If Only We Knew What We Know
Each of us has almost infinite information at our fingertips for virtually any topic. If we individually knew what we collectively know about complicated topics, from healthcare and artificial intelligence to climate change, we would be in a much better position to discuss and solve today's problems. But access to infinite information is not enough -- it needs to be translated into actionable knowledge if it’s going to help us overcome today’s big challenges, both personal and professional.
Personal Knowledge Management
We’re deluged with information on almost every topic we care about. We can't possibly retain all of that information, but it would be great if we could retain the information you'll wish you had in the future. Personal knowledge management (PKM) is a proven approach to being more successful personally and professionally by retaining and managing the information most likely to be valuable to your needs and interests. PKM tools help you build a personal competitive advantage that grows exponentially over time. The earlier you start, the sooner you'll see the personal and professional benefits of PKM.
