Only 12 days left before I leave China, so this week I’ve been reflecting a lot about passing the leadership, group dynamics, and mentorship. Here are seven essays I wrote recently.
Fresh post: The Aim of Argument
Odds are, the latest office debate or family squabble isn’t worth winning. Most arguments are only tangentially related to your end goal.James Clear
The aim of argument or of discussion should not be victory, but progress. Just like when we are playing capoeira, we are not trying to destroy each other, but we are trying to sharpen our axe, trying to get better. The point of a capoeira game should not be a victory, but progress. And sometimes, in order to progress, we need to fall.
Ask yourself this:
