“It is what you know that is your greatest wealth. It is what you do not know that is your greatest risk. There is always risk, so learn to manage risk instead of avoid it.” -Robert Kiyosaki
Education, simply put, is a means by which we narrow our chances. The more we learn, the better equipped we are at turning opportunities into a successful venture. Contrary to popular belief, opportunities are not as rare as we may think. We fail to discover them because we lack the knowledge and information required to perceive them. That said, it’s best to learn as much as we can about a variety of subjects. By doing this, we maximize our chances and minimize the amount of risk involved in a certain endeavor. There is a lot to be done in preparation for success (see Finish Line) and ensuring our readiness by staying informed is a step in the right direction.
