Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“I failed again.”
“Was it for lack of knowledge?”
“I did have the knowledge. But I didn’t have it available when I needed it.”
“This illustrates an essential aspect of Wisdom:
It’s not enough to have knowledge. You must also be able to access it when the situation calls for it – especially when conditions are less than ideal. (Antifragility)”
“How do you do that?”
“All practical knowledge requires practice.
Practice forwards. Every time you access the right knowledge at the right moment is a rep[etition].
Practice backwards. Every time you access the right knowledge in the past is also a rep – ‘In that moment I could have done x’.
Do this over and over and over again, in different contexts and under various conditions, until you internalize it.
I call this practice Operationalizing Knowledge.”
