Knowledge is everywhere. One of my favorite places to get knowledge is from the website Ted.com. This website has a massive amount of videos of different speakers talking about all kinds of subjects. The speakers are smart, the ideas are innovative and the knowledge you can get is immense.
I will periodically mention specific videos that I suggest you watch but feel free to browse the different categories for items that may interest you. I do encourage reading. I think everyone should read but for those who just do not care to read and don’t even want to listen to audio books, video will be your alternative. This is the website that will help you to be an intelligent person. In turn, that will help you in your job.
The only time a boss is intentionally looking to hire someone who has the mental capacity to be knowledgeable but prefers to stay ignorant is when that boss is looking for a fall guy. Someone he intends to allow the blame to fall on for something he has or has not done. You don’t want to be that person.
Ted Talks is for everyone. It has something to offer to college bound students as well as labor force bound students. It’s fun and it’s free.
