The 20th Century elevated the knowable. Knowledge, science, research was the key to understanding the world around us. So as many of us have grown up, the world has told us what a smart person will do and look like. They will be business people, educators, consultants - knowledge workers.
If we assume that only those who are the traditional knowledge workers can be generous with their minds, we are missing some of the greatest minds. The 21st Century has a different value than the knowable. This century we elevate the being. So who are the experts today? Who are the ones who share with the world how to "be?" Think about this as you meet people tomorrow and ask yourself this, "Does this person have a true heart to help me "become" more today?"
