The Battle Between Wisdom & Information

Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information? – T.S. Eliot

Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information? – T.S. Eliot

Think of all the information that gets thrown at us throughout our day. Be it at work, at home on Facebook, (at work on Facebook), or watching TV. The question is not what we consuming and viewing, but how we exercise wisdom based on what we’re learning. For every mindless cat video, can be a powerful message. An insight to be gained, or new perspective to view an issue from.

Sitting on information; not exercising the knowledge we gain from that information is doing a disservice to ourselves and those we impact. I chose to practice what I learn, to exercise wisdom, and to rise above the fog that is created through information overload.

See the cat video as simple information, and see the inspiration you gain as knowledge, to then practice wisdom.
