Values to virtues

Ever since learning about the Samurai code, I’ve been fascinated by the difference between values and virtues. Values are what we believe, virtues are what we do.

So, how do they relate to one another? Our values become virtues when we take action and when that action costs us money (or something valuable).

Our virtues are the pillars of our personal strategy. That strategy only comes alive when we have to make trade-offs.
