      From a practical standpoint, wisdom is to do now what you will be satisfied with later.

      This means that if you know doing something will be very beneficial later, then you do it now even if you don’t want to. The opposite is also true: a person who lacks wisdom will base his or her actions on what feels good right now instead of looking at the long-term picture.

      For example, say you want to eat a snack, but you aren’t hungry. You might say to yourself, “Well I know I shouldn’t eat this, but ... .” And then you decide to keep eating even though you are full. Your actions followed your feelings instead of wisdom, and it’s a decision that may lead to results you‘re not happy with later.

      Clearly, wisdom requires using self-control to choose to do what is better. A wise person looks at the end results instead of focusing only on his or her immediate circumstances. In short, wisdom is to do now what you will be satisfied with later.
