You can NEVER know too much or have enough information. NEVER. Paralysis of analysis occurs with procrastinators REGARDLESS of the amount of information at their disposal.

A person can read a stat "1 out of 10 businesses fail." And use that as reasoning to not pursue starting a business, "that's enough information for me! Don't try. " and another can use that as a reason to start 10 businesses 'cause at least ONE will succeed based on the stat.

Those who go into a situation with bare minimum information are bound to make mistakes, that can cost them their lives. Mitigate risk by having information at hand.

In addition the summary of the article isn't encouraging "less knowledge"
"persistence, hard work, careful observation, experimentation, time." <---All of these combined require a gathering of information. Application is the key. Knowledge is nothing. Applied knowledge is the key.
