Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Knowledge is not power

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Learning is. The power comes from a free mind, not money or the control of others. When you allow your learning mind to develop, you are free to think, create and connect.

We live in the age of information which excessively flows around the world. It even gives us the impression of unlimited access to knowledge. Thus, people may be deceived to think that knowing something empowers them. But this is not so.

We create knowledge by learning and understanding the world around us. And the more we seem to know, the better we realize there is so much we don’t know. We only need an open learning mind to follow the path of the adventure of ideas.

Learn to learn better because that is where the power of a genuinely free mind originates.
