A man could have been trained at 50 years with so many experiences. If he/she gets the same knowledge @ 20 years. He shall be very much different.
You can be speechless. You could be wordless as sometimes, words are not found that much great to explain the experiences.
Wiseness could be built up in the people. I am not against intelligence. But I have seen street intelligence can add power to man.
I do agree with the narrated idea. Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and griefs which we endure help us in our marching onward.
Experiences open you for the various things in the person. Things like values, words power, calculations, logic, emotions, multicolor personality and integrity.
I consider it as the richest thing.
I consider it a great source of knowledge. Of course, the charges are very high. Your time is invested in the matter. Of course, learning is very high. No educational faculty can make it practical level.
You can count as mistakes. You can also say that another name given to your mistakes. You cannot see the practical value of it, but it certainly adds wiseness.
I know both people. Highest level of university intelligence and class one level of experiences. It is said very promptly that Good decisions come from experiences. But experiences come from decisions.
I would like to share experiences of class one Enterprenuere here…
1. What do I mean by what he says he delivers? He’s a doer and not just a speaker.
He promised the Indian population their dreams and the hope that one day they could afford to own a car of their own because he and his company would launch the most affordable one for them. Enter the successful TATA Nano project.
2. Being one of the most important people in the world is not an easy task, yet he has managed to win over not only his staff, employees, peers but also the media with his soft-spoken tone and his systematic way of doing things. Rarely to be the one to show display of anger, he always deals with situations and conflicting views with an open mind and a calm demeanour.
3. A known workaholic, Ratan Tata was never known to slack off from his work, making him a great example for those working around him. He emphasized that everyone should think big and never discouraged others from creating a larger picture; in fact, he encouraged them to be creative and add value to the company.
Visionary leaders are those who build new possibilities and who pave the way for innovation and greatness.
They drive social progress.
Thirty years ago Ratan Tata authored an unofficial document called the Tata Plan outlining the blueprint for the company. Both the global presence of TATA and the launch of the Nano is the result of that work.
4. I have always said that one of the hallmarks of a great leader is how well-read he is. Ratan Tata is known to have a fondness for technology and a great grasp of what is happening worldwide. It is an important aspect of personal branding to develop YOU as a well-rounded individual.
Even though Ratan Tata is a businessman he is also an ardent collector of art and is passionate about cars and technology and occasionally even flies his plane. He cultivates his personal interests which is a great way to build a unique identity.
5. He is a risk-taker, but one who does so with utmost confidence-inspiring all those who work for him and under him to place their unwavering faith in him. “I don’t believe in making the right decisions. I take decisions and then make them right,” he had once famously remarked.
6. Being a great leader isn’t about checking all the right boxes but is about making sure you inspire, drive and spark your drive in others, so that they along with you, can bring about change, social innovation and progress.
Experiencing is different and teaching is different. Knowing is not enough, doing is important.
