Practically everyone believes that he has "been around." Even if not college educated, all of us have seen and done a great deal, learned many of life's important lessons. Hold that thought.
Now, write down in one sentence the most important thing you have learned in life. Reflect on your countless travels and travails. Reach deep into your own knowledge and wisdom. And share that with the rest of us.
I'm quite sure that the overwhelming majority of you are not up to this simple request. Nevertheless, that thought will trouble you. And it should.
I know it has me since I first considered assembling wisdom, knowledge, conciseness, reflection, expression, and sharing.
You cannot help but be humbled by the difficulty of answering the question, and the pathetic inadequacy of your response.
What is the most important thing you have learned in life?
