Edu-Action

My Mission

By objective measures, most dictators start out as successful national leaders. They garner followers, create jobs, and strengthen their nations’ economies and defenses. However, they are not people of excellence.

In myself and others, I seek to nurture not mere success but excellence. Excellence exhibits and fosters personal virtue, local vitality, and global wellbeing.

I seek to accomplish this mission by engaging in counseling, writing, public speaking, and audio-visual productions consistent not merely with passive education but fulfilling edu-ACTION.

What is edu-ACTION?

I define edu-action as: Active, experiential, and applied learning that is grounded in ancient wisdom, informed by modern data, fueled by spiritual and social connection, enhanced by creativity, tempered by down-to-earth humility, and driven for practical transformation that leaves the world better than we found it.
