Opinions only count on surveys

There is something to be said about credentials.

It must be human nature to give your unsolicited testimony or opinion to others.

Every now and again you find a very reputable source that gives good information. These are the ones who are experts or enthusiasts in a particular field.

I’m no expert in nutrition, but I can definitely explain why processed food is bad for you, how Vitamin C fights cancer and how to reverse diabetes. I lost 75 pounds in 2011 as a result of following my research. However, even with my success, I’m smart enough to know that I still don’t know more than a person with advanced degrees in the field.

And there are some who have no experience in anything, but have an opinion on everything. These people have time on their hands to just sit back and form opinions. Every job looks easy, every decision could have been better and the worlds problems would be solved if we just listened to them.

I have experienced my fair share of these folks. And the thing I wonder most is, why wouldn’t they just study the topics they have opinions about? Why not at least be a life long learner and spend the extra time reading. Or better yet, advanced degrees are now available online. Wouldn’t it be cool to go to college and put some perspective on those opinions?

I know, I know. I’m dreaming. They won’t go to school and they won’t keep their opinions to themselves. So why am I writing this blog? Because it’s nicer than calling them an April fool! 🙂
