Knowledge Mobilization (KMb): Multiple Contributions & Multi-Production Of New Knowledge

KMbeing Knowledge Mobilization Post With The Most 2011

This is a repost of KMbeing’s most viewed post for the year 2011. My  KMbeing blog about Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) has evolved into a more philosophical and holistic approach to knowledge sharing in order to create social benefit through KMb to make the world a better place. As it has gained more popularity with this inclusive and humanist approach, it’s no wonder that one of this year’s most popular blog posts was about Knowledge & The Dalai Lama.

Knowledge & The Dalai Lama

Dalai Lama’s 18 Rules For Living (I particularly like #14).

At the start of the new millennium the Dalai Lama apparently issued eighteen rules for living. Since word travels slowly in the digital age these have only just reached me. Here they are.

1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
3. Follow the three Rs:
1. Respect for self
2. Respect for others
3. Responsibility for all your actions.
4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
8. Spend some time alone every day.
9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
11. Live a good, honourable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.
12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
14. Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality. (And I’ll add Be open to new and different knowledge. It ‘s a way to give to others and learn from others).
15. Be gentle with the earth.
16. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
