Empathy builds empires – Daniel Epstein
A bias to action is a bias to learning, to value creation and to realising human potential. Immersed in action we can find our wisdom, abundance and empathy. Action brings out leadership and leadership is demonstrated in work.
There is no stronger foundation for an empire.
We can’t know what is coming next, but we can work with others to bring it about. We can’t know what others need, but we can engage them in the work. We can’t do everything, but we can do at least one thing well.
Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. – Zen Proverb
