In the current Internet world there’s a massive move towards claiming to be the expert rather than earning the right to be the expert. Every person with a blog or a Facebook account has the right to have an opinion.
But you have to earn the right to be an expert.
And you have a choice as to who to listen to.
If you are a real expert you have to do the reading, you have to do the work, you have to become an expert in the body of knowledge that exists, and you have to develop your own innovations that move that industry forward.
Just because someone is shouting loudly doesn’t make them an expert.
Just because there’s a vocal minority that think vaccinations are evil and 911 was a conspiracy theory doesn’t mean it’s true.
Choose carefully who is filling up your mind.

How often do you hear the statement, ‘there just aren’t enough hours in the day”?
