About a year ago, I picked up a copy of a book entitled Wisdom. Compiled by Andrew Zuckerman, the book interviews over sixty well known writers, musicians, actors, politicians… and asks them all to share their definition of what wisdom means.

What I loved almost more than the book itself was the 60-minute full video that came with it. I remember watching bits of it, riding the Blue Line to and from work… and getting lost in thinking about what it means to be wise.
