I’ve always loved hammocks for as long as I can remember. I would usually solve the world’s problems (and sometimes my own) while lying on my hammock as I pray, meditate, and gain wisdom from above. On July 30, 2017, it finally occurred to me that I was being very selfish in keeping all this wisdom to myself, so I began filming my popular, “5 Minutes of Dave’s Hammock Wisdom” video series. After producing a couple hundred, I then realized that not everyone had access to the internet to benefit from them.
That’s when I decided to share with the rest of the world my “Secrets from the Hammock, Uncommon Wisdom for Uncommon Times” that I’ve acquired over the decades. Thus, my fourth book was born.
We humans can absorb only so much wisdom in one sitting — each chapter is packed with so much, that it requires focus for proper implementation. Wisdom can only change your life if you allow it to marinate into your soul throughout the day. One nugget of wisdom is more than enough for you to chew on at any one moment. If you find something that speaks to you, stop reading and contemplate on it for a while. Think of ways to implement it before reading more.
Many decisions we make today do not seem wise by historical standards. Education can come from our parents, schools, and universities. “Street” wisdom can come from the “hood,” but I believe true wisdom comes from God. King Solomon wrote:
“Wisdom is mightier than a strong man, and a man of knowledge than he who has strength.”
Wisdom is to be greatly desired, or else she will not reward us.
