“Ignorance is bliss.”  No.  The quote is not even complete.  “..where ignorance is bliss, ’tis folly to be wise.” – Thomas Gray  Let’s dig deeper.

Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College, written in 1746 when Thomas Gray was 31 years old, is below:

“To each his suff’rings: all are men,
Condemn’d alike to groan,
The tender for another’s pain;
Th’ unfeeling for his own.
Yet ah! why should they know their fate?
Since sorrow never comes too late,
And happiness too swiftly flies.
Thought would destroy their paradise.
No more; where ignorance is bliss,
‘Tis folly to be wise.” – Thomas Gray

Knowledge Has Depth And Breadth

Ignorance is fatal.  Is that true?  It can be!  Do you eat potatoes?  Have you seen the red berries on a potato plant?  Did you know that they are poison?  Some mushrooms and other plants are also poison.  People have died from ingesting poisonous plants that they were ignorant about.

Knowledge can empower you, but there’s something more powerful than knowing something.

Knowledge and Application of Knowledge

On your journey, you’ll need some knowledge and also how to apply it.  Back in 1957, I saw a little booklet the first time called “Think And Do”.  The knowledge was in the Think and the application was in the Do.  

You can gain knowledge on the job, by doing courses, getting consulting, getting coaching, or being mentored.  Mentorship may be more rare than it used to be but courses are plentiful.  Trouble is, some are useful and some are not.  Consulting and coaching work, if you have someone helping who has the knowledge and the experience.  Experience-based knowledge is the best.  Blacksmiths learn from blacksmiths.  Language is learned from parents.  Internships are done in the professions of medicine, architecture, and engineering, to name a few.

I’ve been using a platform which includes education, you can buy domain names, you get hosting and SSL certificate included on your sites.  You can build sites for free.  You can even get started for free.  There are a huge number of people doing the training.  I have not seen such support, both technical and from fellow members.  I have not seen such positivity anywhere else.
