"A single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study." ~Chinese Proverb
What wise person can you learn from in your life?
If that person has gone what did you learn from them? Do you keep the knowledge inside?
I don't have all the answers. A lot of people ask me for my wise words and I can dish them out but sometimes I feel like shouting...."I don't know, who does? Does anyone really have stuff figured out?" I have learnt a lot on my journey in life so far....there is still so much out there it scares me with it's vastness sometimes. I want to know it all and yet I don't want to know any of it.
A single conversation with a wise man is all very well but what about several conversations with several wise men or women? Would that be better than ten years of study?
I am getting back into a routine here in New Zealand and part of it is surrounding myself with people who are wisdomful, people I can learn and grow from just as my clients learn and grow with coaching.
I am beginning to contact these people and meeting them for chats over coffees......
