“Intellect without implementation is ignorance, not intelligence."
By definition: intellect is understanding objectively, implementation of intellect is intelligence, knowledge is a branch of intelligence (intellect plus implementation) and ignorance is lack of knowledge which is a branch of intellect (understanding but not implementing).
Further, this is why we call academics “intellectual” and knowledge workers “practitioners.” One could be both of course. From a scriptural perspective, “If any man will do his will, he shall know” (John 7:17). Vast difference between learning and knowing. The gap is in the doing (implementation vs ignorant to the doing).”
“While having information is a crucial first step, more information isn´t necessarily better. Take a look at your bookshelves and the list of seminars you have attended. If you have read more than one book about a subject or attended more than one seminar but still haven’t reached your goals, then your problem is not lack of information but rather lack of implementation.”
We place the highest value on actual implementation and taking action. There are many things one doesn’t understand and therefore, we ask them why don’t you just go ahead and take action, try to do something? You realize how little you know and you face your own failures and you simply can correct those failures and redo it again and at the second trial you realize another mistake or another thing you didn’t like so you can redo it once again. So by constant improvement, or, should I say, improvement based upon action, one can rise to the higher level of practice and knowledge.
"In spiritual growth, it is important to avoid imbalances between academic or intellectual learning and practical implementation. Otherwise there is a danger that too much intellectualization will kill the more contemplative practices and too much emphasis on practical implementation without study will kill the understanding. There has got to be a balance."
“It is much more worthwhile to implement only one bright idea than collecting a thousand of them.”
“Reading one page of a book and implementing is much better than reading the book to completion and doing nothing. Books are meant to be used.”
~Mac Duke The Strategist
"Ideas are useless unless used. The proof of their value is in their implementation. Until then, they are in limbo."
"Successful organizations understand the importance of implementation, not just strategy, and, moreover, recognize the crucial role of their people in this process."
"It's not the ideas; it's design, implementation and hard work that make the difference."
"Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard."
"The best big idea is only going to be as good as its implementation."
"The revolution that's required isn't a revolution of radical ideas, but the implementation of ideas we already have."
"If you focus on design, you can call yourself a designer. If you focus on the implementation of your design, you can call yourself an architect."
"Without implementation, all of our Bible studies are worthless."
"The way to end corruption is a progressive, policy driven state with proper implementation."
"Knowledge alone is impotent, it needs to be implemented in our actions."
"Implementation is like climbing the MOUNTAIN, Having an implementation partner makes the journey EASY and FUN."
