Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis book review

A stunning book. It is fantastic. Outstanding. Wonderful. I urge you to read this book. I read this book when I was in my 20s. I hated that I was like the bookish intellectual. Zorba seems so much cooler.

But you know something, Zorba had lots of faults. He really wasn’t cool. He was fun, but he wasn’t cool. He was a lost soul. The bookish nerd learned from him, but Zorba learned from the nerd.

In the end, the main takeaway for me was that Zorba couldn’t play the sintari on demand. He had to have the right feeling in order to play.

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.
