Today, just a quote from Confucius.
We seem to have such a high tolerance for mediocrity, and for letting things of importance pass. Confucius invites us to see the world afresh, to rediscover the urgency and depth needed to set things straight.
I wonder what kind of life and what kind of organisations we’d bring about if we took a vow like this seriously:
“Talent neglected or misguided, investigations into the nature of things not completed, what is right understood but not acted upon, and the lack of energy to rectify what is wrong – these are the things which pain my heart, which I exist to remedy.”
— K’ung Tzu (Confucius)
