The longest distance between knowing it and doing it.

We never lack knowledge and information because there are 800 million videos and 37 million channels on YouTube. I am very sure you can find any answer on YouTube except those illegal topics. Therefore, what is the distance between knowing something and doing it? The length of the distance is measured by the amount of willingness. In short, how badly you want it. The distance does not change according to the amount of desire, but in perspective, it does feel shorter. We might be knowing too much and that knowledge might stop us from doing it. Knowledge becomes a burden in this context. But without knowledge, we are flying blindly into the unknown. The solution is to learn from others' experiences. That is a much smarter way to learn and remember to do it.

Learning does not need to be in the classroom

Learning can be anywhere. Once upon a time, a wise man told me, "when a student is ready, the teacher will appear". I did not understand the real meaning of this statement. But today, I have a new interpretation of this statement. There were some technical challenges in that I couldn't prepare the classroom to conduct a full day of training. In the end, we spend the whole day sitting in the pantry (next to the toilet), without an LCD projector or a proper classroom arrangement. This is the satisfied faces from the class. Sometimes, it is not about the song, it is about the singer. Sometimes, it is not about the movie, it is about the actor. Most of the time, it is about ourselves. I hope life does not throw me too many lemons, although I can make lemon juice. But when it does happen, I can only make more lemon juice.
