We ran across this article and immediately thought that we would share it here. It’s called What is the Difference Between Being Smart and Being Wise.
In it, is a fascinating video of Alibaba founder Jack Ma explaining the difference between smart and wise. Here’s an excerpt of one that was particularly interesting:
Smart people know what they want, wise people know what they don’t want. Wise people know that “this is not what I want.” So they will not make a lot of silly mistakes. But smart people always say, “I want this, I want that.”
For more from Jack Ma, you can dive into the rest of the video.
