Are you Smart or Wise?
Many people advice you to be smart, but let us examine what it really means to be smart.
It is an adjective to describe a clean, tidy and stylish appearance. It can also denote an intelligence or an ability to think and understand quickly in difficult situations.
In my own words and based on my understanding, smart people learn from their own life’s experiences.
Now let us take a look at what being wise means.
It shows the ability to make good judgments, based on a deep understanding and experience of life. For me, wise people learn from other people’s life’s experiences, not making the same mistakes smart people did.
In conclusion: are you smart or wise?
