Data, Information, Knowledge, Wisdom

On my run today, I decided to document and share wisdom so our family both present and future will have a method to overcome life's challenges and struggles.   Call it a plan B, an eject button - call it whatever - if you don't have a plan you are planning to fail. It took me a LONG time to fully understand the meaning of that.  I've heard beliefs are formed from teachings and experiences - so let me pass along some wisdom (my plan) to create a framework for others to build off of - much like open source software.  Below is a list of topics and stories that I will write about it in the weeks to come - they've all come via teachings and/or experiences and I will give credit where credit is due.
