BUT where can wisdom be found? (Job 28)

BUT where can wisdom be found?

    Where does understanding dwell?
No mortal comprehends its worth;
    it cannot be found in the land of the living....

Where then does wisdom come from?

    Where does understanding dwell?
It is hidden from the eyes of every living thing,
    concealed even from the birds in the sky....

And he said to the human race,

    “The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom,
    and to shun evil is understanding.”
Job 28

As we close out this year and begin to plan for next year 
it is natural to reflect and plan.
 This BUT verse makes me go hmmmm. 
We always seem to be seeking that next list of things to make us happy or successful. God's word is pretty clear on this one. 
Fear the Lord (He knows everything) 
Shun evil (Be nice)
