What we learned together on Network Capital
Before we get started, here is a quote that had us thinking all week.

Network Capital in the Indian Express
Socrates once said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” As a technology entrepreneur, I have been struck by the growth of the ‘happiness’ industry that now includes gadgets, apps, devices and a flurry of content from self-proclaimed gurus who peddle life advice incessantly on social media platforms. Some suggest that the source of our troubles is that we reflect too much. Others claim that we reflect too little. In both cases, the focus of our reflection is our own self.
I suspect that is a problem.
To understand the conundrum of happiness and well-being, I reached out to my professor of moral philosophy at Oxford, Dr Jeff McMahan. He shared that being a morally good, and somewhat self-sacrificing, person is one of the best ways to have a life that is not only objectively good, but also subjectively satisfying. Being less self-absorbed and devoting time to projects that don’t necessarily serve our own interests leads to personal fulfilment of a higher order.
