“When you are young, you have raw smarts; when you are old, you have wisdom.”
—Arthur C. Brooks, Harvard professor, PhD social scientist, bestselling author
I agree with today’s quote in most cases, especially for individuals with a growth mindset and a propensity toward lifelong learning.
The pursuit of knowledge and experience takes time.
Raw smarts and wisdom build at different rates.
Consider a heavy rain as it fills a puddle versus years of rain carving a river’s path.
How has your growth and development journey evolved over the years?
Where and how have you stepped beyond acquiring raw smarts to embracing the gift of wisdom?
