It just takes a little time
There are so many things to learn and nobody seems to have the time to do it.
I find myself always wanting to learn more and wondering when I am going to fit it in.
I started thinking a little today about learning and the time it takes to learn.
Often people will ask me, "How do you know what you know?" I think that the primary reason I get asked that question is because many times people will be struggling with something (related to what I do on a daily basis, of course) and I'll figure it out in a quick moment.
What I know is that I don't know things because I am smarter than the people that are trying to do something (guaranteed) but simply because I have spent the time working.
What people don't see when I seem to be smart is the time that I have spent hidden away learning, studying and researching. I don't talk about the late nights doing research. I don't mention the information I glean from other conversations. I don't comment on how I am learning from my mistakes and the mistakes of others when people aren't watching.
I have simply found that it takes time to do anything of any worth. If you aren't willing to spend the time necessary to learn, you'll never figure out anything new. If you don't take the time, you won't learn.
It really is that simple.
