This Is Why Some People Always Seem To Know A Lot

This Is Why Some People Always Seem To Know A Lot

Who doesn’t like to be around someone who seemingly has an answer to our many questions? People who always seem to know a lot will always be on demand as knowledge drives progress and discovery. To know a lot though means you have to commit yourself to certain things. Here are some of the things that people who know a lot tend to do.

1. They read

It is not about reading junks or materials with little or no facts. To know a lot means you have to be willing to commit yourself to learning from the masters. And what better way to garner such knowledge than through books, journals or other printed materials that contain information that needs to be read.

2. They are friends with other people who know a lot

It is hard to be knowledgeable and be amongst people who do not share your penchant for knowledge. Being around people who are not devoted to knowledge could becomes a burden on them. People who know a lot are friends with other experts or knowledgeable persons. Doing this provides them with a greater wealth of knowledge and keeps them sharp.

3. They discover

Being curious won’t kill the cat. It will only make it smarter. People who know a lot don’t just sit down in a place and wait for knowledge to meet them. They go out there to discover and find more answers to their many questions.

4. They ask questions

People who know a lot ask questions. They want to know. They will look for the right person that can provide answers and information and ask them questions. By asking questions, the right questions, they are able to get answers. And answers are solutions to problems.

5. They travel

They do not limit their world to a particular geographic location. They explore and want to discover newer channels and gain newer experiences. They don’t just want to read it but also want to experience it.

6. They stay away from distractions

There are things that distract people from attaining more knowledge. People who know a lot stay away from distractions like TV, social media and gossips. They focus on worthy pursuits and on things that will challenge their mental abilities.

7. They educate themselves

Whether it is in pursuing a higher degree or doing well to acquire a new skill, people who know a lot try new things and educate themselves. They don’t make any excuses about it, but know that pushing themselves to a new challenge will educate and make them more valuable to their society.

8. They are adaptable

They are not rigid. They know that things will not always remain the same. People who know a lot are flexible and are able to change with the trend and demands. They don’t want to be victims of change but masters of change.

9. They are attentive

Whether you like it or not, you can only learn more if you observe and listen. People who know a lot know that they are not perfect and have limitations. They are attentive and observe what goes on around them.

10. They strive

There is a standard before us all. Some meet those expectations, others don’t. People who know a lot strive to be better and more efficient. Such a test could lead to mistakes, but they are willing to strive and push on beyond the obstacles and challenges.

Experiences can teach a person so much. People who know a lot strive and mature with experiences.

Who is not fascinated by someone who knows a lot? But not everyone will know so much. It boils down to how much we are willing to learn and focus on becoming that person others either envy or want to listen to.

7 Signs That You’re Way Too Busy

7 Signs That You’re Way Too Busy

“Busy” used to be a fair description of the typical schedule. More and more, though, “busy” simply doesn’t cut it.

“Busy” has been replaced with “too busy”, “far too busy”, or “absolutely buried.” It’s true that being productive often means being busy…but it’s only true up to a point.

As you likely know from personal experience, you can become so busy that you reach a tipping point…a point where your life tips over and falls apart because you can no longer withstand the weight of your commitments.

Once you’ve reached that point, it becomes fairly obvious that you’ve over-committed yourself.

The trick, though, is to recognize the signs of “too busy” before you reach that tipping point. A little self-assessment and some proactive schedule-thinning can prevent you from having that meltdown.

To help you in that self-assessment, here are 7 signs that you’re way too busy:

1. You Can’t Remember the Last Time You Took a Day Off

Occasional periods of rest are not unproductive, they are essential to productivity. Extended periods of non-stop activity result in fatigue, and fatigue results in lower-quality output. As Sydney J. Harris once said,

“The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.”

2. Those Closest to You Have Stopped Asking for Your Time

Why? They simply know that you have no time to give them. Your loved ones will be persistent for a long time, but once you reach the point where they’ve stopped asking, you’ve reached a dangerous level of busy.

3. Activities like Eating Are Always Done in Tandem with Other Tasks

If you constantly find yourself using meal times, car rides, etc. as times to catch up on emails, phone calls, or calendar readjustments, it’s time to lighten the load.

It’s one thing to use your time efficiently. It’s a whole different ballgame, though, when you have so little time that you can’t even focus on feeding yourself.

4. You’re Consistently More Tired When You Get up in the Morning Than You Are When You Go to Bed

One of the surest signs of an overloaded schedule is morning fatigue. This is a good indication that you’ve not rested well during the night, which is a good sign that you’ve got way too much on your mind.

If you’ve got so much to do that you can’t even shut your mind down when you’re laying in bed, you’re too busy.

5. The Most Exercise You Get Is Sprinting from One Commitment to the Next

It’s proven that exercise promotes healthy lives. If you don’t care about that, that’s one thing. If you’d like to exercise, though, but you just don’t have time for it, you’re too busy.

If the closest thing you get to exercise is running from your office to your car because you’re late for your ninth appointment of the day, it’s time to slow down.

6. You Dread Getting up in the Morning

If your days are so crammed full that you literally dread even starting them, you’re too busy. A new day should hold at least a small level of refreshment and excitement. Scale back until you find that place again.

7. “Survival Mode” Is Your Only Mode

If you can’t remember what it feels like to be ahead of schedule, or at least “caught up”, you’re too busy.

So, How To Get out of Busyness?
