Everyone has goals.
People often assume that they need to gain knowledge in order to achieve these goals.
However, learning something new isn’t enough.
If your goal is to make progress, practicing is vital.
While learning and practicing seem similar, practicing is an active way to build a skill, rather than just obtain knowledge.
Here are some reasons to practice your skills.
#1 Passive Learning Can Support Inaction
Learning can be a way to avoid being active in pursuing a goal.
It can turn into a procrastination method because it allows you to feel like you are making progress when in reality you aren’t actually applying your knowledge.
#2 Practice is Learning, But Learning Is Not Practice
Even though you are gaining knowledge, you are not learning how to apply it.
Additionally, practicing allows you to learn from the mistakes you make as you go.
You have to be able to utilize your knowledge in order for those skills to have value.
#3 Practicing Puts Your Energy on the Process
Applying your knowledge through practice sets a great tone and allows you to progress in all areas of your life
Learning is still a great way to absorb new knowledge, but it is vital to put it into practice in order to make progress and meet your goals.
