By cultivating a bigger interest in our past and present we might just yet make the future a better place to spend our time. Eastern philosophy focuses on these very aspects by creating practices that help us gain a greater appreciation for all of life. As well as focusing on how we might yet find better ways of behaving and accepting others to do good rather than harm. Becoming a global citizen for good. Values help us define the right problem areas to focus on not just for our own personal gain but also for the collective. This should also be considered in Business. What do l want to achieve?
