  • Reading non-fiction book: you are not reading the book, but you are extracting knowledge from the book: electronic or printed medium
  • Watching learning video: extracting knowledge from the video medium

  • work requires [enabling capabilities]: infrastructure, office, team (or lack of distraction), tools. Popcorn would not do if you are going to take notes, pen and paper may be better. Or YiNote extension.

  2. We apply knowledge
