how to develop wisdom

one of the famouse chinese educator confusiouse said that if you want to be a wise man the most important thing is reflective.

everyday, before you fall a sleep, you should spend some time on thinking what you did today, what you learned from the today's experience and which behavior you can improve it in the future.

i agree with his opinion, reflective is the most important thing to be a wise man.

the famouse scientist Einstein said be the geniuess need 99% of hard working and 1% of talent.

as far as i concered 99% refers to do sth and do reflective after that to achive improvement.

for example, in order to get the great mark in the exam, we must do some exercise to prepare for it.

in my opinion, do exercise is important. but do reflection after doing exercise is also important.

in this way, you can know what kind of knowledge you are not good at. and then you can work harder in this area to cover it.

(by the way, after i realized this theory, i never afraid of fail, because the fail can help me to do reflective better and help me to realize the disadvantages of me better. it is helpful to my furture development.)

in addition, ask from the expericenced people is also a way to achieve wisdom.

for example,

i used to work very hard but the mark i got from the exam is not good. Thus, i will ask for some study experience from several students who have good mark.

after that, i will think whether their study way is also useful to me. whether i can use it or not.

i think in the future, when i start working, it is the same.

if i am not showing good working performance in the work, i will ask the managers to know how to achive the improvement.

it is a kind of knowledge sharing. In this way, i saved time to investigate a new way by myself

    Excellent post Lin. If organizations could develop tolerance to failure they would become stronger. As one of my bosses said to me, “I expect you to make mistakes. If you don’t make mistakes I’ll assume that you are doing nothing. However, don’t make a culpably negligent mistake because that is not acceptable.”

    You also make a good point about modelling excellence and it is important to take the time to understand how someone is doing something well so that we can reflect and adapt what we do to improve our own performance.
