Power Consists of Knowledge

"Far better to think historically, to remember the lessons of the past.Thus, far better to conceive of power as consisting in part of the knowledge of when not to use all the power you have. Far better to be one who knows that if you reserve the power not to use all your power, you will lead others far more successfully and well." A. Bartlett Giamatti (1938 – 1989), President of Yale University It is true, sometimes you have to not use all your power to be empowered. Tonight I had an opportunity to work out at my stick fighting class and this concept definitely holds true. Sometime you have hold back and conserve power to deliver a powerful technique.

Tonight I am relying on the words of Mr. Giamatti to help me conserve my power with the knowledge that I am tired and it is late. Are you knowledgeable about when to use and not to use all your power? Cemaaj, Living Life on Purpose and with Passion.
