Action, credibility, and restraint (comments on Confucius)

Raw link:

In this ~50-minute video I read some passages from the Analects of Confucius and provide my thoughts on them. In overview:

  • Avoiding the trap of overthinking. We want to be acting and be learning things that we have a use for.
  • How to do things in earnest and try to be the best version of yourself.
  • What it means to be the embodiment of your values, instead of merely advertising what you believe in.
  • Comments on honour and credibility.
