Philosophy of Epicureanism Made Simple

I’m gunna need you to go ahead and come in on Saturday.

The guy that put this video did a spectacular job. How he made the connection between Office Space and Epicureanism is mind bottling. That’s what makes the difference between smart guys and bloggers.

The philosophy is user friendly. It is straightforward. It is easy to explain. It is also easy to do a quick check in when thinking about taking a course of action.

I can picture myself asking if doing something is going to lead to mid to long term happiness or to mid to long term pain. It is also a good way to frame things when asking someone for their opinion on what I should do.

There are lots of Epicureans out there that just don’t know there’s a name for the philosophy.

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.
