How to Be Wise

It's very uncommon to see people applying common sense.

They're just reliable, experienced, calm, and good people who live normal lives.

Some people assume that thinking from first principles means you don't make assumptions.

Wise people do something that challenges their minds every day.

The smartest people in the world don't necessarily make fewer mistakes.

There's one overarching theme to all the things I've learned from wise people: They make sure they get something positive and useful out of every interaction.
