There is no shortcut to achieving eudaimonia. Loosely translated as human flourishing, eudaimon is all about living in good spirits. It can focus on achieving your unique potential, but also entails persevering in the face of challenge. And in the world of our work, it’s apparent we need to be increasingly flexible in the approaches we take. I’m fortunate to have had the opportunity to shape my work so that it’s become a source of energy and joy.
Earlier this year, I wrote about VkusVill, the Russian supermarket chain that is reinventing the retail industry. The Russian pioneer proves that you can rapidly scale a profitable chain of retail shops by letting frontline employees make all the important decisions. They do this with impressive results; the company is not only growing rapidly (CAGR 40%), it also manages to keep bureaucracy and hierarchy to a minimum, as upper management accounts for less than 10% of the total payroll.
