Knowing is not walking

"There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path."
~ Morpheus , character from The Matrix, played by Laurence Fishburne.
This week, while zapping a bit, I landed on a rerun of The Matrix (part 1). Having seen it lots of times, I intended not to keep watching but I failed :). The movie contains so many fascinating ingredients (storyline, acting, special effects, references to literature, etc) that it never fails to hold my attention. This quote about the difference between knowing the path and walking the path is an intriguing one. It reminds me of how the solution-focused approach is not so much explanation focused. Instead it is progress focused. It is a theme I have written about several times too. Full understanding is not necessary for making progress. Here is an example: You don't have to fully understand yourself or anyone else.
