Two Minute Drill: Wisdom
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is wisdom. Benjamin Franklin stated that “an investment in knowledge always pays the best interest”. When I talk to my colleagues about the challenges that they face in their businesses and their practices, I’ll often say you either have a people problem, a process problem, or a wisdom problem.
The same thing rings true in our personal lives. We either have people problems, we have process problems, which are personal habits problems, and/or wisdom problems. Wisdom is the secret sauce! It combines knowledge with context and perspective and makes that knowledge actionable. Much of that perspective and context comes from our own lives, but equally as important, it comes from other people’s lives, the community that we surround ourselves with, their context, their perspective, and their experiences.
This got me thinking about this conference that I’m going to be attending in just over three weeks called CADREcon. My good friends, Melanie and Derek Coburn created this amazing community of not just entrepreneurs, but amazing people. Every year they put on this conference for us called CADREcon, and this year they’re bringing in 14 world-class speakers. It’s going to be amazing content, but equally as important is not just what we learn, but the shared experiences and conversations that we share afterward to make that knowledge actionable.
I want to encourage you to seek out a community and seek out learning and combine those two things to create more actionable wisdom in your life. Because when you do that, you’re not just learning things, you’re taking action to make your life better. By the way, by sharing your context, and your perspective, you get to help make the lives of others better as well.
If you want to go to CADREcon, click here, check out the event, DM me or email me and I’ll get you the secret code. Act fast, I will only be able to give the discount to a few people.
That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. I’ll talk to you all next week.
