Being Knowledgeable

by Ron Kurtus (updated 17 March 2023)

Being knowledgeable is the first step in becoming skilled and then confident. It means you are aware of your surroundings, you remember and understand things you learn and you know how to perform various related tasks. But achieving that goal can be a challenge due to outside forces and your own destructive attitude.

You benefit from gaining knowledge and applying that knowledge as a skill. You become confident or sure of yourself when confronted with problems. Being treated by others as a knowledgeable or skilled person is a great reward and motivator. The thirst for knowledge is a driving force among all great men and women.

The mission of these free online lessons is to encourage you to overcome the challenges and to give you a start at improving your knowledge and skills. It is also useful for those who want to become educators.
