I have loads of questions to ask the elders but thought I would start with a simple one that would get them thinking about the notion of wisdom itself. I asked what was the wisest advice they'd ever been given and by who? Got a great reply that I put into action that VERY DAY in a work meeting :
Hello!You have made me think very hard.No.1
,.Pause for a few moments before you enter a situation. which might cause friction.In other words think before you speak.,
(Given to me by a sage of 85)
Speak to people how THEY, would like to be spoken to !,told to my youngest son by his American boss and he passed it on to me !!
Brilliant. My next request is on the way. Thanks elders
