Most of us are being bombarded with way too much information. I get about 200 e-mails a day. I make at least 10 phone calls a day and receive 10 or more daily. Then there is the information coming to me from many other sources as well. I avoid watching the news, however I do read articles in the NY Times and other sources that interest me. I am always studying and learning something new ever day.Taking a webinar or going to a class. My mind can go into overload if I do not sift through what’s relevant and valuable to me.
Information is useless until all that data is processed down, and made simple. Until I can take it and apply it as knowledge and then reduces to further into wisdom, it has no relevance in my life.
Knowledge is the the accumulation of facts and date that you have learned about or experienced.
Wisdom is the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting.
Knowledge is gained through learning facts.
Wisdom comes from observing experiences and learning from them in a way that affects future decisions and behaviors.
Knowledge is measuring that a desert path is 3.6 miles long.
Wisdom is bringing enough water for the duration of that hike.
Knowledge allows for change in response to new information or analyzes.
Wisdom is time less.
Wisdom is “Who we are” vs. “What we do.”
Wisdom governs choices, is the pursuit of knowledge, better communication and relationships.
I believe for the human race to survive and thrive we must surpass the information age and learn to be wise, which has no age, it is time less.
Here is a short video to help your quest for wisdom.
