Knowledge to Wisdom
Seek wisdom to chase excellence.
1. Knowledge is horizontal; wisdom is vertical. Vertical is better. Are you vertical or horizontal?
2. Wisdom is caught, not taught. What are you doing to catch wisdom?
3. Wisdom is caught through reading great books, listening to the right information, exposure to association with people much wiser than you, and seeking counsel from great mentors. Who are you associating with and do they have the results you want?
4. Rise early in the morning to have time to think, plan, dream, and pray. Are you praying for wisdom or praying for getting out of the troubles you got into it?
5. Stick to what you know and do it better than everyone else. What are you intentionally doing to achieve mastery?
6. Face the things you fear and the death of your fears is certain. Why not face your fears square in their face so you can be greater than your fears?
7. The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook. Are you overlooking the urgent so you can put your energy into the important?
Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
