Wisdom and improvisation

I have just watched Barry Schwartz speaking on wisdom.

Larry asserts that a wise person knows when to improvise. He uses the example of hospital janitors recognising patient needs and adjusting their work activities appropriately. These show classic improvisation skills such as:

  • Listening and being aware of what is needed
  • Yielding to the situation
  • Being changed by events

It is a great presentation.
