I won't say the expression on the radio but there it is in print. That is exactly a question that I had the courage to ask people on a number off occasions.

Let's face it it could be true that the smarter your stuff is the stupider you are. You see knowledge is not just knowing something it's knowing how you got the knowledge and how to do that.

This is a tribute to a man who mentored me from a distance, the incomparable world-class broadcaster and motivator, Earl Nightingale.

I think I'm well known to many people because I have the reputation of persistence and in some cases real resilience. Indeed I am well known in many ways for pressing on.

So may I be a little bit of a curmudgeon about that practice and then tell you about one that's r…
