I have a habit of diving into a new subject and trying to read and learn everything there is. Usually this is just impossible especially as I have a wide range of interests. So I end up feeling guilty that I did not finish learning everything there was to know about my subject. The Triad "There are three foundations of wisdom: discretion in learning, memory in retaining and eloquence in telling." has shown me that there is nothing wrong about being selective about what I choose to delve deeply into and that it is OK to investigate anything that interests me without having to learn everything there is to know about it. What a relief, I can relax and study what I wish for as long as I want and to what depth I want to explore. To be realistic I will probably never know all there is to know about any one subject BUT I can know, remember and speak with knowledge about a few select subjects. So for me yes it is important to "know your stuff" but it is also important to choose my stuff.
