Wisdom for A More Meaningful and Purposeful Life

Wisdom for A More Meaningful and Purposeful Life

Three major things shape how we evaluate our life purpose:

  • The job or assignments we hold in societies, from communities through companies to national political leadership.
  • Overcoming tragedy or life-shaping event: for example, surviving an accident which makes people appreciate life.
  • Adding meaning in the lives of others: for example, raising a child.

Approach that purpose with Wisdom. Yes, seek Wisdom, not just expertise and knowledge. Many in the world have knowledge, but they miss when that knowledge should be applied. Inefficient application of knowledge derails our purpose.

Note that expertise does not mean experience. I have seen many people who failed the same tests many times. In other words, being exposed to a problem does not mean one has learnt anything to overcome that test in the future. Sure, experience is important but the ability to quickly learn something new to apply the right solution is even more impactful.

It comes down to the pursuit of wisdom towards a more meaningful and purposeful life. Wisdom is when knowledge is well applied and is not always in correlation with experience and age. Simply,  at an age, we can apply wisdom in families, offices and national political chambers.
