Jack and the Smarts

We all heard the saying; "All work and no play make Jack a dull boy." Well, does anyone know the true meaning to this saying? Some people do and some people don't. This means that you can have all the book smarts in the world, but if you don't have any street smarts, then you're a dull person; one-dimensional. How can those type of people survive in this world where you need street smarts. Those type of people tend to stay to themselves. You need street smarts to make it in the world. Another reason you need street smarts is so no one manipulates you or treats you like crap.

There's another side to this story.... "All play and no work makes Jack stupid." Even though this is made up (probably is true), this actually makes sense. Having only street smarts is a bad thing. How can you survive in the corporate world without having book smarts/ an education? Probably can't survive at all. When it comes to life, you gotta have both. So Jack, listen closely... play around but do some work. Go pick up a book.
