Need To Know!
Let me try to explain a few reasons and see if you will then agree that being an informed person and knowledgeable on current events is probably the best thing you can do to ensure a happy and fruitful life.
Consider something very basic to your happiness. Money. They say money can’t buy happiness but I assure you that not having money can sure create a lot of pressures on you that could lead to a very unhappy life. I am not talking about how much money you have but if you have enough to sustain the lifestyle you are accustom to. Your money is an asset. And all assets are affected by factors outside of your control. Don’t think so? Consider if you have all your money stuffed under a mattress because you don’t like banks. What is someone finds your money and takes it? That is an example of an outside influence dramatically changing your life. To counter that you may “learn” by keeping up with the news that the area you live in has had a big increase in home burglaries. That information may promote you to go buy a safe or put your money in a bank.
You need a car to get around in.
That is another asset. You are just trading one asset, your money for another, a vehicle. So do you just go buy the first thing you see? No, that would be stupid. You gather information about the best car to buy for the money you have. And how do you get this information? You watch TV shows about the best cars, you read articles, listen to the news, talk to people you know, visit car dealers. All those things are just exposing yourself to more information than you would have by keeping your eyes and ears closed.
The same logic applies to keeping up with what is going on in your city, your state, your country, and the world. Knowledge is power! The more knowledge you have, the more power you have over every aspect of your life. And that leads to a more productive and happy life. Plain and simple. If you think this is not true than all you have to do is a small experience. Give it a try. Go for six months burying your head in the sand and see how you do. Then go six months paying attention and having an open mind to learning about current events and everything going on around you. I bet you will be surprised to see the difference.
