If you try to understand everything you won’t get anything done.
But if you don’t try to understand things enough you also will run into a lot of trouble.
The learning experience is a practice of assimilating a small amount of information into an understanding and then acting on that understanding, then, through the practice of the skill, developing a deeper understanding that equips you for a new dive into new information.
Feeling that you have to understand everything ahead of time is as destructive as believing that you know everything already.
Moving through life requires a cyclical movement upwards back and forth through working to understand, acting on that understanding, and moving to a higher level of understanding, and then practicing again at a higher level. Stay too long in either place and you will stagnate.
