Who Is Wise?

August 23, 2011

How can we profit from the “mean” person who might be making marginally more? Leaving aside for the moment that the kinder boss might inspire others to do their jobs more productively, then the business will have a larger profit and then everyone can earn more. If everyone we meet is for a reason, then we can profit even from meeting the meanie.

 “Who is wise? He who learns from every person.” –  Mishnah

“When one meets someone who conducts himself properly, the smart one should learn from him how to behave. And when one encounters someone who is the opposite of righteous, he or she must learn from that person how not to behave.” –  The Baal Shem Tov
