Reading through the comments on my posts on experience have stimulated to me think that along with the experience comes a certain wisdom that just is not there in the early years of ones career. I can’t help but think of Bill Bowerman, the great Oregon coach, when I first heard him speak in 1968. He was at that point in his career. What he was sharing with us was more than knowledge and experience, he was sharing with us his acquired wisdom. I also realize that is why I am so appreciative of someone like Joe Vigil. Perhaps the formula is Knowledge + Experience = Wisdom.
