How many of us during our school years learned the teachings of Epictetus or Seneca? Perhaps you were lucky.
With the world as it is right now, there's a great need for the perennial wisdom of the ancients.
My guest this week, Kayvan Kian, has been leading a series of philosophical dialogues within the Young Leaders Forum he founded.
He condensed the essence of these conversations into his book What is Water? In it, Kayvan shifts the focus away from overwhelm and toward virtues and strategies that will help you grow stronger through it all.

In this episode, we talk:

  • The Bricks, Pillars and Schools metaphor
  • Magical celebrations
  • Learning to talk less
  • The power of dialogue
  • Cultivating virtue
