The more sand that has escaped that has escaped from the hourglass of life, the clearer we should see through it. – Jean Paul
Including the word “should” at the end of this really hits the nail on the head.
Are there people that get older but not wiser? Yes!
Are there people who don’t learn along the way? Yes!
Are there people who mature and get wiser? Yes!
The should part makes a difference. Age does not equal wisdom. Experience does not equal skill.
Practiced experience creates skill.
A life thoughtfully and reflectively examined can lead to wisdom.
Are you examining your life’s experiences? Are you carefully and consistently building skills and experience towards something useful?
Make it a great day.
