Imagine that your personal experience (a success or regret) is a nutritious meal you have just devoured. You have taken in facts, thoughts, feelings, and intuitions, like swallowing meat, potatoes, vegetables, and a scrumptious dessert. The experience is inside you, just as the food is in your stomach.
Your mind must now start a process that turns experience into wisdom just as your body begins the process that turns food into energy. The process of digestion transforms the meal in your stomach into healthy energy for your body. Without digestion, you would continue eating while you starve to death.
There is a process of mental digestion that turns experience into wisdom. Your experience is in your mind. It contains the knowledge, learning, and wisdom you need. Your successes and regrets are filled with insights, ideas, and understanding that have the potential to energize better answers and actions.
You need to digest your experience. You must chew on it, break it down, put it together in new forms, and absorb what is helpful. The four questions engage and guide your mental digestive system.
