[Verb; ~ Pronunciation: /to/ /proh-gres/]
- Definition: Combining bits of old information to create something new. In effect, it means putting different things you learned into practice as a whole, but not in the manner you were taught. For example: using three different kinds of recipes to bake one new pie.
“Without a struggle, there can be no progress”

(Yes, that is a panda apron. My mum made it for me :3)
Knowledge is one thing, but if you never put what you learned to practice, it is just that: knowledge. And it will whither eventually.
If you want to keep progressing in life you need to put whatever you learned to the test, and mix bits and pieces of different aspects of your wisdom together to come up with something new.
A perfect yet simple example of this is my pear crumble…
