- From Josh Bernhoff’s Frameworks matter: Why it’s not enough to be an expert
If you have both a lot of knowledge and a useful framework, you will be a true thought leader. Others will follow you. They will add to your knowledge. They will debate you and through those debates, we will all acquire a deeper understanding. And, if you are committed and humble enough to keep learning, you will extend your own framework with what you continue to learn. This is genuinely fulfilling.
So gather knowledge and find ways to structure it. Work on the big idea and the framework that goes with it. Because, when it comes to leading people to think better and know more, that’s crucial.
Read the whole thing (Framework 1 = knowledge without structure, Framework 2 = hierarchical framework, Framework 3 = cyclical framework, Framework 4 = list with related bits of information)
