IT'S HUMP DAY! Well, unless you work on the weekends? How's your week progressing? Are you working towards one small change you can make? Hopefully, your week is progressing how you want it to. If it's not, are you going to get yourself back on track?
Wisdom. Do you possess it? Or do you consider wisdom and knowledge to be the same thing? The primary difference between the two words is that wisdom involves a healthy dose of perspective and the ability to make sound judgments about a subject while knowledge is simply knowing. Anyone can become knowledgeable about a subject by reading, researching, and memorizing facts. ...Wisdom is knowing when to say it. Wisdom can be acquired only through experience, but by itself, experience does not automatically confer wisdom.
"Insight is knowing that happiness is not the purpose of life, that it’s not the marker of the quality of life—it’s merely one of the many fleeting states of mind in the spectrum of full emotions. Those emotions don’t make up our lives; they are merely experiences.
Knowledge, wisdom, and insight all are valuable and all have a place in our lives. The difficulty lies in the fact that many of us are unclear as to their differences, often perceiving the terms and their application to be interchangeable. Being clear and consciously aware of how our minds are engaged may be important to getting the most out of all three. While acquiring and applying information is valuable in and of itself, we also need to distill and judge that information, and ultimately find the deeper meaning and relevance to the whole of our lives. Perhaps the truest form of knowing is in acquiring all three, and understanding how they each enhance the quality and experience of life."--Royale Scuderi
