Clio and the Digital Watch
The study of history doesn't get a fair shake. I'm not just talking about studying it for the sake of consuming facts, but putting it in context with respect to the present. In all facets of life: business, politics, leaders. We're constantly distracted by what's immediately in front of us that it's difficult to break away and reflect on things. That means considering external events and individuals, as well as being introspective. If we're curious and patient enough to do this, we'll find answers and insights to the challenges we face chronicled by some of the great minds of the past. "Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for." – Socrates Would you consider leaving a rating or review for the show on Apple Podcasts?
