I met the author of the blog post linked below after he wrote the following in a discussion thread on LinkedIn: “It does not matter what you know until you know what it means.”
I reached out to the author to ask him for the source of this observation and to learn more about his work, and we had a nice e-mail exchange. These words are his own, and they struck me as profound and widely applicable. Turns out the author, Don Shaughnessy, is a CPA who has had an accomplished career, and is a truly gifted story-teller.
Several days later I was honored to learn Don wrote of my efforts to suggest insurance practitioners take a different approach to guide consumers to making better informed decisions by posting this on his great blog: http://moneyfyi.wordpress.com/2014/08/22/price-and-cost-are-different/
Thank you, Don —– it does indeed “not matter what you know until you know what it means.”
