We pride ourselves on the knowledge we have gained, either through standard education and/or the “school of life.”
Let’s face it: there’s something to be said for experience and wisdom. And one thing to be said is too often one word: limitation.
Someone once pointed out to me that it’s possible to be “too smart”, as that million-ways-of-explaining-something nature often prevents the key source of progress and development: action.
In college, I heard the phrase “The As and Bs end up working for the Cs and Ds.”
Look for yourself at your world, and the greater world around you. Not to knock intelligence, but the ability to be unreasonable (act outside of limiting reasons/
excuses) does not always arise from wisdom.
On one hand, there’s no integrity in promoting uneducated ignorance. Yet, on the other hand, it’s highly honorable to eradicate questionable wisdom…especially when it limits forward thinking and expansion.
As we seek to reep the most goodies from our career and life experience, perhaps some ignorance of what we can or can’t do or what is or isn’t possible in our life can source more bliss.
