"Why do people know what to do and yet not do it? Like we know worrying is not good, it solves nothing yet many still worry. Is this not just head knowledge?"
A friend posted that as a WhatsApp status. Below was my response;
The thing is;
1) The average human is a slow learner. I don't have the stats but your valid observation confirms it. Before we learn a concept we need to hear it again and again and again. An example is, savings many know they should save yet they don't.
2) We are in a time when we have so much information at our disposal. It has never been like this in human history. So much knowledge and information. Hence it has become very easy to be shallow - Just knowing something on the surface. Only few people have depth. And how do we have depth about a concept or knowledge? 1 above, read it again, hear it again so much.
Finally lots of young folks get bored at sticking at one thing to know it thoroughly. They call it boredom. It's not boredom its laziness. That also is part of the problem.

So, let me know your thoughts too.
