This week’s post is primarily a reminder for me to put into action what I learn.
During my electric bass lesson this week, I learned a new concept that appears to have some very practical application when I play on our worship team at church. Now that I’ve gained this new knowledge, I have a choice: I can either apply it, or forget it.
It seems like such a silly choice, doesn’t it? “Of course, I’ll apply it!” is the response I tell myself. However, I am surprised how often a good intention to apply newly acquired knowledge can be tossed aside when we get busy, or in some cases, just plain lazy.
It takes effort to apply a new skill, yet it also takes effort to learn a new skill as well. If I’m going to put forth the effort to learn something new, I need to follow through with the effort to apply that knowledge as well. Otherwise, I’m just wasting my time.
So, let’s get out there (still talking to myself here, but feel free to follow along, if this is applicable to you) and start putting our knowledge into action. New levels await!
