For example, let’s say you want to learn a foreign language. Reading a book on how to learn a foreign language quickly allows you to feel like you are making progress. 02:52 You may say, “Hey, I’m figuring out the best way to do this!”. Of course, you're not actually practicing the action that would deliver your desired outcome
the gap between where you are now, and where you want to be in the future is, caused by a lack of knowledge.
In situations like this one, we often claim that we are preparing, or researching the best method. but, these rationalizations allow us to feel like, we are moving forward when we are merely spinning our wheels.
Number two, Practice Is Learning, But Learning Is Not Practice
Active practice, meanwhile, is one of the greatest forms of learning
because, the mistakes you make while practicing reveal important insights
Even more important, practice is the only way to make a meaningful contribution with your knowledge
but that knowledge is unproductive, unless you actually launch your business, or donate to those in need
Learning by itself can be valuable for you. but, if you want to be valuable to others, then you have to express your knowledge in some way

Spend less time passively learning, and more time actively practicing. Stop thinking and start doing
learning by itself does not lead to progress. We often hide behind information, and use learning as an excuse to delay the more difficult, and more important choice of actually doing something.
