What is wisdom and why is it so valuable?
Are you wise? Am I wise? How do any of us really know?
While I may or may not be wise, I do work very hard to take what I teach and use it personally. Why? Two reasons. To show how common sense ideas can be applied anywhere and because it actually makes my life better. Period.
Simple example, but I encourage you not to be tempted to dismiss it’s significance. I never capitalize my name. That’s a whole other story waiting to be told.
Back to the questions and the point.
What is wisdom? How about this thought:
“In the absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.” — anonymous
A few weeks ago (here’s the link if you want instant access: www.junglejeff.net/?p=257 ), I wrote a post that contained the essence of this quote.
Do you know how long I lived my life strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia?
Wwwwaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy too long.
Now, not so much. Not perfect by any means. Never will be.
But, I am more razor-focused on World-Class delivery and content than ever. Razor-focused.
I often wonder what took me so long to figure out the difference in results, when I’m razor-focused, compared to when I was loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.
Make it a GREAT, razor-focused day, because if you don’t, who will. Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂
PS. Tomorrow, the story of no caps. Maybe.
