Chapter 1 – Note 1 | Annoying

 

Then, without having the understanding of wisdom, wisdom becomes just another pretty knick-knack on the trophy shelf of your life. As meaningless as that rhodium plated, vinyl clad, wood-grained plastic trophy you won for taking the Intramural (fill-in-the-blank) Championship ten years ago. It was important to you and perhaps others at the time, but pretty irrelevant now. Unless of course, you have applied or transferred the skills that got you that trophy, on a regular and on-going basis, in your life or the life of others. (translation: appropriation and application)

But how do you apply or transfer it to the rest of your life? Ah, there you go again. Jumping right to the granular level. “What do I need to do… right now?” And you will have learned nothing. It’s like giving someone directions based on right and left turns. As soon as you miss one or there’s a detour – you’re lost. But if you have a map and an understanding of North/South/East/West, you can still get there. You need to own it.
