Our hunger for knowledge can be at the roots of our failings or our success.
Our hunger for knowledge can distract us or it can keep us engaged in a lifelong quest for deep learning and understanding.
Some learning enhances our lives, some is irrelevant and simply distract us.

Knowledge and information flow is like food. If you think all food is good, if you consume indiscriminately, then you will likely have health problems.
Just as we need to learn how to eat healthy, we also need to learn how to manage our data streams in healthy ways.
I believe what we spend your time on, shapes and defines who we become.
It is important to filter what we read and the knowledge we acquire.
