What Does it Mean to be Smart?

What Does it Mean to be Smart?

Heading to New Orleans today to play in the middle of Jazz Fest.  In the meantime the above article is an interesting read.  My mom sent it to me today.  She was a teacher for most of her life.  The article is about the kinds of things we should be learning in school, that will make us more adaptable to the real world. 

My dad always taught me that people that are smart are not afraid to say, “I don’t know.” A lot of the article is based on being critical of oneself. Be humble so that you can be flexible as the facts you are presented with change.
