I love it when people ask simple questions that are difficult to answer. In a recent email from Jeremy Cowart, he mentioned how much time we spend sharing “our thoughts and our feelings on social media.” He added this brilliant question: “What if we put that much energy into documenting our wisdom?” Naturally this got me thinking about what wisdom is, how to document it, and what that would look like over time.

Individual Wisdom

  • Knowledge
  • Experience
  • Insight
  • Judgment
  • Action
  • Decision-making
  • Common Sense

Collective Wisdom

  • Principles
  • Guidelines
  • Rules
  • Mores

What is the external manifestation of wisdom?

How would you document your wisdom?
