Epicurus on Ethics

Skip to the 45 minute mark to get to the four truths (or claims) of Epicurian Ethics.

  1. The gods are nothing to fear.
  2. Death is nothing to fear.
  3. What’s good isn’t that hard to get.
  4. What’s bad isn’t that hard to endure.

This is an enlightened and egoistic hedonism. Or is it an early version of “find what feels good”?

I help people articulate what makes their service exciting, meaningful, and valuable to their stakeholders by identifying why they want to serve, what they are most proud of, what challenges they want to take on, and how they plan on showing results. I do that by researching issues, identifying clear positions, helping them align their positions with what their customers want, and managing work flow to deliver efficiently and effectively. In the future, I'd love to help companies improve on how they communicate with their customers.
