There is scant intellectual curiosity in the world today, and a commensurate low level of aspiration to greatness and true value creation. This is among the most consistently surprising and disappointing observations I have had during my life walkabout. For the past few decades I’ve suffered knee problems and have had numerous surgeries, which have led me to visit with some of the leading knee surgeons on both coasts. It has been amazing to me that none of those with whom I met displayed even the slightest interest in understanding the root cause of knee problems, instead focusing on the simple issue of whether or not a particular ailment warranted surgery. In the times when my situation did not I was simply sent on my merry way and told to come back if/when I was ready for surgery. The same can be said for most doctors, who seem content to treat ailments rather than understanding and counseling their patients on prevention and healthy living.
