Knowledge is certainly power. But through wisdom, which is being able to have critical thinking and decide (“wisely”) how to choose the right knowledge/information, discarding the useless/erroneous one, and apply it correctly to the right needs/problem/circumstances, is the sum total of correct knowledge through wisdom.

How true! I cannot agree with you more. Besides my education I have been through the school of hard knocks.
My consulting does not seek to label a problem, like it is done today. I seek to find the inherent cause, and solve those problems to get the “body” right.

Jay – I wholeheartedly agree with you about the importance of wisdom and synthesis.

Another line of thinking is that knowledge has value when it solves a problem. That’s the definition we use in Intangible Capital. For a business, being wise is probably always a good thing. But being wise and practical–priceless. I would call it “applied wisdom.”
