Intelligence: capacity for learning, reasoning, understanding, and similar forms ofmental activity;
aptitude in grasping truths, relationships, facts,meanings, etc.” 

Today’s theme of words deals with intelligence. With information at our fingertips 24/7, it is imperative to continually educate ourselves with books and credible sources online that we use to attain information from. Especially now, employers and clients alike expect more from us today than ever before because of the availability of resources given to us. Take advantage of it! Free education is everywhere and a privilege not everybody has. Plus you don’t have to look far. Don’t let it go to waste. 

From apps on your phone meant to train your brain to learn more efficiently, to websites like Udemy and YouTube that give you access to video classes, to a vast number of books available at libraries and stores like Barnes and Nobles; you literally have the luxury to learn at any pace. All kinds of information is available to you so long as you make the effort to see it. As they say, the best investment you can make is in yourself. What better investment than to absorb and learn all the knowledge you possibly can?

Remember, ignorance is not bliss. It is a sign of impotence and that can be detrimental. Feed your intelligence. Expand your horizons and learn new things. There is nothing more advantageous than being well informed. Education is extremely important to your success. As the Oracle of Nebraska, Warren Buffet, simply put it, “The more you learn, the more you earn.” In a world where you are always judged, one thing that you can always count on being praised is your ability to think and formulate your own thoughts.

Ignorance is not bliss. It is a sign of impotence that should be remedied. Click To Tweet
