Sometimes we fall in love and we don't know why. That's me and Taumarunui. Here is the story:

The explanation of the difference is lovely, yet I am tempted to find out how it tastes to create a fruit salad with tomatoes! 
Remember That Knowledge & Wisdom Are NOT The Same Thing

I've known more than a few intelligent people in my life who didn't seem to have a shred of wisdom. You can be intelligent and not very smart all at the same time.

I work with a lot of people with advanced college degrees. They have Ph.D.’s and all kinds of letters after their names testifying to their vast knowledge. And yet many of them are incapable of showing good judgment in some of their life choices. These people are perfect illustrations that knowledge and wisdom are not the same thing.*

Knowledge is the accumulation of information, while wisdom is the ability to make wise decisions. Knowledge can be lost and gained over a lifetime but, once gained, wisdom stays constant. Knowledge can become outdated, and new knowledge becomes necessary. However, wisdom remains timeless.

Although the pursuit of knowledge is an admirable goal, having knowledge without wisdom is pretty close to useless. Wisdom allows us to take the knowledge we have and apply it to our circumstances and make smart choices.

A little wisdom will get us a lot further in life than a lot of knowledge. And while a classroom might be the best place to acquire knowledge, the best place to gain wisdom is through our own personal experiences. So let's start becoming more 'wise' today.

How We Set Ourselves Up to Fail

Why do we believe so many things are impossible? Whether it’s changing jobs, finding love or losing weight, we set ourselves up for failure when we decide something is impossible before we ever begin. 

We need to change our perspective. It all starts with believing we can do the seemingly “impossible”. As the Queen in Alice in Wonderland said, “Sometimes I’ve believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

No matter what impossibility we pursue, we need to remember there’ll be setbacks. And we need to be prepared for them. But that’s all they are – setbacks. They’re not immovable roadblocks. 

So let’s get on with it! Let’s take the Queen’s advice and start our days believing in something that seems impossible. Set yourself up for success, not failure, by seeing the impossible as possible and setbacks as just setbacks.

And People Tell Themselves "I Have No Talent"

Many of us tell ourselves "I have no talent." Look what one guy did just by playing with his coffee!

We all have the ability to take something ordinary and make it extra-ordinary. We just need to try. And it starts with stopping the negative talk we tell ourselves like, "I have no talent."

Start playing with your coffee - it's part of your personal development plan!
