Knowledge can influence your productivity. It can also be born from your productivity.
You need to be knowledgeable in whatever you’re doing to be successful at it. If you know what you are doing, then you can appropriately take the next steps toward accomplishing your task — which is what it’s like to be productive. This is why people who have been doing a certain job for years are better at it than those who are just starting out — they have gained knowledge of the job through experience.
However, sometimes being productive means you’re gaining knowledge. Doing something and failing can be just as rewarding as succeeding. You gain knowledge through these failures, and this knowledge will make you more productive in the future.
Here are 15 of my favorite quotes about knowledge and productivity:
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou
Fake it until you make it. Just by trying your best, you will gain knowledge about your tasks and learn how to perform them better in the future.
“A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.” – Kahlil Gibran
Once you gain this knowledge, make sure you use it productively. It’s a waste of time to sit around and do nothing with what you have learned.
“Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.” – Peter F. Drucker
By gaining knowledge, you have opened yourself up to opportunities other people don’t have.
“Without knowledge action is useless and knowledge without action is futile.” – Abu Bakr
You need knowledge to be productive, and you need to be productive to get the most out of what you know.
“The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.” – Herbert Spencer
Sometimes being productive is more important than knowledge because you learn more about something once you do it.
“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.” – Vince Lombardi
Will power is key to success because it means you’re motivated to accomplish your goals. Knowledge comes from the process of achieving these goals.
“If you want to be truly successful, invest in yourself to get the knowledge you need to find your unique factor. When you find it and focus on it and persevere, your success will blossom.” – Sydney Madwed
Sometimes gaining knowledge is an internal struggle. Try to learn about yourself and find the factor that will make you more productive and successful.
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Gaining knowledge isn’t about reading a book. It’s about learning every day from your experiences and then using the knowledge acquired from those experiences to get things done today.
“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” – Pablo Picasso
You might not be productive because you’re afraid of doing something you’ve never done before. However, you have to do that thing in order to learn about it — and it will eventually become less scary.
“You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.” – Richard Branson
Failure is the best way to learn. Don’t let fear stop you from being productive.
“Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.” – Paul Meyer
Productivity comes from being knowledgeable on how to accomplish something. Learn about your goals and then focus on doing them.
“Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice.” – Anton Chekhov
There’s no point in being knowledgeable about something if you don’t use what you know.
“Don’t postpone joy until you have learned all of your lessons. Joy is your lesson.” – Alan Cohen
Be productive and create a better life before you try to learn everything about it. Knowledge can be applied as you go.

Knowledge and productivity go hand in hand. You can’t have one without the other.

Having knowledge about something already puts you way ahead of other people trying to do that same thing.
