OCCASIONALLY WE HAVE TO HAVE A PROPER FUNERAL, PAY OUR RESPECTS, AND LAY TO REST, THE WISE ADVICE FROM OTHERS, AS WELL AS FOR OUR OWN INSIGHTFUL EXPERIENCES, PERCEPTIONS, AND WELL THOUGH-OUT ASSUMPTIONS, WHEN ANY OFF THESE ARE NO LONGER HELPFUL IN IMPROVING, OR RESOLVING OUR CURRENT PROBLEMS.

It is so important for us to be able to properly let go (of thoughts, ideas, beliefs, experiences) in order for us to be able to move on. Glean truths and applicable advice from others as well as our own wisdom, but don’t be married to these if they do not unstick us or helpContinue reading “OCCASIONALLY WE HAVE TO HAVE A PROPER FUNERAL, PAY OUR RESPECTS, AND LAY TO REST, THE WISE ADVICE FROM OTHERS, AS WELL AS FOR OUR OWN INSIGHTFUL EXPERIENCES, PERCEPTIONS, AND WELL THOUGH-OUT ASSUMPTIONS, WHEN ANY OFF THESE ARE NO LONGER HELPFUL IN IMPROVING, OR RESOLVING OUR CURRENT PROBLEMS.”

OFTEN, WE ARE NOT READY TO HEAR HELPFUL WISDOM, NEEDED ADVICE, OR PERTINENT INSIGHTS. HOW WE DISMISS THESE PERSONS’ HELPFULNESS, DETERMINES WHETHER OR NOT THEY WILL APPROACH US AGAIN WITH THE VALUABLE CONTENTS OF THESE AND FUTURE CONVERSATIONS.

Be insightful enough to remove our egos and become more gracious and thankful. Then go back, explain, apologize, and reinitiate these life-changing conversations. Charles Tadros, M.D. When we listen, understand that we can become anxious, overwhelmed, and embarrassed. Understand what is happening to you. Make no excuses, but explain to the speaker your internal conversationContinue reading “OFTEN, WE ARE NOT READY TO HEAR HELPFUL WISDOM, NEEDED ADVICE, OR PERTINENT INSIGHTS.

SOMETIMES THAT KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE, WISDOM, AND ABILITY TO ACCURATELY PREDICT (especially risk-filled events) APPEARS TO NOT BE THAT NEEDED, AT LEAST NOT FOR THE MOMENT…BUT JUST YOU WAIT AND SEE!

IF YOUR CHILDREN, OR YOUR YOUNGER SELF, WOULD HAVE LISTENED, WHAT WISDOM AND EXPERIENCE (from you or from others) WOULD YOU HAVE WANTED TO IMPART ON THEM?

ALL FORMS OF EDUCATION ARE ABOUT OBTAINING INFORMATION AND WISDOM TO BE USED IN THE HERE AND NOW. JUST AS IMPORTANT IS HOW EDUCATION TEACHES US HOW TO BECOME EVEN BETTER, AND MORE CURIOUS, INDEPENDENT LEARNERS.

FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE, WE NOW HAVE A COMMODITIZATION OF INFORMATION AND KNOWLEDGE. WE DO NOT NEED TO SPEND BIG SUMS OF MONEY IN ORDER TO GO TO SCHOOL. HOWEVER, WISDOM AND EXPERIENCE ARE STILL DIFFICULT TO COME BY, AND, TYPICALLY, IT TAKES YEARS TO INCORPORATE THESE INTO A FLUENCY IN THE WAY THAT WE THINK, SPEAK, AND ACT.

WISDOM IS, IN PART, KNOWING WHAT TO DO, WHEN TO DO IT, WHEN NOT TO DO IT, AND HOW TO DO IT CORRECTLY, THE FIRST TIME. EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT IS WHEN WISDOM IS THE ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE AND CORRECT OUR OWN MISTAKES, SOONER AND FASTER.
