Let’s Explore Ambition

December 26, 2021 at 10:00 am - 11:30 am PST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


In this salon, debut host Dima Syrotkin explores the pros and cons of ambition. 

“A man’s worth is no greater than the worth of his ambitions.” – Marcus Aurelius

“If a person holds no ambitions in this world, he suffers unknowingly. If a person holds ambitions, he suffers knowingly, but very slowly.” – Alan Lightman, Einstein’s Dreams

“Yes the truth is that men’s ambition and their desire to make money are among the most frequent causes of deliberate acts of injustice.”Aristotle, Politics

“Ambition’ is ‘greed’ rebranded.” – Mokokoma Mokhonoana

As a highly ambitious person I think a lot about why it is such a core part of my character and whether that’s good.

In this salon I am curious to explore, among others, the following questions:

  1. When is ambition “good” and when not? When is it healthy and when not?
  2. If you are ambitious, do you know where it comes from?
  3. How do you stay happy despite having high ambitions? How do you both stay ambitious and don’t worry that you are not yet where you want to be?

We will start with a quick check-in and then go into a semi-structured discussion around the questions above or other questions that people bring. The plan is to end a quick discussion after an hour and a half.
