I recently watched a TEDx presentation ""Sustainable Strategy" - Big Ideas - Changing the World Today - What is Wisdom? - Colin Coyne" --> http://hines.blogspot.com/2012/02/tedxbirmingham-colin-coyne-purple-dots.html

My greatest take away from this presentation was "THE WISDOM EQUATION" presented on a slide.
I have never seen such a clear understanding of Wisdom.
This explains why we have such great synergy when we are able to work in groups in a positive and objective way.
So simple! So awesome! So powerful! ...
Paul's DEED - "idea of this" and implementation through forums, permies.com, and richsoil.com should be nurtured, cherished, and duplicated for other world problems...
It seems if everyone understood this, and practiced it, we could fix most problems of the world, in a better way...

Invite comments and thoughts on "THE WISDOM EQUATION"

With Regards and Respect For All,
Monte Hines

synergy - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synergy - Wikipedia - The term synergy was refined by R. Buckminster Fuller, who analyzed some of its implications more fully and coined the term Synergetics

You can't make mistakes without having some experience, so there would never be anything *to* divide by zero.

Hey then the american population should be sitting in solitude waiting for the pilgrims. no experience no mistakes... oh I see the self reflection+objectivity clause would sink them. Bummer. you think we should tell them?
Of course, I found a very beautiful couch. Definitely. And this tiny ad:
