Reading an excellent article about marketing does not make one a good marketer. You have to experience the idea. That means you need to take the risk to apply what you’ve read.

The moment you take action on an idea, it becomes yours. Your experience is yours alone. And whatever the result of your experimentation is a new experience.

If the experience changed how you think and do things, then you can say you’ve learned.
