CHAPTER 5   -   SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE

 

Mr. Hill writes specialized knowledge is personal experiences or observations.

There are two kinds of knowledge-general and specialized.

I didn't know that.  I always thought you gained knowledge from going to school

and college.  After you did that you were considered "educated".  Well, you can 

go to school after school after school and college after college after college and 

still not be "educated".  How is that possible?  I have learned that to be truly

educated, no matter how much general or specialized knowledge you acquire,

you must know how to organize and use that knowledge after you acquire it. 

The public schools and grand colleges and universities teach all the knowledge,

but they don't teach HOW TO ORGANIZE AND USE IT!!  How could all of those

"educated" leaders have overlooked something so vital to the basic growth process?

I have also learned specialized knowledge means you don't need to know EVERYTHING

yourself, you only need to know how to organize a Master Mind Group who does know

EVERYTHING!  Surround yourself with people who can supply you with any knowledge

you need to know and how to organize that knowledge into definite plans of action.

But never, never, never forget-YOU must contribute something in return.  And remember

every great ending starts with an IDEA and ideas only come from imagination.

How will your imagination lead you to success?

I love you all, thank you so much for believing in me.
