"People's eyes glaze over when I mention my Masters in the Eastern Classics. So I don't bring it up."
I almost couldn't believe I heard it. This person sitting across from me spent countless hours reading, absorbing, and studying.and he chucked it under the bus at the slightest smell of a yawn.
As I see it we have two problems. Those who have the information and are mocked for it and have to experience the "glaze over" when sharing their information. AND. those that care less about knowing information than knowing where to find information.
Concepts and ideas have to be explored to be understood. To be known.
Contribution + Appreciation = Fulfillment
If you know something share it. Wholeheartedly.
