Lots of people can get “book learning,” but it doesn’t have the impact of “life learning.” That’s the difference between knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is out there as information – that is the preparation step. But wisdom is the art of skillful living – that is the application step. You learn by doing! Thanks for the reminder that the greatest teacher is in doing. Bob Thanks Bob. Over the weekend, was reminded of how much people know about the benefits of staying active. Participated in a track meet Saturday and actually got to feel the benefits first hand. It was amazing. That does sound amazing! It sounds like you had some immediate applications experience! I hope you have a great and magical week! Thanks again Bob. I treasure the fact we’ve been part of this community for four years running. Your insights, and more importantly, your participation, have been inspiring on my end. Thank you. Seriously, thank you. Comments are closed.
