KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM

Wisdom from the dictionary definition says :scholarly knowledge or learning. Also defines it as a state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right..................

It seems to an extent both words wisdom and knowledge can be used interchangeably. Basically i believe i have gained a lot from learning here at Warwick, but i believe there is still a lot to be gained through the experiences we've had as well as the experiences of others which we will have outside the walls of school. Therefore having the quest for knowledge constantly either to implement in my personal or professional life i trust will help me have a better understanding of what is needed to be achieved.

I tend to reckon very much with these quotes from these two great people:

Albert Einstein's says "Wisdom is not a product of schooling but the lifelong attempt to acquire it"

Dalai Lama says "Share your knowledge, it's a way to achieve immortality".

The fundamental nature of blogging among all the other means of information sharing i suppose is to pass ideas across. I hope even after KBAM and Warwick while in our various places of work, we are able to continue this culture of knowlegde sharing and encourage others we work with especially those we believe have a lot of residual knowledge (tacit) stored in their heads but find it difficult to communicate.

    I really hope so too Tega.So often people preach more than they practice.I hope we will be among those few who also practice what they preach. We have come such a long a way but I still feel as though one of the biggest challenges we will face is to get people to see that sharing of knowledge will not disadvantage them as much as they think it will.Yes knowledge is power but its really sad when people hold on to knowledge thinking that they get the upper-hand (competitive advantage). I have experienced a lot of cases (at Uni especially since I don’t have much work experience) where people aren’t open to share what they know.But what if moguls like Steve Jobs decided to keep all the innovation to themselves and make electronic devices for themselves and their families?but Jobs shared what he knew best and look at the impact he has made in the world,even now that he is gone,the future generation will know who he was!
