We’ve all heard the phrase “knowledge is power”. The more knowledge you can acquire, the more power and ability you have to take on life’s problems. But the problem isn’t how much knowledge is out there, but how curious you are and how willing you are to go get it.

Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it made Warren Buffet a billionaire. Having curiosity drives you learn more and more, and Buffet believes the more you can push yourself to learn, the better off you’ll be:
“Read 500 pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.”
Donald Latumahina at blog Life Optimizer takes Buffet’s quote to the next level and explains that because knowledge builds up like compound interest, knowledge gives you an exponential return. Just like a financial investment, the more you invest in your own knowledge, the more you’ll get in return. There’s lots of free information out there you can use to increase your knowledge and better yourself, so get out there and get curious.
