Director's Notes

Get Wisdom, Get Understanding!

Understanding tells us what is happening-wisdom tells why it’s happening.  Understanding gives us the facts-wisdom tells us what to do with those facts. Understanding yields insight into how a problem might be solved-wisdom tells us which solution to pursue, and when and how to pursue it. Read More...
