Knowledge sharing is about connecting. Expertise and experience can become the greatest barriers to connecting and to effective learning.

True sharing is only possible with an open heart and mind; from a learning mode of "I do not know" and when we experience ourselves connected with life.

We all know many methods and tools for learning how to connect but we have to practice and integrate this spiritual practice into our daily lives.

David Gurteen's comments: Jeannine presented this pretty much word for word in a presentation that she gave at the European KM Thought Leaders Forum in London in September 2007. I also see connecting as a spiritual activity and loved her slide so much I thought I would capture the essence of it here.

Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.
