Knowledge Mobilization (KMb): Multiple Contributions & Multi-Production Of New Knowledge

The Bigger Picture Of Knowledge Connections

Each day is an opportunity to share all the knowledge that you can to make the world a better place.  You don’t need to over think it – or to push knowledge on other people by trying to share the most “intelligent” or “academic” parts of knowledge. Sharing life experiences as knowledge and being open to the life experiences of others as knowledge with the purpose of making the world a better place for everyone is all it takes. Don’t try to be an intellectual.  It’s not so much the number of the things you know but the sharing of knowledge from life experiences to create better understanding and empathy with others that counts if it can contribute to social benefit. Knowledge sharing for this purpose makes a single life a success. With enough people sharing knowledge for this purpose, you have a successful community, country, continent – and planet.

I’ve always been the type of person who likes to see things as smaller pieces of a bigger picture.  For any great accomplishment, many smaller pieces had to be finished in order to create the bigger goal.  There’s a great saying that a long journey is made up of many footsteps. When I keep this in mind, I’m not too hard on myself for not knowing everything – rather, I’m happy to share the knowledge I have with those I meet –  or listen to the knowledge that others have to share with me if I know it might make things better for life in general. Every knowledge connection we make in our lives can have an outward ripple effect to connect with all the knowledge shared on this planet. One never knows the knowledge shared with one person that can be combined with the knowledge of other people to create greater knowledge for everyone – all from the knowledge of one person. And that one person can always be you.

Everyone has life experiences. Everyone has knowledge to share. Do you choose to share it for benefit or harm?

Sometimes I have great knowledge connections with others when I am open to learn something new – or help someone else deal more effectively with a situation based on my own life experience. After all, one day each of us is going to die, and I’m pretty sure that when that happens, I’m not going to regret not having spent more time doing physical work over making knowledge connections. When that time comes, I’m going to be more grateful for having spent more time with loved ones, learning about the lives of others and the world around me, and for having done my best to share knowledge to make the world a better place from the place I live in this world.  I’ll be glad for the time I’ve spent interacting and learning from other people, and not necessarily for the time I’ve spent getting things done. It’s not about the amount of knowledge – it’s about the knowledge connections.
