No matter how many articles you read about a topic, there’s always something new
Knowing more information is always a good thing. Just because you don’t have a degree in the subject doesn’t mean that you can’t know as much as anyone else does about it. All of the important information is out there for you to research, you just need to find it and dig through it until you learn more. Even if you can’t find anything new on your topic, chances are someone has found something new and is ready to share it with the world. There are some great forums where people ask questions related to their interests so they can gain more knowledge or help others answer their questions. When you know more information than most people do on a topic, this gives you power over them.
When you have an open mind you absorb ideas better
When you have an open mind you can be more easily persuaded to look at different perspectives. You will be open to more information and are likely to get a lot of power in the process.
Compile notes from multiple sources – it will make your ideas richer
It’s important to know what sources you are using for your writing. Whenever possible, link back to the original source so that your reader knows where the information came from. If you are using a quote and paraphrasing it at the same time, use quotation marks around it when you first use it and put a citation at the end of the sentence in parentheses with the author’s name and page number.
Strive for objectivity – even if you disagree with some of the points in an article
There are many perspectives and opinions on the power of more information. A common theme in most of these perspectives is that information has a very powerful effect on decision-making. However, it is important to keep an open mind when reading other people’s opinions and ideas. Keep in touch with what you know to be true and don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise. If there is any conflicting information or differing opinion, it should be easy enough to find different sources that shed light on the subject from different angles.
