Learning is not in the retention and regurgitation of facts, but of the evaluation of the conclusion derived from those facts as to whether to incorporate it into daily life

The concept of facts is under assault. In so much as as truth is relegated to a form of opinion (my truth vs your truth) so that it be on the same standing as perception. Reality was the first casualty when it was brought down and equated as perception. Reality is what it is. Perception is your conception and opinion of what that is. A summation of reality. Your perception alone does not change reality. Your actions based on your perception does. Thus the stock market.
But the concept of fact is under attack. It is under attack when we excuse lying as a reforming fact. To say something that is it not is lying. Plain and simple.

A great master begins with the mastery of one

Sort of the opposite of the phrase, "jack of all trades, master of none."
Was "Journey of Jack of all Trades begins with the mastery one."

People who don't want to try something because they are afraid they are not good at it, will always wait. But when is someone good at it the first time, all the time?
So try. Be good at it. Repeat.

Want less, fulfilled sooner

Why is it the more we crave, the less content we feel? Everywhere around us, everything tells us to ask for more, aim higher and get more stuff. But does stuff actually fills that hole? Or does it just make it feel deeper, more space to stuff things in. If fulfillment is what we seek, maybe we should do the logical thing. What is shorter than a straight line between two points? A shorter line. So maybe we should stop along the way to that second point. Make more points. Make a shorter line. In short, want less. If we want less, it's likely we can get what we want sooner. Be satisfied sooner. Fulfilled earlier.  And because we are human, we will want more later. Another point along they way. And another. And another. till we reach the other point.

Idiots must understand the difference between being righteous and being right.

Being righteous sometime means being wrong sometime, too. Being right means you are right all the time. Being Right doesn't mean you are right, just as being Left doesn't mean you're wrong.Being a right Idiot means being right. Being a Right Idiot means your twice it An idiot doesn't know how they got it right. An righteous idiot doesn't know how.
