Barry Schwartz’s comments on wisdom from TED. Well worth the time to view it. We don’t teach wisdom, we model it. We need wisdom, not rules to make our complex world work.
Schwartz uses the example of the wisdom of janitors. I can tell you first hand, that a caring janitor can make an environment positive for learning. Thank you to all my friends on the maintenance staff here at our little college. It’s clear that you care about what you do, and who you do it for.
