Item description for Wisdom, The Forgotten Factor of Success (UK Edition) by Philip Baker...
'Many mistakenly muse that with memory banks filled with knowledge they have the ingredients necessary for success. Yet, life is not a game of Trivial Pursuit. Life is more like chess. Knowledge is required, but foresight, cunning and intuition are more essential. . . . . . . Wisdom is not a skill that is learned. Neither is it about information that is acquired. Knowledge is well and good in its own place, but wisdom is an essential for successful living. The ancient book of Proverbs calls it 'The Principal Thing' and enjoins the reader to drop all else in its pursuit. . . . Wisdom has something to do with the soul. It comes from within. Any input such as education, reading or relationships simply fertilise and water the growing plant. The seed, and thus the potential for wise living, dwells deep within us all and will only be released by decision, discipline and the desire to explore and organise our inner world.' In 'Wisdom: The Forgotten Factor of Success', Philip Baker gets at the heart of what success really is and how it can be appropriated in our lives. 'If you desire a thriving business, a vital marriage or continued growth of character, then wisdom is what you need.' In his thoughtful, yet easy to read style, he explores: The Anatomy of Wisdom The Aspects of Wisdom The Application of Wisdom.
