Gaining Wisdom From Knowledge In The Business Universe
WISDOM Wisdom or sapience is the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight. - Wikipedia

All the world’s digital knowledge stored on CD-Rom would reach to the moon 280,707.5 miles (451,755 km).


We always seek talent that has experience in the fields we are trying to fulfill. Experience is another ingredient for wisdom


When we gain empathy and discernment of a thing… In the newly published book, “The Sniper Mind” by David Amerland examines these attributes as they pertain to the Military’s trained Sniper. They have the knowledge, experience and understanding of a thing. Even in the first chapter you will explore nearly impossible feats done through sheer willpower and wisdom. The Sniper Mind is in my reading list. It should be in yours!

Common Sense

What is common sense? Sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts. Normality in any given culture is perceived quite differently from one another. And, should be recognized and given into account when dealing in an international situation. Even the way crops are harvested differently in various cultures. The way you do it might be perceived by another that you certainly do not have the common sense God gave a goose! I believe these are a combination of knowledge, experience and understanding for a specific culture / region of the world. And interesting book to read is The Wisdom of Crowds by James Surowiecki.


What is insight? the capacity to gain an accurate and deep intuitive understanding of a person or thing. My creativity for this content piece was inspired from a private interaction with @NathanLatka. He was doing a focus study on the visual functionality of a few company websites. He wanted MY insight along with that of several others. So, Think Data!

That’s why I love open sourced in everything. The human collaboration. The culmination of knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insight create wisdom. I invite you to share your comments and INSIGHTS on ways one might quantify wisdom?

    Yeah, I used to have Google comments. They had no notification system (and Google let them quietly die). Once G+ went I took them off and with them hundreds and hundreds of comments and reactions. (sigh).

    I love the way your site looks, though I'm not really the Jony Ive. How easy is it for someone to discover the real author of this note? Please also check that the links in this note have no rel="me" attribute on them.

    Clicking this should not cause an alert. This div should not alert. Try clicking this link <script>alert("encoded-xss")</script> and this too. Mouse over this should not cause an alert. This broken should not throw an alert. Neither should . Please look at the Owasp XSS prevention cheat sheet for more information.
