwhelming and not necessary.
We do not need to know everything about our trade, in order to proceed. So much info is enough to scare us and limit our potential.
