First Attempts In LearningSince know-how includes knowing what doesn't work - being wrong - how can mistakes be a problem? When you've tried and discarded enough ways of what doesn't work, you're left with what does! Mistakes are an inevitable part of gaining essential know-how, the secret of success is to realize that failure is entirely okay rather than wrong.
Wisdom is personal, it can't be given or learned, and that
which is given is never wisdom.
"The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is
the illusion of knowledge."
