Tacit Knowledge

From Tacit Dimension, Polanyi (1966):

…the notion of tacit “knowing”: here, the outcome of the action is the focal, or proximal, point and the doing (achieving the outcome) is characterised as a distal process. Through practice, the attention of the doer is focused on the outcome rather than the means of achieving the outcome.
