“Knowledge is potential power. For the power to be manifested, it must be applied. Most people know what they should do in any given situation, or in their lives for the matter. The problem is that they don’t take daily, consistent action to apply the knowledge and don’t realize their dreams.” Robin Sharma – The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
I’ve always wondered whether we have to socialize with only the people who we think are better and more educated than ourselves so we can learn more from them or we have to talk to all kinds of people even if we know they wouldn’t add any small value to our knowledge. I don’t have too many friends; I’m not the kind of guy who knows groups of people and get along quickly with others but I have close friends and true ones. Most of my friends are well-educated, talented and serious up to some extent. Sometimes, I feel like I should add silly friends to my list and get to know other funny guys but that’s not my type, you know what I mean?
Knowledge is power, apparently, potential power. Today, I realize I have to be less serious and enjoy more time with new friends. That’d be easier said than done, but in the worst-case scenario, I’ll try to be “just” nice to everybody.
