How to Be Wise
Three Methods: Gaining Experience, Imitating Wisdom, Reflecting Questions and Answers,
Confucius once said that there were three ways to learn wisdom: "First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest." Gaining wisdom, the most prized of virtues across almost all cultures, is an exercise in life learning, careful analysis, and thoughtful action.



Method
1
 
Gaining Experience
 Be Wise  
Cultivate the mind of a beginner. Do you remember the first time you saw dinosaur bones at the museum? Or the first time you ate a really good peach? Your world expanded at that moment by a fraction and you became a little more wise. The Buddhist concept of "beginner's mind" refers to the approach of a person just starting out, filled with the wonder of new learning, and being challenged anew by it. This is the receptive state of mind embraced by the wise. 
Rather than prejudging situations, learn to keep your mind open and tell yourself "I don't know what to expect," which will allow you to learn and gain wisdom. When you cease to have a fixed idea of people, things, and situations surrounding you, you grow in wisdom by soaking up changes, new ideas, and don't set any person above or beneath you.

Ask lots of questions. Learning doesn't stop just because you might have graduated from high school or college, or that you've got kids and have lots of experience you'd like to teach them. Even if you're a teacher at the highest level, or an expert in your field, you're not done learning. A wise person questions their motivations, questions widely accepted knowledge, and learns to love asking questions in moments of ignorance, because a wise person knows when it is time to learn.

Anais Nin neatly summed up this need to continue learning: "Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death."
 Be Wise 
Slow down. Be still at least once a day, to allow yourself time to rest and to stop taking in the rush of the world. Being constantly busy and worrying incessantly about being seen as inadequate may make you a paragon of workplace virtue but it does not make you wise. Stop. Stand still. Take in what the unhurried perspective brings to you.

Fill your time with contemplation. Fill your free time with learning rather than distractions. If you find yourself filling downtime with television or video games, try to substitute one hour of reading for an hour of television, or choose instead to watch a nature documentary you've been meaning to watch. Better yet, go outside and go for a hike in the woods. Before long, you'll be

Think first and talk second. It's not always important to voice your opinion in a group, or to contribute something just because you can. Wise people don't always need to prove their knowledge. If your opinion is necessary, give it. An old adage goes, "The best samurai lets the sword rust in its scabbard."
This isn't to say you should withdraw socially, or never speak. Rather, be receptive to others and be a good listener. Don't just wait for your turn to speak because you think you're more wise than everyone else in the room. That's not wisdom, that's egotism.

Imitating Wisdom
 Be Wise 
Learn from mentors. Find people whom you respect and who emulate the values and ideals that represent wisdom. Look for people doing the things you find interesting and of importance. Ask those people questions. Listen with great care to what they have to say, for you will learn much from their experience and reflection.[3] When in doubt, ask your mentors for advice and guidance; while you don't necessarily have to agree with what they have to say, it will certainly give you food for thought.
Mentors don't have to be successful people, or people you want to "be like." The wisest person you know might be a bartender, not a professor of mathematics. Learn to recognize the wisdom in everyone.

Read everything. Read the writings of philosophers and social commentators. Read comics. Read Lee Child adventure novels. Read online or on mobile devices. Get a library card. Read contemporary Irish poetry. Read Melville. Read as if your life depended on it and form opinions about the things you read and talk with others about what you've read.
Read especially about your particular fields of interest, whether it be your job or your hobby. Read about other people's experiences and learn how others before you have dealt with situations that you're likely to face.

Share with your mentors. It's a mistake to think that the wise are above it all. Never troubled by their emotions, wise people float above the rest of us in an unfeeling bubble of their own making. Not true.
When you're feeling frustrated or disappointed in something, it's natural to want to discuss it with someone who will understand. Surround yourself with willing and receptive wise people who'll give you a sounding board. Be open with them and they'll be open with you.
Three People Playing Instruments
 Be Wise 
Practice humility. Is it wise to sell yourself? The business and marketing world have convinced us self promotion is a necessity, because we've managed to turn ourselves into commodities in need of a good sales pitch, and business language frequently reflects this. However, there is a huge difference between acknowledging to yourself and others that you are good at doing something and exaggerating a range of skill sets beyond your comfort zone just to keep up with the competition.
Being humble is not about abdicating your self-worth; rather, it's about being realistic and only emphasizing all that is good and capable within you. In turn, people will know that they can depend on your reliability for those traits.
Being humble is wise because it allows the real you to shine through. Humility also ensures that you respect the abilities of others rather than fearing them; the wisdom of accepting your own limitations and connecting with other people's strengths to bolster yours is infinite.

Be Wise  
Be there for others. Wise people don't have to live in caves, growing wizard beards in their hermitage. Exchange wisdom with others to help guide them. As a mentor and teacher yourself, you can help other people learn about critical thinking, embracing feelings, loving lifelong learning, and trusting themselves.
Avoid the temptation to use learning as a barrier against others. Knowledge is for sharing not hoarding, and wisdom will only grow when exposed to everyone else's ideas no matter how confronting they may be.

Reflecting
 Be Wise 
Learn to recognize your faults. The hardest journey is often the one that requires looking inside yourself and being honest about what you find. try to work out what beliefs, opinions, and biases you harbor. Unless you're willing to know yourself well and learn to love both the strengths and weaknesses within you, it is difficult to be wise. Knowing yourself provides the space in which you can grow and forgive yourself as you journey through life.

Be wary of any self-improvement advice that claims to have "secrets". The only "secret" to self-improvement is that it requires hard work and constancy. Beyond that, you can fiddle at the edges (attested to remarkably by the massive success of the self-help industry) but you cannot change the reality of having to do the work of personal introspection and reflection on the world yourself.

 Be Wise  
Accept that you can't know everything. The wisest of people have long been those who realize they actually know very little, often in spite of decades of learning and reflecting. The more you think about people, things, and events, the more it becomes clear that there is always more to know and that what you do know is but a pinhead amid all knowledge. Acceptance of the limitations of your own knowledge is a key to wisdom.
Don't confuse expertise for wisdom. Expertise refers to a high level of knowledge in a distinct field, whereas wisdom refers to the broader notion seeing the big picture of that knowledge, and to live calmly reassured of your decisions and actions in light of your knowledge.
 Be Wise 
Be responsible for yourself. Only you can know who you are and only you can be responsible for your ultimate choices. If you've spent years doing what was right according to someone else's standards rather than your own, you're not being responsible for yourself. Change the job where nobody recognizes your talents and find one where people will discover the tiger within. Move somewhere you're comfortable. Find a way to earn a living that doesn't compromise your compassion, care, and interests. Self-responsibility, including learning to accept the consequences of making your own decisions, increases wisdom.
 Be Wise  
Uncomplicate your life. For many people, a sense of meaning in life is "created" from being overly busy and by complicating everything from work to love. Complexity can make a person feel important and wanted but it is not wisdom. Rather, it's a form of distraction from oneself and from dealing with issues in life that really do matter, like questioning what your purpose is and what life is all about. Complication rules out reflection, leaves you vulnerable to the mysticism of expertise, and can cause you to make things harder than they need to be. Keep it simple and wisdom will flourish.

Your Inner Circle, choose your inner circle wisely, Surround yourself with positive people, make them part of your inner circle, mentor very successful people,


How to Choose Your Inner Circle

"You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.", said renowned businessman Jim Rohn. Whether you agree with this or not, one thing is certain, the people around you matter and will have an impact on your life in one way or another. So choose your inner circle wisely. Surround yourself with positive people that can encourage you.

Negative, pessimist people are dangerous and will rob you of opportunity and growth. Surround yourself with honest people that can challenge you, you will find more opportunity for growth when you're not the smartest person in the room. Make sure these are open-minded people, close-minded people will of course challenge you, but will always think they are right and therefore always tell you-you're wrong when you don't agree with them.

Finally, if you have a certain goal or purpose in mind that you want to get to, reach out to people that are already there and make them part of your inner circle, and don't limit yourself on who this could be. I've heard stories from some very successful people of how effective this was for them. Stories that go as far as reaching out to some pretty powerful people and actually getting them to become their mentor.

Author and Entrepreneur Tim Ferriss have some great information on this topic that you can find on the web. This, of course, doesn't mean we push everyone that doesn't fall in this category out of our inner circle since we'll have cases where it's not practical or possible to do this. But as long as you identify where these people stand and the majority of your inner circle does fall in this category, you'll be more likely to lift these people up vs them dragging you down.

This topic is pretty popular and I'm certainly not the first to write about it, so you'll find a lot of information about exercises on how to rate your inner circle and a lot more advise on this topic. Bottom line, dedicate some time to this regardless of how you want to approach it. Do it now if you feel you need to make a shift from where you are or do it whenever you feel things aren't going in the right direction as you might find it difficult to change course without changing your crew!

By Hector Lopez - Author's Bio: My name is Hector Lopez. I grew up in a small town in south Texas. I graduated with a degree in Manufacturing Engineering and work brought me to Houston where I have lived most of my adult life and currently reside with my beautiful amazing wife and two extraordinary sons. I started my professional career working as a Manufacturing Engineer. Seven years into my career I took on a new role as a Performance Analyst.

In this role I was challenged to change the culture of the work force to a culture of continuous improvement and this challenged me to change my entire way of thinking and put me on a new path. This led me to finding my true passion, becoming a student of human behavior.

This also made continuous improvement become second nature to me and am always striving to find ways to implement what I learn as well as share it as a way of giving back to society. https://www.selfgrowth.com/articles/who-should-be-part-of-your-inner-circle

The Importance of Keeping it Simple (and how to do it)

As your small business grows, it’s not always easy to keep your processes simplified. The more mature an organization becomes, the more things accumulate and get in the way of performance.

Complexity can be a major hindrance to the overall productivity of an organization as well as to the morale of employees. Here are 6 suggestions to simplify your processes and keep your organization running smoothly:

1. Review Your Rules

When creating a list of company policies, make sure that there are not too many stipulations that get in the way of clearly identifying your objectives. Make sure that all rules are clearly stated so that it’s easy for your employees to know how they are expected to act.

2. Review Your Customer Experience

One way to find out how your organization could be simplified is to put yourself in the shoes of the customer. Go through the purchase process from the point of contact to the point of walking away with the product or service. Try several scenarios to ensure that all customers’ interactions are dealt with in an efficient and timely manner.

3. Determine Your Priorities

Make an ordered list of the tasks that you want to accomplish based on level of importance. Having the ability to prioritize is an essential aspect of promoting organizational efficiency, as it will keep you from wasting time on trivial pursuits before accomplishing essential tasks.

4. Seek the Shortest Path

When striving to get from point A to point B, there are likely several options. For example, you could notify your employees of recent company news by hosting a 20-minute meeting or you could send out an email that everyone can read in a matter of minutes. Choose the option that allows you to accomplish the desired result in the least amount of time.

5. Identify Issues

Be attentive and identify issues before they have the chance to get any worse. Don’t let a minor problem snowball into a major issue. The easiest time to solve an issue is now. Nip it in the bud. Keen awareness and due diligence will ensure that you don’t ignore something that deserves attention.

6. Simplify Management

As your small business begins to develop a leveled management structure, make sure that duties are clearly assigned. As a general rule, you should not require the same person to report to several superiors within their own department. Labor isn’t cheap. Take measures to ensure that your employees are working efficiently, and your organization will reflect their efforts.
