Accidental Entrepreneur: Knowledge is King (Acquiring knowledge for Success)

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my 38th weekly article as this week is called “ Knowledge is King Acquiring knowledge for Success.”

In this article I go over the different ways I have found to be effective methods of learning new concepts that can help individuals help companies achieve success along with their own personal career success as a byproduct.

“தொட்டனைத் தூறும் மணற்கேணி மாந்தர்க்குக்

கற்றனைத் தூறும் அறிவு”. — திருக்குறள் (396)

“Water will flow from a well in the sand in proportion

to the depth to which it is dug, and knowledge will flow

from a man in proportion to his learning”. — Thirukkural (396)

As I continue to elaborate on the drivers for success, today’s article focuses on the knowledge and how to acquire it in order to continue further develop as a professional for long term success. Since a person is born, one continues to learn and better themselves in various fields. What I have noticed is that, as long as a person keeps an open mind, he or she can learn many new things and share their knowledge as well as experiences with others to improve their situations

Knowledge is acquired in many different ways. It could be from classroom education, family/environmental experiences, reading books and articles by talking to others. In this article, I will try to explain my way of learning and sharing irregardless of the knowledge gathering methods. One fundamental premise is that learning never stops while the method of learning could change as a person matures through their life. These are my ways of learning:

People with knowledge, who are willing to learn as they grow, who are willing to coach others and learn from those experiences are key for the success of a company along with the success in their own career. Knowledge is King; But how one acquires that knowledge can vary person to person and situation to situation. In the end, with the data and foundational knowledge, a person can achieve great results. As a person learns throughout their life, just like digging deep in the sand for water in the well, knowledge will flow like the water and help oneself and the surroundings in positive ways.
