There are times when we know that we have learned everything and we have done everything. But the reality is actually something different. The truth is strikingly the opposite of what we have been thinking. It is just a matter of time that we come face to face with it and feel as if this truth has slapped us right in our face. Today, I happen to experience something similar.
Throughout my education I thought I had practical experience or say knowledge of a crucial topic of my area. I thought if I ever have to implement it professionally I would be able to do so just like that. And earlier today, completely forgetting that I was already introduced to similar methods, I was searching of ways to implement it. But now suddenly I happen to come to know about it and that I have already learned in the past. I have come to understand that I learned it theoretically but I never did it in practical. I realize that I was putting myself into an illusion of knowing everything about it. This is the result of too much theoretical learning and little practical. I think I do not want to reveal what that crucial topic is, but I will tell that it is a very important aspect of my education and my master’s degree.
Oh, I just said something that certainly sounds strange for anyone from my area and with background similar to mine. The term “too much theoretical learning and little practical” may sound awkward and hard to convince yourself. But for many people this, I believe, is true. Like I said, it is just a matter of time when you come to know this reality.
