We don’t know what we don’t have to know.
We don’t do what we don’t have to do.
You can’t expect someone to know something that they never had to know.
And you can’t expect someone to do something that they’ve never had to do.
Necessity is the greatest motivator of all time.
And every person at any given point in time is driven by different necessities their situation demands of them.
Nobody is weaker, or stronger in the general sense of the world. We are only ever better or worse at any given field.
Odd as it sounds, often times the best way to progress at any given field in life is to purposely put ourselves in situations where we have no choice but to know what we previously wouldn’t have had to know and to do the thing that we previously would never have had to do.
The problems we face in life aren’t things to be avoided.
They are opportunities to acquire new knowledge and new skill sets.
They are opportunities to grow.
