If you do not make the insight a behavior or share it, or cannot summon it when needed, what is it except intellectual masturbation, making you feel virtuous in the moment but really wasting your time?

Turn insights into knowledge, translating the actionable into behaviors, noting the useful, and memorizing the essential.

For examples, take the titles of these posts; or read this excellent and pithy essay by Paul Graham.

He knows nothing who does not profit from what he knows.
